Shame, shame. This is sad to me. Not everyone who is overweight is lazy or has poor self control when it comes to food. My boy was born with congenital adrenal hyperplasia which would kill him if he doesnt take his meds. He's on a med that controls his salt/electrolite levels and steroids to slow down the growth factor from too much testosterone. He was extremely overweight, in the column of obese for his age. This is the crap that I have had to work against since he was young. It's horrible to judge ppl the way u guys are, especially when it's unavoidable sometimes. Do u know how painful it is to see ur child cry bcuz he's overweight when it's not even his fault. It's ppl who judge like u that Ive had to protect my boy from. I will say that his teenage metabolism has kicked in and he's gained much more height thus evening out his weight. My kids see others and are compassionate. They dont judge and they accept ppl for who/what they are. Why? Bcause it takes all kinds to make the world go 'round. You only limit urselves when u think this way.

When the dust clears, will they be the ones who went into 2012 fat and came out thin finding themselves the sole survivors of human kind? They say God works in mysterious ways. Will they be the ones stepping forth on a charred Earth, planting the seeds of a new Human future... all because they 'fueled up' beforehand?
Not one documented case I am aware of where people are starving has there been 1 person that just stayed fat

It's got nothing to do with Big Macs , french fries or anything else that the O.P and others in this thread think.
It's to do with CALORIES not FAT in the diet.
The big guy from Lost obviously still kept his hearty appetite and ate heaps of stuff like bananas and whatever else was around in abundance.
I know overweight people who don't even go near fast food outlets.
It's just a stereotype that seems to make the non overweight feel good about themselves while they gorge themselves on fresh food.

This is exactly what I am talking about. You should be more pissed off than others that people who "choose" to be obese would use your Sons rare condition as some kind of excuse...... " Its my glands"
They make a mockery of his illness. It is no different than faking any other disability.
