Forcing people to do anything usually results in failure.
People who WANT help will seek it. People who do not, will not suddenly accept the responsibility, and certainly will baulk at forced counseling.
Would you also advocate forced counseling for smokers? drinkers? sky divers?
I don't like that world...

I will repeat this. In my family, the underweight eat far more than the overweight. Ie. my son is 6 2, and very thin at 150 lbs, and yet he can eat anything in sight, including fast foods if we ever bought those, which we don't, and never gain more than 5 lbs, and stil be very thin. And I can't afford to buy him all the extra whey powders and the massive lbs of food as snacks to build him up. He is like his grandfather who was 6 2, and would vary between 150-170, and only looked lean and good at 170. He could eat 3 meals a day, tons of protein and all the goodies in sight, and never gain weight.
The ones who struggle with weight eat very small meals at a time. 1 meal a day, and yogurt, nibbles of cheese, fruit, and do not lose weight. They live on vitamin supplements.
So its not what people think. It has to do with metabolism and also income on what you could buy for food, to some extent. Also relates to age and child birth, for those overweight ones were slim till mid age themselves.
What really pi$$es me off on threads like this, is:
the nazi sadistic controllers know all of this and are relying on ignorance and ego of the masses to give them victims and sacrificial lambs and they can take a flying leap out of here.edit on 27-6-2012 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
