This is for the Fat Folks:

With this video I'm not saying that most obese people are healthy because the sad truth is that many if not most are not, but the reason for that is not because they are "obese", it's because we are being brainwashed into thinking that no matter what we do, if we are fat then we are unhealthy, by the 44 billion dollar a year weight loss industry. After years of trying to lose weight and still being big many people give up on trying to eat right and being active -figuring, hey, if I eat healthy and bust my ass exercising and I still can't get "healthy" (ie no longer big) then what is the point?

We must remember that the media, advertisers, and the diet industry are selling us dissatisfaction with our bodies in order to make a profit. The obesity industries, including commercial weight-loss programs, weight-loss drug purveyors and bariatric surgery centers, make BILLIONS every year and every year their profits climb. These industries make a huge profit from training people to hate bigger bodies and to think that big automatically means unhealthy.

Many studies have proven that big people who eat right and are active are just as healthy as those who are thinner, and much more healthy than thin people who don't eat right and exercise.

Health is important. But health isn't conducive to size.

Be active, eat healthy foods, love your body and yourself, and don't let the media brainwash you into thinking that you can tell someone's health by their size.

Selling fear, is what america does.

The whores need their money you know! Not to mention their egos stroked when they get to change laws to "protect " us from ourselves.

We have that codex crap coming where the whores will rake in more cash fro prescriptions for VITAMINS, by ALLOPATHIC doctors who get 2weeks of nutrition training. [ whoop de doo ]

Someone should start a class action lawsuit against codex, for forcing people to see doctors they don't believe in, not to mention infringing on my rights of free choice.
