Fat people health problems


Sick of listening to fat people talking about health problems like its some affliction that doesn't have anything to do with them being 100+ pounds overweight.

re: Fat people health problems


considering that obesity is a disease (i use that work lightly) that affects the lower socioeconimic classes, you're paying for it.

re: Fat people health problems


one of the guys in my office is 400 lb easy. he told me last week he "ripped" into his doctor. He said he'd had been having kidney problems for 5 years and he was sick of it. They needed to get this under control.

In the meantime his desk is filled with potato chips, crackers, etc. he brings a fresh 2 liter of mountain dew every morning.

It is time we start pushing for an eating utensil ban. No fork should have more than 4 tines. Spoons should be limited to teaspoon size. Large capacity utensils must be regulated.

Obesity is a symptom of a worse condition.

Most of the time (probably all of the time), it's a psychological issue that has to do with turning to food for comfort.

Also, so many fat people make themselves fat by spiking their insulin levels by eating foods that put too much glycogen in their body. Because of this, they store their excess in their adipose cells, which contributes to them feeling lethargic and ornery. Then they move less because of their poor health and send themselves further into eating more sugar for comfort.

Vicious cycle. Fat people should be educated that high fat and high protein diets are the best way to go. Carbs from vegetables and fruit and a few select breads. And exercise by doing something fun.

You're forgetting about plates and bowls. They're too big, and people shouldn't be allowed to eat off of big plates and bowls.

I know you're joking, but some of the public schools actually have crazy rules like this now. My wife is a public school teacher at a "healthy choice" school; she was telling me that they can't have salt and pepper shakers on the table. Crazy.

Cool little way to trick your brain into thinking you're eating more than you are is to eat off smaller plates. A little tip for any fatties perusing this thread.

I'm not obese by any means but I also make choices for myself on a daily basis to prevent that. I don't eat fried food more than once a week and sometimes not at all. The majority of the drinks I consume are zero calorie. (unsweet tea or water) I eat plenty of grilled fish, grilled chicken, roasted veggies and things like that. I have a couple pieces of chocolate every day. (that's for my sweet tooth) Exercise is occaisional at best but I do walk alot.

A 2-liter bottle of Mountain Dew a day! Holy crap! What is that? 2000 calories? He'd probably drop 50 lbs in one year with the switch to a zero calorie drink.

As stubborn as some people can be around the Political Board, there are a lot of legitimate complaints around here.

This is not one of them.

Disagree

The vast majority of health concerns that we "treat" people for are rooted in diet and obesity. It oftentimes circles back to irresponsible behaviors/habits of the individual.

Obesity contributes to the following:
Coronary artery disease
Diabetes
Chronic muscle/joint/ back pain

Guess what this leads to:
Increased use of hospital/clinic resources
Disability / loss of productivity

Guess who indirectly pays for this...

Maybe you don't think this is political, but I think it can be spun that way.

Not in regulating what people are allowed to eat, but our society has been horribly lied to when it comes to understanding nutrition.

I believe our public education health classes should teach the benefits of a lower carb, higher protein/fat diet.

If people knew they could be healthy and thinner by eating foods like bacon, burgers, cheese, and creamed spinach, they may be more inclined to live a healthier lifestyle.

One issue causing obesity is that people eat food that doesn't keep them full. Could you eat 1500 calories worth of chicken in one sitting? Chicken is and can be rather low in calories while supplying a tremendous amount of protein. You won't be hit with a "Oh God I have to eat soon!" feeling after a few hours.

Eat pizza with 200 grams of carbs? Have a soda? French fries? Apple pie for dessert?

You'll feed starved by the next meal.
