Watched nearly all of it - philipa, severely obese, packet of biscuits in the background.This isnt because they dont want to it is because their physiology and pyschology prevent them from doing it.
I'm sorry that it touched a nerve m8. It wasn't intended to. Really good post.this thread touched a nerve
Just because you don't like BMI doesn't mean it's clinically useless. Being overweight ain't good for you.Being a bit over weight means precisely fuck all to fitness and overall health and this superficial drive for perfection is damaging. People carrying a few extra pounds are labelled obese from people too lazy to differentiate
The evidence clearly shows it's not about self control. It's about humans living in an obeseogenic environment they never evolved to live in.taxation is a stupid idea too, why should I, as someone who enjoys most things in moderation have to pay more because other people have no self control?
being a fat cunt isn't always by choice.
JMaking unhealthy stuff expensive would cut that shit right out and make being a healthy weight easy for everyone.
I hope you can sort yourself out one day, I really do. I don't think your situation is typical though - most overweight people in this country are simply poorly-educated and therefore ignorant of the dangers of a lack of exercise and bad diet.
A few years back I was around 18 stone (@TdC saw me). This despite me always having exercised regularly, out on the bike all the time. I was simply eating too much, probably in the order of a couple of hundred calories too many each day. All it took for me to sort it was the Myfitnesspal app. I was already on board with the exercise, that part was easy. Once I knew exactly how much I could eat to lose/maintain weight, I had no issues and lost the lot. I'm 13 stone now, about 10lb overweight currently, but I've signed up for another marathon this year so will lose that no problem. Most people who look at me would laugh if I said I was overweight.
Ultimately there's no one solution to obesity on a population level. You have to attack the problem from a few angles - early education, bad food taxes, healthy transport infrastructure, NHS operations, etc.
Hey @BloodOmen didn't know you have a kid. Also that took some guts to lay out for everyone to read about. That's the thing with depression, it needs to be put on public display and vented. How are you managing at the moment?
Also, i think most people are glad to speak constructively about it, but for some who have no initial understand about the subject might think it's something you easily can push aside.
Not comparable, but I have some fucking annoying case of separation anxiety, so with each breakup it really takes some time to get back up on the feet, and have to struggle to maintain any sort of regular schedule. As of now, i stay up way too late, paused my work, just being really passive, though it's helping out going to see a (what do you call them in English, psychologist? Mentalist?) once a week, just relying on some sort of scheduled pattern really helps.
If 70% of British men are overweight/obese then it's helping the masses to overcome the faults of an unnatural environment we never evolved to live in.Its punishing the masses for the faults of the few
Tiny number of people that would still benefit from food having some actual nutritional value.It's probably the people who eat the most shite yet keep a healthy weight that dislike the idea the most. Can't think why.
