I don't understand fat people?
Why don't they go on diets and excercise and try to be healthier? It's very sick looking, all that excess fat hanging around. I'm not trying to be rude...it's true. I'm skinny, but i'm naturally like that, i've been like that all my life, i have a very fast metabolism, so i know some of you are gonna say i don't know how it feels and crap.But if i was fat, i would definitly be on a diet and watch what i'm eating. I'm proud of the people that are at least trying. But i just don't understand the people that are so overweight and they don't even care. They eat like double the amount they should be, and eat a whole bunch of greasy, fat food. Do they honestly not care????

Alana, Since we were born, The american culture as well as many other cultures throughout the world have taught us to eat as much as we can and leave the food for no one but ourselves.

If you think about it, As soon as we are old enough to sit up our mothers would take our hands and hit them together. Saying "patty cake, patty cake baker's man.
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Pat it and roll it and mark it with "B"
And put it in the oven for Baby and me"
or,
"Jack Sprat could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean,
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean"

So on, and so forth. Also, the marketing of fast foods dipped in grease and other various unhealthy substances reach out to these children. providing them with toys and "Happy Meals"
It's quite sad.
But there's your answer.

Has it ever crossed your mind that the person might have a Thyroid problem? Some people are born with a problem they have no control over.. sometimes its not their choice whether they want to be fat or not. They just have no choice. In other cases.. what if the person chose to eat whatever they want because its their life? I mean.. if they want to eat x amount of food, then hey, its their choice.
I actually had a family member who was afraid of losing weight because once she lost the weight, all the saggy skin would hang around..

live and let live =]

some ppl do exersice and diet but cant lose the weight. most ppl o care but cant lose the weight


crmn8a
Its not that they don't care, it's just that, some might hate themselves so much that food is there only comfort. Or others may just like eating alot and try to find flaws in others to give them a reason to keep on living thins horrible life.

Well not everyone is fat just because of food!
Ive put on weight because of my polycystic Ovary condition, its one of the symptoms, and i cant lose this weight because its a symptom and once i tried to take the weight off it will come right back!!

You dont understand and realise from your ignorance, that some people have a genetic background of being overweight and as much as a "diet" they would go on it would come right back once they got off it.

Diets dont work alone, healthy excersize still is good, but some people cant excersize because they have a bad heart and lungs because of being overweight so they cant walk/run for long or else they get sick.

Also diets arnt that healthy for you, you need a balanced eating plan you still need certain foods just a moderate intake of that type of food not cut it out completley everyone needs to snack every once or twice a week.

Exactly, your skinny so you really dont know what it would be like, unless youve been chubby/overweight before how can you just assume and tell them what to do? sometimes it just cant be helped!!

Some people have a big bone structure so even if they lost weight they would still seem overweight because their bones are bigger and thicker.

Just because people are overweight doesnt mean they dont watch for they eat not all fat people eat excessively, like me, my issue with weight wasnt from eating it was a condition and as much as i try the weights not coming off.

Chubby people can be alot healther than some skinny people, just because your skinny doesnt mean your healthy.

Trying doesnt make a different all the time, sometimes you just need to accept your weight and be happy in your skin and enjoy who you are and the people who cant accept you as chubby because of a condition or whatever are shallow like your being and dont deserve to have decent people in their lives.

Dont judge a book by its cover!!!
You dont even know why they are overweight
Do you honestly think they enjoy it??
Seriously.


dave h
you are ignorant some of the best people i know are overweight they can have physical probems that prevent them from being active they can have an eating disorder or an extremely busy lifesttyle that keeps them from eating healthy and in the end its what you have done with your life not what you look like that matters but i guess at least at your funeral people can say well at least she was slim

depression, stress, environmental forces at work. Not everyone leads a charmed life and some actually have medical problems and that may cause a "I do not care attitude". To some if there is little or no chance for improvement, they think why try! If you feel that strongly they maybe you should fine a career in nutrition and try to help those you view as not caring.

some of them. But it is an addiction. Fatties have addictions to food. To them food is like a drug. A fatty may also reach a point to where loosing say 30 lbs is just a drop in the bucket. So, they then slack off on the diet and gain it back. It's a debilitating cycle. They do care, in fact most fatties are very insecure about their weight.

Everyone has their prison, for some it's their own body.


Grim Reaper
just as it's not easy to lose weight, it's also not easy to gain for those who are skinny.

maybe they think your an ugly corpse nasty skeleton why don't you gain some weight cause you'll never be a model and you will be more healthy with some meat on your bones


inconspicuous.s.n.
Alana's question is valid, but she's young and a bit naive, so it comes off as rude. she doesn't know any better and is obviously young. put away the knives, people.

p.s. yes, they care. this is america, a place where glossy magazines and 500 calorie sandwiches can somehow coexist. how can you ever be truly confident here, even if you aren't fat?


Miss Jinxy
You're right, you DON'T understand what it's like. You're just so perfect being so thin, no worries and you never have to say no to yourself. If you're fat and you have to diet, you have to say no. You're craving chocolate or something greasy? No. You're hungry and you really want to eat some pasta or a sandwich? No. Plus, you don't understand what it's like to hate the way you look. It isn't a motivating feeling, it's the kind of feeling that makes you want to give up. Kind of like when you try hard and study, and you still fail a test. Does it always motivate you to study harder next time? Not really. For most people, it makes them feel worthless and like trying won't help.

You don't understand fat people because you're spoiled by the way you look. You have no room to judge. Have you ever been on a diet before? I have, it's not easy. I'm actually dieting right now. It's a LOT of frustration. My boyfriend is just like you, eat whatever he wants and never gain a pound. He judges me on dieting too, as if he knows! He can eat chipotle and ice cream every day, he can drink all the soda he wants, when he's hungry he runs to mcdonalds at two am. He doesn't know what it's like to actually have to force yourself to go hungry, and I doubt you do, either.

You really need to understand that the problem that overweight people experience is not just about food and diet. Some people are genetically pre-disposed to being overweight, if they ate 4 times healthier than you, they may still end up 40 pounds heavier.

You should give people a break because life is not that easy for everyone. It has a lot to do with the way that overweight people are treated (pretty much like garbage) its sad and ridiculous. Maybe you should consider why you are disgusted by how other people look? Should something that has nothing to do with you at all-- does not affect you at all bother you? It may reflect a fear you have for yourself, (i.e. that one day other people will treat you like you are completely not-worthwhile or it makes you feel more normal and accepted.

What do looks really matter? Being beautiful in high-school is not going to give you a ticket to a happy life, believe me. Why should we judge how other people get to live their lives. How would you feel if someone was calling you fat and judging you for what you eat/ telling you what you can and can't eat?

wanna is right, they have a pleasure pathway in their brain that only food can satisfy. It takes a tremendous amount of strength to fight it.

Warning to you, dear, I am naturally slight too, but middle age turns down the metabolism and while I'm still 105 or less, I can't eat like I used to and maintain that. There are a lot of chubby middle aged women who used to be skinnies like you. Pride goeth before a fall.


paul s
believe it or not no matter what some people do they just are naturally like that.

Some people can't stay thin. You shouldn't judge people by the way they look. I agree with you on some terms but my one friend is 4' 8'' and has trouble staying skinny. Not everyone is like that. However, some people are lazy or are afraid to loose weight.

You say youre skinny because you are naturally like that. Well,sometimes people are bigger because they are just naturally like that. Everyone's body is different. Metabolism is different in everyone. You probably have an awesome metabolism now which allows you to burn off your fat quicker, but who knows, in 10 years or even less, you could have a lower metabolism and balloon up. So dont be too quick to judge people.


Gabrielle
If you're talking about the morbidly obese people, I agree. However, it is possible to be "fat" and quite healthy. By fat, I don't mean these people who can no longer fit out of their doorway.

On the other hand, being too skinny is also a problem and equally as unhealthy.

Why is it any of your business what bigger people do? I bust my *** off to be "skinny" but honestly, who wants to be skinny? Certainly not me because skinny is OUT and curvy is in. Your way to ignorant girl. You have no idea what it's like to even be 15 pounds over weight. I hope you end up being fat and I hope people laugh in your face, you idiot.


zinubes
I really wanted to rip you a new one for what you just said, but I am going to just assume that you are a cold hearted witch that you have no compassion for others and you are self centered, self righteous, and should not be judging others when you have not walked in their shoes! Did your mother not teach you any manners! You really need to grow up!


Leah
Wow, this is a bit rude. Some people actually have medical problems, such as hypothyroidism, that causes weight gain. There are also people that are on medications that cause them to gain weight.


Domino
Hey its not easy to loose weight. Fat is because of an addiction to food. addictions are hard to overcome. i know this for fact


kareer
I guess you are perfect!


Leah
umm what kind of question is this lady! it seems very rude. A lot of people who are obese can't do anything bout it.... like genetics. Nice to know your skinny..... those fat people may think oh look at that skinny girl maybe she should gain some weight. Im sorry about my meaness... but i think this question is just plain selfish. if you don't like looking at fat people than don't look at them!

There is a few factors that obese people can not handle.

Some antidepressants cause people to gain weight. Not to mention people with hypothyroid has a lack of energy.

As you have a hyperthyroid people with a low one can not function as you do.


Christine
some people have diseases and emotinal problems that inhibit thier ability to lose weight. Not everyone finds annorexia appealing. I hope someday you have babies, your husband leaves you, and you never lose the weight.

Either they don't care, or they're incredibly stupid. To put yourself at such a great risk of early death or disability seems to defy all logic. Eating to please your taste buds has become a problem of sweeping proportions as obsesity, diabetes, heart disease, and so many others have all become epidemics in this country. Yet no one seems to care despite the incredible rise in health care costs, just in the last twenty years, all due to fat people taxing the system beyond its means.

Wow, look at all the thumbs ups and downs! It appears that fat people and fat people sympathizers (probably liberals) outnumber us three to one.

There are so many excuses going on here, that it defies all logic. PCOS doesn't cause weight gain... come on. Poor diet and lack of exercise cause PCOS... they also cause weight gain and a truckload of other diseases. Just look at the civilizations that have none of these diseases. They eat natural foods and get out and work. Geeezzz.... this isn't rocket science, for Pete's sake.
