More American women are more obese than ever - NY Daily News I know that there are millions of Americans regardless of gender that are obese. Funny how the article tries to pin some of the blame on celebrities that endorse products that contribute to weight gain. How about this novel idea? No one to blame but yourself. Its your choice to have a poor diet. Its your choice not to do some physical activity. So convenient to blame others!

The OP should post pictures of themselves so we can all determine whether they are fit enough to criticize others for their weight.

Well, there certainly is a MAJOR problem with obesity. I largely attribute that to poor dieting. I watch my SIL "try" to be healthy, according to what she says. Yet, she is constantly drinking soda, eating ramen noodles, drinking frosties, chips, etc. And no physical activity.

I personally don't understand how people can live like that. But whatever. Men nowadays like huge jiggly asses, right? Maybe they have a lust for jiggly bellies, arm fat, and everything else?

Its the same story over and over ....

Its very simple

Calorie deficit - you have to burn more calories than you put in your mouth.

Exercise and diet.

Everything else is major BS.

Excuses do not burn calories.

It's an instant gratification society. If people can't lose 10 pounds a week, they don't stick with cutting calories. I personally know 2 people who, instead of reducing calories, opted to have gastric bypass surgery. Even though they each had to lose a considerable amount of weight to get down to an acceptable surgery weight. Which makes no sense to me, if you can modify your behavior to lose upwards of 50 pounds to qualify for surgery, why not just continue until you are at a normal weight?

Agreed. And only cops can criticize other Police for their decisions. And, only other politicians can remark on the political moves of Congress, President, et al.


While we're at it, only movie producers can be film critics and the only time I want analysis of rape cases is by either the victims of rape or from someone who is a rapist.
