A lot of people arent obese, but they get labelled it, get depressed then actually become obese as a result of poor choices. Its like the self-fulfilling prophecy theory. If you go by BMI alone (which seems to be the standard that things like this are measured against) I am Obese, as are possibly most of the guys on this forum. Our diets would also be criticised as being too high in fat, too much red meat, etc etc, yet I doubt anyone could call us unhealthy once they actually took the time to assess us properly.

If all the time and effort that went in to bashing certain foods/lifestyles and the subsequent labels that come with it was channeled in to proper education then there wouldnt be a problem in the first place. But then the multi-billion dollar business that is 'health' food would collapse and the American and British Government would lose a lot of money...

It sucks

Carl.
One of the crazy things that fat Head reveals is that heavier people live longer. And those with higher cholesterol live longer.

I am not talking morbidly obese folks, but I think you get the picture.
