I live in the 3rd fattest country in the world.
It’s kind of scary. This country has so much excess that even poor people have too much food. Too much food combined with a lack of physical exercise leads to unhealthy fat people.
The number 1 cause of death in this country is heart disease. This has direct and proven links to obesity, exercise, smoking, and diet. These are the main influences and are all controllable.
The cost of accommodating fat people and their increased size is considerable. It’s a cost which is not just paid by fat people but by society. The best way to deal with this dramatic downturn in national (and international) health is prevention. By making people aware of how easy it is to maintain a healthy weight and fitness level we can stop people ballooning. You cannot trust your body as to how much to feed it. You have to look at the content of your food and decide if you are giving yourself an appropriate amount.
How do you do this? Well, first you take an output, and use feed it back into the input. You weigh yourself. Daily. Keep a running average and notice trends. Every kilogram you put on is 32,216 KJ of energy in excess of what your body needed. If you are putting on 500g a week (long term average) you need to cut 2,300 KJ from your daily diet. That’s about 500 calories.
Make this change, maintain it, and see how the graphed data reflects it.
The second change people need to make is to get active. It has been shown that physically active obese people are healthier than sedentary people of a healthy weight.
So get some exercise. Cardio preferably. Biking, running, those sort of things. Elevated heart rate is what you are looking for. And you want to do this daily. Cycling to work. Running up and down stairs at lunchtime.
For people who are already fat, you are going to have to change your life. you can’t go on a diet or just adopt an exercise program and think you can do it for a bit.
This is forever.
The wonderful book you need to read is this http://www.fourmilab.ch/hackdiet/www/hackdiet.html
I’m not even going to discuss the many ways in which fat people make others lives bad simply by being large. We know them.
To fat people who don’t think they have a problem: I hate you.

I am done with this planet. Somebody kill me.
An “unidentified entrepreneur” is trying to profit off of the Trayvon Martin tragedy by selling shooting range targets inspired by the slain 17 year-old. The target is reportedly shaped like a hoodie and features cross hairs on the front. A bag of skittles are tucked into the pocket, and the left hand holds a can of iced tea. As I’m sure you’ll recall, these were the only items Trayvon Martin was “armed” with when he was gunned down by George Zimmerman on February 26th of this year. The seller of the targets has made it very clear that although his aim is to make a buck from the tragedy, his sympathies are with George Zimmerman. From WTSP: “According to an advertisement for the targets that had been posted on a popular firearms auction website, the sellers stated they ‘support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug.’ (via Trayvon Martin-Inspired Shooting Range Targets Sold Online?!)
Fuck it. I’m done. I am fucking done.
