why do americans think it's ok to be morbidly obese? do they get taught this in school?
keep these bastard pigs fat and happy and never see a revolution...
It comes from being lazy as fuck. I'm an american and when i tell some of the lard asses they need to start doing some exercise and dieting i get a million different excuses. My favorite is "its genetic", no bitch, eating fucking mcdonalds three times a day is not genetic.
I'm going to need to see some evidence of that. I have never seen a 35 stone man eating pancakes in Britain. I saw it almost everyday in the US. That doesn't include the other fatties wobbling about the place in scooters
I dunno how do 3rd world faggots like yourself manage to afford the internet let alone a computer?
>Hmm...He was behind of it...
Feel free to use any britsh media outlet you're allowed to use in the british.SHIT I FORGOT you need a search engine license to do that, FUCK.Can you rent one at the library SHIT you cant do that either, that is license evading.Well shit britman i gunno how you're going to get youre source in this situation
I know this is bait but "35 stone" is a measure of weight and "man" is a male human
Stone is not a "measure" it is a british shorthand. Its part of the obsolete system that the Americans are the only one to use and they dont even use stone. Learn the universal system of measures or stop using the internet,
Metric is used for scientifics and math
Imperial is used for everyday situations
How far is that car from me
How many ounces in that cup.
There is not a single country that only uses metric, they use a combo of imperial and metric. The brits are the only ones who like to think other wise
I dont want to link something to you and get you in trouble with the government. Some how i feel that your government would send a warrent to my government and i would get in trouble for aiding a british citizen in breaking the law
Sure, not all, but when around 70% are overweight and 35%+ are obese.. Visiting america the amount of morbidly obese was mind boggling. I've met a handful of morbidly obese people in my life here in nordic europe..
Saw more during that two weeks than I've seen here in my life.
Now that I think of it neither have I, tho Im not american so.. But have met many.
Oh come on. You know that's not how it works! All one has to do is scream "FAUX NEWS!" or "DAILY MAIL!" or "CNN" and that means the article isn't accurate at all and no further information is required.
Thats fun to play with. Fun fact: There are over twice as many black women than are obese than overweight ones. Overweight BMI 25-29.9, obese >30
BMI is such a poor tool to use for this. Why don't they use body fat % rather than BMI? Not discrediting your source (haven't looked at it if I'm honest) .. I just don't care for BMI at all.
Oh me neither. It's just the best tool we can use to measure the obesity rates. I remember seeing one research (like 10 years ago) that included body fat ratio and everything and found it interesting, but it was for a completely other country and sample size was small. Would prefer if we had some real numbers on the issue not just for america but all the countries. % fit people who are considered overweight or even obese would be interesting to look at.
BMI says nothing about obesity at all, without assumptions. A better measure of obesity might be diabetes (if done properly). Figure out what the fuck you're talking about before running your mouth.
well couple thousand years ago being fat wasn't so easy to accomplish. You either had to be in a position of non-manual labor or royalty who could eat as much as they wanted without worry of food costs. Humans accumulate fat surpluses for times of emergency, usually winter.
Today humans are stockpiling and hibernating every single day. sedentary jobs or government welfare gives people little motivation to eat less. Social stigma is nearly gone, it is okay to be fat. And being fat back then was consider a sign of wealth. Due to food preservation techniques it is easy to build a surplus of calories, like candy that won't rot for many years. And cooking advent like oils being added to everything makes it a delicious past time to over eat.
This is true. Fat accumulation causes lethargy and sicknesses such as heart disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, other organs diseases. Massive blight in healthcare costs
Fat people don't know what it is like to be hungry. I don't think some land whales ever felt hungry in many years. No one even know what a calorie is
Type 1 diabetes has nothing to do with obesity. There are people with Type 2 that are not obese. Body Mass Index is a much more reliable measurement, especially with large sample sizes - like nations.
This. They dont have as many PE classes or mandatory sports club activities per week in school as other countries, their school lunches are microwave HFCS-injected shit, they dont get taught Home Ec in school. Fast Food is retardedly cheap in the US because of HFCS subsidies.
Also because of Corn Farmer subsidies literally everything in the US is injected or filled out with High Fructose Corn Syrup. Literally everything.
When you skip over important words to make a point, your point is moot. The words "if done properly" actually have significant meaning.. yet you skipped over them anyway. BMI is not a good indicator of shit other than "the ratio of height and weight". It means zero outside of that. Then again, you're probably one of those morons who really thinks everyone requires 2000cal/day.
As an American I have a theory it may be because we force athletics/always eating healthy in a lot of schools and give a negative view on exercising and healthy habits to young kids so they group up never wanting to work out or be healthy
How Big Government Backed Bad Science Made Americans Fat
Look at all thoise carbs on the USDA recommendations that's why.
hello, gramps. How's it hangin'?
Well, you'll be happy to know the abysmal food pyramid went bye-bye years ago.
On the other hand, you'll be less thrilled with the fact that med schools teach even less about nutrition, because big pharma.
Considering the UK is the 2nd most posts to the entierity of 4chan, yeah its safe to assume anyone talking shit about America is a fucking brit
I know a couple of obese people, and have definitely known one who would be considered morbidly obese (20 years later, he’s probably dead), but it doesn’t seem like such a trend, at least around here.
I fucking detest fat people. Part of why I love living in Japan. Skinny fuckers everywhere, never a fatty.
As my Dad said when visiting a few years ago, "There are as many fat people here as skinny ones in America."
My wife (Japanese) often couldn't eat in restaurants in America, being too grossed out by the fatasses inhaling and slobbering their oversized meals. On more than one occasion we had to switch seats so she could eat without having to see them.
Fat people are regular people who have made bad choices that show in their appearance. If all your bad choices showed themselves in your appearance you'd be an outcast too.
