    DON'T get FAT

    anyone who is ON this board who IS fat, or isn't fat ... lose the weight or don't ever get fat!!

    I think today was my WORST day in clinicals by far ... 400+ pound FAT man with a broken back ...

    seriously.. like WTF????

    every single FAT person that comes through for an xray would NOT have the problems they were having if they just weren't fat.

    If you need help, read the book UN**** yourself..

    Once males get over 220 lbs and females get over 110 lbs they should be banned from ice cream, potato chips, Candy, alcohol, marijuanna, and fast food.

    Re: DON'T get FAT

    Obesity is a pet peeve of mine.

    Don't get me wrong- I'm not a "body shamer." I don't think people need to be skinny to be attractive, and I find curvy women more attractive than skinny women. But there is a point where it's not about appearance and it really is about health.

    My parents are from Philly/South Jersey. I was born there and they moved to Rochester when I was a baby. We had no family in the area and my parents knew no one when they first moved there. They very quickly made some friends in the area, mostly people who were in the same situation and/or had young kids close in age to my brothers and I. These people became what we called our "Rochester family." We weren't actually related, but unlike our relatives, they were close enough that they were always there- birthdays, holidays, baptisms, first communions, proms, graduations, just hanging out for summer cookouts- whatever it was, they were there.

    One person in this group was a woman about my dad's age who, as much as it pains me to say it, was morbidly obese. This woman was a great person- funny, outgoing personality, always the life of the party, incredibly nice. She was a writer and helped me with things like school assignments and resumes. But, she had a whole range of health problems. She was the first person I ever visited in the hospital. Over time, she gained weight and got diabetes. It affected her eyesight and she had to have her legs amputated above the knee- first one, then the other- and spent the last 15 years or so of her life in a wheelchair. And she was subject to a lot of judgment and ridicule because of her weight.

    Please understand- she was a large human being and was never going to be skinny. But she was also a wonderful person that I really cared about who suffered greatly because she couldn't control her eating. I don't want to be in that situation and I don't want to see anyone else I care about in that situation again.

    Even if you aren't morbidly obese, being overweight can cause all kinds of lesser health problems- back/knee/hip issues, heart issues, etc.

    Guys don't have to look like UFC fighters. Women don't have to look like Victoria's Secret models. But for ****'s sake, keep your weight under control or you will regret it.

    pretty much the majority of the patients I have seen are over weight. It is sad because the majority of problems can be simply fixed with weight loss

    It’s my choice to be fat. It’s not my choice to get shot up at a movie theater by some wackjob with an AR15.

    Re: DON'T get FAT

    A very simple solution to the problem is learning how to cook.

    Women and men have abandoned the kitchen for their own careers, and their children are suffering the consequences of obesity, diabetes, and other health problems directly related to the diets.

    Feeding the family with KFC is not, "making dinner."

    How many people under the age of 30 know how to make spaghetti and meatballs?

    "I'm too busy to cook."

    No, you're lazy.

    Pasta from a box and frozen meatballs is somewhat healthier than KFC but it’s not exactly healthy.

    Cooking for yourself only works if you cook the right things.

    Re: DON'T get FAT

    What a messed up thread. Obesity isn’t a choice. It’s a compulsive disorder just like alcoholism and gambling, hoarding etc.

    just don’t eat so much, learn to cook, read a book... heartless ignorance.

    You have to be 6'7" for 220 lbs to be a normal BMI. For a comparable BMI at 110 lbs, you would have to be 4'8".

    I know BMI isn't precise on an individual level because it doesn't account for activity/muscle mass, but you're talking about a circus freak swing of standards here.

    Also:

    Three prior studies have shown that marijuana users are less likely to be obese, have a lower risk for diabetes and have lower body-mass-index measurements. And these trends occurred despite the fact that they seemed to take in more calories.
    Why? “The most important finding is that current users of marijuana appeared to have better carbohydrate metabolism than nonusers,”

    Agreed. Big Pharma is after CBD big time. As far as weed, I can’t recall ever seeing an obese pothead.

    I'm (clinically) fat. You grow up in Buffalo, start hanging with people like sukie (which is not a bad thing) and you eat a lot of chicken wings, drink a lot of beer and vodka. It builds up. Plus it's cold like 8 months a year so you're indoors somewhere. It builds up. The same reason all the girls in Buffalo are fat. Thank goodness I moved away and found out there are different girls out there.

    Anyway I ran 4 miles Monday, Tuesday & today. The exercise thing only goes so far. I need my mouth sewn shut. But, yeah, don't get fat.

    I see this post as I guiltily swiped a jelly doughnut from the lunch room at work. Chickie was 5 minutes too late to help me.
