Fatties, health thread

Ha knew that would make you read this but seriously though are you going to take the government's warnings (well it is just common sence) and get fit, loose weight and live longer?

Re: Fatties, health thread

What I don't understand is why it has all just started now?

I do agree things have become very lazy e.g. you can do all of your shopping on line or by phone and that the only time you have to move is to collect your goods when they are delivered, but thats not everyone.

They are saying that soon everyone will be fat. So what? If they are happy, leave them alone! Fatist/Weightist Bast*rds

Why not bring in schemes within schools... I saw an advert where kids were learning about vegetables, how to make them and what they tasted like so that in the long run, they themselves will learn about healthy living.

Its not going to happen overnight, Rome wasn't build in a day... Teach people how to become fit, lower the price of healthier foods and maybe, just maybe something might happen.

Its been going on for years, better balanced diets were introduced to schools ages ago but parents still gave their kids money to buy chips outside of school. It doesnít matter how much good food the school feeds the kids if they go home to plates full of high cholesterol food, cupboards full of biscuits and freezers with huge tubs of ice cream, not a veg or a piece of fruit in site. Kids emulate their parents.
Itís not so much the obese adults that bother me itís the poor kids. I seriously would love to bring in a law to prosecute parents of obese children. Kids just follow the (waddling) obese parents cause they donít know any better, but if they have the intelligence to fe** and reproduce then they should be held responsible, well I thought responsibility was the meaning of parenthood?
Surely these obese adults canít seriously want their children growing up with diabetes, hardened arteries, really bad joint problems, shorter life span, bad backs, and bad hearts, socially limited because they canít interact in a normal healthy way with their piers. No young healthy teenager boy wants to be seen with an obese girl and its also visa versa, I have yet to see the prom queen being escorted by an obese out of breath male, I know a lot of you are screaming at that last remark but if you can disprove it then go ahead.
Maybe itís a case that they feel so embittered to society that the only people they can take control over is their kids, so they take it out on their kids the fact that they have absolutely no will power or any respect for their own bodies?
I have yet to meet a healthy parent yet who if you asked them to stick poison in their childís body would do it. Unless of course if you got lucky and asked a fanatical Jew up a mountain.

So to get back to your point yes the scheme has been in operation for years but the total responsibility lies with the parents not with the government and with our tax money. Everybody with an iq above 75 (and thatís low) knows that being obese is bad for you, so parents shouldnít be allowed to make their kids obese and put them on a road that will cause so much physical and mental pain to their kids for the rest of their shorter lives. If we stop kids being obese we stop adults being obese as well it goes with out saying.
A huge excuse that fat/obese people use is that they have a slower metabolism that is absolutely crap in fact the opposite is true.
You did mention the price of food as well, another thing that really annoys me is not well off parents or single mums going into supermarkets and buying those expensive jars of baby food, wtf is that all about, all they have to do is make an extra portion of dinner for themselves, liquidise it and freeze for the baby.

One last thing I have to say is that there are a small percentage of people with hormone and genetic disposition towards obesity, Iím not referring to any of you here.

Re: Fatties, health thread

You can be fat and healthy at the same time correct? Different body types genetics etc? You can certainly be lean and unhealthy.

No you cant be fat and healthy at the same time, you may in a minutely way seem healthy but in general your killing yourself. Being lean is natural it goes back 10000 of years, so yes you can be healthy and slim

Re: Fatties, health thread

Now that is an interesting argument, I guess it depends on how you define "fat" which can be a lot different from "large".

Re: Fatties, health thread

bmi over 25 is a good starter, if that dosnt work because of muscle build then you can easily try this unscientific approach.
Can you* play ball for an hour, can you just have twenty mins of rugby? Can you play squash for 5 mins intensively, can you chase me for at least 200 metres for fun?
These are easy trials, any kid 20 years ago could have done any of those requests

I guess the other thing to consider is the lighter you are the better your motorcycle will perform!
