This seems to be among the main discussions that people get riled up about but, do you realize how this society has become all bent and out of shape about weight issues? I mean is it really that big of a deal and why do people obsess about it? It's always "this person is too fat" or "this person is too skinny" especially in the media. Why can't people just accept others for who they are. I see alot of taunting at my school of people who are a little more than chubby or who need a little more than just a chicken wing a day. But is teasing and criticizing them going to make them gain or lose anymore weight? These are the same people who go out and commit suicide or worse mass murders. I think it's worse to be stupid and rude than to have a weight problem. Most people say that Keira Knightley is anorexic and even went as far as to say she's the cause most teenage girls are anorexic too, IMO I don't think she is and I'm glad she's sued them too. She's a beautiful woman and there's nothing wrong with being slim. It's not like she's starving herself. She was built that way and it's not her fault. And just because Tyra Banks has added on a little more weight makes her fat?? What is wrong with this world? It's like they are never satisfied. I don't care what people say she still looks great. Society's view of beauty has officially been distorted. Then again I never did care about what they think. I'm the type of person who could eat food by the bucket full for days and not gain much. Is it my fault I have a fast metabolism? No. To be truthful I eat more in a day than the average person, I could clean out my fridge in a day... well let's not go that far. But I'm not afraid to eat. Though puberty has hit me like a ton of bricks I'm perfectly happy with my size. I workout everyday any way so does it matter? There's a difference between thick... and fat. But I wouldn't isolate myself from someone who has more to love. That's worse than racism IMO. Nobody is perfect so people need to just chill. oh yeah this was a rant sorry, just letting off some steam after I found out my friend was cutting herself because of how people taunt her about being... thick. but she's a beautiful girl and they're just jealous they have no curves like she does. told her this too. guys don't know what's attractive anymore... well some, in her case most
Body weight (Fat vs Skinny)

This is a massive issue which takes up masses of space in the papers. Everyone will have a view on this topic and it is forced in your faces wherever you look. Ive gotten to a stage where i personally just glaze over when this stuff is on TV or in the papers, i really cant be bothered to read it coz ive heard it all before, but i do have views and opinions so here they are.Firstly men do like different women of shapes and sizes. I have a friend who does like larger women, he himself i dont consider fat he has a large frame.I on the other hand hit the scales at 10 stone, i have weight issues at the other end of the scale im trying to gain weight. For someone like me its as tough as a larger person dieting it takes commitment. I like smaller girls.BUTI do have issues with fat people.Anyone who is overweight verging on obese or over i have an issue with because although they make the excuse 'its genetic', it really isnt as much as they make out.To gain fat you need to be eating lots of the wrong food, there are two type of mass, lean mass and fat. Thats why bodybuilders watch the type of food they eat.Secondly fat people are lazy. Excersise SPEEDS up your metabolism plus from the excersise you do do youll burn off aditional calories. 'Diets' are pointless if you excersise regularly and eat properly a healthy weight is in anyones reach.Please dont think my comments are creul and insensitive they arent meant to be, being overweight is unhealthy as much as being underweight is. Personally i would find it difficult to support someone overweight whos inaction is damaging their health. Besides everyone gets shit at school, shes only got a few more years left but if you want to help her, help her help herself.
I don't think most people are overweight because they think it's great to be overweight. Given the way most Americans, and in increasing number of Europeans, are raised, people have no idea what "healthy diet" means. As it is, given what people know about eating, and what food is available, eating less can be like giving up a cocaine habit.Quote:To gain fat you need to be eating lots of the wrong food, there are two type of mass, lean mass and fat. Thats why bodybuilders watch the type of food they eat.No, that is not correct. To gain fat, all you need to eat is more calories than you burn. No matter what you eat, if you eat too much of it, you will gain fat. There is nothing magic you can eat to gain lean (muscle) mass. That requires exercise.Also, I'm not sure that being "underweight" or moderately overweight is unhealthy. It's more a aesthetic issue than a medical one.

Steve u can be a picky anus at times cant u If i was to give u credit at ur nit picking yes you do get fat by taking more calories than you require but there is more to it than that depending on what the calories come from.Its like your saying that if i have 5000 calories worth of chocolate cake i can goto the gym and get as big and strong compaired to chicken and pasta, etc... mmm.I also dont think most people want to be fat and think its great as ur fuckin up your body, ay If ur overweight ur not necessarily fat it depends on ur body composition, muscly people may be overweight but they arent fat. Fat = Bad. Its fact.
