    That is a dangerous game to play. I sure hope he can loose it back. It is a very slippery slope and it starts with belief that you can gain comfort in eating and not exercising.

    oh....my lord...I really do hope he gains back the muscle. Not for the asthetics, but for his health. This is an extremely dangerous experiment, Considering that emotions were said to be involved.

    why the hell is obesity and being over weight always assocciated with low self esteem. i mean, shit, bad food tastes good plain and simple. there are many fat people who are very distinguished in their lives and careers and have a very high self esteem (perhaps too much), my boss is an example. he is the best at wha he does in the whole state of where i practice, yet he is fat as hell.

    just because some people (most gays) associate their self worth with their body image doesn't mean that the rest of the world does. stop putting your vain, insecure shit on other people and let them live. i f they want to eat themselves to death let em. if it effects you (i.e. health care expenses) then encourage people to getfit instead of talking shit.

    BTW , i am not fat myself. i am 5'-7" 155 lbs. i just know what its like to be fat, and am sick and tired of people on this site, with their genetically 0% fat having, genetically blessed, easy muscle gaining asses talking shit about fat people.perhaps you need to do what this guy did to get an appreciation for what its like to try to loose weigh,

    peace

    . . .that reminds me of great line from a P.G. Wodehouse novel:

    "Well go to hell then," said Chuffy, agreeably.

    I love fat people. Not obese. And not disproportionate. But an equal amount of fat is great. Here's why. PILLOWS! Fat people make great pillows. Skinny people are like rocks. Why would anyone sleep with a rock?

    It's not just that. I'm attracted to football builds. So if you have 20-25% body fat, with muscle underneath, a pretty face, a nice ass, and the body fat is evenly distributed, then I'll probaboy find you EXTREMELY attractive.

    Why would you be sick and tired of people who are naturally skinny? Unless they are sending you hate messages or talking about how fat is gross all the time, then it seems that your hate towards them stems from the fact that you are insecure about your own body fat percentage fat.

    Actually a lot of peoplee, not just gays, associated self-worth with body image.

    Denying that this society places a great deal on body image AND expecting people not to have lower self-esteems when they are obese is not realistic.

    Ask any fat person--do you like being fat? Would you feel better about yourself if you were healthier? I think the large majority of Americans would say no to the former and yes to the latter.

    Losing weight and sstaying in shape is a lot of work.Some people are more advantaged than others in the areas though. It's undenible. However... using these disadvantages as an excuse is not healthy or helpful--but we must be aware of these disadvanages to help better those in need--treating everyone's obesity the same way is not possible.

    What I liked about this clip was that he said the greatest impact has been on his social life and self-esteem. A hot guy who it's as desirable understands the emotions many obese people go threough. Luckily he has years of healthy habits on his side to combat his newly developed addictions to food.

    Single-handedly?

    haha.

    So..., Ronald McDonald, Processed foods companies, fast food, having a lower household income, being in the lower class, emotional eating disorders, various medications, poor nutritional choices in school lunchrooms, poor nutiritional habits taught to children, food advertising, supermarket layouts, etc..... have had absolutely nothing to do with our present health crisis?

    Are you saying the blame rests solely on those who are obese and no one else or no other entity?icon_eek.gif

    Yes...unless someone put a gun to their head and told them to eat a big mac

    People who use that argument forget that

    The own doctors and the healthcare industry,
    The huge social stigma being a fat ass carries as evidence from this very thread
    The government, surgeon general, various government programs
    A large number of out spoken activists, I'm thinking Morgan Spurlock, Richard Simmons, Jamie Oliver, Oprah
    A multi-billion dollar Heath and fitness industry

    All out there encouraging them to lead healthy lives....So it's wrong to act like it's a one sided force screaming in your face to consume and there is not an almost equally large force telling you not to

    It comes down to personal responsibility


    There's 23,500 gyms and health clubs in the USA, there is also 13,381 McDonalds. You choose which one you go to...

    you know what's really sad...ridiculously overweight men that creepily follow all the in shape guys at the gym... That boggles my mind. I've seen guys in the gym that either haven't lost a pound or gained a ridiculous amount, but they stay in the steam room scoping guys out. Oh the irony.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidDang...he was a model and was making money. Now he's struggling to get the weight off. His body won't be the same. What was that for, for some 2 minutes of fame on a local obscure television news segment? icon_rolleyes.gif


    my thoughts exactly. I´m trying so hard to see this as a noble thing, but it´s not working.

    Listen, I don't despise them, I just think that the majority of overweight people are lost in a sea of excuses.
    I blame myself anytime I fall short of any successes. Once I accept that I failed at something, I try to fix it and move on. The majority of the obese population have the ability to overcome their problem. Its the stigma they hold over themselves that keeps them from achieving healthy lifestyles.


    you also said..

    "So..., Ronald McDonald, Processed foods companies, fast food, having a lower household income, being in the lower class, emotional eating disorders, various medications, poor nutritional choices in school lunchrooms, poor nutritional habits taught to children, food advertising, supermarket layouts, etc..... have had absolutely nothing to do with our present health crisis?"

    All of these contribute to obesity, but most of these are easily fixable by a personal standpoint.
