Comment: Laziness and lack of pride

(See in situ)


Laziness and lack of pride

... are exactly what obesity is NOT. Frankly, such statements are insensitive and uninformed. What do you say to the overweight individual who eats hardly anything, and exercises hours each day and doesn't lose weight? Plenty of those people exist and your blanket "laziness and lack of pride" diagnosis is a slap in their face. No wonder depression and suicide are common among the overweight and obese.

All three - obesity, laziness and lack of pride - are just SYMPTOMS of a deeper problem: hormone dysfunction caused by malnutrition, mainly overconsumption of carbohydrate.

I'm not at all sure what you were trying to say in your first paragraph though.
