The only thing positive about the ‘body positivity’ movement is that the activists will have lower life expectancy.
Worldwide (no pun intended), obesity has reached epidemic proportions (no pun intended). People are getting fatter, sicker and dying earlier than earlier.
Globalists (no pun intended) have started a fight between
- obese activists (females mostly and those on the left) who are accusing others of ‘fat shaming’ them, and
- non-obese people (and those on the right) who are accusing obesity activists of spreading non-scientific ideas such as ‘fat acceptance’ and ‘body positivity’.
Both sides (no pun intended) should be roundly (no pun intended) criticized (no pun intended) for ignoring basic tenets of science and human decency.
Obese people need big clothes so fat models should be acceptable
‘Plus-size’ models are needed to advertise plus-size clothes. People on the right are getting offended at the very sight of these models. These people were the ones complaining about the intolerance of the ‘liberal’ Left. Their own intolerance is invisible to them. If you attack a plus-size model, her agent will tell her that any publicity is good publicity. If the ‘body positivity’ movement gets your goat and you rave about it, then that is only more publicity. Now, fast-food companies, drug companies and chemical companies can non-chalantly ask people to make unhealthy lifestyle choices.
Obese people are also humans. They have feelings as anybody else. They can have a life like you can. If they have fans and followers so be it. What do you care? Let them have their space with their clothes, models and fashion shows. How intolerant of you to object!
If they want to bring fat/obese models into Victoria Secret, then that is something serious to be worried about. Your objections are then valid. Otherwise, don’t break into a sweat on seeing a fat mannequin. This kind of triggering is appropriate for the loony left.
Being obese is not the same as being fat
Being excessively or unhealthily fat is known as obesity. Many people advising obese people to exercise are themselves fat. Because they are not at obesity-level fatness, they think it is fine to be condescending and disparaging towards obese people. I do not see any reason why someone would spend an hour of their life ragging on a woman like Amy Schumer.
She is fat but not obese. If someone questions why she was paid millions for her comedy-less comedy acts, then that is a valid question. If her book was as bad as her comedy acts, then someone can question why a publisher paid millions for it. (The trade talk is that they will never recoup that money.) But, how can you question her for being fat?
Obese people cannot stop eating
Obesity is one of many problems caused by mass poisoning of people. Much of what people in the West eat today are processed foods. Even when the cook food at home, it is not pre-processed foods. Eating fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables are also not a great option because they are also sprayed with chemicals. Most food crops are GMOs. Poisonous metals such as mercury and aluminium are being used as preservatives in vaccines. Dairy cows are non-vegetarian cows. They are fed everything from ground-up wastes from meat industries and poultry litter. Cows, pigs, and chicken are also given levels of growth hormones and antibiotics. The water is doped with fluorine (only in the US, ostensibly to prevent tooth decay) and chlorine (disinfection). Many GMO foods contain bacterial genes that make every cell in the food item to produce a small quantity of bacterial poison. The poison is enough to kill the worms affecting the plant but not immediately kill the humans. Many cosmetics have been found to have lead, hormone disruptors and carcinogens. Eventually, all these chemicals affect humans. Some become obese. Some become autistic. Some become dyslexic. It varies. Some effects may even show up after a few generations.
Obese people become fat because they overeat. But, why do they overeat? The answers:
- hormone disruption
- processed foods have ingredients designed to increase craving
- foods have become less satisfying thanks to limits on salt and sugar levels
- gastric irritation caused by acidity disguises itself as hunger
People with gland issues (hormone disruption) will become fat even if they eat less. They will also die early.
Asking obese people to stop overeating is cruel. They cannot help it.
Exercise is not necessary to be thin
If a person eats normally, his body size will also be normal. Exercise is not necessary.
If a person is gaining excess weight, exercise can bring it down. However, this exercise will have to become part of daily routine to maintain a normal weight.
A person can also maintain a normal weight without any exercise simply by adopting a less-fattening diet.
Obese people cannot exercise
As mentioned earlier, when a person realises that he is gaining unnecessary weight, he can either do exercises or switch to a less-fattening diet.
Obese people cannot exercise because they do not have the stamina. Even if they do any exercise, they have already crossed a threshold, whereby the catabolic rate for fat is far ahead of its metabolic rate. Asking obese people to exercise is scientifically pointless.
Cure for Obesity
Only way to escape from obesity is a change to a vegetarian or vegan diet and a gradual increase in exercise.
Unlike vegetarianism, veganism is not of much value to ordinary people. For obese people though, the results can be magical. Obese people need to first eliminate fats, animal products and mass-produced processed foods from their food list. Only then will it be a vegan diet. They should then switch to a less starchy diet. They should also avoid hormone-busting foods such as GMO soy and nutrition-less foods like GMO corn. Almost all vegans eat soy thinking that it is a health food. They are idiots.
Food cravings should be compensated with water and fruits. Water increases the metabolic rate and reduces gastric acidity. However, excessive water drinking will not be good. Continuous chewing like a cow is also not recommended. They should maintain a regular 3-meals and 8-hour early-to-bed and early-to-rise sleep routine. They should ignore negative thoughts, unkind remarks and other distractions.
They should gradually increase their exercise routine. If they improve, they can switch to a job that requires light physical exertion throughout the day.
Everything should be done in a gradual manner to avoid heart attacks and withdrawal shocks.
Things will be normal again. It will take some time.
