Neither Disney nor anyone else is obligated to make movies that make fat people feel better about themselves.

This lie is actually detrimental to society.


Everybody can'tbe beautiful. I don't get why people (feminists) keep pushing this idea that everyone is beautiful. Instead we should be telling people that being beautiful isn't everything. I mean, it's another lie, but it makes more sense

This lie is actually detrimental to society.

If you look at the pictures, those three body types are (or could be) beautiful.  If you keep it down to that level it doesn't harm society one bit.

The morbidly obese, however, are a drain on themselves and society and should encouraged to get down to the "fat" size in the picture.


The problem is it gets extrapolated:

TheBigJerk:  I'm just hungry, all the farking time.  Stomach-churning, stabbing-pains, thinking about food every five minutes HUNGRY every goddamned second I haven't just stuffed it full of heavy stuff.

Still, acceptance is not the solution, better chemistry is.


I got into some really bad habits around work with the office ladies bringing in baked goods/candy all the time (I suspect since they are pretty big they want everyone to be).

Now when I get a craving for something, I go for a walk.  A 2-3 mile walk.  It usually stops the craving and I have lost about 20 lbs since I started in September.

Of course it helps that I'm kinda the boss and can disappear for half an hour every now and then. try it.

What ever happened to doing something yourself? You want movies with fat princesses in them? Well, you could put in the effort, work your damned ass off, start your own animation studio (perhaps with other like minded individuals), and make it happen. Or you could sit on the side lines and demand that someone else do it for you.

RedPhoenix122: Hollie Maea: Slower burning foods over a long period of time could help.

This.  Proteins and fats burn much slower.  That is why Chinese food always leaves you hungry; lots of sugar and other simple carbohydrates.


I tried keto for awhile (almost no carbs) and it was impressive how not hungry I was.

I gave it up because it requires a LOT of planing to maintain.

Well, even less drastic things can be helpful...unprocessed carbs are at least better than highly refined ones.  And mixing whatever you are eating with some high fiber stuff always helps.

While fashion model thin is unrealistic, unhealthy and in my opinion mostly unattractive, this fat acceptance crap is just as bad. I saw an image macro somewhere or a woman who was beyond chubby and well into obese territory captioned with 'there is not a thin person inside me' or somesuch. It was combined with an xray of a similarly obese person that shockingly, had a regular old skeleton and organs which made it appear that there was indeed a summer person in there somewhere.

Yeah, I still eat way fewer carbs when possible, maintaining ketosis is challenging when you don't plan ahead ALL the time.

Can we have something in between embracing skeletal thin and obese?  Can we tell girls it's okay if you don't look like everyone on TV, but it's also important to eat healthy foods and get exercise?  Can I size 4, 6, 8 be okay?  That some people have larger frames than others and thus they will weigh more?  But it's still not healthy to weight 300 pounds?  Going one way or the other isn't helping anyone, and I feel like people don't seem to get that.  Also cartoons have proportionally wrong characters on purpose, so we don't have this weird uncanny valley.  Everyone calm down.

p the boiler: seriously - eat healthy, go to the gym - it is not hard

I used to stick up for fat people (because I was one) but since I figured out the only reason I was fat was because it was all my fault I have no empathy.

We will point at a smoker and tell them how much they are doing to their health - yet tell a fat person eating at Olive Garden that they should pass on the bread sticks and do some crunches and people get all shiatty.


Back when I used to smoke, during one break a coworker WADDLED up to me to tell me, "You know, those things are bad for you!"

She was coming back from lunch with some other coworkers, so I did not reply what I was really thinking.

I have a teenage daughter who's knocking on the door to obese... and the last thing she needs is more affirmation, more "Honey, you're beautiful just the way you are."

So no, no more farking self-esteem coddling. No farking plus-size princesses and no farking special rights for fat people. It's time to end this shiat.

Do you eat a lot of high glycemic index food?  That is a common cause of that, due to the pancreas overshooting insulin production.  Slower burning foods over a long period of time could help.


Probably?  I had a vegetarian week where I would eat and eat and feel like I hadn't eaten anything at all until I added some meat to it.

I am sure it is related to a family history rife with diabetes too.

Breads and sugars end up making a heavy appearance because of bad habits, (hate cooking) and, you know, America(fark yeah!).  But really it's meat that makes the pain stop.

And meat isn't slow-burning enough.

It would be better if the societal standard wasn't how a person *looks*, but if we judged them by what they can actually *do*.  I.e. instead of yammering on about dress sizes, the question would be: can you complete a 5k in less than an hour without collapsing at the finish?  can you do twenty situps in a row without giving yourself a hernia?

Change your chemistry yourself.  Seriously.

I know I will be vilified by this, but anyone who is obese needs to try a low-carb diet.  It sounds insane and I thought so too.  I've been on it for 2 years at the recommendation of my doctor.  What I know is that before I tried it I weighed 250 lbs, had hypoglycemia (my doctor thought I was pre-diabetic), was always hungry, couldn't sleep at night, had high cholesterol, and felt like shiat constantly.

After I adopted it, my cholesterol normalized, my blood sugar has been normal for 2 years, I'm never hungry, have tons of energy, sleep all night without a problem, my sex drive is back to what it was like when I was 18 (I'm in my 40s), and I feel generally terrific.  And I lost 70 lbs without trying.  No crazy workouts or starving myself, all I did was change what I eat.  I actually have trouble maintaining 180 lbs while eating 2500 calories a day.

Do yourself a favor and try it.

Sometimes being a parent means having to say NO. It sucks being a fat kid. It can fark with your psyche and self-esteem for decades, not to mention putting a kid on a path to an early death. I've struggled with weight my whole life. I went from 290 in high school to 170 by the time I was 21. I let it creep back up to 290 again in the last few years, and am halfway back to 170 again, hopefully for good. Fat isn't fun.
