People Who Complain About Being Fat...

Yet keep eating like they're dying of hunger. Drive me off the fucking wall man.

I hate when people bitch constantly about being fat. Yet they continue eating McDonalds everyday and spending 13 bucks a day for just one meal.

And these are people who can lose weight.. if they tried. They have nothing stopping them from doing it. They spend like 25-30 bucks a day on greasy food. And that's almost 200 a week or so eek and they say they can't pay for a gym membership.

I see sooooo many people who say this. It drives me nuts! it's like they want a sympathy fuck ''oh you poor thing. Society doesn't accept you! i will love you'' yeah this sounds mean. But i'm sick of people complaining about their weight. Then eat NOTHING but the junkiest food possible.

''But guns it's cheaper'' i know mofos who spend 150 a week on greasy food. Cheaper? huh? lol or maybe these people just use all their money for food idk. I hate seeing people live this unhealthy lifestyle. Then constantly complain about being fat and how no one accepts them rolleyes

Here's what Michael Phelps thought. After binge-eating a bunch of fast food, he had a few drinks, then got a DUI. Now look where it's gotten him! Good thing he's cute, huh?









(No idea how you feel about Phelps, but thought I'd try and lighten the mood by posting a pic of someone who eats a lot and never seems to gain a pound. There are those types out there too, and I think we should be just as mad at those skinny bitches!) lol

Honestly, I feel like many fat people are binge/emotional/over eaters. The people that aren't fat for medical reasons anyway. When people think of eating disorders they usually just think of anorexia or bulimia but I believe overeating and binging is way more prevelent than people think especially in America with all the addicting salty and sugary foods. And of course fat people don't get much sympathy because people just see fat people as greedy overindulgers while some people in the world starve and all they have to do is put the fork down when really it's probably more than that. So yeah if someone is complaining about being fat while still eating fattening foods they probably got some other underlying issues.

I would say that there are more things going on that just eatting too much.

and that's why there are fat people in this world...especially in the US...

I know there are fat people due to an inherently wide bone structure or some kind of illness (like diabetes), but those are the minority...

addicting and sugary

This.

Sugar fucks up your gut flora and messes up all your appetite hormones whilst wreaking havoc on your organs and lighting up the pleasure centers in your brain.

Organizations like the Heart Foundation (in Australia) mislead people by demonising FAT and SALT and letting them think there is nothing wrong with sugar. They sell their ticks to products with up to 60% sugar shake

It's an absolute crime.
I'm the mistake you wanna make

There is one thing that people seem to overlook when they demonize America's diet: portion control.

I can't tell you how many of my Canadian friends come back from a holiday in the USA to tell us how huge the portions are at every meal, and at low cost.

And keep in mind Canada's "western diet" and junk food available is not that different from the states.

Agreed. The US is still the home of the fat but the UK especially is catching up. Other parts of Europe as well.

This is a multi-facted issue though, with more than one root cause. And no easy fixes. It's much bigger than "just eat better and exercise more" or we wouldn't have a problem anymore. Everyone knows that. No one is ignorant of that.

Portion control is a must! i see many people that eat like 3,000 calories in one sitting eek it's kind of insane. All i can think of is how that's gonna feel later lol

Its all about balance. Macronutrients vs micronutrients. Insoluble fiber vs Soluble fiber. The amount of calories put on and the amount of calories burned off. When you eat and how much eat also play an important role.

1. people need to get away from processed foods and start cooking from fresh ingredients.

2.get the right type of fat in your diet from macadamian nuts or fatty fish like salmon, trout, or mackerel.

3.eat more greens like collard greens, kale, the various chards, and mustard greens

4. reduce the amount of starchy foods in your diet like rice, potatoes, pasta, and bread. Those are one of the biggest causes of weight gain so regulate the amount.

5. Get your sugar intake down to a minimum. Sugar is probably the biggest cause of weight gain and health problems. Stop replacing healthy foods with sodas, sweets, and snacks. Try fresh berries or a piece of 80% dark chocolate.

6. Drink water and get 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep

7. Exercise. Get at least 30 min of medium activity a day. Try resistence training at least 3 to 4 days a week. When you have a natural, balanced diet, your body can't wait to burn off the fat fuel cells.

I consider these things an extravagence to eat because it is actually very processed and all carbohydrates once broken down. But I would still like to get my carbs from here than a side of soda, yknow?

I noticed the Weight Watchers bread is sliced very thin. This is another example of portion control/awareness.

I think baked goods like bread in general are very new to human evolution and used to be a treat.

Definitely, better than soda. These carbs aren't bad for you. Its just too much can lead to weight gain.

I drink a green smoothie everday.

2 cups of greens like kale or chard

2 cups of berries like blueberries, strawberries, goju berries, blackberries, or raspberries

1/2 banana

1 cup of unsweetened almond milk or water

1 tbsp of almond butter or chia seeds

Put in a blender and drink. You wont even taste the greens. You already have 4 cups of your recommended 5 cups of fruits and vegetables.

I NEVER understood fat people until I got fat...

there are two kinds of fat people.

First kind- care abut what others think, look for validation in other people, are secretly needy for friends, like to complain about most things in their life... if it isn't their fat ass, its their shitty hair, lack-luster lovelife, crappy boyfriend, shitty job...etc.

Second kind- does't give a fuck about being skinny and thinks being thin is overrated. They don't complain but, other people complain about them. These happy fat fucks don't bother anyone, and they just like to eat, no thyroid issues, no medical stuff, no mental health issues... just a love to eat good food and do nothing to burn off the extra calories.


People who have issues with other people being fat, usually are the same people who take issues with others being happier than them. Competitive assholes always sizing others up, in a never-ending self-imposed pissing match with all those around them because they can nt be happy with what they actually have. People who are unhappy and want that for others too. These unhappy people have much to say abut other people's lives, gossiping to no end. So the second kind of fat person usually will steer clear of those who want to project their issues on these happy fat people in order to get a sense of control because they themselves lack control in their own life and basically need to mind their own bodies and business. No, they don't need your diet advice, they don't need to be told to see a doctor nor do they need to be looked at as if they are poor or disgusting. Yes, that's right... a person can be fat AND happy with a healthy sex life and be long lived.




The worst part of human nature is the judgemental nature we all tend to posess. People are always trying to tell others what they should be concerned with or are trying to project their issues on others.


Please know this- A bitch will be a bitch whether she's fat or skinny, and a complainer will be a complainer whether they are fat or skinny too.




BTW: When *I* say I am fat, it is because I am. AT 238lbs I am considered obese and it is just a fact. This however is by no means a complaint about my body nor should it be deemed as such. I am just describing myself. I think others should take this into consideration when a person decribes themselves as fat.

I used to put a ton of sugar in coffee or tea (But not each much candy) but I have a kidney issue so I cut way back. I now use Splenda.... when I have sugar i get a big buzz... I can drink 36 oz of coffee and I am normal (well as normal as I am) but add a little sugar and I am off the chain!

Seriously, it's sooooo expensive to eat 'whole' foods. I'm so glad that I work where I work on 2 days out of the week. There are plenty of fruit trees in the forest - FREE guava, FREE avocado, and FREE tangerine (from the school's backyard). First thing in the morning, before I leave the house, I've been eating these fruits at least a half hour to an hour before I eat anything else. Since fruits can't fill me up and keep me until lunch, I normally eat a burrito or sausage mcmuffin from mcdonalds when I get close to my job to hold me over. What a contradiction, eat healthy and then eat mcdonalds lol .

But anyways, it's been at least a couple of months that I've been eating this way. And when I got on the scale yesterday, I saw that I lost 7 lbs (lost it in the last 2 weeks or so)! Yay, this change in diet must have something to do with that. But don't know if I would have been able to do this if I had to buy these fruits each week, they're so expensive. sigh

Actually, one can live like that and still be fat. I'm a prime example. I'm a vegetarian, I cook the majority of my own meals, I avoid most processed foods, I sleep well, I exercise (I biked the MS150 in June), I drink more water than anything... The weight does not "just fall off" when you adopt healthy habits. I'm smaller than I was several years ago, but I plateaued at one point and have stuck there since.

Never had diabetes, an issue w/cholesterol, my blood pressure is on the low side even.

I am healthy because I adopt healthy habits 80-90% of the time. But I am fat nonetheless.

I'm guessing lrn36 is a man. If that is the case, he should try being a woman over 35 sometime, with his hormone levels going into the shitter. It's not as simple as "eat right, exercise, get enough sleep." I did all that for years and my weight still crept up. When I started hormone replacement therapy, I dropped 15 pounds (and got my waist back) practically overnight.

Instead of "people who complain about being fat," the thread title should be "men in their 20s who complain about being fat" - because they're really the only ones for whom the diet/exercise/sleep paradigm works without a hitch. lol

So was I. nod
The first four days of that sugar detox were a nightmare!
I had body aches, a blinding headache and nausea. shake


I've been on a low-sugar diet since Ash Wednesday...
I've lost almost 40 lbs, and I feel great!
(yes, I know- there is sugar in everything. rolleyes I hate when people try to debunk what's working for you)

I've had sugary desserts 6 times since Easter- half a stale brownie that I was pissed about wasting calories, half a piece of chocolate raspberry cake, 2 slices of key lime pie at different times, and chocolate cake at two different times. I got a sugar rush each time. dead

I do respect that some people have diseases. Or other things keeping them from losing weight.

I ALSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..... Don't think everyone has to look like a model. I just think working out is good in general. You can still be a little chubby and be healthy.

I just get irritated when people who COULD change their health around. Just complain and don't motivate themselves to do it.

These are people born with healthy bodies. That let it go to complete waste. And they also have more than enough money for a gym... they just choose to spend $3-500 a month on junk food.

Yes, women's bodies are designed to store fat more efficiently for the purpose of childbearing. In fact, some studies show when exercsing women burn fat better than men, but gain it all back in resting periods. Some women are more lean and others struggle to lose fat. From what I've read, not only do women store fat differently from men, but also from different women based on genetics and regional background. You're right not all bodies repsond the same way.

It's so true. I'm American but even I'm shocked when I go get fast food every so often and the small sized beverages are about what a large would have been in the 90s. It's crazy. Small gets bigger and bigger. People should be concerned about this but I think most people would be angry if they change sizes back to what they were before.
