How does it cost less? What about people diagnosed with cancer that need medical, or fat people who have heart attacks and need an e.m.t. and need open heart surgery?

I think the issue is that you're conflating 'overweight' with 'obese'. I'm talking about obesity, and a few exceptions aside, obese people are less healthy that non-obese people.

I'm just trying to say that there's nothing wrong with being fat and healthy, or having a body-shape that doesn't match up with Kate Moss.

If you're fat, you're by definition unhealthy...

obviously in a perfect world no person would feel social pressure to look a certain way. and obviously we as a society should work towards removing those pressures, because they're psychologically and physically damaging.
BUT, with all that said, I have a feeling that the consequences of social weight expectations (created by ad campaigns such as the tom ford one above) are far less "bad" than those of obesity. and I have a dark suspicion that the unintended side effect of such social pressures might be a reduction in obesity.
on some level I'm an amoral pragmatist, and if the only way to get people to lose weight is to shame them into it, well, then so be it

I also think fat acceptance is not a move in the right direction. There's a reason that we're inclined to prefer thinner (normal-size) people - it's simply healthier. I find it hypocritical that no one suggests the inverse - there is no underweight acceptance; in fact, anorexic people are often vilified by this group even though they also suffer from a skewed mentality regarding food.

That said, I think shaming people would be like pushing them into a corner. It leads to a resistant mentality...and when who seek comfort in food are ashamed they typically exacerbate their issues. Better to positively encourage people to lose weight.

obese people are inherently unhealthy. all the medical statistics show it. while they might not currently be suffering the consequences of the weight, statistically they will have shortened lives.

edit: also anorexia is probably even more damaging to your health prospects than being obese.

This is actually a popular misconception. Which see: http://junkfoodscience.blogspot.fr/2006/11/obesity-paradox-1.html
