Hell, instead of eating five Big Macs? Eat one, fattie. Eventually you'll be a smaller fattie.
look, that's part of the problem - having lost weight, its easy to hate the people who don't/cant. and I agree with you, for the most part. but I also understand how hard it is to get that start of losing weight, espectially for poor/overwhelmed people.
the main issue is when you are fat you have low energy, you come home from work having been shit on all day, you are tired, you have to feed your kids, and it is a lot esier to feed them something fat and cheap that requires no or little cooking.
its part of a holistic problem - these people very often don't have good family support, they don't have a relationship with a doctor to help advise them, they very often aren't very bright, and they are very often overwhelmed. so, yes, these are excuses, but there is correclation between all these things in the US and obesity.
