If you don't eat as much, you will lose weight. Might take you longer, but it is just math and science. .

Also, habits is the key word here.
For example. Bigger people tend to move less than thin people, lots of studies on this. Say you take the car to everything instead of trying to walk as much as possible. If you walk you might walk lets say 2 miles extra/day, that´s not much but if you do this everyday you walk 365x2 = 730 miles extra every year. How do you think this reflects on bodyweight? You use your cars much more in US compare to Europe and people in US are much bigger.... as patrickBOOTH said "it is just math and science".


Sorry for the OT but the thread was going there :-) Regarding clothing i don´t think dressing would be a problem in OP case, he´s not that big.

No, it makes me cringe because of the broad oversimplification.

Exactly. Random anonymous guy on men's clothing forum is a much more reliable source for information on genetics.

You're probably not serious and I'm not getting it, but do you really think he's fat??

As I said at the beginning, this is a Complicated problem and is not really enderstood and it's not as simple as "math" or counting calories. Many times when a genetically fat person reduces calories his body sort of adjusts to the lower intake and many times a thin person who eats more just burns it off.  Sure, you can really restrict a fat person's calories and they'll usually lose weight but their body will always try to regain its genetic inherited type and shape.

And in the US the lower classes are a lot fatter than the upper and it's the same in Europe.That's because people have been breeding themselves into classes for thousands of years with the wealthy being better looking and slimmer and the poorer being uglier and fatter (in general) The reason why people are fatter in the US has to do with what we scientists call the founding genes because a large % of the immigrants to the US were from the bottom classes of Europe.

Americans don't like to hear the truth and watch how I will be attacked on here and how they will give every excuse in the book as to why the US is so fat except the real one-genetics. The reason that the real one is so hated is because it's something they can't change.You may get bypass surgery and become slim but your kids will still inherit those fat genes just as they would your big nose that you've had rhinoplasty on.

This is just so utterly wrong. You are omitting so many variables in your analysis it is sickening.

I think you should get off of the computer and go run laps.
