New Healthcare stuff. Fat and Smokers, Beware

45 posts in this topic

you may be predisposed to being heavy genetically but obesity... 25%+ body fat...that shiat ain't genetic.

Exactly. Lot's of fat people like to point to the fact that their whole family is fat, completely ignoring that their entire family has bad eating/exercising habits.

60 years ago fat people were a rarity. A fat gene didn't just sneak into your family's bloodline one night at the buffet 30 years ago.

Habits changed. Most people no longer burn calories at work because they sit at a desk all day. People also consume more calories today than they did in the past.

I don't have a whole lot of pity for smokers and fat people...

New "healthcare stuff" has caused a ton of layoffs to occur in January. Thank reductions in reimbursement for that. Quest Diagnostics did theirs in October...and bigger hammers are dropping. Smaller areas will be hit soon.

Smoking is ALWAYS a choice. To say it is not shows complete ignorance.

Thanks old wise one. Ignoranced can be fixed.

Prick! Being a prick can't.

The obese I know are pretty well known to order enough for my family of four alone, and have very good jobs where there's no way in hell they'll ever burn all those calories. I'd bet that the vast majority of their daily caloric burns come from bathing and toilet visits.
