Talking Fat in the USA

One thing I find interesting is that people in the United States are so cautious when they talk about weight, but only when someone is overweight. They seem to have no issue letting someone know that they are too skinny. Interesting, right? I mean really think about it. Would you be more likely to approach someone you cared about that had gotten too thin or too fat? Why? Do we just accept the idea that people that are fat or getting fat can’t help it and will get their feelings hurt? Just how someone too thin can eat more/better, someone too heavy can eat less/better and move more. Of course it’s easier said than done, but no one is 50 pounds overweight that eats right and exercises consistently. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. There is no secret diet. It takes education, dedication and responsibility. But, the good news is that it is possible to make changes to your life and health. Yes, it’s harder for some, but that is why there are people like me that teach individuals how to eat and make time for exercise. It’s not easy. Nothing worth it ever is.
