        I can already guess the excuses:
        Those weren't really fat people, they were thin people that had put on fat due to special circumstances.
        It was easy for them to lose it again, because genetically they were always thin people to begin with. She however is really a fat person, meaning genetically she is doomed.
        Her situation is unique and all of the people who did it were fundamentally different to her, which is why they could do it and she can't.

        I hate these people so much.

      exactly, it's THAT simple. they claim being overweight is cause by genetics, but how did we get to 40% obese adults in the last few decades? did our genetics change? no, our eating habits did

        Preventable? Yes. A person is by science not born fat, no evidence exists of that. Perhaps some hormonal imbalances but no bigger issues.
        Eating too much food makes you fat, eating less than you need makes you thin. Eating what you need will make you keep a healthy weight.

        It is somewhat genetic. In a sense that testosterone levels have dropped significantly, so does metabolism and so it also influences newer generations. Woman having predispositions to becoming fat easier is based on hormones.

          obesity have risen when you isolate either genders as well
          > testosterone levels have dropped significantly
          true, but again it's not that our actual genes have changed as to make us have less testosterone, but that our environment is full of micro plastics, cheap oils and whatever other garbage they put every where

            You are right, but in order to explain this problem, you need to start small. All of fat people are consoomers, they don't care about any plastic or cheap oil being used in their takeaway food.
            We have reached a point at which obesity in the United States is seen as acceptable. Testosterone drops, estrogen stays the same or even rises based on hormones, and as you say, there are some direct causes for that.
            However, at some point in time, perhaps it already happened, the current drastically unhealthy levels of hormones will be stored in our DNA, or rather genetics.

            Yes, of course a baby is born fat, I understand that. Yet, there is no reason for them to stay fat later on in life.
            When they stay fat, their baby fat was effectively useless because now they are just destroying their body with useless mass.

              Yes they have no reason to stay fat throughout their whole life, but the fat is bot useless. The fat is used to keep warm and as a energy source in case food is short so the baby can develop and actually survive. In our world this isn't as big a problem so kids should be building muscle instead of fat as soon as possible

              Not arguing your main point but everyone is born fat. Newborns are fat little goblins, and historically the fatter the newborn the healthier they become later in life.

              Literally all newborns have done for the last 9 months of their life is "eat" and grow. The fat is then used to grow further and develop the baby's body.

      Yeah but the answer isn't a simple calorie deficit. You either run a 200-400 calorie deficit and lose the weight over years of time or you do fasting one week every month or two and lose the weight over a slightly shorter amount of time. If you go a higher calorie deficit you will make yourself sick and can lead to health problems later and you will usually regain the weight. Preventing fatness is a lot easier than curing it. You could prevent it by not eating processed foods and cooking yourself.

      There should be a battle royale held once a year where people over 35% bf are tossed into a large open air arena located in Death Valley and are awarded freedom only if they go down to less than 18% bf or are the last person alive. If they get fat again afterward release, they end up back in the arena next year.

      I know it's fun to think about authoritarian measures and what you would do if you were dictator, but truth is, those wouldn't ever pass.
      However sufficient pressure is almost the same as force, yet much easier to attain politically. See picrel. Simply tax unhealthy foods higher, give incentives and discounts to healthier, thinner people. To make it politically viable make exceptions for people who genuinely can't help it (disabled, etc). Keep that pressure up and I would bet a surprising amount of these people would slowly change. Truth is there are few rights people would actually stand up as long as compliance with the system is more comfortable for them.

      A similar probably currently increases vegetarianism, I already see more people at stores trying tofu and other vegetarian/vegan alternatives as meat prices rise.
      As long as you have political will, it's not that hard to guide a populance in whatever direction you so desire.

    I’m so glad that i was only very overweight for like 4 months after high school before I started losing it. I think if you’re fat for long enough then you just accept it and come up with ridiculous justifications for it. I reached a BMI of 29 from so quickly that I didn’t have time to make excuses before I noticed it and started losing it all by not eating 1500 calories of chocolate every day

    This is a behavioural problem and 'science' has given up and wants to give them all pills to change their behaviour, because they're too difficult to manage.

    I'm not making this shit up. They've decided dieting and exercise interventions aren't effective because they regain all the weight. They've even captured it in a nice biological mechanism and implicate hormones that stop them from being able to stop eating.

    Some strong sophistry in this argument. She's saying that if anyone at any time is fat, fatness is normal, natural, and ubiquitous. So even if we went from 70% overweight to 0.0001% overweight, we can't learn anything about what caused the weight drop as long as a fat person exists somewhere. This argument will be received VERY well by the 105-120 IQ crowd
