“We live in a society that judges people for being fat, yet has in place every possible means for making them so. Who wants to eat less – of anything – when food is so good and plentiful? It’s hard to say no to something that is right in our faces, promising a bit of easy pleasure. It is especially hard to say no when the consequences of overeating come about in such a distant, gradual and mysterious way. I find it difficult to believe that an extra scoop of ice-cream will end up as fat somewhere on my body, even though I know how it happens at the enteric, metabolic and cellular levels. Perhaps this is what happens when we reach the head of the queue and order too much: a fantasy where eating has no consequence, where that pile of French fries and the burger with extra cheese are not our future bodies.”

This paragraph was borrowed from an excellent article “Fat City – What Can Stop Obesity?”, written by Dr Karen Hitchcock and published in The Monthly.  You can read the rest of her article here.

I can do no better than quote one of the commentors (who names herself or himself as Ex-Fat) :

“As someone who was previously 166 kilograms and after 3 years of grueling hard work to finally reach my goal weight of 85, I’d like to offer my compliments to the author of this article in that it is probably the best piece I have ever read on obesity. Basically every point made is perfect. I have nothing further to add and I wish I could show this article to every one of my still overweight friends and family as well as those who are of a normal weight as it not only offers a deep and empathetic insight into what it is like to be morbidly obese, but also offers a real understanding of the causes behind it.”
