It is entirely possible to be healthy AND well rounded.

Since I had my dicky ticker fixed (and that was a genetic problem, nothing to do with body size - I lost 3 stones [42lbs] and was still fainting every time I stood up), I've been relatively healthy... I'm just lazy so I don't run for buses or use the stairs - but neither do I sit and guzzle cakes, buns and fizzy drinks every day. My diet is low in fat, high in fibre, veggies, water and vitamins. I limit my chocolate and alcohol intake, I try to walk whenever sensible and I have various excercise tools which I use (and not just as a clothes horse)... I'm the same weight now as I was before I had Limpit, but no one could ever accuse me of ever being thin!

Larger than magazine pictures does not automatically equal unhealthy.

Last three generations of my parents families ( before mine, from circa 1900 - 2000) Included 11 thin men, 3 fat men, 10 fat women, 4 thin women. Men died ages 43 to 67 (heart disease, diabetes, cancer). Women died ages 51 to 96 (cancer, stroke, old age). All the men are deceased. Three women, two fat, one thin, are still living (in their own homes), ages 80 to 86.

Anecdote does not equal data.

But I don't believe 20 to 30 extra pounds is as much of a risk as we are told. Reefer Madness with a plate of pasta, my honeys.

Grab, I don't know what you base your assumption on that it is mostly women who run the magazines. It is mostly men who control the content of the magazines. Women's Wear Daily, the bible of fashion industry, publishes the job changes "Executive Moves". The most powerful positions are mostly held by men.

Alice, it's certainly mostly men who own the companies, but it's women who run the women's magazines. I don't have any evidence for the assumption, but I doubt the owners have much say in what goes in them, so long as they make a profit.

You're right about men starting to buy into the plastic surgery thing, as well. More false assumptions - women believe men want stick-thin waifs, and men believe women want bodybuilders. All rubbish, but you'd never know from the magazines.

Grab, it is by far mostly men who own the fashion magazine publishing houses, but you are right that it is women who buy the magazines. So, who is influencing whom? According to advertising research that I posted somewhere in a message (don't have time to find it now) the idealized super thin youthful face and body is promoted to drive sales of not only fashion, but of anti aging products, cosmetics, diet products, plastic surgery, etc. Many women and men both buy into that super thin ideal - enough to make it a hugely influential industry. Print it and they will buy....

Emma, I strongly disagree that fat is a "feminist" issue.

Certainly the fashion industry is guilty of showing unattainable (and often unhealthy) "standards" of female beauty. But who edits and publishes these magazines? Who writes articles for them? Who buys them? Almost invariably, it's women, right down the line. "Women beware women" was never more apt.

And this gives the lie to it being a "feminist" issue. If it was a feminist issue, the problem would by definition be that men were discriminating against women who weren't stick-thin, or that men were advocating this body image. The fact that men aren't doing this and it's *women* doing the advocating means that it's impossible for it to be a feminist issue, for the same reason that it's impossible to be racist to someone of the same racial group as you. Sure, it's specific to women, but it doesn't make it feminist.

Re that Times article, it commits a basic error in logic - it assumes that "overeating" and "underexercising" are fixed values. That's obviously complete rubbish. Lumberjacks, soldiers, professional athletes and other groups who do hard physical exercise every day *require* something like 5000 calories per day to do this work. "Overeating" for them would be 6000 calories; "undereating" would be 4000 calories. Compare and contrast to a couch potato who never leaves their air-conditioned/heated house, for whom 1000 calories per day may be overeating.

When you add in the various other factors, all they do is modify where your baseline for "overeating" and "underexercising" kicks in. In other words, if you're in a heated house and you're eating the same calories as someone in an unheated house, you might need to run 2 miles extra per week than them, perhaps. If you don't then you're overeating (or underexercising), even though you're eating the same as them.

To misunderstand that is like saying "You drove due east from your house in central Ohio perfectly safely. I drove due east from central Manhattan, bounced off a zillion buildings and then fell in the river. What am I doing wrong...?" Sadly, there's a lot of apologists for fatness who make exactly this mistake. The fact that the Times would phrase their article this way is disappointing.

Graham.

CH I'm as concerned about morbid obesity as the next person.

What does infuriate me however is the continual presentation of body images (particularly to women) that are "biologically inappropiate" and result in a frighteningly high percentage being disgusted by their (perfectly "normal") body shape and an increasing range of eating "disorders"

There is some evidence to show that the diet "industry" (which makes money on the back of so much misery and engendered self-disgust) is also responsible, to some extent for actual increases in weight as repeated (yo-yo) dieting drives the "natural weight range" higher for some people!

Unlike some of the posters here, I would never accuse you of sexism CH (You can be equally rude to anybody! :) ) but nevertheless, from the very title of this thread, it would appear that fat is still a "feminist issue"

a further quote -

"The rejection of the war on fat is based on a simple principle: that tolerance towards an almost wholly benign form of human diversity is the least we should expect of ourselves, if we wish to lay claim to living in a civilised culture."

Tolerance and any evidence of a "civilized culture" seems to be as lacking on this issue as it is on many others here! Give me someone who is overweight and tolerant of his/her fellow beings (and no - I'm not by ideal weight/height charts!) rather than the smug, self-satisfied and sexist prejeudices some people have felt acceptable to post here!

"Americans love to moralise about fat because, among other reasons, fat has become a convenient stand-in for various characteristics that have been traditionally associated with the pariahs of the moment. Americans who would never dream of consciously allowing themselves to be disgusted by someone's skin colour, or religion, or social class, often feel no compunction about expressing the disgust elicited in them by the sight of people who weigh anything from a lot to a little more than our current absurdly restrictive cultural ideal."

Last year, a young woman who is close to me lost 85 lbs in less than 9 months. She really needed to lose it -- at 5'7 her present 125 lbs is much healthier than 210, although I think she overdid it a little. How did she do it? Not through ridicule, and not through an eating disorder. She joined the LA Weightloss program, and followed their diet suggestions to a T.

She did NOT use their pills, though!

She tells me that the diet she followed was nothing unusual and not hard to follow. SHe could eat pretty well whatever she wanted, including fast food as long as she ordered it as recommended. SHe changed her cooking methods slightly (ie no frying in butter), watched her portion sizes, ate at least the minimum requirements of fruits and veggies every day, and most importantly (according to her) AVOIDED ALL PROCESSED FOODS.

TO her mind, that's the key - avoid all processed foods, and you sidestep a lot of problems. But all the stress she was facing in her personal affairs last year probably 'helped' a lot too, I hate to say!

Do we say the same of smokers, alcoholics, drug addicts, speeding drivers

Yep, certainly do. In fact, there was a local radio ad over here that I heard not long back saying "I do my bit for the local hospital - I don't drive over the speed limit. On average, X more people are injured due to speeding, and that costs Addenbrookes Hospital £Y extra a year."

I don't mind saying that I do adventure sports. But I wouldn't mind paying some extra on my tax to cover that, if there was an option to do so. I already have a higher rate on my life insurance and accident/illness cover, and that's fair enough. Ironically though, adventure sport participants rarely die through that sport, and are generally fairly healthy anyway. Fatties almost always die as a result of fat-related illness though.

You see, that's the problem - they all want a miracle, and they're not prepared to do sod all about it. This miracle diet, that miracle pill, the other miracle surgery. The one thing that really would be a miracle is if every last one of them put less calories into their system than they used up.

This doesn't mean gym membership or Weight Watchers. It means not eating at fast food joints - which in itself will *save* you money. It means exercise - walking for an hour every day would be great, and it requires not one cent in expenditure. A day's hiking each weekend would be even better. It means eating food that doesn't have high-fructose corn syrup in it. It means eating food that will fill you up without adding vast amounts of calories - home-made wholemeal bread is a classic place to start for this, and if you can't be arsed with kneading the dough (which is exercise in itself) then a breadmaker is cheap. It means not eating food that won't fill you up and *does* add tons of calories - ice-cream, chocolate, any kind of candy or dessert.

If they were addicted to drugs or drink or cigarettes, I'd have some sympathy. Those things get you addicted on a chemical level. But "addicted" to food? That's not an addiction, it's just a habit, and breaking a habit is simply a matter of caring to do something about it.

Thanks for the lyrics, Inukshuk!   I got on my bike, I rode, and I saw not ONE fat-bottomed girl out there today. How 'bout that!

But there was one (formerly and oh so very VERY slightly) fat-bottomed girl heavy on my mind as I rode. By the time I got back, I'd come up with this ....


Of all the taunting teasing talk aimed to blast and blister
None hurt worse than *FATSO* for my youngest baby sister
Poor thing was found just slightly round; the rest of us were thin
And comments snide did not subside - she took it on the chin

But in her heart she'd wilted, never good enough to please
Or so she thought -- till at 16 she found a way to ease
her festering self-hatred. She'd vent it all on food!
And so a lifelong battle with bulimia ensued

Before too long that pretty smile, those sparkling eyes were gone
And she became a bag of bones, surly and withdrawn
Withered, body freezing, yet never thin enough to feel
that her former *FATSO!* Self would ever be concealed

And even decades later, as her twilight years draw nearer
Still hates to eat, still hates to dress, still hates what's in the mirror
It's painful just to look at her, and to all of you I say
Those cruel jibes create real hurt that never goes away

How about this Johnny Bond clasic from the forties? We do it in medley with "Fat Bottomed Girls"

THAT FAT GAL OF MINE

She keeps me warm in the winter, shady in the summer time
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine;
And when I see my landlord she's got so much behind that I can hide behind
You don't pay rent when your time is spent like mine.
She's so sweet with the softest heart. She's pretty soft around her other parts;
And at night when I lay me down I don't need a pillow when she's around
Warm in the winter; shady in the summer time
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine.

When she's laughing there's so much of her to have a real good time
I tell all my jokes to that fat gal of mine
She's never fickle; you'd better sign right on the dotted line
The first chance you get with a good fat gal like mine.
Hard luck talk don't bother me; I'm as happy as a honey bee;
If things get tough and times get hard I could render that gal and sell the lard
Warm in the winter; shady in the summer time
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine.

She's a bargain, for the same low price look at all you get
Well I got a lot when I got that gal of mine
And when I'm working she sits at home on her diamonette
I've got no troubles with that fat gal of mine
She's my shelter, in times of storm I helter skelter right under her arm.
She's a beauty if you look at her face and you'd better not look any other place.
Warm in the winter; shady in the summer time
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine.

Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go round

GET ON YOUR BIKES AND RIDE!

I suggest doing exactly what's been done with cigarettes. Make it a law to cover all junk and fast food packaging with huge red-letter warnings ie

EATING THIS GARBAGE CAUSES OBESITY, ACNE, CANCER, DIABETES, TOOTH LOSS, HEART DISEASE, IMPOTENCE, HYPERACTIVITY and MOST GRIEVOUS UGLINESS

Include pictures of crying families at funerals, absolutely miserable-looking people shaped like billowing mounds of bread dough with their rotten teeth falling out, covered with skin eruptions, in hospital beds wired up to a room of monitors etc etc etc.

Hey, while we're at it how about making it a law to paint 3-D pictures of mangled bodies and smashed wrecks on the hoods of all new cars? And red-letter warnings on all the gas pumps too ie

THIS PRODUCT POLLUTES THE ENVIRONMENT, DESTROYS THE ATMOSPHERE AND KILLS BABIES WHILE SUPPORTING INTERNATIONAL OIL MOGULS AND OTHER RELATED TERRORISTS

Graham - where does that argument stop? Do we say the same of smokers, alcoholics, drug addicts, speeding drivers..... You could even have a case against sportsmen of all kinds for the sports injuries that take up medical time and money, and what about those gardeners?

The one person who is really affected by obesity is the obese person. I would agree that this is of concern from a general point of view as it does not bode well for the health of the next generation, who, we are told, may be the first generation of childern to die before their parents, but I would take a guess that, in the majority of cases, those fat people would be happy to lose weight. Problem is, with the myriad number of 'miracle diets' that have been in circulation for so long a lot of people have f****d up their metabolism and have lost the will to try again. That, along with the societal pressures you mentioned can make it very difficult to get back on the wagon.

I think a crucial factor here is to increase education in schools about proper nutrition. We could also do with less of the fancy cookery programmes that seem to saturate the media and get back to showing that a healthy diet can be interesting. Unfortunately it seems,from looking at the contents of supermarkets,that the 'good' foods are less advertised and more expensive than the crap that really has less nutrition value than the calories it contains.

If you want support to try and lose weight it costs - Weightwatchers and others of their ilk are not free. For those on a tight budget this is not something that they can easily finance and the same goes for gym membership. Many GPs in the UK don't have the time or resources to give the kind of support required here.

Education has got to be the key. That and allowing less advertising of the junk food that seems so attractive, and so cheap. Maybe advertisers should have to state the true calorific value of the product that they are advertising and compare that against the reccomended daily calorie allowance for the average person. That might just act as a short sharp shock for some.

One third of women are overweight? Hmmm, I've been doing a little private research over the last couple days. Of the 11 adult women in my family, 4 (or approx 36%) are noticeably overweight. At the mall yesterday, of the 37 women (including teens) I saw, 9 or 25% were overweight. And watching the passersby on my street last night I counted 9 adult women, 2 of whom were overweight. That's less than 25%.

According to my local unofficial observations, on average, 25-36% of adult women are overweight. So if you find the looks of them so awful and offensive, how about directing your gaze to the other 63-75% instead? Presto! no more EEEEEEEEWWWWWW.....

Minding your own business would no doubt spare you all that useless negativity and irritation too, makeing you a happier, more pleasant person to be around.

I think you will find Mr Red was referring to the size of a woman's feet visa vis age. The referrence to shoe sizes on offer in shops is clearly a coded method of saying "average" which hardly describes one woman but does refer to "women". And does imply that the "average" size of all parts of human anatomy is increasing.

I think I know what Mr Red means.

Mike, don't be fooled - it really *does* matter. Check the stats for risk of heart disease, strokes and diabetes caused by excess body fat, and you'll see why it matters. Excess weight is every bit as damaging to your health as addiction to cigarettes, drink or drugs. They're all hard to kick once you've got in that state, and there may be societal pressures that make it more likely for some people to resort to these as a distraction from everyday life, but ultimately it's *your* choice to get in that state in the first place, or *your* inability to recognise that your behaviour has got to that dangerous point. For drink, it might be inability to do without a "breakfast beer". For fat, it might be inability to walk a couple of miles, or inability to fit into clothes with less than a 50" waist.

In the UK, fat people are directly pushing up your taxes by increasing the cost to the NHS in treating these conditions. In the US, they're pushing up your Medicare bills. Let he/she who has to pay the health service bill for Fatty's various lard-related illnesses cast the first criticism. And in that spirit:-

"Get some exercise and quit eating cakes!"

Graham.
