Telling people being obese isn't unhealthy--not productive [View all]

I think we should all celebrate our diverse shapes and sizes. Our society should stop creating unrealistic images of what is a "good" figure.

Having said that, FAT kills. If someone is more than 20 lbs overweight for many years, it will have a negative effect on their health.
Obesity is more of a symptom than a disease. The underlying causes of obesity vary for each individual, but we must continue to promote healthy lifestyle of diets with more plants and less animal products, more frequent and longer duration of exercise and physical activity, and good emotional health.
