2. That's because weight loss is a huge industry with a lot of money changing hands

The few long term statistics out there are dismal ones, whether the ideal weight was achieved through slow starvation, drugs, or surgery. Fat people often don't lack will power, at all, they've lost the equivalent of their extra body weight many times over, often losing their full body weight more than once before they finally give up.

The morbidly obese are a slightly different story and while they don't end up particularly willowy, they often do manage to keep enough weight off after surgery or other drastic measures to keep enough of it off to increase their life expectancy.
