Jesus Dane, I thought your reading comprehension was better than that.
You know how I feel about this. Depression and emotional issues ARE real and should be treated. Lumping obesity as a whole into a disease is ridiculous as you already stated.
Again, this isn't me bashing on people who have gone through or are going through tons of issues because I myself haven't ever had to go through any of it. This is about the fact we know exactly what causes obesity, there isn't a magic secret. Can it be the by product of another disease? Sure. Is it largely related to a disease for most of the population? No.
I know first hand that you're a good dude. You've gone out of your way to write me an entire plan of action to stop the cycle. And I appreciate you immensely for taking the time to do it.
