"Obesity is a disease not a decision"

This is a new campaign that the American Medical Association actually declared obesity a disease! Billboards with this phrase are popping up around the country.

I've worked out for 10 years straight and I definitely sacrifice eating shit food even though I enjoy it just as much as the next guy. THIS IS A DECISION I HAVE CONSCIOUSLY MADE.

And I have plenty of fat friends. None of them have ever claimed it is a disease. They know exactly why they are overweight, most just don't care enough and are lazy to eat right and workout. I am fine with that but please don't tell me it is because you have a disease.

There are a few cases where this a classification of disease is true...thyroid issues. Most are not this issue however and a diagnosis of a metabolic disorder is way over diagnosed for people who are just lazy/uneducated.

Secondly, What's up with the slutty chic/ads/banner at the very bottom of the page. Yuck!

It's a decision of laziness. Maybe a disease of the mind.

Depends on your view of laziness.

I've always been big and I've had more than a few jobs where I worked 10-12 hrs a day.

Disease? Maybe.

It's solely up to the individual to cure it, though.

I'm a fat ass, but It's my fault I'm fat.

It's not a disease, afaic, but its not the same for everyone. I'm pretty overweight. I have friends who are way lighter than me who exercise less, eat more shit, and sit around more. So while, yeah, it's my decision to not put in the hours to get as light as them, it's also a little more complex than a fat person being lazier than a skinny person.

Agree with this.

And while I wouldn't call it a disease, I would say there is a certain amount of addiction that goes hand-in-hand with it.

I don't think it's so much a decision or addiction as just not thinking about it.

Time to eat, here's some food, seems a normal meal, back to work.

The decision is to NOT eat and TO move around more. Sit at a computer, go eat some shit, sit back down at the computer is just too easy a routine.

IMO, there is a distinct qualitative difference between deciding to take a drink or smoke a cig than 'deciding' on too big a lunch.

certainly, we are not all shaped the same. but, obesity is a disease.

Long-term, health care costs more for the healthy. They live longer and die slower, more costly deaths.
