"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.

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

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.

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.

i imagine for some people it is a disease and i also think that certain people are more likely to gain weight than others.

i also think that for a significant % of people it's a decision/excuse/weakness. They like to eat and end up overweight.

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 would imagine the american medical association is campaigning for this so insurance will eventually cover all the shit related to fat asses.

I think they actually said they did it to give obesity a different classification so that further research could be done to prevent and treat.

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