It has been the policy of the US government since the Great Depression to have available to the US population an abundance of cheap calories.

Of course people have eating disorders just like people have body dysmorphic issues who spend thousands of dollars trying to keep from aging when all they are doing is making themselves look like fools to the rest of the world. It's all quite sad. The person who eats too much for comfort and the person who vists the plastics doctor for comfort. Both are extremes that are pathetic.

I wonder what 40 pounds of saline on one's chest does to one's BMI.

Not bad for a democrat? lol

Its just alot easier giving advice than actually getting in shape. If it was so easy, Im sure everyone would be in shape. I am sure folks with medical issues arent heavy for any reason of their own. Maybe you have to understand why a person is out of shape, first?

Fat people eat at McDonalds and buffets. That leaves the nicer restaurants to the rest of us.

The percentage of Americans who are obese (with a BMI of 30 or higher) has tripled since 1960, to 34 percent, while the incidence of extreme or "morbid" obesity (BMI above 40) has risen sixfold, to 6 percent. The percentage of overweight Americans (BMI of 25 to 29.9) has held steady: It was 34 percent in 2008 and 32 percent in 1961. What seems to have happened is that for every healthy-weight person who "graduated" into overweight, an overweight person graduated into obesity.

Because obesity raises the risk of a host of medical conditions, from heart disease to chronic pain, the obese are absent from work more often than people of healthy weight. The most obese men take 5.9 more sick days a year; the most obese women, 9.4 days more. Obesity-related absenteeism costs employers as m u ch as $6.4 billion a year, health economists led by Eric Finkelstein of Duke University calculated.

Even when poor health doesn't keep obese workers home, it can cut into productivity, as they grapple with pain or shortness of breath or other obstacles to working all-out. Such obesity-related "presenteeism," said Finkelstein, is also expensive. The very obese lose one month of productive work per year, costing employers an average of $3,792 per very obese male worker and $3,037 per female. Total annual cost of presenteeism due to obesity: $30 billion.
