I am overweight and there are times when people look down their noses at me.
It really doesn't matter if I am around other Christians, a restaurant, a store, etc...According to society thin and shapely is the "in beautiful."
Have you not seen society?
in the us
I"d say that's a definite no. Healthcare costs are the biggest drag on the economy. If young people want to live in a society that can afford to employ them, they better get on the fresh foods train!
Sorry. Can't help myself! http://youtu.be/xa0oCp-TJ_Q
Research. there might be farmer's markets and garden collectives in your area. Check out supermarket flyers for produce sales. Get nutritional recipes online and specialize in a few for yourself. Brown rice with complimentary veggies can go far! Likewise oatmeal with fresh fruit. It can be done.
is that a joke? when was it unnacceptable?
mmm no i don't think it is "good". it's not "abnormal" just not very healthy.
people really shouldn't discriminate, but at the same time, it's not our biological ideal, at all.
More like being fat is normal..(which is not)
According to the internet, yes. The average for places like UK and America is meant to be overweight far as I know. I don't really mind, I just find it disappointing seeing people shame anyone for their size (more common now to shame skinny people though, "big is beautiful, bones are for dogs") in order to make someone else feel better.
It seems to be considered the norm now. It's a damn shame.
not acceptable but used to , ,, still not healthy and society trying to get that message through
Being "overweight" used to be the ideal--if proved you were successful enough to afford to feed yourself and your family well.
is society getting to the point that being an ******* is acceptable?
