A major portion of overweight people have no control over it. Eating less is not some magic bullet. Researchers have found that genetics play a major roll. How many super skinny people eat 10 times more than the Fat gut but never gain a ounce? Genetics. Why do some people no matter how hard they try are still fat? Genetics. Medical conditions and medicines cause weight gain. The health nuts need to get off their high horse. I worked a physically demanding job and never lost weight. I have been fat my whole life. I just wish people would accept us as we are and not what they think we should be.

Even though you do relate a common stereotype of overweight people, we must be careful not to stereotype all thin people either. Not all thin people believe these things that you mentioned here. As for the stereotype, it is still acceptable to bash overweight people--but this is done more covertly than overtly--like in seeking employment, for example.

thanks for clarifying. too many people here do the exact thing they complain others are doing, and don't even realize it.

Yeah well eating a large pizza all by yourself doesn't help. No seriously I agree with you to an extent. I've known some overweight people that eat twice as muchas me and I've known some who ate like a bird. I am the opposite, I work at it to keep weight. But I think your stereotype is a little overboard
