Obesity-to bring about its own terms

Reading a post about our own seeming self defeating prejudices against ourselves-in this case denying ourselves range and opportunity for movement. I couldn't help thinking that this is surely the point of the obesity crisis. To bring about its own terms-being fat as unhealthful.

The prognosis of fat people would be too variable without this kind of manipulation being applied to us. So there is a real understanding that fat people are not as "inactive" as we are supposed to be. Or as unhealthy.

I doubt we would be any less active, overall, than anyone else otherwise. Especially when you consider heavier bodies tend to use up more energy to do everything.
