    I have watched so many people truly and seriously try to lose weight and fail miserably.

    And a lot of them really didn't eat a whole lot, either. They seemed destined by genetics to get fat.

    My sympathy to those of you who are prone to getting fat.

    I cannot imagine what its like to have an appetite that is constantly enticing you to eat more food than your body needs.

    Half of U.S. adults will be obese by 2030, report says
    Based on trends, half of the adults in the United States will be obese by 2030 unless the government makes changing the food environment a policy priority, according to a report released Thursday on the international obesity crisis in the British medical journal the Lancet.

    We should expand the healthcare system in the US in order to be able to respond to the massive influx of people with a shorter left leg.

    So what will it be?

    Food Nazis or Health Care covering Gastric Surgery for the obese?

    Eating healthy, and still being fat. Or, eating anything you want and still being fat. Or getting gastric surgery and hope the fat stays off.

    Seems like if this is true a lot of doctors who specialize in this will be making some BIG BUCKS in the future, unless obesity is going to become the 'norm' and nobody even cares what size they are anymore.

    So people backslide in their care for watching calory intake and they get less and less exercise, which burns calories.

    It's like quitting smoking. There is an urge to eat when sustenance is not really needed. Both require a decision.

    Calculate Calories Needed for Goal Weight


    It's as simple as that.

    I have battled my weight my entire life. At 5'5" I weighed as much as 290. I've lost weight and gained it right back over the years many times. This last time around it has stuck and it has been a year going on two and I weigh 210. My son started with me and he has lost 102 so far and looks great. loosing weight is something you do your whole life and just like diabetics we must watch our weight constantly. Exercise and diet combined is how you have to live when you have a weight condition.

    That being said I believe that there should be now way in Hell that anyone but they be responsible for themselves.

    University of Melbourne professor of medicine Joseph Proietto is either just trying to make a name for himself or an idiot. Or both. I'd like to see the specifics of this so-called study.

    The people who are obese due to genetics ie "they can't really help it" are in the minority. And to say "exercise and diet no use for obese" is downright silly.

    Interesting how so much of the focus is on diet and so little on exercise.

    you can exercise till you die from exaustion, but, you will not loose the weight until you portion control and watch what you eat in calories.
