As has been explained before, there is plenty of objective evidence to back up the assertion that being obese is unhealthy.The thing is, the studies that supposedly correlate obesity with increased mortality and certian deseases? those are very subjective claims to make!
I don't think that is quite true. For one, there would be no statistical method that could be used to effectively measure that. For two, individual's genetics vary and so no person will respond to being obese exactly the same as the next.And really, even for obese people the health risk is tiny: mortality a few months ahead of time.
I don't doubt any of that. Anyone with a brain should know the best way to live life is in moderation.On the other hand, one CAN conclusively state that yo-yo (loosing and regaining wieght) dieting has adverse long term health effects. Also remember. The former study can't adjust to the people who might have higher mortality AS A RESULT of the rediculous deiting standards that the mainstream medical community tries to get these people to do (In the book is a real life story by an 'obese' person who went to his docter with a sinus infection and got a lecture about his wieght- which is why I don't trust the medical community on this one).
