So, they will constantly feel hunger even if they have consumed an adequate amount of calories.
    er.... a person's stomach goes back to a normal size, dependent on the amount of food consumed.

    sorry, but then nobody needs to be obese. i don't get why being healthy should deter that fact..

    er.... yeah, freedom is absolute.

    Is it "inherently illiberal" to ban anything? Even if it's in the best interest of society?

    I'm a libertarian though, so I don't support banning anything that harms person or property.

    It's the only way to curb the obesity epidemic, but yeah, doing things for the interest of society is evil... haha.. got it...

    This video made me laugh because my name is Neil; however I have an opposite weight problem, I have to keep myself from being underweight.
    So? Where does this "right to be fat" stem from, and why frankly is it valid?

    Bitches need to nut up and get thin. Lifestyle change.

    But at the same time, people should be more supportive. But not tolerant.

    We also eat foods, well..we're frankly not designed to eat, at least on a large scale.

    Our meat-sweet diet is far too fat/sugar laden for our needs/physiology.

    Precisely why people should mind their own business rather than giving someone shit for their weight.

    And as for people and the system that influences the likelihood of weight issues, it's one of those things where the common good leads to individual benefits.

    Imagine if there were no roads because people ought to be responsible for their own mobility. Sure they can pay for their own private roads to be built, but it's less headache, cheaper to the individual and efficient to have public roads.

    I too think people ought to shut up about others' weight and instead focus on being happy and healthy. Being overweight or underweight is hard enough without random assholes telling you that you're disgusting and a liability... the kicker of course being that they're often unhealthy in their own ways.

    Depending on your optimism level, you could say they beat anorexia.
