Good afternoon everybody
I was reading a good few posts today and had a wee thought. Please be kind in your replies.
Do any of you think that being fat and obese could or should be classed more as an eating disorder?
I think that sometimes people will see a fat person and think look at that state of that how could you let your self get so big. That person must be stupid / thick. I was reading the post "what skinny people say" and one of the things was it's really very simple eat less move more. WE KNOW THAT!!!! but yet something in our brain does't compute.
As much as we hate it people do judge.
I have done a little bit of research on Anorexia online and what I have come across is people who suffer from the illness are fixated on food it is what they think about a LOT of the time. When your bigger and trying to lose weight are we not fixated on food????
The difference is we don't come under the heading of eating disorder or illness I feel like it's an ED snobbery
Also we hear in the media all the time about the obesity epidemic but to be honest I don't think enough support is available.
What do you Guys think?
