ok honestly im not sure why ur on this website but were gonna ignore that lmao. people ate before processed foods. u can still eat fairly healthy without a ton of money. rice, beans, grilled chicken, legumes, a pound of fruit literally costs $3.94. all excuses if u want easy ur gonna get the outcome of being fat. not everyone is skinny because not everyone wants to go the extra mile. being aware of high fructose corn syrup and how it has brought on obesity is important. just dont buy processed foods its not very difficult i dont. planet fitness memberships are $10 a month and yes ik they deserve respect but they spread misinformation like "fat is healthy", "wanting to lose weight is fatphobic" and its honestly just delusional.
don’t know why you’re on this site if you’re so judgemental towards fat people. maybe ed twt is a better place for you but we’re going to ignore all of that lmao
has it ever occurred to you that maybe they’re just trying to learn how to feel comfortable in their own bodies? society and people like you are horribly cruel to fat people. while i’ve never been overweight, i used to get fat shamed and name called quite a bit at the higher end of a healthy bmi. all the name calling hurt, and to make myself feel better i used to reassure myself with the idea that i looked good and was healthy regardless of my weight. maybe i was wrong, but what’s so bad about that? i think it’s a little hypocritical to judge people for being unhealthy when we’re discussing this on an eating disorder forum. i don’t agree with the whole ‘losing weight is fatphobic’ thing but the rest of it really isn’t harming you. nobody owes it to you to lose weight and if they can be comfortable with themselves at a higher weight then they’re already doing better than both me and you
and as a matter of fact eating healthy does cost a lot more than consuming processed foods. i grew up very poor, where my family could often only afford a limited amount of foods because we didn’t have much money to spend. so naturally we’d head over to the large family sized pizzas for £1, or the four pack of ramen for 50p instead of the single pack of strawberries for £1.50, or the small bag of rice for £4. it is much easier to feed a family on a budget with unhealthy processed foods, instead of buying many separate ingredients to make healthy meals. as for the whole gym thing, most people have full time jobs, adult responsibilities and childcare. i see from your profile that you’re only 20, so i’m guessing that you’ve never experienced what it’s like to be on your feet 24/7 and barely having any time to spend with family, let alone going to a gym. i’ve experienced this firsthand and it really isn’t as easy as you make it out to be so be a little more understanding next time. not everyone is skinny because people have more important things to worry about in life, such as providing for their families and paying the bills
