lol.. fat acceptance..

Its not like anyone has anything against overweight people in the first place, but you cant force anyone to be attracted to you.


how did u miss michelle Obama's thingy that was nationwide... and totally discriminatory toward obese people. (sarcasm there)

I think being overweight is an interesting situation: it's kinda wrong to be discriminatory to them, but the law nor the nation actually encourages that kind of behavior since being overweight is technically unhealthy. I say technically because some people have a condition that gives them no choice.

Actually you are right!
I'm not so sure about other countries, but its pretty hard to eat healthy in America when you're poor.
Healthy food costs so much. While junk food costs less.
If you're poor, the healthiest you can get is eating frozen food. & it is pretty shitty most times tbh.
Also, poor people usually work all day. So they can't have time to exercise either. I'm pretty sure the costs of healthy foods & amount of hours people work just to get a roof over their head contribute to obesity in America greatly.
Also I know Michelle Obama tried to help with having healthier lunches for schools, but didn't work out bc schools don't wanna spend the money on healthier foods for kids.

Hmm was there a problem with fat people to begin with?


You tell me. This is what happens when people spend too much time on tumblr and 'fit in' with the fat acceptance.

what? what are you talking about? ok, i think fat acceptance is good. I think we should all love our bodies but that doesnt mean that the really really obese people should just continue eating! i think morbidly obese people need to lost alot of weight, not ALOT ALOT but just some so they can walk a good distance. I think that everyone should stop bullying people based on theyre body types and stop wanting everyone to be like a skinny model on a magazine

...um... lol how can you say this....

So a frozen dinner is $3. If you hate that 3x a day, that's $9, then that's $63 per week...

A 5 lb bag of potatoes is $3.52, 2 lbs of spinach is $5.02, 2 lbs of tomatoes is $5, 2 bunches of carrots $4, 1 lb lettuce is $2.29, 1lb of cabbage is $1.02, 2 bunches of broccoli Is $7, 19.2 oz of whey protein is $13.99.... so that comes out to $42.... Far healthier, far cheaper. Of course, for any non-vegetarian, that's going to be hell on earth, but it sure is far healthier.

Junk food is a comfort luxury - not a necessity for poor people -_-.

Tumblr didn't start the whole fat acceptance thing or made it worse. It kinda made it more known. if that makes sense?
When Tumblr got more popular, they just moved over there, tbh. Cuz popular social media sites are the easiest way to get the word out. & bc tumblr got more popular, people would hear almost everything about what's going on there & get stuff from there (I'm sure you probably see a screenshot of a tumblr post probably at least once a day now if you regularly go on Facebook or twitter maybe even instagram.)
I've been on tumblr for nearly 5 years & while these people do exist on there, they aren't really listened to & actually hated by most actual social activitists on there lol. also keep in mind a good amount of those kinda people are between the ages 13-17. & obviously they don't know better. so if you exclude those kids, their numbers are small on there.

I'm a poor person. That's actually pretty expensive. I live in California btw, so things are more expensive as well. In a household with 3 women (me, my mom & sister) we spend around $40-$60 of food a week. for all three of us. we don't have a big plate of food to eat for dinner & often skip lunch as well btw. & we try to have fruits around & they are the most expensive.
Junk food is not a luxury. Healthy eating is. Why else would junk be so cheap & theirs one practically in every corner in America?
This is why its so damn annoying when vegans try to get us to be vegans too. we can't fricking afford to even if we wanted to

Actually, when you exercise more, your body tells you to eat more (i.e. you get hungrier) to keep you at the same weight. Because evolution did not prepare us for the time when "oh no, there's too many tasty calories all around me!" was going to be a bigger danger to our lives than starvation.


It's a myth that you eat more when you workout.


Oh, hey, it actually looks like you're right, but you could do better than just 'that's a myth' without substantiation.

(Freudian slip, but works.) :)

I was on Food Stamps for a while, and buying anything frozen was like buying caviar, only not as good:
Oo, one whole entree for $2.99! I could buy a bunch of carrots and a bunch of celery for that, and have the makings for a week of soup or stir-fry.

OTOH, I had a crockpot, an electric wok, a rice steamer and a bread machine, and knew that Real Food is Cheaper.
With real carrots, onions, dry beans, water, etc., and most importantly, the knowhow, you can make a half-gallon of real "homestyle" soup for the price of two cans of Progresso Offensively-Advertised Overpriced Homestyle Sodium Soup, now in the giant 2-Serving can. (Not condensed, of course--Adding water to chicken noodle, whaddya, in kindergarten? )

Compare the prices of pasta, flour, bagged frozen vegetables, rice, etc., with packages or frozen entrees that use them, and you start to realize that Big-Food is a conspiracy to enslave the recipe-illiterate.
All those years you girls bragged you were too "liberated" to learn to cook, and were going to find some guy to bake you those strawberry-cheesecake cupcakes twice a week? The lack of curiosity or ability has a price, and in Big-Food's case, it's a heavy one.

well, the other side of that is the time it takes to cook has to be factored in as well in to the cost.
