Fat people be warned

I once wrote about short people and a short friend of mine didn’t talk to me for two weeks. I took my share of the bitter wild oats. Today am embarking on fat people and my sincere prayer is that fat people don’t get offended. I need to be forgiven in advance and I think am forgiven. If you won’t forgive me then those are your problems.

When people say that you are fat, they are not actually praising you. Rather they are reminding you that you that obesity is coming your way. In simple terms, being obese means that a person carries too much weight, specifically fat, around their body. To gain this extra fat, a person needs to eat more calories than they burn, which is generally thought to be the result of a sedentary lifestyle and the consumption of high-energy foods.

Eating is fun, right? But there is need to be careful with what we eat. To stop mindless eating, experts recommend eating foods low in calories and high in fiber and water, using smaller plates and serving utensils, being aware of the “clean plate mentality,” avoiding all-you-can-eat restaurants and buffets, and not doing other activities while eating, such as watching T.V.

In tales we have been advised not to get between a man and his food. Men love their food to the point they don’t eat to live but live to eat.  When given a huge plate of food the chap can reduce it to a miserable size in just a few seconds. If you eat anything that comes your way better changed that behavior. I knew of a man who would be given food and in less than five minutes he had destroyed all the evidence that he was given food.  Such careless eaters might be the suitable target for obesity.

If getting fat doesn’t scare you then listen to this:  According to a research study, obese men and women are reported being significantly less sexually satisfied than the general population. While women may mind about their changes in weight and size, men seem to be less concerned and less mindful. Maybe they are more obsessed with eating than the women. Actually, children with working mothers have a greater risk of becoming obese, even if they have a full-time stay-at-home father.

In case you didn’t know, the medical cost for obese people in USA is $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. And the estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the U.S. was $147 billion in 2008. This is an amount of money that Uganda cannot easily raise leave alone spending it.  We would rather spend such a gigantic amount on the army and defense than on fat people.
