Let’s get this out of the way…
I’m not going to be politically correct here. I’m not going to be nice just for the sake of being nice. If you want someone to apologize or to hold your hand and walk you through your life, then look elsewhere. I’m not going to feel sorry for you.
If you’re reading this, and you’re fat (odds are you are), this blog will either piss you off and out of anger you will go eat something, or it will make you think twice the next time you go looking for those ho-ho’s.
My inspiration for this blog is mostly to vent my incredible frustration with the world’s new-found fascination with “Solving” the obesity epidemic. Whether it’s in the form of a new diet, or a scientist has discovered yet another gene that is “responsible” for people stuffing their faces massive weight gain, or some company has released a new magic pill, almost all of it is just a bunch of bullshit. And what’s happening despite all of the millions spent on research? People are fatter than ever.
Everyone is just ignoring the fact that people are just less active today compared to 30+ years ago, and that their diets are MUCH worse. There’s no mystery to solve.
These people that blame their genetics, or those that point their pudgy fingers at fast food restaurants, are not taking responsibility for their own actions. They’re just making excuses, and blaming anything and everyone but themselves.
You may find my writing to be harsh, tactless, without compassion, and very negative at times. The reason for this is because the people I write about frustrate me immensely. Here’s why:
There are countless blogs, websites, and other resources out there that offer seemingly endless positive support for people looking to make a change in their life for the better. It kills me that there are so many people that complain about their situation, but do nothing about it. They don’t take advantage of the tools that are easily accessible to them. I believe some of these people just need to be kicked in the ass, and to have some strong emotions drawn from them. My blog just happens to do that sometimes. It also draws out a sense of humor from some. I believe no matter what situation in life you are in, you have to have a sense of humor about it.
Ultimately, despite my harsh tone and incredibly demeaning banter, I hope to enlighten a few people, and open their eyes to some truthiness behind all the confusing bullshit being thrown at us about obesity, health issues, and our rapidly depreciating diet.
