The Huffpost author literally did not read the scientific article he was quoting.

This article is, plain simply, liberal bullshit. People are responsible for their actions, and actions do have consequences. I wish liberals would stop trying to avoid taking responsibility for their actions.

Nice job reading the footnotes, I'm sure we all know it's junk science but that's even better (ignoring the science.)

There's a Tess Holliday looking broad with this quote:
Quote:This is Corissa Enneking at her lightest: She wakes up, showers and smokes a cigarette to keep her appetite down. She drives to her job at a furniture store, she stands in four-inch heels all day, she eats a cup of yogurt alone in her car on her lunch break. After work, lightheaded, her feet throbbing, she counts out three Ritz crackers, eats them at her kitchen counter and writes down the calories in her food journal.

Or not. Some days she comes home and goes straight to bed, exhausted and dizzy from hunger, shivering in the Kansas heat. She rouses herself around dinnertime and drinks some orange juice or eats half a granola bar. Occasionally she’ll just sleep through the night, waking up the next day to start all over again.

She is lying. That is not enough calories to maintain 400 pounds.

Also, this idea that you'll be fighting hunger the rest of your life to lose weight is both a lie and demoralizing. I've lost a bunch of weight and I'm rarely hungry. Almost never. Being addicted to food (as I would say I was) and having a craving is not hunger.

This is so fucking far out of the realm of plausibility that I gained 4 lbs. just copying and pasting that lying-ass hooker's words.

(also, you should cut out that fucking orange juice--that's nothing but sugar, you fat bitch! I thought you were trying to lose weight..)

Heart disease being the #1 killer in the US disagrees with everything in this article. I think they watched too much of the movie "heavyweights" as kids.

RE: Huffington Post: "Everything You Know About Obesity is Wrong"
I’m gonna play devil’s advocate sort of, and mention that the article does have a few valid points.

The bulk of farm subsidies go to corn and grain producers, to produce the foods that will make you fat and kill you.

The medical industry seldom offers much in the way of guidance for weight loss. There’s little money to be made through insurance reimbursement for nutrition consultation. In addition, the industry hasn’t come to a consensus on the best dietary approach: low carb or low fat.

Healthy eating is a bit of a luxury. This is especially true in cities where low income areas lack full size grocery stores, and instead they rely on corner store bodegas that sell processed junk food that can sit on the shelves for months.

Fat people don’t want to associate with other fat people. It’s because fat people looking at each other is the same as looking in the mirror.

There was plenty of BS in there as well. You may be able to carry around 100 extra pounds in your 20s and early 30s, but eventually that weight will catch up. It’ll destroy your hips and knees. Eventually it’s gonna turn into heart disease and diabetes.

I was disgusted when the fat woman decided it was time to be “fat and proud” and proudly requested a table instead of a booth at a restaurant.

RE: Huffington Post: "Everything You Know About Obesity is Wrong"
I have the saddest story ever told:

Back when I was in school in the 90's I was in the English lit class with, quite frankly, all of the hottest and most popular girls bar one. Seriously distracting to a teenage boy as you can imagine. There was one girl, Emma, who had a killer body - as pretty much any teenage girl has - a cute face, and she was actually nice, not stuck up and full of herself like most of the others. A solid 8, what you'd call an English Rose in looks. Obviously never bothered with approach as I was an awkward teenager and didn't have the social standing to stand much chance of success. But if I had to choose one of those babes to get with, it was her.

Anyway, fast forward 5 years and I'm in my early 20's. Gone is the skinny body, curtain haircut, blotchy skin, teenage awkwardness. Been in the gym for years now, filled out, benching 300lbs, curling 100lbs, martial artist with progression. Was crushing it with women even without trying - probably why, most likely as my close female friend told me - prime of my life from a physical point of view, at least.

I'm going hell for leather on a treadmill at the gym, when a chubby 4 steps onto the one next to me and starts a light jog. I glance over...hmm, there's something familiar about this chick, can't quite fathom it. Keep going full pelt and she's huffing and puffing already. Slow down to a jog myself before the next sprint. Look over again, she smiles back but can't speak due to the effort of a light jog. She's got that blush/sweat on that white girls get that reminds me of when you bang them good and hard, you know? She's not properly obese, but she's carrying 30lbs too much. I look forward again, gearing up for the sprint, but then realisation hits me:

"Holy shit. That's Emma!"

I'm so shocked at the difference 30lbs made...from a 8/10 WB to 4/10 WNB. I don't feel happy that a social superior from school has been brought low by obesity, I feel sad for her. In just 5 years, mind. She's 22, not 42 and 4 kids later so there's no excuse. But damn, what a change!

I stop and get off the treadmill, she does the same, we're both huffing and puffing. She smiles at me again and it looks like she's going to talk to me, make a connection...

...I fuck straight off to the free weights section.

Saddest moment of her life.

So there you go, fat ladies: you might meet your very own Matsufubu in the prime of his life. He will ignore you. That is all.
