You are no better than you should be, demonising all fatties indeed. What makes you think we all want to be fat, or for that matter that we all binge on burgers, chips and cake. Personally I dislike chocolate, can take or leave cake, biscuits and other sweet stuff, only eat burgers if I'm out meeting with friends at MacDonalds (seldom in other words, prefer their coffee) and my daily calorie intake is under 1000 cal. BUT my doctor did put me on a new medication with one rotten side effect (and lots of nasty ones but they generally don't affect me luckily) which is weight gain. Example: my dosage was upped just before Ash Wednesday, I weighed myself on Ash Wednesday and again on Easter Saturday to see how much I had managed to lose during Lent, hoping it would be slightly more than my normal pound every couple of weeks. The actual result was 4 stone in the period of Lent, when I not only cut out any/all sweet or fatty stuff but actually fasted on several days in a week. So next time you want to rave on about those of us who are overweight you might like to remember that we don't all eat a mountain of yukky sweet fatty junk food, some of us have the NHS to blame for our predicament. Incidentally, I began and roughly 7-1/2 stone and am now 16 stone, all thanks to the NHS and arthritis - latter the cause of NHS added problems.I would like nothing better than to lose half my body weight but can't see it happening, short of the miracle I daily pray for.
