  • Southwest had the best policy ever, until the obese overwhelmed them with lawsuits. That woman, who dreads flying, is the absolute dread of most other passengers. She knows that she doesn’t fit in one seat, so buy or ask for two. Obesity is a real health concern, but the solution is not to pretend that it doesn’t exist. Be self aware, and remember that other people also have rights. Large passengers need two tickets.

  • im my college everyone is like 200 pounds with gaint double chins even the girls lol. their are only like 10 fit people including myself that i saw on campus the rest are fucking fatasses

  • What’s the first thing that come to your mind when you think about Americans?
    “Big guns, big trucks, big asses… And everything in Texas are bigger”

  • Im american and I agree,there are some fat ass people, im not fat and I tend to keep it that way, but I dont control how people eat and I dont control what people buy or sell, it a free market economy so we kinda have to deal with it.i plan too live a healthy life

  • A meter is not a meter…. YES IT FUCKING IS. A calorie is a calorie, because a calorie is measurement of energy… it is what it is.

  • American’s vaule food then anything else….. restaurants everyday to stuff their gut. they eat for pleasure instead of eating to live. i haven’t been to a single restaurant in 6 years… I’m proud of that. i only eat 1 meal a day. i eat to stay alive and not eat for pleasure.

  • Known you mean six thousand years God made the Earth 6 days rested on the seventh about 6,500. ago but I do believe it is a disease and also sin Problem but I’d love to learn how the battle it I am praying all the time and I believe it’s a disease that can the cured and I believe if we acknowledge it has a disease and a sin problem we can get very close to finding cure

  • IF YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME TO PREPARE YOUR HEALTHY FOOD AT NIGHT, I HOPE THAT YOU HAVE “TIME” TO PREPARE YOUR POCKET FULL OF MONEY TO GIVE TO THE HOSPITAL AND DOCTORS….

  • I love how they bring up the topic as if most fat people are the victims, like they don’t have a choice, but then immediately point out that it’s their choices of what they ate that made that fat. Lmao, we’ve known a calorie is not a calorie for at least the last 30 years. The REAL problem is people don’t have the education and self discipline to choose and avoid certain foods. Once we collectively choose to not eat crap, then the crap will go out of business. So, i’m still not convinced obese people are victims.

  • I have a question that I really hope someone can explain. Around 15:00 it is said, that sugar is dangerous because of the fructose and it’s because of the fructose that sugar is both fat and carp. But fructose is in fruit too (a lot of it actually), yet he just said that you don’t find this combination anywhere in nature.

  • Youre fat, not only do you weigh as much as two but you take the space of 2 persons. So yes you will pay for taking fat along with you.

  • If you’re so big and need to fit in more seats then yes pay more because it’s taking more seats for less passengers. However, if you are ok in one seat, pregnant women or even on luxury place on plane like first class then no don’t get told to pay more

  • i think the best way is to start by go to the nearest local market,buy fresh produce n start to cook it in ur own kitchen from scratch…dont buy instant product fr supermarket…that way u can live healthier…then exercise well…dont eat junk food…thats it…

  • This specific cholesterol manual “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) is not only high-quality medication but economical as well. I began to make use of this adhering to my doctor`s recommendations to lower my blood cholesterol. I observe good results within 14 days merely. Its really great! I experienced less discomfort and also started to be a lot more dynamic daily! The results of my examination showed that I am recovering..

  • You’re FAT. You slop into other people’s seats and you’re a hazard in an emergency. You have seconds to get off a plane in an emergency, and one obese passenger can make sure that no one gets off and everyone dies.

  • I agree with the blonde chick about super fat people, I want my own seat. I also would not want her wearing that skirt next to me though, would make me uncomfortable-

  • In theory agree have a few wider seats in the airplanes and charge more for them. Slim seats lower cost, and wide seats higher cost, average out the same number of seats. But when the family goes on holiday and say the husband is slim and the wife is large she of course will want to stay with the family in the slim seats but she won’t fit into.

  • Everything you buy in a box is no food, vegetables come out of the ground, fruit grow on three’s,fish comes from the sea, seeds grow on plants ect.All processed food is poisson for your body.!!!!!!!!!!!

  • My husband and I always pay for two seats, he is a tall man and over 300 lbs. And Southwest has never given us a problem, we pay upfront for two seats for him because we do not want to go through this problem.

  • My aunt has two children. On is rail thin, the other is morbidly obese. So I can’t see how what the mother eats is causing obesity.

  • I have absolutely nothing against people of size. But there is a point where something has to be done.
    One seat should be a certain price, for a certain measurement. Anything over the measurement of one seat, should be the price of 2 seats. It is just fair.

  • Funny factAmerica ranks 9th in obesity rates amongst all countries. We are fat, but not the fattest. (closes eyes and waits for the USA hate train)

  • But fat people matter and they have a out of control eating habit and no discipline and laziness i know ive been fat before.. theres hope people change and i have faith fat people will become fit. Its possible

  • Just wonder who is getting classed as overweight,I am running 20miles on treadmill would be a 4 hr 24 min Marathon,resting heart rate 44 and yet I am not far off being classed as overweight,I am 52 (sorry if I sound crass)

  • Haven’t seen you hit the Power industry yet, Hasan. Can you look into how bad power companies are (fossils fuels, nuclear, wind and solar companies included)

  • I still cant believe that most fat people dont give a damn about their weight. If they got so much money to spend, then send it to me. Im always hungry and yet I may survive with 2 sandwiches, and fries. I wish I could eat like fat people:(

  • CICO is the only thing that has ever worked for me. And yes not all calories are equal but they’re not equal based on nutrients. A nutrient dense meal will keep you fuller for longer than a calorie dense meal even if they’re the same amount of calories. A nutrient dense meal has more volume so you’re less likely to over eat or snack later. It’s all a matter of sustainability. You can lose weight by eating 1200 calories of Doritos every day and that’s it. But it isn’t sustainable because you’ll be starving and also… you will be soooo malnourished.

  • I eat 5+ times a day (besides my dessert and other small meals) but I’m still thin (not skeleton thin but ectomorph kind of thin). Docotors have got it all wrong there are several factors that cause obesity besides overeating… I am a living witness (and no, I don’t have HIV)

  • Food supply is flooded with sugar. Probably explains why most people are so lazy, because the sugar drains energy. It’s absolutely ridiculous how lazy people are now. Everyone is scared to death to work or do anything and lots of people stay pissed off if they face any sort of inconvenience at all. Look at all the road rage. People racing to get somewhere so they can go sit on the couch and gorge themselves with sweets because they are so tired from being on Facebook all day. It’s absolutely ridiculous.

  • How come avocado does not contain carbohydrate and fat at the same time? Avocado contains both. He said the opposite.?? Can someone explain me why he said so?

  • My mom got addicted to coca cola and drank almost every single day of atleast 2 cans. She got diabetes and died 5 years ago. This was a lesson for me that sugar will kill me if eat or drink too much. I got rid of processed sugar completely in my diet to save myself 20 years from now.

  • I came from country with 3% obesity. In my country people love homemade food. Fast food are bad tasting and i feel sick whenever i eat fast food.
    How can American eat so much trash food is beyond my logic

  • Hey, man… Give that lady a break. Are YOU going to eliminate TURKEY BUTTS from everyone’s diet? NO? Well… SOMEONE’s gottta do it. Thank Shecky Green SOMEONE has taken on the cause of ridding the world of turkey butt.
