Are people too obsessed with their weight??

Postby Gloria » Thu Nov 04, 2004 1:39 pm

In my opinion, I think that people, especially teenagers, are very obsessed with their weight. Fats have created a big psychological burden to them, the increase of 1 pound can make them want to die. And I think this phenomenon is caused by the misconception of people that " slim is beautiful ".
What do you think??

Yes I do agree with you that people are usually obsessed by their weight.They worry that they are overweighted.I don't think being slim is beautiful. What we need is a healthy body. I am slim so sometimes I feel so tired.What do you choice? You look chubby and always feel healthy or you look slim and feel tired?
I am fond of the first one. Generally, being so slim or overfat are not good both. :wink:

Agree with that. Being so obsessed about your weight sounds so superficial to me, but don't care about your weight? C'mon, being overweight is not healthy. Don't do it too much or little is the best. One can care about his/her weight by eating healthy food, but no need to jump on the scale after every single meal. That's sick to me. :roll: Eating healthy food, portional meal, and playing sports are the key to stay slim and healthy. :wink:

I'm agree with you.Well,by my expereance,i know that want to be slim can became to be an obssesion,and i know to much about this :( Now,i'm well,and i think that the truthful beauty is inside,not outside,because the appearance is not the first,and beauty is relative.All we need is a healthy body and felling well with ourselves :wink:

the weight is to be obessed day by day by people all over the world . it is being affected to thier not only the psychological but the physical condition
many serious disease such as the feart disease, brain damage .especially ,the diabetes which has been increasing seriously inrecent years

Whether we like it or not, accept it or not, we live in a very superficial world.

i think it's good to keep fit and prevent getting fat but being on a constant diet and having obssesion about losing weight isn't a wise thing to practise. I don't follow any diet because thank goodness I'm not overweight yet. However even if I did, I'd definitely try leading a much healthier lifystyle like jogging, going to gym, eating low fat content products, stop eating sweets and fast foods. that's what I'd advise everyone who wants to loose some weight.
cheers!

well i guess this is a problem with two totally different sides, i understand when you say that now it seems like some teenagers are completely obsessed with the weight, but many statistics that have been made to portuguese people shown that we are a completely overweight population, and who is the blame? yes of course it is because of the fast food that all the people like to eat in these days, and if you join to this a sedentary life style do you have a great weight result :lol:
