I don't know if I'm right but it seems to me that the biggest number of fat people is in the US...maybe I get that impression because all of the american fast food

I know you were being serious, and I was thinking of a certain group of people. But never mind... I never saw this article, so I didn't know you were talking about it. I thought you were talking about the group of people I was thinking. :wink:

You write the same, what I wanted. It's not really healthy to be fat and too thin. :shock:
You will get a lot of disease, if you have this "lifestyle".

When I was in the US, I thought: "OMG, I've never seen so many obese people together in one place!". I was surprised, I knew there were many fat people in the States but what I saw astonished me.

When I saw Europeans at the festival fair we had last year, I was surprised, too. They were too skinny, and each of them carried a big backpack. I was scared those backpacks would break their bones. My bf said, "Yeah, that's just a regular European girl for you. Skinny as a stick but yummy..." Okay, I think I should end here. :lol:

Maybe this is why models are mostly from European countries, not America. :?

When someone is fat because of some conditions, for example, like Ana has, I can understand it. However, when someone is being able to lose weight and that person considers not to, I think it's unhealthy. Have you ever walked into an all-you-can-eat buffet with full of fat people? I mean, if you know you're fat, why don't you try some healthy food to stay in shape and get off the porkchops for a chance?
