Fat Acceptance is BS!

I was watching videos on YouTube when I stumbled upon a video by Jason Blaha of Ice Cream Fitness, he was ranting about fat acceptance and I agreed about most of what he was saying. After watching this video I decided to watch other videos about fat acceptance, videos by people who support fat acceptance and those opposed to it. I have to say I did not like what I saw, I had not realized that this fat acceptance thing had become an actual movement. Basically what I saw over and over again are these obese people who had convinced themselves that being fat is healthy, that nothing was wrong with them, that they were normal. Normal is a relative term, and at this rate one could say being overweight is a norm nowadays, but that does not make it right or healthy. Just because there are millions of fat people convincing each other that its okay to be fat, does not make it alright or healthy, its does not make being obese any less unhealthy.

My view on fat acceptance:

On one video I watched you had this woman who was obese and she was a fitness instructor of some sort for other fat people, she made them do basic movements calling them exercise which apparently improved some of  the fat peoples mobility but did not necessarily help them lose weight. What these people failed to understand is that doing easy simple exercises where you hardly break a sweat will not help you lose weight, they were forgetting about the most important part, their nutrition plan and the calories they consume (calorie deficit for weight loss). So long as they continue to eat the same crap food it does not matter how much low intensity basic exercise they do. That exercise group or whatever you call it was nothing more than a support group for fat people in my opinion since the instructor herself was obese and clearly had no idea what she was doing.

fat acceptance is not okay
fat acceptance is not okay, set a good example for your little one’s

I am not promoting skinniness, that is a topic for another post I am promoting health and fitness, I am saying accepting being fat is a step in the wrong direction. Do we want future generations to be fat and unhealthy and have to deal with the diseases related to obesity. I am saying we should not accept being fat because being fat has an easy and a free solution unlike many other diseases (yep some view obesity as a disease) which are costly. People with children who accept being fat are raising their kids with the same attitude, their children will probably also be fat because they picked up bad eating habits at home. I am saying that not setting a good example for your kids is failing them.

don't have time for exercise, you'll soon find time for illness
