Anonymous said: Saw your post- I'm a doctor. If you restrict calories, you will lose weight. I have done it, my patients have done it. When the patients that fail to lose weight come in, and we look at what they actually eat vs. what their calorie count says, there's a discrepancy. It's simple thermodynamics. Eat a deficit, your body will burn fat. 1200 cals/day in small, healthy meals, and the weight will fall off safely and healthily. Eating right and exercising aren't compatible with obesity.
If you really are a doctor. You are also an idiot. And a tribute to class structure over merit. Congratulations.
If you “restrict calories”, you are derailing your body’s maintenance of its own integrity. It is designed to defend the pathways that regulate that integrity.
Not my rules, biology’s rules. And I’m pretty sure that is explained by thermodynamics as it sounds like the mechanics of energy to me.
If either of us had a better grasp, we’d be able to explain it to each other. As it is, only one of us knows our limitations on that score.
That is why calorie restriction is not in the main, sustainable over the long term. I’ll repeat for the eleventy millionth time for you. THIS DOESN’T MEANT WEIGHT CANNOT BE REVERSED/ADVANCED EFFICIENTLY.
JUST. NOT. VIA. THAT. ROUTE.
Hope you caught that and can spread that on the hatergrapevine.
I could go on, and on, and on, but basically, being patronizing and using me as a target to project your stupidity and ignorance is not endearing.
P.S. Just in case. Stop using fat people, to hide behind, in order to avoid scrutiny of the way your professional structures and practices are bankrupting healthcare.
if thisisthinprivilege says thin privilege is not being called a whale, then fat privilege is not being called a skelton for six years and being bullied and shamed for being skinny and having your bones stick out and people making rude comments on that and telling you constantly you need to eat more and forcing you to eat
Yep, that’s sounds like being fat. Without the backing of the white coat establishment plus a bogus pseudo-science machine generating hate fodder to keep the bigots fully wound up.
dismantle every expectation of fatness, every expectation of ‘obesity’. for what my body can actually do, for what my body prefers. It’s most easeful movement-not being burdened by ideas of my body as epitomizing physical incompetence.
when I walk, I encourage more ease and flow. I let my attention kind of float and keep my eyes looking ahead more than towards the ground.
I coax, sometimes I charm, but above all, I am patient.
