    I have started going back to the gym though, I have never liked being overweight as was bulky even when underweight due to my frame.

    But the doctors didnt just say normal/low they said cholesterol is low to the point its better than someone who leads a healthy life, they didnt emntion the blood sugar but from my own findings if anything it was on the point where if it was lower it would be dangeous, I also had things like kidney function tests, all good

    I dont think im fine but I dont think I am worse than a skinny person who may has a diet of things like alcohol, energy drinks, smokes etc.

    I am obese but not clincically , the dietician told me what I listed as my diet wasnt the problem it was that I only eat last thing at night and not spread out i.e I will make mince and tatties with a big enough portion for 2 people, eat nothing else all day and eat that.

    Today I ate 2 beef sausages and a sausage roll all day though did microwave a scotch egg and cook 2 chicken burgers but changed my mind but knowing me I will eat them before bed.

    I have a unclear diet thats all so whilst I eat junk in terms of not eating meat and veg every day I dont stuff my face with sweets, energy drinks, kebabs etc its a now and again thing I reserve for when I am having a bad day.

    It's weird because I was thinking this just the other day. In school I used to be among the minority of girls who actually watch what they eat, work out, etc. Sure they want to be thin and have flat bellies, but no one really wants to commit to the effort that comes with it. On the other hand, in the generation before ours, fitness was considered by many people as an important factor in everyday life.

    Nope. Theoretically I could run 5 miles a day and be incredibly fit, but if I burned 4000kcal a day and I ate 5000 a day I could get fat in the process and still be fit as a fiddle.
    Depends to what extent, CV fitness is down to th strength of the heart and lungs and if you're piling on fat your arteries are going to be obstructed and so less blood will be reaching the heart. Excess weight also means your body is having to work harder to get blood and oxygen around the body.

    Or perhaps they don't instantly judge without knowing more? Height/weight etc.

    However, studies have shown that people are less capable of correctly identifying normal and overweight individuals that you would hope. So perhaps our view has become distorted.

    In my experience, young people are much more concerned with healthy living these days than say 5 or 10 years ago. It could partly be responsible for the decreasing numbers of drinkers, smokers, drug-takers etc.

    Though its been 4 years since I was at uni up to that point it was increasing since when I first went to college 14 years ago, when I left home more people were eating sensibly and drinking more in moderation since students werent that well off then, they are technically worse off now but get more loans and overdrafts and more mod cons.

    I knew people at uni 14 years ago, and again 9 years ago going to the gym every day to look good, eating butchers meat, if drug taking was happening it was a circle of friends sharing weed rather than experimenting with various legal highs and whatever else they could get and I noticed more and more bad things in recent years, it used to be "lets go for a PINT" after class i.e singular now its "lets get drunk tonight"

    The difference now is people want to look good to boost their own ego rather than for health benefits.

    I think you're definitely right, people are more concerned with their appearance as opposed to being healthy!

    I certainly agree with the OP.

    Among women, the level of fat on some girls and shocking nutritional beliefs from others astounds me. It's very rare you'll meet a woman who eats a proper healthy diet.

    Men i think are less bad although probably do less exercise and seem to end up worse than women past 40.
