    This campaign against people who are NOT superskinny is getting ridiculous. If i knew how to make a poll i would but either way, i felt totally disgusted at the daily mail using that photo, to describe obesity, of the young girl. Clearly she just has hips that she is trying to squeeze into a small dress but at least she has confidence to show off a bit of flesh.

    Would they be saying she was fat if she had big boobs? NO! (not that we can see anyway)

    Please join me in this campaign to say no to super-skinny!

    Muffin tops: But eating less and exercising more may have no impact on people putting on weight

    LOL. "may" = 1 study shows it is therefore I'll highlight it to back up my point, even though I know it's a load of ********.

    Ah yes exercise, the thing that uses energy, what fat is stored to be used for, there is no chance that could help you lose fat.

    #that was actually a good article for once

    and notice she has excess fat right around her hips what does that indicate - really bad insulin tolerance.

    it was more about "eat less carbs" carbs are the enemy not fat

    Eh, she's a little chubby. Mostly, though, she's just so poorly dressed that I can't decide whether I should laugh or cry.

    She is actually probably a bit overweight. You are right in saying that she isn't obese, but perfect size she is not.

    In the meantime, whilst everyone is against superskinny, the amount of money that goes into healthcare that is spent on weight related problems is enormous, and tbh a lot more people get health complications from obesity than they do from problems such as anorexia/bulimia.

    Don't slate me, I'm not for people having a skewed vision of themselves and having ridiculously low self esteem, I support people having a healthy outlook on their weight, which not only includes not being underweight but also not being overweight either.

    I agree, I think it's just the clothes that she's chosen that make her look a bit chubby

    To the Daily Mail, all women are fat.

    Except Nigella Lawson, whom they idolise to make them feel better about themselves :teehee:
