    It's also quite funny how people will nod along and agree to this stereotype before citing their own bull**** reasons for this being true:

    However when the blame shifts to a group of people who aren't the poor, well...:

    I always thought it would be the other way around.
    Poor people are thin because they can't afford to eat a lot
    Bigger people would be rich because they can buy lots of food which includes junk

    Gym - £20/month
    McDonalds - £5.99/meal. They probably end up spending £60/month.

    If you don't have money you spend what you do have on the food stuffs that contain the highest amount of kcal/£ to ensure you don't go hungry. Unfortunately these foods tend to be high in fat/salt/processed
