What's good about being fat? and strength gains?Watch
first off, why is it that suddenly everyone is so against "fat shaming"?
In my books it always will be a horrible thing to be fat. You can exercise, and you can lose weight. Not respecting your health enough to stay fit is terrible. (unless one has legitimate reasons to not exercise - even then, you shouldn't eat like a pig. TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH!)
If society wasnt so accepting then wouldn't people be pushed to get healthier and fitter in general? I have fat friends who I've encouraged to get lean and fit, and you can see them become happier as they get fitter. I just dont get why people accept being "fat".
onto strength gains now for the lifters out there,
I've been noticing that recently after making slow progress I've been having a couple of weeks of miraculous strength gains. Any insights on why this may be the case?
in some exercises i'm able to lift up to 30% heavier (and it's not a case of me just not working hard before, I've worked as hard as possible when working out, but recently my level of workout just...increased)
It's just a nice thing, and I'm interested as to why its happening.

As for the strength - strength gain isn't linear. You might have a week or two of hardly making any gains and then all of a sudden you're making big improvements every workout. If you've been sleeping and eating well, that'll also help.
If you want to get stronger lift heavier/get on a proper program, eat more, sleep more.
Fat shaming works. Tell a human whale to lose weight they're disgusting to look at and it will work after a while.
No-one is condoning being fat - but there's better and more effective ways of getting people to lose weight and improve their health than 'shaming' them into it.
At least that's what I've gathered anyway.
