We now know that your weight is not a health risk. Smoking, eating shit food, inactivity: those are the health risks.
Lots of thin people are inactive, crap eating smokers.
They're are extremely unhealthy thin people.
We know this. We have the data. We have to stop judging people's health by looking at them. It doesn't work.
There's nothing wetting with being thin.
The problem is sedentary lives. So many jobs keep us still. Exercise is expensive and hard to find time for.
The availability and affordability of healthy food. Shit food is plentiful and cheap.
However, it's not just a matter of shitty doctors.
Fatphobia and the belief that fat=unhealthy is baked deep into our society. We have to change that.
It will be about as easy as getting rid of racism.
We'd eliminate food deserts. Provide free childcare. Subsidise mental health support.
Instead of wasting billions on policing fat.
Nope. That's about fat distribution.
There are folks in the underweight and normal weight BMI categories with pot bellies.
The size and density of your bones
How much muscle you have--muscle weighs more than fat
The density of your breast tissue.
There are many, many reasons BMI is hooey.
For many in the USA, covering rent & food etc means holding down multiple jobs. They literally don't have time for exercise.
Many people can't go for walks because they don't have time & live in neighbourhoods without sidewalks.
No sidewalks and barely a shoulder. Cars go zooming by and you just pray they don't hit you.
So, no, that walk you're going on is not actually cheap.
