That show is almost equal parts anti-HAES and fat-enabling. On one hand, it shows the true reality of being fat and all the "glamour" of obesity. On the other hand, it also serves to normalise obesity and give every 400lber an excuse to say, "B-b-but there are lardos way bigger than me." I do enjoy the freak show, but it is conflicting because its existence does not help the cause.

"B-b-but there are lardos way bigger than me."

The fact that Hitler existed doesn't excuse murder.

I don't know how one can watch this show and come away with anything but a feeling of horror, dread and sadness. There is no 'uplifting' feeling even in the 'success' cases.

They need to be shipped off to some island where all there is to eat is sand and coconuts. They'd probably still manage to gain weight.

And--the fucking families! They are freak-show big, too. And they think they are normal.

This part bothers me the most. The "stars" of the show are whatever. You can't set any expectations to be disappointed by someone who managed to hit 600lb. But the families are always 400lbs each themselves minimum and they sit there resting their sore knees and feet saying, "(Wheeze) we are concerned (munch) your health (sigh, pant)" as if they aren't about to drop any second themselves. The honestly believe they are thin and healthy because they have this mountain of lard related to them.

Dr. N is the best kind of shitlord, though- the subtle kind.

In one of the earlier episodes, some superfatass was making lame excuses about gaining weight, such as it being water weight. He replied, "That's impossible. To gain that much weight, you'd have to drink 300 gallons of water!" My roommate and I absolutely cracked up when he said that

... Except he's obese. The show would be a thousand times better if they replaced him with someone who wasn't a butterhuffer.

Also another thing I noticed with the female obeasts featured. They never actually have tits, but fat-sacks. Even with all that fat they barely manage anything up top. I guess it's nature's way of telling small breasted women, never become an obeast because you will look really really ridiculous in the chest area.

Small chested fit women - you rock!

My roommate and I marvel at the women who have these massive rolls, guts, and FUPAs, but proportionally tiny breasts. I haven't figured out what causes it. I guess the body decides that it can store only so much fat around the mammaries?

I call it divine justice lol, a massive fat lump with teeny breasts is a hideous body shape.

Oh and another thing about this show. Whenever the obeast(and enablers) are on the trip to Houston, instead of deciding to immediately begin the diet they gorge on fast food until Dr. Now gives them a tongue lashing and THEN they begin. Lazy gluttons. They could have lost 10 lbs on the way, but decided nope can't avoid MUH SUGAHS for an instant.

I hate how these fat fucks continually feed themselves. In fact fetching food is the only time they exert any effort but somehow they act helpless to do anything else.

Kirsten is the worst. A totally useless waste of oxygen. Man the harpoons.

So much time wasted on food. I feel guilty if I spend more than 15min on breakfast or lunch, including prep.

So you must really hate Gordon Ramsay recipes.
