I think in the tags it says 'fat boy' or something? Would that change your opinion on how the parents handle their childs obesity?

That's something I'll never get about our culture. How has everyone forgotten what fat's for? It's stored calories. As long as someone can be assed to take a nutritional supplement they should be fine living off it. Gross as it is, reddit's fasting subreddit stands as pretty solid evidence there. Every pound of fat is roughly 3500 calories of stored food. Even someone in the lower healthy bmi has enough to live on for a while if need be. And an obese person can keep up with it for an insane amount of time.

Fit people can still have up to 100,000 calories worth of fat saved, fasting is totally normal and an expected part of our biology.

The discomfort of being hungry is supposed to be motivation to get off your ass and hunt or forage but modern life has made getting food too easy.

Exactly. I'm a big proponent of fasting which is why reddit's fasting subreddit being 100% about weight loss bugs me so much. I've been jogging well into pretty extended fasts. Meanwhile people insist that it's impossible to even walk a straight line if you miss one single meal a day.

It's just insane. As you say, our hunter gatherer ancestors weren't breaking out a table and silverware to eat three meals a day every day. We'd be extinct if our species couldn't be very active while lacking in food.

Apparently this is a male mayo. Who knows though.

She just can't handle a sense of structure, right? She also might be exaggerating on what she has to eat, instead of needs to.

What a price to pay for having good parents who put their feet down instead of coddling her.
