What I never get about these stories is that, once the person can no longer move, it is clear that someone else is feeding him/her. So isnt the first thing to deal with that person?
On another message board, there was a woman who came in talking about her mother bedridden to obesity. I had no reason to doubt her authenticity. After some questions from posters, it became clear that it was a combination of 2 things:
1. Manipulativeness on the bedridden mom's part. There are many people involved in taking care of her and she played them all like a violin. Heck, the *camera crew* on one of these TLC shows got caught sneaking food in to the bedridden person.
2. No excess of love of the bedridden mom's part. She was a nasty, vile, entitled, demanding person, so it was easier to just throw her Oreos than to listen to her all day long.

Now, lets compare that to a say, a big mac,-44g carbs, medium fry-16g carbs, a small coke, 39 g carbs =99g carbs. That’s 35g too much, and will drive your blood sugar up. You pancreas will produce more insulin, which works to reduce blood sugar to a normal level, storing the rest as fat.
s it up further, requiring insulin to get it back down.
