"Lazy. There is NO excuse for ANYBODY being that lazy."

Actually, there is. It starts when you get out of shape, and a little over weight. Things just become harder to do, you tire more easily. Then as you gain more wieght, you tire even more, and expend more energy doing it, which of course makes you want to eat more.
As you gain even more wieght, your feet and knee's begin to get painfull, Back problems set in because of your weakening condition.
It gets harder to breathe as the fat around your liver pushes into the duaphram, reducing lung capacity as well as increasing pressure around the heart sack.

Soon you are hardly able to walk up a flight of stairs, or walk a block to the bus stop to go to work.

Next thing you know, you have your first heart attack and end up at home in bed on disability, gaining anbother 100 lbs a year.

It doesn't even take much food. Despite trying to cut down caloric intake, people in that condition continue to gain wieght, even if they are only eating 1200 calories a day, watching their carb intake.

What happens is they trigger tjeir liver into producing sugars to compensate for the lack of carbs they get through diet. This cause the liver to produce blood sugars from the bodys protein stores, not fat unfortunately. The liver when it's working this way, always produces way more than the body needs, which in turn causes the pancreas to work even harder producing insulin to bring those levels down. Too much insulin, causes you to put on even more fat.

It's a difficult situation to get out of. It may sound hard to believe, but dieting just doesn't work for those people (any people for that matter, but 10 times worse for them) What these people are, are basically type 2 diabetics, but don't know it, just like most overweight Americans don't know it. They think that as long as they don't take insulin, they can't be diabetic. WRONG!

The biggest mistake overwieght people make when trying to loose wieght, is cut all the carbs out of their diet. This is a huge mistake. This triggers low blood sugar conditions, which triggers the liver into producing blood sugars from body proteins. This is NOT what you want to have happen. It's what starts the "big belly" look, where the person carries a lot of their fat around the abdomin, and bellies start pouring over belts.

type 2 diabetes requires that you keep your blood sugur levels between 4.0 -7.0 before meals, between 5.0 10.0 2 hours after. This is done by restricting carb intake to about 60-75g per meals, and eating 3 meals a day. Skipping meals is a no no. At the same time, reducing fat intake. Proteins, carbs, and fats are the three main food groups. Protiens and carbs are what you want to eat, managing the carbs to about 65g a meal for the average male, 55-60 for a female.
