Obesity not their fault

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Bollocks. If you're getting fat then eat less and do more phys. It's not rocket science.

    No-one is at fault nowadays are they?

    Sorry, just getting sick of the 'blameless' culture combined with 'rights'. I thought having rights meant taking responsibility for your actions?
  2. Top hole>bottom hole

    Simple really, but they all try to blame their glands.
    Why, do your glands stop you jogging?
  3. My sentiments exactly.

    If your energy input exceeds your energy output, you gonna get FCUKING FAT!!! Simple as.

    Fatties, lazy mickey dees munching morons. Except me, when I'm old and fat then its a disease. :D
  5. More socialist claptrap to justify increased taxation on food and drink, and to allow further interfearence of the State into our personal lives.

    Fat people are mostly lazy cúnts with no self discipline or willpower. Others make a "lifestyle choice" to become fat wánkers: they like eating, but hate running.

    I used to be fit. I rock-climbed to E2 6a grade, passed P Coy, tabbed up mountains and spent several seasons in the Alps skiing and ice climbing to Grade 4.

    Then I left the Army. I got a sedentary job. I stopped running in the mornings and at lunchtime (knees are fcuked anyway). I didn't stop eating 3 course meals or drinking booze.

    Result: I went from 85kgs to 108kgs. Clinically obese and not a pretty sight.

    I am currently on a diet and am going swimming 4 times a week and taking my Rhodesian ridgeback for a 2 hour walk in the hills every day after work.

    Rusult: I am now under 100kgs and will continue until I am back to 85kgs.

    It isn't difficult. People who want to be slim/not fat simply need to decide what they want to be. For several years I didn't care that I was a fat cúnt. Now I want to be slim and fit again, so I am doing it.

    As H_H and Pyrex stated: if calories in exceed that burnt off, you put weight on. I have always been honest about why I was a bloater: I liked food and drink too much.

    Anyone who claims "it is my glands" just needs a fúcking good slap.
  6. As Denis Leary said: "I wake up in the morning and I can't see my c*ck, I stop eating".
  7. BMI is a complete farce I need to be between 65 and 75 kgs to be in the right healthy bracket!

    I was about twelve, last time I was even near those numbers

    I'm not fat, just too short. For my weight I need to be 8' 17".
  9. Haha. Atleast the economy won't suffer in the supermarket department, but when we feel obliged to care for those cess pits, then WE seem to be inflicted. I think they should bring back national service. :)
  10. Well, I'm not built in proportion either, but that's an entirely different discussion!! :wink:

    I should be about 9' tall
  11. As is often said.

    How many the England Rugby team could be diagnosed on saturday, as clinically obese by that stupid index, as they run out on to the pitch at the stade de France?
  12. Overwieght people can loose weight
    Obnoxious gob shites will always be gob shites.....

    Dont make assumptions until you know the full facts......
  13. I suppose that's true.. I can eat for England and not put on noticable weight. Maybe cause i'm lanky and have a high metabolism :D Love it.. so I guess I can't really comment, it's just the smelly ones that don't wash that annoy me.
  14. Possible business opportunity for ex squaddies ?

    Get a load of overweight walts, feed em compo, beast them over the Brecons for 2 weeks and charge 1,999 quid for it......... :twisted:
  15. Thats true but there are also skinny, short, tall smelly people. Jeremy Kyle/Trisha make their money off them.....

    Some NHS Drs offer discounted membership to local gyms to help peopleand personally when help is available then if people turn it down then yes they should be 'encouraged' but for people who do all they can to maintain/lower their weight and increase their fitness then they should be encouraged and supported not pilloried by society.....
