Aren't fat people just lazy?

Answer

One third of young people are overweight or obese, and those young people are 3-10 times more likely to go on to be obese as adults. Body size is regulated by powerful hormones and different people have quite different 'natural' body sizes so we shouldn't judge anyone on their size. We should encourage everyone to be healthy for their size, including diet and exercise.
