It's clear Crusader 4 da truth has already made up his mind. He's not open for debate. But the answer is easily answerable. It just takes soo much typing for someone not willing to change his mind.

Wha'? Maybe you have a different culture where you live, but over hya it's not really accepted to be fat. It's associated, as I understand elsewhere as well, with laziness.
