Not all fat people eat a lot
January 3, 2013 at 11:20 PM

I'm just tallying up what I ate today and it totals about 1100 calories. I honestly have problems meeting my calorie goals because I don't eat a lot.

Do you assume those who are obese eat constantly or mass amounts of food?

    No I don't. I have many friends who are "overweight " and eat normal amounts of calories. Someones weight does not automatically mean they overeat or vice versa

    I ate like I was on a diet constantly and gained 70 pounds. I had undiagnosed hypothyroidism.

    I assume that people who are overweight tend to have poor eating habits in one way or another, because, that is more often than not the case.

    That's why a lot of fat people are fat. They eat too little and their metabolism slows down, making them hold on to extra pounds.

    I've suspected I have a thyroid problem too. I went to the doctor to be tested but all she did was a simple blood test because I'm breastfeeding and she didn't want to do the full panel or whatever it's called. I hear the regular blood test often gives false negatives.

    Quoting wkukid:
