The Consequences of Gaining Weight

We have to appreciate the fact that this guy gained over 90 pounds on purpose to participate in a reality TV show. (Do we have another K-Fed wannabe here?)

It is a bit painful to watch him go from fab to flab in a 6 month period. This type of faking obesity is shameful because it doesn’t compare with a person who has been overweight for years or their whole life. We can bet that the fat didn’t have enough time to reach and build up around his ankles yet.

This trainer (or the possible reality tv show) should be nominated for the Darwin Awards for literally destroying his body and inflicting bodily mutilation through food.

Honestly, Michael Moore is a big guy due to poor or terrible eating habits and nothing more. The spa is at best a short term / temporary solution to a problem that Michael Moore is well aware of. Unless he seriously hires a personal chef (that cooks healthy foods) to feed him the right way, and a trainer to get him being active again, time will catch up to his bad habits and we can expect the worst.

We need Michael Moore to live a long healthy life and continue to make a difference in the world by doing what he does best.

Diseases of the Obese

These diseases are associated with obesity.

  • Diabetes – blood sugar level is not in balance where its levels are too high. Can lead to many complications if left untreated
  • High Blood Pressure – can lead to stroke and heart failure
  • Joint Pain – aches and pains in your bones
  • Back Pain – can be immobilizing if very painful

If you are not looking forward to dealing with these obesity related diseases, then start losing weight. Getting to these later stages is worst then just being obese.
