Obesity: Just A Description Or An Insulting Term?

Filed under: Publications — @ September 28, 2007

You don’t even want to know all the rather “interesting” (and that’s a nice way of putting it) e-mails I receive from people about the things I write about here at my blog. While the overwhelming responses come from the mostly intelligent, insightful, and supportive members of my readership, sometimes you just have to put up with somebody who either has an ax to grind or is “out there.”

In Episode 90 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” I share with you an e-mail that fits BOTH of those descriptions. The reader was responding to this blog post about the definition of the word “obese” and how technically I am still an obese man according to BMI standards. Read that post first so you can get the context of today’s podcast.

Can you say one fry short of a Happy Meal with this guy who e-mailed me? It’s incredible how people can write something like that to a complete stranger and not even think twice about it. And then to try to insult me by calling me all those names, you can’t help but laugh and shake your head at human nature. It keeps things interesting, that’s for sure!

What do you think about this lunatic…er, I mean, reader who had some rather peculiar comments about obesity in modern times? Does he have a point or is he simply all wet? Let’s see what YOU think and tell me what your reaction to him is!
