"Fat-Burning Pill" Inches Closer To Reality

Snufu Re:What could possibly go wrong. (153 comments)

You think the obesity epidemic is a fucking character flaw?

Societal flaw. You prove my point by calling it an epidemic. Our biology hasn't changed, our eating habits have.

I stopped eating processed foods and lost 20% of my weight in six months and am now at normal BMI. This wasn't an extreme or fad diet. I simply stopped eating junk and drinking calories, and started eating what evolution has prepared our bodies to eat for the last million years. My body did the rest.

On the other hand if you insist on subjecting your body to something that evolution has not prepared it for, than yes, that is a character flaw.
