  • Yeah, but empathy for the addicts. It's real hard when the thing you're addicted to is an everyday necessity.

    • ​@Frijo Froisdeern Yes, it's a choice. Always have been. But not all choices are equal. Your choice not to stuff your face (or a diabetic's face) might not be as hard as if I were to choose it.

  • Fat positivity is just as dangerous as "alcoholic" positivity or "crack head" positivity.

    • @Hannah Collier that's not what I, nor anyone else with any sense, has seen. If you keep telling people "they are ok" even if they are dangerously overweight, then it'll just encourage them to, or at least won't deter them from, continuing down that path. Sparing someone's feelings might mean you don't spare their life. It's the same thing with other forms of addiction, and make no mistake it's addiction that can lead to death, which is why I made the comparison. Also, the front cover of magazines saying "this is healthy" when depicting a morbidly obese woman is obviously a dangerous prospect. The worst thing is that it is allowing people who have mental health issues to continue harming themselves with a constant "it's alright". It's like watching someone cut themselves because of their hallucinations, and you not saying anything because you don't have the spine to intervene. You are a bystander and enabler.

    • It’s not fat positivity it’s body positivity , and it’s not about encouraging people to be overweight

  • Two major issues and causes for obesity are often underestimated and sometimes totally ignored: A) Our society generates sad and unhappy people in so many ways. It starts with mobbing in school and goes on in jobs. Families have no value any more. The old are often simply removed from the family. Media have an addicting and negative effect. Loneliness is spreading all over the world and especially in big cities. All this leads to the urge to get some comfort. And the easiest ways are either drugs or food. Simple. B) The food industrie knows this and produces highly addictive food with tons of sugar! Everything that gets you hooked is put into our food. Sugar, salt, fat and msg are the key compounds to get us sluggish. The food is convenient and easy to prepare. Food ads are suggesting happines and comfort. Lemonades are crack in liquid form that you can freely buy in grocerie stores. Yes, fat shaming is a big problem! You are not helping and you are blaming again the victims instead of the perpetrators, because they are many and they are hidden. And fat people have no selfesteem whatsoever to truely speak out for themself.

  • Ricky is like one of those people that find a religion, barely change their life, and then judges everyone elses morals. Hey ricky you where fat 15 minuets ago and you are still kind of doughy AND now you can afford trainers and a perfict diet. So... ya know.

  • Some of the basics are correct. Calories in calories out, makes sense. But it is more complicated than that. A lot of people live in obesogenic environments that promote weight gain. There’s also mental health issues involved. People who experience trauma often gain weight, particularly women who were victims of sexual assault. Body fat acts an armor for some people. It’s not a personal problem where individuals are to blame. It’s a public health issue.

  • A lot of fat people have an emotional eating problem. Somewhere along their development, food became a solution or coping mechanism for uncomfortable emotions or stressful situations. And this habit became cemented over years and years.

    T. PhamT. Pham11 dagen geleden
    • @Tobi Cipher yes I agree. But trying to treat treat fitness by itself is often times treating the symptom not the cause. For example, I was never able to stick with weight loss or fitness bc I had a lot of self loathing and self image issues. Id lose weight, and then gain it back again bc of emotional eating issues. Cycle happened again and again. After working with a meditation coach i was able to resolve a large part of these issues, and on my own I decided to lose and weight. I've dropped 17 lbs and I'm the leanest I've ever been. That's just me though and I know others have much bigger issues. But I've come to see that treating fitness in addition to treating the deep issues has done a lot more than just treating one or the other separately.

      T. PhamT. Pham10 dagen geleden
    • @T. Pham if you've talked to any psychologist or therapist they will tell you everybody comes in saying they have only an emotional or anxiety problem while the problem is seriously deep rooted into something else. Not to mention eating healthier/working out can act as a domino for good habits and seriously change their life for the better.

      Tobi CipherTobi Cipher10 dagen geleden
    • @Tobi Cipher speaking as someone who had an emotional eating problem for over a decade, its just not that simple. Most of these issues are interconnected and complex, and solving them on your own takes an incredible amount of self awareness and a very analytical mindset. Telling someone with deep seared emotional issues to "simply solve their obesity" is like telling a homeless person to "just get a job."

    • @SezarOroo it's not always about what you eat also calorie intake. You can survive on nothing but Donuts out of the Dunkin Donuts dumpster and not be fat as long as you control the calorie intake and work out. Not to mention even if that was the case health should be a high priority. You're basically buying extra years of life if you buy the healthy food.

      Tobi CipherTobi Cipher10 dagen geleden
    • @T J Man, I thought I was laughing before... but now that I read this I got tears going down. Let me see if I got this right: 1. You grand paps who never trained in his life but somehow had a 6 pack is a proof to anything but good genes? 2. Cause the UK got rockets on peoples heads and they didn't have enough food and the government had to ration things up this is a proof to anything in our times? Of course it's the same food etc., no changes made (I'm sorry I'm laughing so hard it's hard for me to even type). Hey maybe by this logic you guys should ask the Germans to start shooting again V2 rockets on your cities? That's the best exercise ever when you're running down for your lives. You don't need any motivational speeches than. You even yourself say that only rich people could buy "buy more food than they needed" - so again maybe the government just made everything it could to make you *not starve* or be *on the minimal caloric diet needed?* I know this cause when Israel was first created, the Government made the same thing here. 3. About what you wrote about parents to small children, since you say probably and I'm actual a parent not in theory and also dated something like 120 women in my life - no you're not right at all. That's not what happens. Sorry but you have no idea what you're talking about. Chasing around your kids isn't the equivalent of some nice gym workout. P.S - could you please bring more WW2 reference? Cause I'm a big history buff and I would love to hear some more funny ideas on why people in the second world war were thin. Here are some ideas for you to take from: A. Jews in concentration camps. B. Soviet poisoners. C. Political enemies of the Nazis and Soviets. D. Troops who got their planes crashed in remote areas and didn't have enough food. Looking forward for that thinking tank of yours.

    • @SezarOroo I'm not joking at all nor making fun. However, Disabilities that cause weight gain are rare. People in wheelchairs for example can and do get exercise. Woman who gain weight through pregnancy can lose the weight it just takes alot of time and besides that's not exactly the same as he's talking about in the video. As for parents with small children they probably get more exercise than anyone. Being a parent is very active. As for old people, my grandad had a 6 pack till he died and never exercised, most old people in the west weren't overweight when I was growing up in the 80s and 90s. During the second world war people in England were the healthiest they had ever been in history because the government put them on a healthy ration and were almost all thin (statistically). Before the war being fat was almost unheard of unless someone was rich and could buy more food than they needed. If issues such as thyroid and various genetic complaints were as common as it's sometimes made out people would have been fat then as well but they weren't.

      T JT J14 dagen geleden
    • ​@T J Yes it is a Western problem. And that's the point is, some people who have less money and can't afford either time or just the healthier materials to stay thin (please come and visit Israel, some nations still claim we are part of the western world). If you're for example a hard working mom that doesn't have the time and need to eat some very very basic food like bread for example you will get probably fat, if you can't afford buying better food or have time to do some walks etc' to burn it off. Plus I see you still kind of tried to avoid what I point out - not all people are healthy and can walk and do physical exercise. Even if I would accept you claim that it's simply cause people don't exercise enough cause they're too lazy or choose not to (and I really really don't) you still didn't mention other reasons like people with health problems like being in a wheelchair. How about people who are too old? Woman who give birth and gain weight during their pregnancy and can't lose it off? People with problems in their thyroids? Parents who can't go around jogging and walking since they have small children? Are ALL OF THESE PEOPLE REALLY TO BE BLAMED? I think he just made a joke, and I'm showing some logic showing that although it sounds funny, this isn't the truth at all.

    • @SezarOroo I'm not suggesting England is the whole world so no need to be funny! Your internet comment makes no sense!! The comedian is English and what I said is true of most of the western world. Easier to order a pizza than cook some veg and fresh meat. Fat tends to be a western problem overwhelmingly due to unnecessary poor diet and inactivity.

  • Ricky knows enough science to know "own free will" is highly contested. Actually, there is no evidence for it. And where I'm from he is considered fat himself. Something he often jokes about. The science is out on BMI: it's hereditary. The royal society just released a video interviewing a foremost scientist of behavioural psychology (4 decades in the field) that addressed BMI and other behaviours. nature vs nurture.

  • 1. The factual bit is how people get fat. I mean it’s not the whole truth and it’s woefully out of context, but he’s not wrong. If he had stopped at that, it would have been perfect. 2. What isn’t a fact is how he said he didn’t judge fat people on any other factor, or assume anything about them. But then he goes on, assuming fat women try harder to keep their men, and that’s why they’re getting their hair and nails done - this is horribly sexist. Judging fat people for not running on the lawn. 3. It is well known that Gervais doesn’t care about making jokes about what he jokes about. That’s his choice. But his jokes on fatness are far from clever because of the hypocrisy from point 2. And because it’s an anti-fat world everywhere. His joke about uncomfortable fat people in his audience....buying two seats shouldn’t be the solution. Designing seats that fit the average person (average size is what is considered plus size acc to stats in the US) in auditoriums and flights should be. But that doesn’t provide profits...so it won’t be done.

    • @Mint Shass ah okay, well then our moral compasses regarding comedy are very different. In my opinion, him saying those things is not offensive at all. We live in a society where peoples feelings become more and more important than freedom of speech, which I find ridiculous. As long as you insult everyone, and don’t single out one group, everything’s fair in my opinion. You also call him a hypocrite, and that’s why I assumed you missed the joke there. He was saying that because it’s funny, not because he’s not realising the hipocracy (don’t know how to spell that, excuse me) of his comment, but because that makes it funny. And regarding those seats... that’s an American problem. Or at least not a European one (especially since Brexit 😉). But that’s a whole other discussion about systemic unhealthy living in those countries, and I don’t know enough about those countries and their food/health habits to judge.

    • @Sjoerd van Velzen Maybe if you read my comment fully, you’d realise I do understand. I have acknowledged that what Gervais says to sound funny is his choice. However, MY moral compass tells me: just because something sounds funny, it doesn’t give one a free pass to say something horribly offensive. It’s the reason we as a society, have grown out of finding racist jokes, sexist jokes etc funny. So, thank you for your reply, and I’d love to hear more from you if you actually have something to say about the points I’ve made rather than point out the obvious fact that he’s a comedian.

      Mint ShassMint Shass16 dagen geleden

  • It's not fat shaming, it's caring about the people you love and fighting against the number one killer in many countries which is cardiovascular disease. Being overweight leads to: stroke, diabetes, heart attacks, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and highly susceptible to flus and colds amongst many other issues. If they weren't depressed to start, they'll eventually become depressed and it's a dark hole from there. I hope anyone who is fat and reading this, accept the truth of your weight and work on your health in order to make your goals and dreams come true. Drop the sugars and all drinks except water to start. Good luck! Also love Ricky's non PC ways, last of a dying breed.

  • Not entirely true. In many cases children are raised by fat child abusers who feed them garbage. The kids are overweight before they have any independence and are deeply entrenched in this pattern of addiction that is extremely difficult to get out of. By the time they’re old enough to make their own food choices it’s an uphill battle to reverse the damage that has been done. In many other cases, people were physically or sexually abused and turn to food as a coping mechanism to deal with the pain.

    • @OKay The example of athletes doesn't help you here. They eat a lot more calories because their training requires them to burn a lot more calories. Obviously weight loss is not as simple as calorie out > calorie in but it works more often than not. Genetics, metabolism and body structure also play a role. But get this, most of the people who are overweight (including myself) got here due to lack of physical activities, eating more, drinking more, sleeping less, etc. I have lost about 20kgs in one year. Went from being a 105kgs to 85kgs(still overweight). And trust me the simplicity works. Proper diet(not starving yourself), proper sleep and a daily sports routine for 1-2 hours.

    • @tɦɛ ɨʀօռɨċ ʍɨsaռtɦʀօքɛ» I obviously understand that losing weight requires you to "burn more calories than you consume" but people like Ricky don't understand that during the growth stage of most obese individuals, they don't eat a lot more than non obese individuals but they do tend to gain a lot more high energy tissue (fat) whereas more athletic individuals tend to gain low energy tissue(lean mass). Most high level professional athletes eat a lot more than morbedely obese individuals (even individuals who weigh twice as less. Eg. Manny Pacquiao)plus obese individuals have low metabolism. It's really hard for an obese individual in their adulthood to lose weight even with a good diet plan.

    • @OKay We have countless records of people who were quite heavy, loosing half their weights making them far less susceptible to health issues, by following the age old scientifically proven idea of weight loss, which is *Burning more calories than you Consume*. Sure, the diet and exercise plans vary depending on one person to another, but the idea when followed through works significantly more times than it has failed. Do you want to explain what your stance is exactly ?

  • Ricky Gervais is a fantastic observationalist. His observational portrayal of other groups is heart rendering. Funny how the intelligence of certain groups is obvious the way Ricky does it. As those who think they are above others, get shown as fools and narcissistic. Brilliant and for te most part absolutely true.

    • @Bugs Bunny I mean it's a comedian's job to point out flaws in different groups of people and make a joke out of it. I've been made fun of before and I laughed along. Maybe we're not projecting, and you're just offended. So offended you're trying to take the moral high ground when in reality you are just trying to cover up your own inadequacies by calling everyone else narcissists.
