My 600 Pound Life on TLC (Page 1 of 2)

Anyone ever watch it? I binge it every now and then. The one that’s on now the woman is 800 pounds. How does someone even get that big? She is still mobile so when she moves around she is pretty much moving a mass of weight most of couldn’t do. I’m overweight at 260. Been this weight for years. Don’t gain more than a pound or two even when I may over eat. I may eat two fast food sandwiches and be pretty stuffed. How do you take in so many calories that your weight balloons to close to a half ton?

You can make someone lose weight but none of those docs and western medicine and the families want to do what’s necessary

It’s a guilty pleasure of mine.

To answer your question I watched one of those fat bastards eat 2 whole pizzas, wings, bread sticks, brownies from one of the pizza chains.

There are some really cool success stories from that show, they are nice to see.

For the most part it's fat fucks with zero self-control that blame everyone but themselves.  People gaining weight when the doctor wants them to lose 30 lbs then swearing they were going by his diet.
The people enabling them are just as bad.

The one that’s on she had a food delivery. Looked like 5 burritos or so and 4-5 fast food sandwiches. Even when I was young and in good shape I couldn’t have eaten half of that in one sitting.

Well you’ve seen the show so surely you know how they got to where they are.

Genetics, plus a tragic upbringing, plus an eating disorder.

Ya know, 5 Big Macs, 5 large fries, 5 liters of coke will do that.

I have watched it a few times while flipping around the channels.

I think it's sort of depressing in my humble opinion, however it can make you feel better about yourself - at least in regard to the fact that you don't weigh 600 lbs.

This was pretty much it for me, had a pretty much shit childhood and sought comfort in food. At my heaviest I was 502 lbs, I made a choice in may/June 2021 not to be a fat fuck anymore. Today I weigh 227,I’ll never go back. I wasted so much time being that way.

I had a co-worker that was about 5-600 pounds. He had been a hard-core alcoholic for years and then sobered up. His body still craved sugar so he fed it shit food and soda.

He was a cool guy, and we were friends for over a decade. He had been in the Navy out of high school and from the pictures I saw he was in great shape. He described it as the best time in his life. He came from a dysfunctional family and had terrible luck with family his entire life. He had diabetes of course and managed it poorly. He died at age 62.

Yup. Someone is supplying the tens of thousands of calories it takes to sustain that mass.

It's takes lots of $$$$ to feed those fat fuckers.

For a lot of those people I wonder how they afford all of that takeout. I see them eating the equivalent of like 6-8 orders a day. That can't be cheap.

I have watched it.  One one episode they tracked the daily caloric intake of the patient.  The woman was eating over 15,000 calories a day.  Part of he caloric intake was just to provide energy to the extra tissue mass.  She was obviously consuming way more that she should.  

The doctor wanted her to lose 100 pounds before surgery just so she could demonstrate the mental resolve to quit eating so damned much after the surgery.  She did it, and was losing over 10 pounds a week on her new diet.  She would always moan about how hungry she was.  She had the surgery, lost a bunch, started cheating and ballooned right back up again.

Some of those morbidly obese people are just mentally broken.

My wife was a nutritionist and worked at a clinic, the old "I just can't lose weight " thing.
She would ask what they had for lunch and it would be something like a Family bucket of KFC, a Marie Calendar pie and a tub of ice cream.
As my buddy used to say, "It's a glandular problem, mouth gland".

There is a female at work like that.  She has to be 500# or more.   Face tatted up and piercings everywhere while she looks like a enormous pear with tiny limbs poking out.  You would think the minute they can't wipe their own ass they might do something about it.

Mental disorder. Those people need to get their brains fixed before anyone wastes time and money on surgery.

Had a fat workmate a long time ago who had the gastric bypass procedure done and was looking almost human within a few months. Couldn’t shovel it into his maw the way he used to.

Last time I saw him, about 2 years later, he was almost as fat as he’d been. He had adjusted to eating constantly, all damn day. Very sad. I suppose he’s dead by now.

They consume massive amounts of calories and think nothing of it. They think everyone eats like them but don't get when they see someone eating at McDonald's or something it's one meal not one of ten 2000 calorie snacks they have that day. Or they do get it and just lie to themselves and everyone else that they're normal.

They have kept track of fat people like that and their eating habits are just insane. 20,000-30,000 calories a day insane.

Overall it's more of a symptom than the problem. Like drugs people focus on impacts to them rather than the real issues. They're trying to eat themselves to death and expand the hell out of their stomachs doing it.

You'd think at some point after decades of Americans growing ever fatter we'd try something else. Maybe and this is crazy go back to eating like when people were still skinny.

Truck drivers have had pretty much the same life they've always had we just forced them to eat ever "healthier". Replacing natural animal fats with oils and shit is completely unnatural and Americans even more sedentary ones started gaining massive amounts of weight when it happened. Humans have only had a few decades to get used to our modern diets extremely high in plant based oils and fats.

No one should be able to eat a 2000 calorie Big Mac meal and still be hungry. You eat the same amount of calories from a normal burger and fries fried in fat and you'd be shocked at just how different you would feel. The only difference is they engineered the Big Mac meal to have as much plant based oil and other crap in there as possible because they know it increases their sales.
