Underweight kids as bad as... Feb. 24th, 2012 @ 01:27 AM Reply

I was just wondering if anyone thinks underweight kids are just as bad as overweight kids.
They're sort of the same.
Fat kids:
Don't do sports
Are unhealthy
Are limited in their activity

Underweight kids:
Don't do sports
Are unhealthy
Are limited in their activity

I, myself, have always been the smallest and lightest person in a group. My eyes always have bags (lack of sleep) and I look like a malnourished mess in general. Very skinny.

But I still keep my hair and clothes nice.

Is this not as bad as a fat fuck?

Also I'm on an iPhone so I can't choose any really cool topic icons. GET ON IT, TOM.

Obesity is a much, much larger problem.

Kids have high metabolisms, so if you don't get very much physical activity then being really skinny is fairly normal, though I agree it doesn't look very good.

Both overweight and underweight are pretty bad, but I think obesity is a larger problem because it leads to bigger difficulties in life.

Oh, I'm 6ft, 50kg.

through your logic people that self inflict are just as bad as people that fight against self infliction
people that drink coffee are as bad as people that drink tea as opposed to water
...
they are just opposite sides of a scale, some are healthy some are not healthy, that is up in the air for the people that are able to judge and understand all sides to call, it needs to be a control group and a bell curve idea

It depends on how bad we're talking here. I really don't think you should generalize skinny people with fat people because they don't all have the same same negative conflicts in life.

Some people can get a bit too skinny or just don't eat enough, but doesn't mean they do limited activity.

IMO you're just better off not being a fatass if you're just too skinny. It's easier creating the fat molecules than depleting them :p


No!

skinny kids suck cuz most of them are either Auschwitz mode or skinnyfat and think they can eat like shit w/o problem because of their "good metabolism". it's even more annoying when some skinny fag thinks he has a legitimate 6pack just because he's so skinny you can see his abs.

however, i think an underweight person could become "healthy" faster than an overweight person, because gaining weight and eating better is easier than having to lose a lot of weight and eat better. underweight people are just weak, fat people are lazy.

I used to be very skinny as a kid, but I did do a fair amount of sports. In fact, I was among the best in sport classes in most sports.

Being obese or fat is worse than being underweight cause of all the other diseases and problems that come with it.

Although mind you anorexia is just as bad as obesity (even worse actually) but anorexia is not as common as obesity.

So yeah. Saying underweight kids are equally as bad as overweight kids is just a pathetic justification made by fat people.

There IS a reason why schools try to get people to be healthy but they don't complain about the dozens and dozens of skinny and underweight people.

They do complain/fight against anorexia but that isn't nearly as common as obesity which so many adults and kids have or will inevitably develop.

Anorexia is such a 90s disease.

I think it's worse to see a skinny malnourished kid than a fat bouncy little kid. It's proper depressing seeing anyone that's obviously skinny, but when you see a really skinny child, you just want to slap the parents. You see a fat kid, you just laugh, it's fine.

In terms of complications with health, both paths, anorexia or obesity, are pretty much a dead end.

eating 5 fruit and veg a day is fucking hard.

Anorexic and underweight are not the same thing guys. Anorexia is one of the most lethal/deadly psychological disorders.

Yeah, I was just giving examples of both extremes, because that's possible for everyone, not just teenage girls.
Plus that's what being fat or malnourished and skinny will do to you, send you down a path of illness, possibly anorexia.

That's no good, if you get too underweight you'll disrupt your menstrual cycle and you'll ever know the joys of motherhood.

Anorexia and obesity aren't opposite extremes of one another. Anorexia is a severe mental health condition whilst obesity is a potentially severe health condition. The opposite of anorexia is Muscle dysmorphia (aka bigorexia).

Plus that's what being fat or malnourished and skinny will do to you, send you down a path of illness, possibly anorexia.

Being underweight doesn't lead to anorexia; pre-occupation with body image does.
