Peter Attia: Is the obesity crisis hiding a bigger problem?

Could the precursors to diabetes cause obesity, and not the other way around?

I am guilty of judging people based on their weight.  It’s incredibly daunting for me as I’m not a very empathetic person, to wrap my head about it.  I think a lot about it recently because it upsets me to think about my parents and their health and the choices they make concerning food.   I truly believe that your health is primarily based on the food you eat and it’s a choice you make.   As difficult as it is to control, it’s equally difficult to remain diligent too.  I get judged all the time.  When I say that I am watching my diet, I get haters looking at my small, petite frame questioning why I am.   I am thin because I work hard at it.  I fucking love bagels and croissants and ice creaming.  Yes ice creaming is the best activity ever!  But like everything else you cant do it everyday, especially 3x a day.  i feel bad if i am offending people.  i get offended when im hated on if i dont eat that cheesecake or cupcake.  i much prefer pies and pastries and pasta and rice, then i get my ass to zumba to work it off.  i eat my spinach and i drink my water and i lay off drugs and i try to limit alcohol and cigs to a handful a year.  It’s a hard fucking balance so lay off me and i’ll lay off you.  let’s fight this fight together.  i totally meant to talk about starting an organic, small farm movement but i completely went off course.  im tired and hungry. im going to take my fish oil pill and go to sleep now. good night.
