    this girl at work eats fruits and veggies and really nothing else. shes fat. she isnt really losing weight. why is that the case?
    i mean i NEVER see her eat anything at work and she says she never eats at home. but she is not skinny

    I've noticed a trend wherin fat people eat healthy in public. But mark my words I bet shes stuffing cheeseburgers at home.

    Theres always the possibility of a thyroid problem, but if youre basically starving yourself you should lose weight no matter what.

    actually you usually lose weight if you have undiagnosed diabetes.

    1. Probably has bad genetics
    2. Probably doesnt exercise, just believes that diet alone can make her shed pounds
    3. Eating nothing is probably the worst way to try and loose weight. Frequent smaller meals throughout the day = winner

    Inactivity.

    I guarentee that if she started exercising that she'd lose weight fast

    as it is now her body is in sleep mode so to speak. She's burning muscle and storing what little fat she consumes.

    You got it backwards. Weight in the midsection is a symptom of PCO Syndrome.

    Yeh I'd say lack of exercise and having a slow metabolism is to blame.

    My mum hardly eats that much food yet her BF level is slightly more than ideal. She doesn't exercise much so I know thats gotta be a leading cause.

    her metabolism is dead, people who get really really huge have trouble with even a glass of water putting weight on them.

    I thought it was due to the body going into ketosis and actually breaking down fat stores like mad???

    The amounts of weight that obese people need to loose would be to hard for them to do based on diet alone. Id like you to tell a overweight lady that she needs to loose 150lbs. all from changing her diet and no exercise, i doubt 1 out of a million could do it.

    Which is why this guy is asking why fat people that are on strict diets are still fat, genius.

    disregarding weird cases of thryroid disorders and the like, I think its physically impossible for an individual not to lose weight over a length of time longer than a month.
