    `my husband wears the pants`- actually - he doesn`t appear to be wearing anything. if his one goal is to get his life back why the hell does he not stop eating so much?

    There has to be something else going on aside from over eating when people get this big. I just don`t get it.

    How the hell can he "wear the pants" when he can`t even get out of the bed. Stop feeding him so much! You are killing him!

    One of the saddest outcomes of modernization has been the disappearance of the home cook. Most of my generation doesn`t even know cast iron still exists, let alone how to use and take care of it.

    I don`t think it`s possible to consume enough calories to get this big using simple raw ingredients.

    Was it the director`s idea to place him in the most Jabba the Hutt-like position?

    True story: So in grad school, I dated this med student. And she told me how her dissection class received 8 cadavers--one of which was morbidly obese. They drew straws and the losing team of 2 students got the obese corpse. It sucked to be them for two reasons: First, every procedure took three or four times as long to complete because you had so much fat to cut through and the cadaver was so difficult to move. Second, fat goes rancid quickly. Even with the refrigeration, obese corpses start to smell awful pretty quickly, compared with non-obese corpses.

    Fortunately, my friend wasn`t on that team.

    "My husband wears the pants in this relationship!"

    Obviously not literally...

    Addendum: I`d like to add the following to my story below. Even though no one wanted the obese corpse, it was still treated with respect. At the end of the dissection class, the class attended a ceremony where a priest gave a prayer before the cadavers were cremated, which favorably impressed me.

    So please don`t let my story dissuade you from donating your body to medical science. (Although if you`re overweight, you might want to lose a few pounds to make life easier for some future doctor.)

    Honestly though... I`d tell him, "Honey, I am giving you 2500 calories a day. If you want more than that, you can get your ass up off that bed and make it yourself."

    Oh but obesity is a disease so it`s not his fault, right?

    Why are they always naked? I know it must be hard to find a shirt to fit, but can`t they take 5 and sew them together? How about a sheet? Something... please?

    "Honestly though... I`d tell him, "Honey, I am giving you 2500 calories a day. If you want more than that, you can get your ass up off that bed and make it yourself.""

    Unfortunately, people who get like this usually are this fat BECAUSE they have people who help them get there. Once they are bedridden, how else do they continue to get even bigger? Every time I watch one of those shows about huge people there`s an obsessed mother or weak mate helping them shovel it in.

    When do you know you should lose weight?
    If you`re naked and no one can see your junk...there`s your sign.

    Anyone else get the little gray block in the video saying "Ever wonder what exactly causes a beer belly?"
    I couldn`t help but giggle, I`m a bad person ._.
