Apparently people are fat because we’re just not as spiritually enlightened as thin people. Thanks, NPR! It’s not like I don’t already hear about how unhealthy I am, how gross I am, how undisciplined I am, how unlovable I am, etc. etc. etc. Now I’m out of touch with my own soul.
It’s interesting, in many contexts, how people’s desire and efforts to “help” situations reveal a lot that’s pretty ugly about their feelings about the people in those situations.
