First off, nobody's blasting you for being underweight -or- for
discussing obesity. Everyone's welcome in every discussion.
Your story didn't really have much to do with you: It was about your
college friend. You said: "With her metabolism, for her to lose weight,
she'd have to work out constantly and not eat for over a month".
Is that an exaggeration or fact? You're claiming it is a fact. I
reject it. I do not accept the possibility that someone could go
without food for over a month and not lose any weight (unless they were
frozen and reanimated, which has yet to be done). That's my right and
I'm sure science & medicine would back me up. If you want to call
rejecting your statement, which you insist is factual, as a lie, than so
be it. And I respect your right to believe otherwise.
As I said, it's hard for me to know where your exaggerations end and
