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 
reality begins.
