Fat is killing us, according to Lorna Jane on 60 Minutes last Sunday.
Australia is one of the fattest countries in the world, says The Biggest Loser. No, Just NO. This is wrong. There is really no excuse for it if, you can’t even use Google to keep perpetuating these myths.
“I know what the stats are,” she said. “Two in three Australians are overweight or obese. I just think it’s not OK that we’re getting fatter and fatter as a nation. Not because of how we look or what dress size we are, but because we’re dying.”

Actually, we’re not. Fat people live longer, according to Professor of Health Sciences Timothy Olds. While a lot of us, including me, are so fat we can’t fit into your $106 palm tree print gym tights, it does not mean we should be coffin shopping.
I am fat, and I am not dying.
Lorna Jane should spend slightly longer researching fatness, if she wants to fight it so badly.
