Fat People Who Are Picky Eaters

I walked into the employee break room today, to find my large and in-charge coworker picking the chicken pieces out of a frozen meal. I asked her if she didn't like chicken, and her response: "does this look like chicken to you?" Granted it did look a little suspect. But my face said,

All my overweight friends suspiciously don't eat much when we dine out and pretend to be grossed out by a lot of "rich" foods.

For the most part, weight is a pretty simple equation: Calories in vs. Calories out

So I just presume they're closet-eaters.

I'd rather eat a ton with company rather than by myself. How sad.

R1 is correct. It's all an act.

by I don't get itreply 210/25/2013

I will give the that I get why they feel self-concious about eating a lot in front of either people, they feel people are judging them and they probably aren't wrong so it is a catch-22.

But yes most obese people I know are like that.

I once worked with a fat girl who never ate at lunch time. this was a tv show where the crew always eats together at the same time. sure enough, one day a coworker looked in the back of her car and found dozens of mcdonalds wrappers hidden under a blanket. one of the other women on the set had pegged her for a "secret eater" months earlier.

by I don't get itreply 510/25/2013

How is someone removing food that looks unappetising or suspect a sign that they are "picky"? It seems a rather basic observation that most people should make before putting something in their mouth.

by I don't get itreply 610/25/2013

Thanks for calling me a human garbage can. How lovely of you.

by I don't get itreply 810/25/2013

They're fat like Tim Tebow.

by I don't get itreply 910/25/2013

The point is, overweight people have dislikes as well when it comes to what they eat.

by I don't get itreply 1010/25/2013

"Why is Datalounge so obsessed with fat people? It's like you in this secret war with fat people, but why? It's like you notice everything they do and say and eat. Who has that much time to focus on what others are doing?"

Seriously.

"Because you can't possibly get fat overeating high quality food."

A lot of high quality food is high in calories.

Man, some people here lack knowledge about food and nutrition. Why is it so weird that a fat woman won't eat chicken? No one likes ALL food - even the fattest people have their likes and dislikes.

by I don't get itreply 1110/25/2013

Why does DL obsess about overweight people? They need someone to look down on. If it's a woman, that's great. If it's an overweight female coworker, hell, trifecta.

by I don't get itreply 1210/25/2013

r11, it was meant to be sarcastic.

by I don't get itreply 1310/25/2013

Normal people who have never had a weight problem don't fixate on fat people nor on the food that other people eat.

The people who obsess over weight and food are ex-fatties.

And I suppose you're one of those projectors who claim its their autocorrect's fault that they are an ignorant slob of a speller. It's other people's fault!

by I don't get itreply 1710/26/2013

I'm not sure what's wrong with R16, other than a reading comprehension issue.

Maybe she's an ex-fattie and can't stand any references to it? I wish she'd join the current fatties in being secretive about her food obsession.

by I don't get itreply 1910/26/2013

Oh wow. I typed/posted my response before I saw hers at R18.

She has much bigger issues than being a food-obsessed ex-fatty.

She needs a team of shrinks, especially a psycho-pharmacologist. An anger-management course wouldn't go amiss either.

by I don't get itreply 2010/26/2013

Okay okay R21, we get it. We WILL buy your memoir of life as a sociopath. We will.

I'm not going to make fat jokes since half of my female friends are plump and the other half make Nicole Ritchie look underfed.

But I do have one friend who fits this thread. She's Melissa McCarthy sized and always "special orders" at Taco Bell or Wendy's. More of this, less of that, add this, leave off that. You'd think she's picky until you look at her. It's all to prove some unknown point.

by I don't get itreply 2710/26/2013

A fat girl in my office always goes on and on about how little she eats.

Yet she she eats cookies at her desk all day long. A co-worker checked the calorie content on the bag of her favorite brand of "fat free raison oatmeal" cookies: 100 calories EACH.

Eat just 7 or 8 of those things and it's the caloric equivalent of a nice lunch.

by I don't get itreply 2810/26/2013

Of course overweight people are picky eaters. They only eat things like ice cream sundaes topped with crumbled potato chips, cheese-whiz and bacon. Duh.

by I don't get itreply 2910/26/2013

[quote]half of my female friends are plump and the other half make Nicole Ritchie look underfed.

Huh? Richie LOOKS underfed.

by I don't get itreply 3010/26/2013

Sounds like it's hard to stay thin in Amerika!

by I don't get itreply 3110/26/2013

[quote]Huh? Richie LOOKS underfed.

Oh dear. Try a little fish, it's brain food.

What R27 is trying to say is that some of her friends are so thin, that they make Richie look heavier by comparison.

by I don't get itreply 3210/26/2013

Of course that's what he was TRYING to say, r32. It's not what he said.

by I don't get itreply 3310/26/2013

OVERFED, then

by I don't get itreply 3410/26/2013

I really shouldn't post before coffee. You're correct, R33.

My apologies.

by I don't get itreply 3510/26/2013

I'll take the double bacon cheeseburger extra cheese, no pickles, Mega Size fries, but low salt, an apple pie and a large diet coke. Please make sure it's diet.

by I don't get itreply 3610/26/2013

They don't want to appear to enjoy food because they think people will judge them.

by I don't get itreply 3710/26/2013

OMG, another gay man beating up on "disgusting" fat people. OP, could you be any more of a stereotype and a bore??!

by I don't get itreply 3810/26/2013

[quote]For the most part, weight is a pretty simple equation: Calories in vs. Calories out

Nope. That's a bunch of bull.

by I don't get itreply 3910/26/2013

Correct R37. And people do judge us.

I stopped eating with other people years ago, when a friend invited me to a BBQ, insisted I enjoy myself, then yelled out, "Did you leave any for the rest of us?" as I was carrying my plate to the picnic table. I had less food on my plate than he did. And it's an embarrassing situation where I didn't know what to do--do I sit down and eat my meal, or just leave?

Fortunately one of the other guests started complaining that the food had too much salt, so after a few bites I chimed in and asked if he left any salt in the box, and pushed my plate away, and left 30 minutes later.

by I don't get itreply 4110/26/2013

I'm a picky eater because food is my life!

by I don't get itreply 4610/26/2013

Anyone remember the old Rader Institute commercial with an anguished mono-toned voiced chick in front of her fridge who exclaims "Don't dey dink I know um Fat?"

I really loved that commercial. So cheesy, yet so real. The beginning of this parody recaptures the essence of that old commercial before it veers off course.

by I don't get itreply 4710/26/2013

And if she lost weight she still wouldn't like the fake chicken. Is she entitled to not like it then, OP?

by I don't get itreply 4810/26/2013

I have a fat friend, they are picky....turn their nose up at an avocado, but would eat a whole package of oreos... In the closet.

by I don't get itreply 5010/26/2013

Neither, R51 it just means you're a liar.

by I don't get itreply 5210/26/2013

[quote]OP is the same one who will cry about gay oppression and then turn right around and bully and trash others. I can't stand these idiots.

Troll-dar shows you're a racist. Who is the idiot here, again?

by I don't get itreply 5410/26/2013

I don't know how anyone can be thin eating a standard American diet.

by I don't get itreply 5610/26/2013

I knew a guy in college who has been obsessed with whether women are fat or not. I've known him for over 30 years and he is still obsessed.

My college roommate always thought he was a closet case. He is definitely an alcoholic.

I would love to understand his obsession.

by I don't get itreply 5810/26/2013

A fat friend of mine died in a grease fire.

She tried to lick the flames.

by I don't get itreply 6010/26/2013

Wow the internet is a dark place. Why are there all these pictures of obese women in their underwear eating cake out there?

by I don't get itreply 6110/26/2013

I am a fat guy and I don't enjoy eating in public. So I should just get it over with and go ahead and kill myself now because my life is not gonna get any better? Is that what you fat obsessed posters want?

by I don't get itreply 6210/26/2013

I know one fat guy (not huge, but at least 30 pounds overweight) who's fully vegan. I would love it if somebody could explain how the fuck a VEGAN can get fat, short of eating nothing but peanut butter and avocados all day. (No, he's not one of the vegan wackos with a host of food allergies, and isn't allergic to nuts.)

by I don't get itreply 6310/26/2013

Being a vegan doesn't stop him from eating a lot of empty carbs/sugar. That is the problem with most people's diet, not the fat.

by I don't get itreply 6510/26/2013

Why is everyone assuming the poster taking pop shots at fat people aren't fat themselves? It's probably a form of self-flagellation.

by I don't get itreply 6610/26/2013

R59, get help for your food issues. Obsessing about what other people eat is pretty pathetic.

by I don't get itreply 6710/26/2013

The only time I hate fat people is when their fat is touching me on an airplane. I'm poor and can't afford to fly first class. They're poor and can't stop eating. My loss.

Otherwise, I feel sorry for them and don't judge them, realizing it's just an addiction that is hard to overcome. But fuck, having to be in direct contact with an obese person on a 5 hours flight is too fucking much. If I was a chick and the fat woman was a dude, the issue would be completely different. Not saying any more.

by I don't get itreply 6810/26/2013

To be fare maybe some of these fatties who eat small amounts or healthy food are trying to lose weight. I'm a bit fat and most of the time I eat very well and in small amounts. I used to be very fat and by changing the way I eat I have lost weight and continue to. It doesn't happen overnight for everybody.

by I don't get itreply 6910/26/2013

I don't have much interest in what other people eat but then I've never had a weight problem.

When there is a morbidly obese person eating a big plate of fattening food at my table, or nearby, I sometimes notice it. It doesn't make me angry at them, I just feel sorry for them.

I imagine that people who have had issues with their own weight can't help noticing and commenting on what everyone else is eating all the time. It's probably difficult to be reminded of what they used to be and could be again so they rage against it.

by I don't get itreply 7010/26/2013

And what she eats is your business how, OP? I forget.

by I don't get itreply 7110/26/2013

[quote]I imagine that people who have had issues with their own weight can't help noticing and commenting on what everyone else is eating all the time. It's probably difficult to be reminded of what they used to be and could be again so they rage against it.

But, as mentioned by others, some people just need someone else to look down upon.

by I don't get itreply 7210/27/2013

I second R12, who the fuck cares about this subject, really?
