    "maintain a good weight"? Weight has nothing to do with it!

    OBESITY DOES NOT CAUSE METABOLIC DISEASES BUT RATHER IS A SYMPTOM OF METABOLIC DISEASES! If you don't understand that, then you don't understand the difference between correlation and causation. Obesity is only unhealthy if it is causing joint or back pain, otherwise it is a cosmetic issue.

    Stop lying about obesity, please.
