Disagree.

  1. Don't bully people for their looks, it's not just "not ideal", it's not necessary. The alternative to bullying people for their looks is not "encouraging poor health".

  2. I know people personally that have conditions in their life where they have enough money to eat healthy, but due to other problems, they have excess fat. You're still assuming that they're over-indulging. That's some harmful shit right there.

^ This! It is a huge assumption to say all obese people are just gluttons with no self control. This is far from the truth and is just mass generalization. Truth is, you can't know unless you know the individual. Even then, some will likely not tell you if they have a health issue that is a factor in their weight because it's a private matter.

I agree that we need to help in any way we can to spread good dietary principles, IF asked, but assuming others just don't care about their health is just lazy thinking.
