We’ve all seen them before on Oprah, Maury Povich, 20/20, your local news, etc.
The unfortunate obese people that are so big they can’t leave the house, or can’t get out of a room, or can’t get out of bed for that matter.
Maybe I’m in the wrong here but couldn’t these people lose weight if they are put on a restricted calorie diet? And even though they may not have the will power to stay on a restricted calorie diet couldn’t the person bringing them their food on a daily basis basically force them into one.
No doubt these people like to eat and eat too much, but once they get to a point of immobility there has to be someone else enabling them to continue with their bad habits.
So, are these individuals stuck in their situations because their caretakers can’t say “no” to them or is it some other circumstance I’m overlooking?
