it’s common knowledge that being overweight can be bad for your health. a lot of times weight is genetic anyway and if you family if overweight it may be difficult for you to naturally rest at lower weights. that being said, if someone is overweight and not doing anything about it, it’s not because they haven’t realized it’s bad. just going out in public can make overweight people realize their problem. so if that person is aware of what’s wrong with them, and if that persons doctor has told them to lose weight and they are not, there’s a bigger issue than their weight. no healthy person hurts themselves on purpose. so it’s the doctors job to tell the individual what is best for them and it’s up to the individual to make those changes.
