-You can go with the First Law of Thermodynamics and say Energy In should be equal to or less than Energy Out and punish those who don't comply

-Gastric surgery for ALL!!!!

-Chop off the fat!

-Excersice or DIE!!!!

-Something else

The first "Lady" looks like a candidate for reductions om the backside.

Good living at taxpayers expense hasn't done her any favors.

Maybe keep people poor would reduce weight?

Relative always says: Ya never see anyone overweight in a prison camp.

Umm...the government has not done anything to cut health care costs now. Why would they do so in the future? They already tried to cut health insurance rates and so far, that's not working real well.

Education of what causes obesity would be a good start. As well as making Home Ec a mandatory class for everyone over the age of 10.
.
Part of making it mandatory. Is due to the growing number of folks who move out of their parent(s)' homes and have pretty much NO knowledge on how to cook beyond throwing a TV dinner or something similar into the microwave. As well as the growing number of both parents holding down outside jobs and no real time to sit down to a homecooked meal.
.
As well not all of those who are overweight are facestuffers aka overeaters. Nor are all of them are living in fast food joints. Some do eat healthy. If you were to ask many who are obese, you would find that many have several reasons from the list below of why they are overweight.

Obesity is caused by being pregnant?

Pregnant isn't caused by eating too much, last time I checked, LOL.

I was talking about the causes of obesity. Pregnancy tends to be one of the causes.
.
Pregnant women are expected to eat more to help support the growth of the unborn. On the average, the pregnant woman needs to gain a extra 25 to 35 lbs plus the birth weight of her unborn. And if the pregnancy is a multiple one, like twins. Then the weight gain is higher and thus much harder to lose.
.
And the weight can be harder to lose once the mother has given birth. Since she also has gotten in the habit of eating more food in order to keep both her and her unborn alive. As well as what time of her life did she become pregnant. The woman in her 20s has a easier time to lose that pregnancy weight than those who are in their 30s and 40s for pregnancy. As well as the more pregnancies, the harder it is as well. Since some are in their late 20s to early 30s for the age of the mom.
.
http://health.howstuffworks.com/wellness/food... You will be advised to gain weight during pregnancy. If you are underweight, you will probably be encouraged to gain approximately 28 to 40 pounds. If your weight is normal, you will ideally gain between 25 and 35 pounds. If you are overweight (weigh more than 35 percent above the ideal body weight), you may be urged to gain between 15 and 25 pounds. If you are pregnant with more than one baby, you will be advised to gain an even greater amount of weight.

That came from the link I posted. Check it out. I didn't add any causes of what can cause obesity in a person.
.
What might cause it in one person, may not do it in another obese person.

How would you cure fat people?

Didn't the Germans have special camps for fat people?

No they did not. They had concentration camps for Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, PoWs
.
http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/concentr... Those arrested and put into “protective custody” included Jews, trade union leaders, Socialists, Communists, Roman Catholics and Protestants. In fact, anyone who deviated from Gleichshaltung could be included.
.
Thing is, both other countries including America also had concentration camps as well during WW2.
.
And actually those types of camps have existed for a lot longer. There is evidence of them during the time American Civil War.

Googled it. And there is no 'camps' in Germany to lose weight. Instead, they have spas and retreats.
.
Since the term 'camp' is too close to what happened in WW2

Who cares what kind of camp it was. Whatever it was it worked. The issue here is fat people and those people in the camps were pretty skinny. I've seen the pictures.

Too many people died needlessly in those war camps. Remember that.
