We are told obesity is on the rise - globally. But if you think about it, how often do you see an obese chief executive, or tech entrepreneur, or politician even? Especially a female one. Perhaps the reason is because society discriminates against fat people.

You don't see fat CEOs etc because the same drive that helps them become CEOs gets their asses off the couch and in the gym, and their big paychecks ensure they can eat real food and not junk.

I disagree with that premise.

I do see fat CEOs. Quite frequently.

Entrepreneurs not so much, but they are usually younger and have not gotten obese yet.

No fat politicians? Wow, take off the blinders.

Interesting that Michael Moore and Roger Ailes have at least one thing in common. :)

You know why 2 fat people don't sit together?? Because there's hardly room for one.

Joke read by Fred Willard on Norm MacDonald's show:

"You're mama's so fat, she has Type 2 Diabetes AND congestive heart failure! SNAP!"

It's not just obesity. Americans (perhaps not exclusively) are fixated on attractiveness and, to a lesser extent (limited mostly to women's rating of men), height.

I guess it just helps to be ugly then. I wish there was a health spa and gym where we could all hook up....

I buy into all of those stereotypes. Fit is better.
