Thin is in and always will be. All efforts to show fat people as healthy have basically failed. Fat-acceptance groups and activists have tried for years to encourage the idea that fat is sexy. Heavy models look pretty but they don’t exude the health message. While their message of a positive self-image is good, accepting that philosophy may take years off your life, and the truth is that destiny for that whole idea is failure. Most Americans, whether they are fat or thin are not eating healthy diets, nor are they getting enough exercise. Physically active people are both fitter and thinner than people who do not exercise regularly. There is of course too thin and that is never good but God’s normal design for people is thinner rather than fatter. When you have lost weight, people will ask about it. When you gain weight, they just look at you. You normally won’t hear, “Oh have you gained weight?” Every joint in the body that bears weight was not designed to carry excess weight. Hip and knee replacement is one of the fastest growing areas of surgery. In 1980 there were only about 100,000 knee and hip replacements in the U.S., compared to about one million in 2013. Estimates are for that number to grow fourfold to four million surgeries by 2030. Thin is better on the joints.
