Why do obese people flatulate so much?
September 17, 2014 6:35PM
Obese people have been shown to be more flatulent than people of a normal weight. The reasons for this are that obese people are usually less active and that there is typically more food in the body being digested.

Do obese people burn more calories than fit people exercising?
No. obese people have a lot more fat on them than people that are working out. So if you're working out and you're fit then you are going to lose more and look a lot skinnier than the obese person... and the obese person needs to work a lot harder then the person who's fit because they have a lot more to burn off. Alternative answer: By the fact that an obese person weighs more, and has a larger body to support, it is a logical assumption to make that an obese person 'needs' more calories to maintain the same weight. However, the amount of muscle mass a person has will also dictate how much energy is used, and this may vary substantially between obese people.

Why are some Americans very obese?
Many Americans now a days do not get enough exercise and do not eat healthy, resulting in obesity. However, just because a person is obese does not mean they are of extreme fatness or unhealthiness. There is a flaw in the BMI system, muscular people, when positioned right, are considered obese, and even tall people who are of a little overweightness are considered obese. So of the 30% of Americans that are obese, about 5-10% of the people fall into the flaw category, meaning really about 20-25% of Americans are obese due to fat.

What do obese people lack?
Personally; I think that obese people lack the amount of exercise however many people who are obese have a problem (arthritis) for example; this could be in their legs/ feet or anywhere else, this causes them to not be able to walk and so they can't get about. Another thing is they can sometimes overeat people call it 'comfort food' people usually turn to this like some people turn to alcohol or drugs, maybe if they have received some bad news, or they are going through a bad divorce. Also; some people are obese because they may lack self asteem and not want to do much or go anywhere; this could be because they are singled out, or simply aren't very sociable.
