Lose weight now, but not under threats
April 15, 2013
Best fat burner without a gun to your head
Would You lose weight under duress?
Would you lose weight on your own terms?
Or will the incentive to slim down be as a result of a threat?
Why is this relevant?
Well, consider that some time ago I made a post here about some nations considering levyingfat tax on fattening foods.
Denmark actually imposed such a tax- a tax it has since rescinded. This fat tax was to encourage obese people to shed excess pounds-at least that was the argument.

Lose weight or pay more
The nest assault on overweight people was launched by the Airlines.
Earlier in 2013, some airlines had started installing narrower seats in their aircraft-a clever way to monetize obesity without appearing to coerce people to lose weight
Can't fit in a seat?
Then buy 2 seats!
The airlines argue that carrying overweight passengers would result in fewer people-which would cut into their bottom line-since the aircraft has a maximum gross weight it cannot exceed for safety reasons.
Obesity and Profits
You have to sympathize with them-after all, business is in business to make money.

Eat less to lose weight-that's the mantra.
But some overweight people do not eat more than their slim peers. There are several factors-other than over eating- that contribute to obesity, and prevent people from losing weight...
Attack on fat-how to force people to get slim
Now, the next salvo on the fat people was recently launched by Samoa Airlines-as reported in Los Angeles , April 8 2013 edition.
The airline wants to weigh passengers and charge them according to their weight!
If this catches on, other airlines will jump on the bandwagon to cash in.
But will this work, or is this a recipe for going out of business?
Backlash of the fat kind?
What stops overweight people, their friends and relatives from boycotting an airline that implements this wrong headed approach?
Losing weight is hard enough-this puts on another layer of stress.
But Samoa Air Chief Executive, Chris Langton, sees no problem with this approach
I hope his psychic ability is sharp enough.
What is next?
Buses charging passengers according to their weight?
How about taxis charging fat people more?
If people want to lose weight, it will not be because of threats from the airlines.
It will be because they are sick and tired of the consequences of being overweight
Here is how to burn excess fat and it does not require the food police at your door
