I have asthma and can confirm that a pint of warm butter is far better than an inhaler.

Asthma fag here too, just curious, which medicines cause highly increased appetite?
I've only ever taken Ventolin, Flexotide and Aerius, and I haven't noticed increased appetite (also because I've been taking them my whole life up until a couple of years ago)

i was taking pretty much lung steroids since i was 8 years old (i just got off them this year) and anytime you deal with steroids legal or not, you WILL have an increased appetite, and they use steroids commonly because they have shown that they work

"Increased appetite" doesn't mean being fat. You can still jus eat healthy food, and when you're not doing that, you can exercise.

No i doesn't. People choose what they eat. It could mean "one slice of pizza, and then a bunch of apples until I'm full." Asthmatic or not, I'd be fat if I ate all the wrong food. It's not just a matter of how much you eat, it's what. If you have to eat ALL the pizza, and disregard all other foods, you can't blame your meds. You just lack self control.

having asthma isn't an excuse for anything. asthma meds aren't necessary all the time. when i had asthma (probably still have but not as bad as in the past) i tried not to use my inhaler as often so my lungs get used to breathing without help. also i did and still do a lot of sports and now have more cardio than most people. you really shouldn't whine about having asthma. i don't mean you BeaverBalls, i know you just wanted to educate

yeah im not saying thats it an excuse, i played football for 8 years with asthma and i only had to use my inhaler before i started taking meds for it, but what i am saying is that when you take lung steroids (the asthma medicine that i took) you WILL have an increased appetite and you WILL want to eat more thats just the nature of the beast, now if you act on eating more than you should is completely and entirely your own fault

no.
imagine you eat a certain amount of food, only just enough to keep you from being hungry
then you take meds that change your metabolism, and suddenly you gain weight, and in order to not gain weight, you'd have to eat so little you'd constaintly be hungry.

Sorry but that's BS, it depends what you are eating. I started eating below my calorie needs to loose weight and I was eating all brown rice, bread and wholegrains. It was actually a struggle to feed myself 1500 calories of this filling stuff, I feel plenty full.
Alternatively, 1500 calories is like 5 bags of crisps so if you ate that, sure you would feel starving for that day.

the thing is, your normal diet, which didn't make you gain weight before, suddenly makes you gain weight.

to torture yourself with such horribly untasty and boring food as you did is not a part of the discussion.

The reason that people are fat is because they think that food like that is untasty and boring lol. It just requires knowing how to cook and look after yourself, I'm sure if you ate plain chicken and rice this would be boring but there are so many different ways to prepare the same thing, sauces etc.

belive me when i say, some people actually want to eat normal food.
just because you can do it, doesn't mean anyone can.

i myself am on a strickt diet because of my allergies, but i know plenty of people that couldn't have handled that diet
people are different, people react differently to food
just because you and me are lucky, doesn't mean everyone is.
there have always been people that are fatter than others, the same way that there has always been people that are taller than others, and people with bigger feet

food is the main part of your weight, but belive this: when me and my brother eat the exact same food, and neither of us exrecise at all, he weighs 20kg more than me.
and i'm 7cm taller than him.

Being unlucky with meds or metabolism isn't an excuse to resign yourself to an unhealthy, costly lifestyle that leads ultimately to an early death.

There are exactly 3 terms in the equation when it comes to fat:
Energy In - Energy Expended = Energy Stored
Can't exercise because of some disability? Eat less.
Lower metabolism due to meds or unlucky genes? Eat less, exercise more.

No medication has the ability to synthesise energy, it all has to come through our mouths. It may suck that you have to adjust to the way your body works, but nobody is entitled to cake; it's pure laziness or weak-will that causes people to be fat and I for one think people should stop making excuses and facilitating them.

When they are complaining about being fat and blaming something that they are on is an excuse. Its not deciding at how they live they're lives, but if they're going to complain about something stupid like that when they COULD change it is a bit irking, don't you think?   
Its like a teenager saying, "gawd im failing school because the teachers hate me" but then at home all that said teenager does is play video games and mess around.   
Don't complain about **** and blame things other than yourself when it is your fault.

Obesity is one of the largest drains on healthcare in the world, so it does actually affect everyone.

They don't have to not be lardasses, but when they come up with pathetic excuses as to why they're fat then I'm gonna shoot that **** down. "Ooh well I would be thin but im on meds so ill just eat some more cake." 'It's not your meds, you're just a pig.'

The thing is if you are fat you are unhealthy, there is no way to get around it. Sure some people have it easier, the bottom line is being fat is not good for you. If your metabolic rate is ****** eat food that has very low fat sugar etc, content. Aint no one getting fat if they eat a whole lettuce, you also cant tell me youd still be hungry after that either.

Or you could say, overeating only causes weight gain when someone doesn't exercise enough, or not exercising enough only causes weight gain if your basal metabolism isn't high enough... and so forth.

The point is, there's more than one factor involved in weigh gain, and it can be very difficult to maintain your weight if you're on certain medications.

I'm not saying that someone on corticosteroids can't maintain their weight, they could eat little, and run marathons, but it can be very difficult. Also, people can gain weight if they change nothing else but starting a new med.

America doesn't have a obesity problem because of medicines. So don't get me wrong. I feel the same way. Just in a minority of cases, the person might have a medical problem that can't easily be fixed, and maintaining their weight can be very hard. Rheumatoid arthritis is a good example - on steroids, plus can't exercise much. Unless they are really careful watching their diet, they'll struggle.

However, most people just have crappy diets, and don't exercise much. Next time you're in the grocery store, just count the number of aisles that someone dieting SHOULD just skip. Cookie aisle, pop aisle, chips aisle...

It's ridiculous, and obesity is a serious health condition, not a body style, or "look" or whatever.

Never ending cycle of Fat. Fattie is fat, gets ''depressed''. Doctor prescribes fatty anti-depressants. Fatty was already bad at controlling diet, medicine makes even fatter. Repeat x10. Fattie dies after having all limbs amputated due to diabeetus. Burred, a 200 pound nugget at age 32. Lesson is, kids eat your celery sticks.

Or...
Gains weight - has joint problems from increased weight - limited ability to exercise
Or...
Gains weight - body makes more fat cells - tries to lose weight - fat cells don't have enough fat and signal the body in order to make you hungry - gain weight back
Or...
Gains weight - gets diabetes - loses some toes - hard to exercise

It's best to try and keep your weight down.

When I was a kid, I ran a I think 3k race as a part of our sports day (I'm not sure if you have em in the US, it's a mandatory event of competitions everyone has to participate in, we also have swimming carnival) and I passed out about 10m from the finish line because of asthma.

In saying that, I am freakishly underweight. A lot of people assume it's because I don't eat, or I don't eat enough, but I actually do little excercise and eat ridiculously large meals for someone my size. Metabolism. It's getting to the point that my doc is saying my lack of excercise is making me depressed (I don't feel depressed tbh, but whatever) so she is making me do 2k walks every morning.

Okay first of all you cant be criticizing these pills unless you've taken them yourself to see how much they make you blow up and then see how hard it is to lose or maintain your physical shape. Second the poor girl has asthma so its not like she can put her full potential and energy into exercising. Third and finally i don't see you coming up with some miracle pill that will cure her asthma so she can exercise regularly without the thought of her lungs giving out which is the most important part to any form of exercise.

Uh, a lot of things can cause weight gain actually.
Poor dieting is the biggest factor, such as eating foods that are jampacked with sodium (most cheap foods that people who don't have the affordability to buy fresh food or are simply not knowledgeable in proper cooking which would actually help them make proper foods that are delicious.

If you only chalk it up to "overeating and no exercise", you need to be hit with a few medical textbooks.
I get you're annoyed by the trend of groups of overweight using excuses ranging everywhere from medicine, but nothing annoys me more than misinformation.
