Saying that obesity is unhealthy in general is one thing, going up to an obese person and saying it to them is a totally different situation. The addiction example is actually not bad: Would you go up to an alcoholic or smoker and calmly inform them that not being an alcoholic/smoker would be better for them? Do you think that would have a positive impact on their life? Would they hang their head, tell them that this never occured to them before and they are going to stop being an alcoholic now?

That brings us to the second part - how hard is it to lose weight? You say in the first part of your post "Lets assume you're right" and "I don't open up this topic". And then in the end you say twice, with all the confidence in the world that "Of course you can change it." So which is it? Will you not give an opinion on the topic because you aren't sure about the facts? Or do you in fact have an opinion but simply refuse to engage the research that went into the article? You can't have it both ways, either refute the article or actually abstain from voicing an opinion on how hard weight loss is.

But one of the main points of the article is that it's nearly impossible to lose weight and keep it off afterwards, even when the person is determined and has a coach on their side. Unless you have evidence to the contrary - isn't telling fat people that being thin would be better for them then kinda like telling someone with only one kidney left that having two would be better for them?

Trying to keep people from getting obese in the first place is a good idea, sure, but "it's better to lose weight" doesn't help fat people and this kind of "concerned comment" is only a little better than outright bullying when it's about something you can't change.

Everything you know about obesity is wrong

For decades, the medical community has ignored mountains of evidence to wage a cruel and futile war on fat people, poisoning public perception and ruining millions of lives.
