is there a point where body fat cannot get any higher becasue muscle is built to support the fat and extra weight?

if there was, there wouldn`t be people over 1000 pounds like there are. I`m talking about people who cant walk anymore so just lay i bed and eat.

the heaviest one was like 1900 pounds..... hes dead now though

they lifted one of those guys out of his house with a crane and put him on the jerry springer show... then the hospital

imagine he was 170 pounds when he was slim.
that means hes 1730 pouds overweight.
i pound of fat resembles 3500 kcals.
so thats 6055000 kcals too many he ate.
lets say he just ate eggs... one egg is 75 kcals,
he ate 80733 eggs too many.
a sandwich would be around 200 kcals right?
30275 sandwiches....

and these are just the numbers of what he ate too much,
add up all the food he would need to maintain the weight he had to that.....

I remember the guy who got lifted out of his house...He was from LI, i thought...can't remember his name....but I wanna say Jesse. I think he went on the Dick Gregory Bahamian Diet or something as well....

as for people getting immensely fat like that....I have a hard time believing they ate themselves ot that weight. There's gotta be more to it then that. any of y'all on those higher figure bulking diets know it's damn hard ot eat that much food. Somethingin their metabolisms had to have gone haywire.

Ya, a lot of people have thyroid problems, eh?

Tryska

one Colorado study had it at something like 20% of the population.....

but i think it goes even further then a thyroid problem. I mean I do believe most humna beings have a max set-point that their weight can get to. But what if these people ar elike those Leptic rats.....some inner switch fails, you know?

I just think something major has to go really really wrong, for your fat cells to accumulate that much fat in them. (i'm talking about over 500lbs). it can't really just be sloth and greed, you know?

Obviously they had mental problems,not thyroid problems.If they had thyroid problems then they sould have been on medication(t3).

i still don't think it's that cut and dry Wiz.....I mean, you have to have a lot of damn determination and will to fill yourself so full of food everyday, that you can never ever leave your house again.

Well,I understand.. but as you said,why someone would like to eat like a pig all day long while he's aware of the results? Appart from any health problem,it's a big,big mental problem.It's like killing yourself with your own hands!... :shoot: :eek:

I've seen some of these very heavy, bedridden people on tv talk shows and they listed their daily food intake and activities. The amount of food was ridiculous and they just sat around all day! Do that for 10 years and you too can be huge.

I'm not saying that there aren't people out there with legit medical problems, but a lot of these people do it to themselves.

That really was his uncle. Uncle Jack from Anderson, Indiana.... or, "the guy who got lifted out of his house on Jerry Springer". One of the nicest people I have ever met in my life! I love him.
