There are exceptions to every rule BUT: Fat people have their fork/spoon filled with food as soon as they stuff their mouth with the previous fork/spoon mouthful. Skinny people put their fork/spoon down between bites. Fat people eat faster than thin people. Thin people wear vertical stripes because they like them. Fat people wear vertical stripes because they think it makes them look thinner. Fat people, mainly men, wear their shirts outside of their shorts/trousers thinking they are hiding their fat. Fat people plan everything around food no matter what the event. Thin people wait for the pizza to cool off a bit while fat people burn their tongues. Fat people hide behind someone/something when their picture is being taken. Thin people don't think about their next meal while eating their current meal. Thin people leave some food (even dessert!) on their plate. Fat people don't say "I can't finish this, do you want it?" Thin people's throats lock when they are angry, sad, mad, upset, etc., while the fat person's throat opens wide. Thin people do NOT eat as much as fat people. More fat people take home doggie bags than thin people and will eat the food BEFORE they had planned to eat it--like they thought they would have it the next day for a meal. There are more fat people than thin people at buffets. Fat people will average 4-5 more trips at buffets than thin people and their plates will be piled higher. Thin people don't hide food, fat people do. Fat people will buy more '50%' off sweets the day after a holiday. Fat people will eat while doing something else--watching TV, reading, working, etc.,--than thin people. Thin people will not consume a whole package of something at one sitting, saving some for later, while fat people will eat the whole thing. When eating finger food--chips, popcorn, peanuts, candy, etc.,--they will have another fistful before they have consumed the former fistful. Fat people will be finished eating first in restaurants while thin people will stop eating first at 'in home' dinners. More fat people will 'taste' food from someone else's plate. Fat people will lie about their weight while more thin people will get on a scale in a public place. Thin people eat because they have to. Fat people eat because they want to. Fat people don't need an excuse to eat--they eat because they are happy, sad, in love, not in love, it's snowing, it's not snowing, etc., for whatever reason they can come up with. More fat people wear purple than thin people. More fat people want/need to lose weight but they don't. Most fat people, mainly women, will wear something around or above their neck to try and distract from their body--a scarf, piece of jewelry, a new hairdo, etc.,--while a thin person will because they like it. Fat people will eat even when they are not hungry. Fat people don't say "I'm full. I couldn't eat another bite." Thin people don't have food 'calling' them from the fridge. Thin people won't eat 'bad' pizza. Fat people will eat frozen cakes before they are thawed. At 3 PM in the afternoon you will see fat people taking a food break at fast food places while thin people will just be having a cup of coffee. Care to add any??????? :o)

I'm a fat one and used to be skinny. I enjoy eating and even describe myself as a foodie. I love to eat! We all have to have something to enjoy in life. I enjoy my family and good food. Oh, and this site too. Hehe

Okay that answers a question I just asked you on my last post. :O) I love food but I also love having a one size clothing closet, looking good, not hiding behind someone when my picture is taken, etc. :O)

That seems to be more than enough. Anyway, there are some overweight people who actually eat less than some thin people - and still gain weight because of a metabolism problem. Have you met any of those?

Sorry but you may not see them eat but they eat more than thin people--yes, some, a very few, have a metabolism probelm but a lot say they do! They know people won't ask to see their doctor's report!! About 1-1.5% fat people have a slow metabolism.

Sadly I recognize myself in several items on the list. Purple? I like purple but I didn't think it had anything to do with my weight. I've always worn purple, even when I was skinny.

You did a good job summing it up. I have nothing to add.

You summed it up perfectly. I did think of something else, a fat person will eat a whole plate of fattening food and think they are helping themselves not gain weight by drinking diet coke with the fattening food.
