Depends on what's classified as obese....

I think the technical expression is a little faulted IMO. People like 300+ pounds, now that's terrible.

I have no problems with overweight but if we're talking REALLY overweight then there is no way that can be a good thing. Just like there is nothing good about being an anorexic.

I say yes. It is bad for your health. Your heart can't pump efficiently through your body and you have high pressure and cholesterol, etc. It can't be good for your self esteem with all the strange looks and jeers! And humans weren't designed to be that fat.

Now here's a thought to ponder. Your average NFL lineman weighs in exess of 300 pounds. Yet they are some of the greatest athletes in the world. They are healthy as horses with strength and endurance to boot. Are they obese?

obese is to be extremely fat; grossly overweight.

The NFL linemen are a bit obese becuase even thoug most of their weight is muscle, which weighs more that fat, and their bodies can handle the weight well. So they are healthily obese; they maybe strong as an ox, but their still fat.

Sure it's bad. Not healthy. Not good looking in any way.

nope, being obese is not a good thing.
fortunately, with a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can loss weight!
thats the real secret, forget your "miracle diets" or special drink powders, a properly formulated meal plan and exercise is the way to go!
