‘Biggie size’ ordered in fight against WNC Obesity
ASHEVILLE TUESDAY — After attending a three-day health conference in Washington last month, some Asheville civic leaders now believe that exercise and eating healthy might not be the best answer for reducing the region’s obesity problem.
“People are generally wearing clothes that are several sizes too small, especially overweight people,” said Asheville YMCA spokesperson Alex Hazelwood.
Hazelwood notes that this can cause a lot of psychological problems for those struggling with weight issues.
“They can work out until the cows come home, but nothing takes away those unsightly rolls quite as fast as putting on that XXXL T-shirt instead of an XXL.”
While CDC spokesperson Gerald Limbaugh said it would be easy to blame fast food and lack of exercise, the real problem is with the retail-clothing industry. “Clothing is simply not large enough anymore, and everyone seems to have forgotten the big people,” said Limbaugh.
The Asheville Police Department is also reporting that “fat on fat” crime is up significantly in recent years. Officials say this is partly because more and more obese people are carrying concealed snacks with them on the street.
