Before I start let me make it clear for the hippies. I am not promoting obesity, I just think that as someone who went from fat to six pack, I have a unique perspective of what it’s like to be on both sides of the fence. Being overweight clearly has a negative impact on your overall health, but socially there are ‘benefits’ from being a fatty.
1. You Build A Great Personality
Think about your fat friends, they are some of the funniest and interesting people you can find right? That’s because when you look like Humpty Dumpty, you have no choice but to work on your personality. Fat men especially are guilty of this as that is the main way they will be able to attract women. Fat man humour is next level because it is their main weapon. When I was fat, I was at my sharpest and wittiest ever. It was like there was a chip in my head that told me what to say at what time.

As soon as I lost the weight and was now much more physically attractive, my personality took a downturn. Know why? because I no longer had to try to be funny or interesting. Women just saw me and wanted to be with me, girls in the nightclub started to approach me instead of the other way around. Other men would just start random conversations with me, seeking my respect and asking for my opinion and cosign on even the smallest matters.
2. Nobody Expects You To Save Them
This is probably the strangest of all. When you are fat, people subconsciously assume you are useless. It sounds bad but I have lived through it so I can testify to it. Just like in the movies, when something goes wrong people look towards the guy who looks fit and in shape to help them. This is a direct result of our history of being hunter-gatherers in the really old days. Men who had broad shoulders, big arms and general ‘manly’ qualities were deemed to be the best mates and were tasked with protecting and providing for the group. As a fat man, nobody asked me to even help lift a pen, all of a sudden I am Mr Handy Man.
3. You Can Find True Love Unconditional Love Easier
This is something that really shocked me once I experienced it. I have always heard attractive women complain about being seen as a piece of meat and not being valued for their mind. I use to dismiss this as false modesty, but it really is a serious issue if you care about respect for your intelligence. When I was fat, I could say for eg, 2 plus equals 4 and people would be like wow you’re smart. After becoming ‘ripped’ I could literally break down Einstein’s Theory Of Relativity and it would go right over people’s heads especially women.
The majority of the conversation I have now is based on how I get my biceps to look like this or how many sit-ups I do to make my abs look like that. At first, I loved it, sex was coming much easier but after a while, you literally start to feel like an object(I can hear you saying stop complaining and be happy). If someone has time for you while you are fat and wants to be with you, that is true love as it certainly isn’t lust.

4. Less Stress And Anxiety About Calories
One of the worst things about being lean is the obsession with calories and macros. You look at the back of everything you eat and check carbs, proteins and fats. You see a cake and you really want it, but then you remember how much it will take to work it off so you walk away from it.
When you are already fat, you don’t deal with these issues. You are like a walking Nike slogan, “Just Do It”. KFC 10 piece meal? just do it, a whole cake? just do it, sugar-packed soda? Just do it. In the long term you are ruining your health and lifespan but in the moment, nothing feels better. #shorttermgratification
5. You Escape The Military Draft
If you look like the Nutty Professor, there is no way they will send you to war
This one is more humour than anything else but it could be a reality. With the way things are looking with North Korea and America, it is not impossible that we might see another major war ignite. This would be the type of war that would be long and bloody, with young men and women being called up for the draft. If you look like the Nutty Professor, there is no way they will send you to war. After all, what are you going to do? eat the North Korean Bullets! You would be safe back in your hometown, while all the super fit and in shape people are sent to die on some foreign battlefield. Who would have known that being fat actually saves lives 🙂
