    According to your link being called fat is the motivation. Their actual obesity is caused by overeating. I thought you said fat people don't eat more than skinny people?

    "Emotional eating" is a supposition of one of the researchers. More likely it is chronic dieting. We know that chronic dieting is rampant among young girls. And we also know that, by far, the most likely result of intentional weight-loss is ... weight gain.

    BTW, why didn't you mention the next very interesting finding on the page ? Get busy ? Friend called ? Jehovah's Witness at the door ?
