Honestly, how many vegetables does one have to eat to be that fat? I was under the assumption that vegetarians were skinny-fat individuals with poor health, but never obese . Is sugar ok for vegetarians?
Gatorade has done a great job of convincing us we need something special after physical activity. Sorry, we don't.
And even then, I only need it during the worst of the summer months.

Well, even misguided, I'm sort of glad she's interested in something outside the scope of boys and make-up. I boycotted Coors back in the day (treated their workers like crap) and also grapes (in solidarity with the farmworkers). We all (the paleo and primal we) are trying to get food manufacturers to stop poisoning the food supply.
She's just a kid.

Hmm, where did I said anything that could be interpreted as me invalidating her petition because she is fat??? I just asked a question, granted, off-topic because it is not related to the topic of her petition, but still a legitimate question.
I guess I should have said overweight instead of fat, my bad.
Brominated vegetable oil, or even regular old vegetable oil, is worse than sugar-water by several orders of magnitude. Props to her for calling attention to it.
A quick look at wikipedia shows most of the civilized world has banned BVO except for the U.S. Go figure. Even freaking India banned it.
Also, what's with all the vegetarian hate on a site run by a guy married to a vegetarian? There are real food vegetarians and crap food vegetarians, just like there are low carb paleos and there are Jimmy Moores. Besides, at her age, she's pretty much at the mercy of what her parents are buying, so being overweight shouldn't completely discredit her.

You can certainly get fat as a vegetarian and vegan if you don't eat vegetables. Chips, cookies, processed junk foods, soy meats, all are vegetarian too.
