    The obesity asylum

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    A thought experiment! Letís say we took one hundred morbidly obese persons, in the 400 lbs. + category and put them in a closed camp or asylum and let them do a modified fast of around 5 -700 calories per day for one whole year. No obligatory physical activities. Outside the camp we put armed guards to control that no illegal food will be smuggled into the camp! What would the output be after one year? how many would lose their weight, stop using their medications etc., or even get serious ill, eventually die due to complications of too little food? We know that at least one obese person has completed a water fast for one whole year, so why should not a very fat person survive one year on letís say 3 daily cans of tuna in water, all the raw fibrous green vegetables he could eat, one cube of chicken broth, one multivitamin pill and a tablespoon of fish-oil and plenty of water, coffee and tea? After all, morbidly obese people carry so much food with them stored in their own bodyfat right?

    and after their year of forced fasting, roughly 2/3 would go wild and eat til they were sick then hoard food and gain all the weight back

    You would scar them mentally for life. It's been done before, just not with fat people.

    the guns are a nice touch though, make the environment nice and serene which is conducive to happy weight loss

    Wow, you might have a winning reality show concept there, since people must be getting inured to the level of abuse on the Biggest Loser by now. Nothing like showing those fatties who's boss by rounding them up in prison camps and forcing them to starve into thinness at gunpoint.

    I suppose the black marked price of salami would surpass the price of gold inside the camp!!

    Ohmigosh, I think I'd assault one the guards and kill myself with his rifle within a very short amount of time in a life like that!

    Probably not! But let's say that my family signed a declaration that I could not longer take care of myself, and that I would eat myself to death if not going to the obesity asylum! Let's say the whole issue is in the future some hundred years from now, with laws to save morbide obese persons from destroying themselves...
