A friend on Facebook, who is obese (after having gastric bypass surgery years ago), always has terrible health problems, is constantly hospitalized, whose obese husband has constant health problems and hospitalizations, and who asked me to help her learn paleo and then immediately gave up and went back to making cornbread mac 'n cheese or whatever for every meal, posted this today:
