That documentary was disappointing. The guy who was shooting it expressed an enlightened attitude and described a program that I would have loved to see. Something seems to have happened to it on the way to broadcast. I am contemplating someday writing a book which I will title ""How to be Fat."" Some of my books, like Fat Camp Commandos, are about fatness, some have fat characters. Once you get the hang of ignoring the silly stereotypes, mostly derived from advertising, the question of fatness becomes sort of trivial. The next time some doctor abuses you for being fat ask the following questions: 1. Realistically, what are my chances of ceasing to be fat, and 2. Which would confer the greater benefits, exercising more, stopping smoking, eating more veggies, reducing stress, or losing weight?
