In our society, models are often incredibly thin or at least fit, whether they are men or women.

Moreover, many people are actually obese and while it is the right of people to do whatever they want with their bodies, it's not a secret that being obese poses health problems to the individual that could lead to emotional and mental problems such as having a lower self-esteem and simply feeling tired all the time. Here is the story of an obese man who successfully lost weight and became a happier man.
