Jell-O! (rhymes with Hello, so it is considered a greeting)
Anyway, have you guys heard about this new species? They are called Super Morbidly Obese people. Fat isn’t enough. Obese isn’t enough. Morbidly obese isn’t enough. No, these people are SUPER morbidly obese. Tragic.
I watched a movie on this in my health class! The normal reccomended amount of calories for an adult is 2,000 calories a day. Less for little kids, and more for teens because they are growing (adults don’t grow). The movie was called “I Ate 33,000 calories”. 33,000 in one day!!!!!!! That is, like, enough food for EIGHT people right there!
Now, you can’t just call yourself super morbidly obese. There are requirements, like a certain BMI percentage. BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It basically means how much of you is fat. Women have more fat on them because hips are basically fat and breasts are considered fat, too. I, being a gymnast, have a BMI of around 9% (I learned this in gym class – there is a little computer thingy that you enter all this information into and then you hold onto it and it can feel your heartbeat and it tells you you BMI). That means that 9% of my total body mass is fat. Which is really good! Fat is good for you, you need it to live, but too much fat is baaaad! Plain old morbidly obese people have a BMI of 40-50%. Almost have of them is fat!! These super morbidly obese people (lets just call them SMOB from now on) have a BMI of over 50%. They are half fat!! Maybe more!! That is plain ridiculus.
The people on this show are really gross looking. This one woman’s stomach drooped to her knees. This one guy had to wear a diaper-type thing because he was too fat to walk over and go to the bathroom. This other guy had to wear a little oxygen thingy under his nose all the time because his fat is crushing his lungs and making it hard for him to breath and get enough oxygen! It is crazy stuff. In the movie, they showed this clip of firemen trying to get a SMOB person out of their house. The guy had fallen unconcious because of lack of oxygen or something, and they had to get him to a hospital. But, they couldn’t get him out his bedroom door. Or the window. So they had to TAKE APART HIS WALL and use 8 firemen to carry him out on a huge net.
I live in the “thinnest” town in the United states, so I don’t see many super morbidly obese people. awww! Do you guys know any super morbidly obese people? How much can they eat? More than you can in a week, probably 😆
