Countering Charge of Irresponsibility in Obese People

you don't remove the armor unless you have an alternative coping system I found a "Called Out" comment on Forbes Magazine attacking obese people outrageous.  I address it here.

Meghan Casserly has a wonderful article, "Eating Disorders and the Executive Woman," running in Forbes Magazine.
