1. Being overweight can increase the risk of diabetes.
2. It's bad for physical health.
3. It's bad for your mental health.
4. It also can increase the risk of kidney disease.
5. It makes you weigh more so it takes more energy to walk or run.
6. It reduces life expectancy.

This is why being overweight is bad.

I thank whoever joins this debate.

Vote Pro please.

Thank you

Con

1. Being overweight can't increase risk of diabetes.
2. Fat makes you warmer so it lets you be warmer in the winter.
3. Anyone can change a commment or post on wikipedia so it is almost no use of putting wikipedia on there
4. It isn't bad for your mental health
I await my opponent's rebuttal

I wouldn't mind seeing a debate on whether or not being fat is a choice..

I would start it, but I am to lazy :P

I hear many people claim being fat is genetic (out of their control), while they are going for seconds on their dessert..

As much as I hate fat people, I wish there was a way for me to vote points AWAY from both of you.
