You havent dieted till you've done the medieval diet

Chato: I’m gonna do it this time! I call this my Medieval diet! Hand me my mask please.

Caption: You haven’t dieted till you’ve done the medieval diet!


I was reading a report PDF* file about Obesity and Mental Illness. I was not surprised to learn that “obesity is one of the most common physical health care problems among persons with severe and persistent mental illness.”  I’m fat. I’ve known that for a while. However, I just  found out not only am I fat, I’m classed as a “super obese” male or “class III obesity”… Gosh, I always wanted to be super at something, but not BEING FAT!!!

My body mass index (BMI) is above 45 if not over 50 That is super obese!  I’m worried to the point of drastic action needing to happen NOW! That is why I think my medieval diet just might be what works for me.

The report went on to say:

Obesity is a complex multi-factorial chronic disease that develops from the interaction between genotype and the environment. Among individuals with serious mental illnesses, an unhealthy lifestyle, as well as the effects of psychotropic medications, such as second generation antipsychotics, can contribute to the development of this problem. Excess body weight increases the risk for many medical problems, including type 2 diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, osteoarthritis, hypertension, and gallbladder disease.

I have most of that already… I just don’t have the will to diet. I’ve only recently had the will to live again!  For years I wanted to die and attempted it, too.  It’s only now that I feel alive and want to live that I’m so fat that it will kill me.  (Now that is just wicked super!)
