Based on things Ive read, weve been living in our ancient way of life longer than our modern way of life. During ancient times, food was much more scarce. A fat person at that time = Abundance, wealth, security, survival, and health. But where does someones want to be fat come from? The same things but in reverse? Did people back then ever think, "Only if I was fat someone will desire me", a reverse of what thin is today? Or did some of our ancient ancestors endure a famine hanging on to every little scrap they found? And it burned its way into our DNA. I have a little fat belly and I love looking down and seeing how much it bulges out, how it feels pressing against my shirt, feeling the roundness, and wishing there was more. But no, I must not. Is it the forbiddeness? Or are we just strange?
