Amazing

That hair was the unhealthy


One’s center is not one’s center, it is the center of the whole. 

And the ego-center is one’s center.

That is the only difference, but that is a vast difference.-

@Vingger Reminds me of that picture someone photo-shopped where they gave him hair!

So sad that millions of American kids have to deal with this.

I didn't think it was that extreme. 

Looks like your average American. Although that might be the real problem.

Fat Leo looks like a scientist who lives on an island. :P

He looks way more healthy, now he is forcing it with religion and plant diet.

It's not healthy to be overweight.

He looks so russian in that picture. To be honest though Leo doesn't look that fat in that picture, it's more like he was a little chubby.

@Hellspeed  Might have something to do with the fact that he's 10+ years younger. But yeah, some people tend to look sickly almost once they start losing weight. A woman I know was fat all the way up to her 50's and when she lost all the weight she looked like she was in her 30's almost. Makes me think that there is something fat people are doing right, like enjoying life maybe.

Surprised no one here is talking on the Fat Leo pic. Don't recognize him at all in the pic. Quite a feat to lose all that weight and keep it off.

Just to be clear, the term 'fat' was Leos description, not mine. I'd never describe anyone as fat. It's a derogatory term.

If you plug the numbers in you get "obese" so absolutely. Very sad that this happens to kids.

He went from Fat Leo to emaciated Leo:

And eventually found a healthy balance in the middle.

What you guys are overlooking is that my natural body shape is very tall and lean. Don't compare me to guys like Joe Rogan who are short, squat, and beefy-looking.

To look buff, I would have to add 60 pounds of muscle onto a 6'2" frame. This is not sustainable or healthy for me.

Remember that people have fundamentally different body types (regardless of fat or muscle). There are endomorphs, mesomorphs, and ectomorphs. (And also xenomorphs ;) ) I was always an ectomorph. An ectomorph who happened to be fat due to poor diet.

Muscles do not scale proportionally if your body goes from 5'8" to 6'2". You will become leaner and it will be much harder for you to look buff at 6'2" than at 5'8". Of course there are some tall endomorphs like The Rock. But that ain't me. If you go to the gym and just observe people there, you'll clearly see who is an ectomorph, mesomoroph, endomorph.

Our culture -- especially bro culture which tries to be macho -- devalues ectomorphs while idolizing mesomorphs and endomorphss. But all of these assignments of value is ego.
