    If I ate 4,000 calories a day I would probably be around 400 pounds.

    8000 calories sounds a wee bit fudged to me.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    A tape worm inside him? I'm thinking more like three people.

    I think if there were children with that sort of problem, they would make efforts to accommodate them. The prevalence of hyperthyroidism is very small so I doubt that they intend to starve students.

    Do people actually believe people are fat because they eat too much?
    Well, that's how I got fat and I suspect that it's a leading cause.

    I don't believe at all that you have to eat 8000 calories to maintain weight. That is not even close to believable. Unless you are a pro athlete who trains all day perhaps.
    Due to my metabolism your "healthy lunches" would starve me to death...
    I dont think you are a child in school so that point is not really relevant. And if there was a kid who required a special diet of 8000 calories per day (which there is not) the school and parents would work out a special diet just like they do for anyone else who has diet restrictions or needs.

    What do these fools want to do? kill half of their students in an attempt to control the weight of the overeaters - or those that don't understand they have a thyroid problem?

    Yes, the vast majority of people who are overweight are overweight because of diet and exercise.

    Exactly.

    Amazing how much discussion can come from one made up statement. 8,000 calories a day, sure. Maybe he's the result of an experiment involving gene splicing with hummingbirds or something.

    Methinks Mr.Nick is fuzzy on what a "calorie" is.
