I want to tell you about a
very unusual sort of prison. It's called Obesity Prison. Why
is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary. No one sends us to
Obesity Prison, we send ourselves!
What's it like to be a
The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear
regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants.
Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless
uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street
in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled
Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may
walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this
rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After
a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft
that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me,
go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
The main feature of everyday life inside Obesity Prison is
tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies,
so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing
their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the
Even when they allow themselves
a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They
feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people
they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
After many years of locking themselves away inside their Obesity Prison,
many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves
and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people
and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they
are doomed to stay in Obesity Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves
Bad for Health
Obesity Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the
greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And
the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going.
No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Obesity Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners
but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often
grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
So why do so many people end up in Obesity Prison? And even more important,
why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn,
doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes
them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up
their regular mouthful of fat.
