The individuals who knowingly and deliberately stuff themselves to the point where they are unable to move without aid and develope all sorts of other maladies because of gluttony, are to be pitied (all the foregoing obviously excludes genuine health conditions/diseases for which obesity is an end-product) but they are tying up care-givers and health workers who could be aiding patients without self-induced deterioration.
