Why are doctors and nurses so overweight ?

The doctors that are supposed to know how to be healthy and prevent disease are in reality unhealthy and overweight. They have salad, but they are eating hot dogs and pizza from the fast food restaurants inside the hospital.

because they have personal freedoms the same way you do. why are so many patients overweight? I've seen patients weigh 4 hundred pounds nearly falling on and killing a staff member.

[@25801,DeluxedEdition] They are made for comfort. Most the Docs and Nurses, wear them here. I love mine. For a man, it’s a clog that doesn’t look feminine.

Just avoid sketchers. I do not know why but those things smell like death or raw sewage after even a few wear.

Not that used shoes smell good but sketchers are BAD.

[@400392,Oster1] i'll have to try it. no wonder everyone wears them heheh

Highly stressful jobs. Eating as they can and with limited time. Poor sleeping schedules. Lack of adequate exercise.

It isn’t just about what they eat.

[@6912,Pinkstarburst] this has to be the most accurate answer

I understand this though it isn't true for all of us. I'm a healthy weight.

Salad is a high effort food. It requires a lot more attention than a burger.

Clinical staff are people too. It's hard to eat a salad when your day is already draining you. You need something that feels like a hug. The stress also has negative effects.

[@85866,Doomflower] not to mention night shift people tend to be overweight because the metabolism showing down at night
Doomflower · 36-40, F
[@25801,DeluxedEdition] YES!!! It is SO unhealthy to work at night even for night owls. The body is not built for nocturnal function
maybe this was true years ago but today the doctors I see in social interaction aren't overweight. I feed my husband well balanced meals and he exercises at home often. now some of the wives I interact with are a different story
[@1149,MrBrownstone] my apologies
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
[@917533,saragoodtimes] not needed. Just had me thinking of something else
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
[@917533,saragoodtimes] I won’t eat ice cream the same way now
ElSenordeLosCielos · 22-25, F
Just because you know better doesn’t mean you will do better. I’m an esthetician (skincare specialist) and I rarely even use spf lol

Also, I’m assuming right now and even before they are overworked. Convenient food is often the most unhealthy. But if you do crazy amount of hours of work like they do, I don’t blame them for choosing pizza.

I wouldn’t be going into 10 hours of surgery and then going home to cook a healthy meal. I’m getting beer and going to Taco Bell.
Helloeveryone · 56-60, F
Sundays is pizza day that's true
They eat the left over food when people die
[@412438,ExtremeNext] love when he brings it home and I don't have to cook
[@917533,saragoodtimes] 💪
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
Logic left long time ago. Example. Virus doesn’t infect you when eating or smoking
mikeylyksit · 41-45, M
[@1149,MrBrownstone] Whoa. Talk about changing the subject. OK, I'll play along. I think all cars do need to be banned, as even electric cars contribute to global warming. But other than the fact that cars are literally making our planet unfit for human habitation...

I don't worry about cars spreading covid. Smokers on the other hand? Need to wear a mask, where mask use is mandated.
mikeylyksit · 41-45, M
[@1073121,Leggs] Well, it's interesting that you consider smokers to be people with ailments. I think I'll leave that one alone. It speaks for itself...
Leggs · 46-50, F
[@1201123,mikeylyksit] Dude you are really off your rocker.
[@1149,MrBrownstone] I'll delete my comment. never ever want to spoil your ice cream
[@1149,MrBrownstone] you might find it's a really sweet treat
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
[@917533,saragoodtimes] it absolutely is! My favorite
The health expert locking NSW down in Covid, has yellow teeth like she smokes 5 pks a day..
You’d think ppl in these positions would be poster children for health huh..

[@327405,TheOneyouwerewarnedabout] Hahahahaha! Dr. Chant, drives me crazy! Her teeth, mouth, eyes and facial features, project the Demon, within her. Don’t even get me started on getting used to the New World Ordaah!!! I loathe her!
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen an overweight doctor or nurse in my life
WildWings · 61-69, M
[@1220692,Jenny1234] Neither have I and I was in hospital for a year.
you are so busy treating ungrateful patients all you can do is grab a piece of bread for lunch lol

but seriously our doctors and nurses aren't fat

I think we should discuss patients that come in with dirty underwear and BO
but you have to act as if you don't notice

maybe we can talk about how in septic you opened a wound and have to stomp out maggots or the time you removed a potato from a vagina
Because they have to go without proper food and rest.
Elessar · 26-30, M
Not where I am, I don't know many who are.

I know a guy who was studying to become a dietologist who gave up on university after becoming essentially obese, on the other hand. This after a long period in which he had deprived himself of almost everything. Literally going from one extreme to the other.

Hmmm? I'm in a hospital at this very moment and looking around at the doctor's, nurses and color coded staff, and mostly they are trim and fit.
Azlotto · M
Great question. I know of two doctors that died of lung cancer, both of them smoked cigarettes and ate junk food.
DearAmbellina2113 · 41-45, F
Extremely long hours, exhausting workload, high stress job, fast meals, very little sleep, etc.
NewBeginnings7790 · 36-40, F
Stress, lack of time, and fucked up sleep schedules.

Not where I live.
ozgirl512 · 26-30, F
Hard and high stress job like that needs both fuel and a break into normality to keep them sane
[@516864,ozgirl512] coming home to a crazy wife gives him a break from the stress and makes him laugh the days troubles away
ozgirl512 · 26-30, F
[@917533,saragoodtimes] that too!
MotherHubbard · 56-60, F
They only work because money is essential. Health isn't really their goal, and working in this system guarantees bad health.
KA9ha · 31-35, M
too busy attending to patientsthat they get no time to go to Gynms
[@997259,KA9ha] he has a peloton in the rec room and me in the bedroom. he gets his exercise
KA9ha · 31-35, M
[@917533,saragoodtimes] ha ha you provide full satisfaction and get him exhausted ??what about the nurse though
Leggs · 46-50, F
Some of them are fatsos.

Of course they would claim, "thyroid problem"
Jonjdw · 46-50, M
I eat what ever. And don’t exercise and I’m Thin. But I’m not a doctor lol.
Calliope · 18-21, F
I noticed same with pe teachers 😹
Leggs · 46-50, F
[@1224119,Calliope] when I was in middle school, one of the PE teachers was some big ol fat lady that had three chins and looked like she had a butt in back AND front. Loud yelling obnoxious rude "B" she was.
Calliope · 18-21, F
[@1073121,Leggs] omg my pe teacher was so much like how you described 😹😹
Leggs · 46-50, F
[@1224119,Calliope] Picture this. They go in for a job interview wanting to be a PE teacher. How the heck do they get picked?
BTW her name was Ms. Tibbits, we used to call her "Ms. Two-butts"
I mean a fat PE teacher is like going to a dentist who has three teeth.

I believe anyone in any sort of work kind of needs to look the part.

Now the fat PE instructor, if they were a cook instead, I would be glad to see that, I mean obviously they appreciate good food :D

Convieniwnce eating and lack of time. (Poor choices avail)
Helloeveryone · 56-60, F
That explains why people get so heavy
Helloeveryone · 56-60, F
Some doctors even smoke
[@1211595,Helloeveryone] not many though
HairbrushDiva · 31-35, F
