Listen to the lectures of Richard Bernstein M.D. who wrote "The Diabetes Solution" and you can understand why being obese is not healthy for any of us. I got the book at the library.)
I'm sorry you have struggled with an Eating Disorder, but if you listen to the BBC documentary on YouTube "The Men Who Made Us Fat" you learn how and why we have an obesity epidemic.
Dr. Bernstein says that ALL obese people are Insulin Resistant and if given time, will develope Type 2 diabetes and then all of the complications that it brings (heart disease, nerve damage, kidney damage, etc.) I recommend reading his book to understand why staying obese is not okay.
He has had Type 1 diabetes since he was 12 and he is a healthy 78 now. He believes that obese people benefit from taking Metformin in order to lose weight. He has a Chapter in his book on PCOS which many young obese women have.
