An overweight friend recently claimed that, far from being a “petrol guzzling car”, he was doing his bit for the environment as a carbon-sequestration unit. He, and countless others like him, were tying up millions of kilos in carbon with their extra padding and a global fat-loss program might well precipitate catastrophic climate change. Maybe next time Hitchcock is faced with a recalcitrant overweight patient she could take them aside and thank them for saving us all from certain doom. It seems more likely than them doing the same for themselves.
