Is a straight up fucking lie. I've lost nearly 15 pounds in the last two and a half months.

Which isn't a bad thing but I do kind of miss the days where I can just order Chinese takeout without fear of any financial turmoil from doing so.

Long live NoNolesNeckin.

Ya fuckin' ganderneck.
It's not exactly being poor that makes you fat. I'd say it's having to eat cheap processed foods full of 10 different types of sugar and oils and massive amounts of carbs. And with limited physical activity your body can't burn off all the fat it takes in because you have so much glucose to burn for energy instead. Which is why keto diets are so popular now.

Of course, I'm no expert in this shit and that's just the best of my layman's understanding. The thing is, I have to eat fresh meat and vegetables home cooked exclusively because of my health condition and it really isn't that expensive, especially compared to eating fast food or takeout. You just have to have the time and will to cook your own food.

I guess that's the thing, neither the time or the money are really an issue (especially now when prices for fast food/takeout are simply unjustifiable). I've been living off bowls of rice for some time now and one $6 bag will last me a good two weeks every day. Cooking time isn't even an issue either since I just throw the rice in the rice cooker with a can of chili and some butter and call it a day.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
Yeah but you forget poor people are stupid and that's why they're poor and fat

I am still with Disney but I am not currently where I should/want to be. I’m ultimately just trying to get back but there’s a lot of nuance to my situation.

I will answer this when the situation is resolved as I am still In Medias Res with it. Luckily it is not anything that can not be undone, but it will take a considerable amount of time.

If you know, you know.

If you have time + motivation to cook.

People working min wage probably have crazy shifts that subtract time and motivation. So they would resort to the fastest meal they can afford - which is most likely not a healthy one.

Tbh I am lying on my bed looking at my laptop, feeling rich, but I, too, am fat as fuck. So I don't think it has to do with money, rather person and job.

This is also a meme.  It does not take a lot of time to cook a meal.  I eat five meals a day for building up the mass working out and the only one that takes any real prep time is suppers and that's because I choose to take the time on supper.  I whip up breakfast, lunch, a protein shake, and my last meal of a giant bowl of beans in literally under five minutes each (well, technically the beans take an hour in a Croc Pot but I don't have to tend to that while it auto-cooks).  Supper I usually set out an hour in the evening to cook and eat and chill, but I could (and sometimes do) just throw something together faster.

The whole "eating healthy is expensive/takes to much time time/etc" claims are things that I hear on My 600lb Life as excuses for how people became terminally obese when the real culprit is always personal choices often driven by various traumas.  Nothing helps anyone validating completely false claims that it's difficult or expensive to eat healthy.  You can buy a $5 bag of white bread at the store full of sugar and nonsense shit chemicals, or you can buy a 5lb bag of flour for the same price and make near infinite loaves of bread without all the fattening stuff in it.  Or better yet just not eat bread if you're super trying to lose weight.

Even when I was in college and had no money, I made meals with fresh meats and vegetables very little processed canned or boxed foods
 
Your diet affects your mood, energy levels, physique, and long term health
It's such an important part of your wellness that spending more on good meals is a no brainer

It's certainly harder but by no means impossible even if you're poor
It all comes down to priorities
You don't need that new iPhone but you definitely need some broccoli
