Morbid Obesity is a life threatening condition where the individual is
100 pounds or more above their optimal weight for their height due to
the chronic urge to overeat.
Although medicine speculates that genetic mutation, brain chemistry,
physical addiction, psychological pain or a combination of these is
the cause of morbid obesity, it has not named one of these as the cause.
At the levels of weight classified as Morbid Obesity, unhealed past
life karma IS the primary cause... as in:
Feeding the Past:
The most common past life cause of Morbid
Obesity is starvation in one or more past lives. For most of human
history, food was scarce. People usually did not eat everyday. When
they did eat, there were two light meals at most. Hunger was a
sensation that people learned to live with. Starvation was what most
people spent their entire lives trying to hard to avoid. When people
have starved to death in past life after past life, their body develops
a constant desire to overeat and their mind-emotions makes sure that
Fear of the Past:
Even if the individual did not actually
starve in many past lives, the fear of starving was ever present.
Fear of the very real threat of starvation is almost as compelling -
karmically - as actually having starved to death. In past lives,
most everyone personally witnessed one or more people having died
from starvation (or literally lying dead in the street). The only
sure cure for starvation was to take every opportunity of eating...
Guilty Over the Past:
Guilt from past lives is another
powerful driver of present life Morbid Obesity. Those who gorged
themselves with food - while most others around them starved - often
will layer on the weight now as punishment. The guilt over their
misconduct packs on the pounds - and keeps them on - as long as the
individual feels bad for having "eaten cake" in past lives while
others had nothing.
Loathing in the Past:
Those who teased, mocked, ridiculed,
or hated "fat" people in past lives, are the fat ones this time
around. This is classic past life karma: "What you bring hate to,
you reincarnate into!" The only way to stop hating a fat person is
to understand them... by becoming one, especially in today's looks
crazy society. Only when the fat person stops loathing themselves
and others who are "fat like them"... can the weight come off for good.

Obesity, as defined by the National Institutes of Health, means an
individual weighs 20% or more than their optimal body weight for
their height. Morbid Obesity, also known as "clinically severe
obesity," means an individual 100 pounds or more over their body
weight, with a body mass index of 40 or higher.
Past life driven Morbid Obesity has a high rate of relapse. For
example, Michael Hebranko, in the 1980s, at 1,100 pounds, was
fattest man in the world. With the help of diet-exercise coach,
Richard Simmons, Hebranko dropped down to a mere 200 pounds in
only 19 months. He made the Guinness Book of Records in 1990 as
the world's greatest dieter. By 1997, Hebranko was back up to
Without solving the underlying past life issues driving the Morbid
Obesity, the pounds reincarnated, showing that his past was still
Karma works on the basis of default meaning it creates the future
for an individual in a pre-determined pattern unless that individual
takes active steps to heal it. So the individual, who is morbidly
obese and who is diagnosed with having it, has two choices. Either
they can do nothing and allow their morbid obesity to run its course
eventually killing them -or- take active steps to heal the causes of
their uncontrollable over-eating. No one is a helpless victim of past
life karma... unless they do nothing and chose to fall "victim" to it.
When the life lesson associated with Morbid Obesity has been fully
learned and "absorbed" into the person's body-mind, the body may
release the uncontrollable urge to overeat. Often all that is needed
is for the individual to confront the past life(s) where overeating
originated. Going back to the past via past life healing becomes the
means of freeing the Morbid Obese from being condemned to repeat
those lessons in the future.
