Well, at least American's aren't the ONLY fatties on the planet... claiming your family is TOO FAT to work and want more benefits? I say get your fat butt off the couch, consume LESS CALORIES -- 3,000 a DAY -- and exercise -- if you consume "real" food rather than over-processed CRAP, you might be surprised how UN-heredity your condition truly is.

UK Family 'Too Fat to Work'

LOS ANGELES - A family of four in England say their weight prevents them from working and they need more government assistance, according to the Daily Telegraph .

Philip Chawner, 53, and his 57-year-old wife Audrey reportedly each weigh 336 pounds and their daughters Emma, 19, and Samantha, 21, weigh 238 pounds and 252 pounds, respectively.

The family receives approximately $31,553 a year in benefits. They claim to spend about $70 a week on groceries and consume 3,000 calories a day.

They say their weight is a hereditary condition. "All that healthy food, like fruit and veg, is too expensive. We're fat because it's in our genes. Our whole family is overweight," Audrey Chawner said.

A 2008 study by Yale's Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity suggests weight bias is as prevalent as racial discrimination.
