medical conditions don't increase weight they may make you more susceptible to weight gain therefore you have to tailor your intake to reflect this.
Simple maths indeed HM.
I don't think any right minded person is ever trying to say that biological conservation of energy has ever been shown to be broken by "special" people, all the same, it's needlessly dismissive to ignore soft factors like behaviourism.
The medical conditions and drugs people often take, that are told may affect their weight, don't do so by magic - in many cases it's impact on hormones or the appetite, as opposed to suddenly proving some magic about being able to create energy.
There are facts that are often, conveniently overlooked - and this ISN'T making excuses for people, but it's proper understanding, as opposed to point-and-comment jibes, because a lot of what people choose to take the piss out of in the past, has been taken off the menu. All things are not equal - there are people who legitmately find it harder to put on weight - just as a counter, there are people who legitmately find it harder to lose weight. There are people who's hormone profile, predisposition to partitioning, means that they are more likely to increase more muscle than others when they gain weight, just as there are people who are more likely to increase more fat than muscle when they gain weight. There are people who's metabolic rate is naturally higher than others. There are people who absorb more / less from the food they ingest. All things are not necessarily equal - nor is hormonal response to the food we all eat a level playing field.
That's not to say that there's any magic involved in losing weight - but those that over-simplify, or seek to so easily rush to judgement, are as retarded as my idea on how to make millions from my very own diet book. It was to have four - that's right, four - and I didn't copyright them, so feel free...
"Eat less, do more."
The millions never rolled in.
Can't for the life of me think why.
Anybody who wants to be either judgemental, or the point-and-criticise, then dismiss, in my experience at least, doesn't fully understand the situation. That we are not all equal, that behaviourism is very much a huge part of why people are fat, thin, "normal", or that hormone landscape and response very much has a significant impact on appetite, and how the body reacts to food, is simply seeing things as they want to see them, and fitting them to their very own bias and prejudice.
And if you believe that not to be the case, then buy my bloody book already.
