isn't telling fat people that being thin would be better for them then kinda like telling someone with only one kidney left that having two would be better for them?

Lets assume you're right with the problem of people not being able to keep the weight down. Not sure about the scientific evidence here, so I don't open up this topic. My point is completely different:

Nobody in their right mind would dispute having two kidneys is better than having one.

Saying that out loud is not bullying towards single-kidney-people. It's just the truth.

Trying to keep people from getting obese in the first place is a good idea, sure, but "it's better to lose weight" doesn't help fat people and this kind of "concerned comment" is only a little better than outright bullying when it's about something you can't change.

This is ludicrous.

Of course you can change it. It's just very hard - not impossible.

Your logic reminds me of this simpsons bit:

You can change it. It's just hard. 

Would you also say it's bullying to say somebody should lose their tobacco addiction, their alcohol addiction or their meth "habbit"?

Don't be the product, buy the product!
