I have to agree with dskinnerau. If I cheat one day, I have to spend at least 3 days making up for that one day. I've lost 40 pounds so far (since March 2012), and I have 60 pounds to go. I cheated for my birthday, ate doritos, a Snickers bar, and a cupcake. One week has past, and I still have not lost the 2 pounds that I gained in that one day, and I'm fighting food cravings that I haven't had for months. And, when one has been losing 1 pound per week, that's horrendous. So... have they done any studies on cheating in obese individuals or in individuals on a Paleo diet? My guess is either no or they don't want to show the results.

This list is absolutely awesome. For some reason, I could never find a list of snacks that fit my diet, and Larabars and smoothees do get boring. I still have to pick and choose (dairy allergic and no grains/sugar). But, I am very happy to have some more options.
I was surprised to not see Larabars on the list since Kind bars showed up. There are several homemade recipes that mimic Larabars on the internet.

Well, I learned something today. Be really careful what you say when you get emotionally riled. When I initially read your article, it was clear that you were discussing how it may be important to provide specialty gyms for overweight individuals. But, you also used the term "banning" to gather interest which led me to actually read the original article which really riled me. So, I apologize for overgeneralizing.
Yet, my original concern is still valid. It can be an uphill battle for significantly overweight individuals to lose weight which is what you were trying to explore. As for your question about what kinds of information would you like to see or learn about... After reading the daily news article, I'm actually interested in learning more about the Body Exchange or even other gyms that cater to plus size individuals. I agree alot with Ellemca's comment.

As a person whose lost 40 pounds of the 100 pounds that I need to lose, there is not a gym in my area that caters to individuals that are plus size. It is clear from their web sites that they are geared for those of skinnier persuasions. I'm sure that they would accept my money, but it's also clear that I would be uncomfortable in their establishments.
I'm also curious who first started using the term "ban" in reference to these gyms for overweight individuals. So, I read the original Daily News article.
Oh, Greatist, which by the way, I really like your website. You should bow your head in shame.
The Daily News used the word , "ban". None of the establishments highlighted in the article "ban" skinny individuals. They are more than welcome to join. Indeed, even the Body Exchange does NOT ban skinny people.
I started reading this article thinking that my hesitation to join a gym was in part to my imagining discrimination that may not exist.
As I finish reading this article, I know that the discrimination against overweight individuals is not fantasy, but is reality.
If I wasn't clear enough. This article is nothing but the dissemination of discrimination against overweight people.
