A 300-pound Arkansas jail inmate has filed a suit that he is not being fed well. This inmate weighed 413 pounds when first jailed. By my calculations that is an average weight loss of about 12.91 pounds a week. While I am sure that the diet is adequate, I think that some investigation needs to be done as to what is causing this man to lose so much weight. Is it alright to lose that much a week when one is at a higher weight. Does the jail have medical supervision for this dramatic weight loss? Would this rapid weight loss have been totally overlooked if the inmate had not complained?
