Overweight people have to deal with a lot of tough issues: dieting, fat shaming, swimsuit shopping. Nowhere is their struggle more obvious that in the pages of Shutterstock. Stock photos of fat people tend to be comically over the top. For one thing, they are almost always about food: fat women rolling around in piles of hamburgers, chubby men stuffing themselves with cake on the couch. You name it, Shutterstock’s got it. Unless, of course, you want something reasonable and realistic.

If you’re looking for a practical shot of an overweight person just trying to go about their day, you’re out of luck. But if you need a photo of a fat woman who is slowly turning into a giant donut, you’ve come to the right place!
