Maybe I should have titled this “How to fight the FAT”"?
Daily we hear or see the studies that say just how obese the American people are…..and daily we hear this pundit or that rant and rave about overweight kids and adults…just how disgusting it is and a drag on the society….and they preach something has GOT to be done to stem this rising tide…..and then they go on to the regulation of salt or fat or sugar or……everything they find objectionable….
They find objectionable? They? Who the Hell are they? Mostly they are people that make plenty of cash and have plenty of leisurely time on their hands….meaning they can afford the more expensive “healthy alternatives” and they have the time to play in a gym or run in the street and block traffic……unfortunately, most working people are not so lucky, they struggle with money and they have zero leisure time….
First of all, in a restaurant it is a choice of the people what they will eat and if they like a burger with bacon and lots of blue cheese then who the Hell are they to tell them it is not good to eat this? Sorry, for now I still have free choice after that they can kiss my ass.
These self-centered people also support lower healthier food in schools, low fat, less salt and sugar free……a noble concern….but what about when they go home? We all know the dangers of high sugar, high fat and high salt, or at least we should.
For all those bleeding heart dietary freaks…….most people that are obese are poor….they are poor because they have NO money……they buy what stretches the food budget the best….that means high fat, high sugar because those foods are the cheapest. No matter what you try to do in schools or restaurants…they will go home and eat the foods that you are bitching about…..why? They are poor!
Okay……you are on your high horse about the high fat, high sugar and high salt diets of people…here is an idea! Make healthy eating less expensive and poor people would be eating more healthier…..the whole population would eat better…and is not the idea you originally started with?
But you will not….you will spend all your time and effort talking about the habits of obese people and their children….you will condemn and ridicule….instead of facing reality and attacking the real reason cause of obesity….POVERTY!
