Tacos. I want tacos. And burrito's. And chips and salsa.


As long as your body is healthy and fit then you can eat whatever you like.

There is no one food that will make everyone healthy.

That's why calorie intake and nutrition is key when choosing what we eat.

But if you get what you need from fast food. Then eat fast food. If your healthy your healthy.

Truro Tesco Superstore, but even then it's not much different in my local Tesco Express, maybe add 25% to everything.
Are you saying poor people can't eat healthy food cheap or not? Are the prices in Falmouth prohibitive meaning you are forced to buy frozen crap from say Farm Foods or Iceland?

Would be far cheaper to eat a MacDonalds.


It's far cheaper to cook my own meals in the states than it is to eat fast food all the time.

Last time I'll ask mate, have you got any on-topic contribution to make to this thread?
All mature reasoned arguments are welcome about the topic, not me or my intentions making the thread.


What happens then?

On topic, I would love to see the actual bill for those groceries.

How is that on-topic? All you are doing now is switching from labeling me a 'fat shamer' to now a liar.
Discuss the topic, not me and my intentions. I've asked you lots of times now.
Argue my points if you disagree with any of them. This is not facebook mate.

It's tragic to be honest, I actually know a few unhealthy people who haven't eaten a fruit or vegetable in years, well unless you can count the salad in fast food like a McD's or kebab as eating fruit and veg. I know some folk who would actually turn down my stew tonight because there was no meat in it.

I wouldn't say that you can't eat healthy cheaply, but around here certainly not as cheap as the prices you quoted unfortunately.

First off cabbage taste wonderful!

But yes as long as you get the nutrition you need and you exercise then it doesn't mater what you eat , not really.

That's the problem people have. They take in tons of calories and don't work any of it off.

I have no sympathy for a person that wants to lose weight but refuses to exercise.

I gotta say In the member's defence, he has got a dry and dark sense of humour with all topics so I don't think it was meant to be cruel or horrible. Just an edgy joke.

Yup. I am a full advocate for if people are obese they did it to themselves.
Although, I have learned that over eating can be a disorder, and it actually can be a medical issue. I have a friend who has a thyroid gland issue and cannot eat anything heavy in starches. If they do it completely disrupts their over all health, and even mood, he can't even eat pizza! It was one of the first times I was introduced to a keto diet, and he's still somewhat over weight even on his high fat, low carbs.

But my motto is, if you have access to a stove and oven, you can cook a healthy meal.
My microwave is used for re-heating, and the odd time if I want some cooked veggies in a hurry I steam them in there.

You are getting to the extreme end of the island though, same up Scotland way I bet.
Have you tried any Polish shops if you have any near? They are fantastic and cheaper with lots of meat products, give it a go and don't be afraid to ask if it's the best price they can do.
They know most of their people are on minimum wage in the UK so they keep their prices low, even if it is imported.

Must be a nightmare for your friend, no pizza!
I said earlier I was vegan for a couple of years and finally cracked buying a pizza at the hotel I was staying at in Pnom Phen Cambodia of all places lol.
Agree about the microwave, it's just a warmer-upper for me.

I don't believe those costs, prove me wrong.

Most poor areas in the u.s don't have a cheap grocery store in walking distance to them but they have plenty of fast food places up in those areas.

What in the wide world of sports is a gramme?

In the usa a grammy is an award we give to the recipients of all the energy the overweight people hold for them.

I don't care that you don't believe me, and this thread is about poor people affording food in the UK, not the US.
If you wish to discuss common complaints about reasons for being obese in the UK please do, I will always entertain such a conversation.
EDIT
Search Tesco.com and browse to your hearts content at our low prices. If you buy online you can get it delivered same day usually anywhere on the island. Britain has a good distribution network.
If you buy in-store then smaller ones are a little more expensive but often have reductions online doesn't.
You seem like to a troll to me mate, now that's all I'll say about you thinking I'm lying, how about stick to the topic I started, or start your own one about US food prices.

Lol: Gramme Said the same as Gram, but with the E at the end it becomes a noun so my error. I think most people knew what I meant.

Behave, I was vegan for a couple of years and lived well cheap. Lots of my mates are vegan and eat perfectly nutritious food cheap, I'm around their homes regularly, and two are single parents on benefits. Benefit rates are national so I think you are just making your argument up because you think I've been mean to fat people.


Vegan and plant based are different things. The irony that you are complaining about people being unhealthy because of there food and you are doing the same. You are no different than those people that are unhealthy from obesity. You are just doing it in a different way.
