Actually I don't .
We eat in moderation and have active lifestyles.
I don't know why you said I act "mightier than Thou" . I'm just speaking the truth as I know it for me.
Every single Northener that I HAVE EVER MET are the rudest people in this country and that includes my husband and his entire family.
Just being truthful, thats all.

The fried food and heavy fat content in them makes sense to me but to hear people say that it's too hot is silly. I grew up in the south and I still got exercise in the summer. Swimming anyone? Or how about a gym with AC. It can be done, it just takes a little effort, which seems to be the main thing lacking here.

Sorry, not buying it. It's a cultural thing.. we love fried things and biscuits and gravy, to name two. Plus, the fact that it's very easy climate-wise to grow vegies. Ever heard the title "Fat and happy"?
