I can't believe we now live in an age of such modern technology, and yet we can't seem to control our own eating habits... So lets find someone to blame for it.

When I am out I like stopping in at a fast food joint for a big fat juicy burger, fries and the super size DIET coke.... But if I get fat... its not my fault.. is it?

Why are so many blaming the fast food industry for the fat asses who can't get enough of their food?

Do we need a JUST SAY NO menu... or maybe there should be new laws that make it mandatory for all fast food customers to be weighed before getting in line... and then sent to the proper line for low carb, low fat food only. Then the rest of us can eat all we want while they watch and lose weight in envy.

McDonalds now has a healthy menu including adult happy meals... including toys that can aid in counting calories or losing weight.... of course this only means that the fat asses will order 10 healthy happy meals and then who's fault will that be?

There are law suits coming from fat asses all over America... and most are aimed at the fast food industry... now they are even suing the people who create diets to help them lose weight.

Today there is an investor group suing Krispy Cream doughnut corp. because they said they underestimated the cost to investors as a result of the low carb diet craze... what the F__K? they are being sued for not having a CRYSTAL BALL!... hmm maybe they could come up with an all meat low carb doughnut?

Low Carb.. No Carb... just means more less carb foods will be eaten... and the fat asses will continue to grow.. and look for others to blame.

When will the fat asses and their lawyers learn that it is not the FOOD's fault?

I guess I am one of the lucky ones who can have their cake and eat it too... and my ass is just fine


Wake up people.. eat and drink in moderation.. if not shut the hell up and let your A$$ grow.. in fact be proud of it... It seems that the collective ass of America is the largest in the world... we are a Super Power of Super Massive Asses!

C ya... By the way I am headed to Taco Bell for a 10 pack of tacos and a giant diet coke now!

Happy eating!

Gazz

It's not only the fat asses that have to worry, you can be thin and your cholesterol can still be through the roof. I work with a burger and fries guy, the more fat the better. He's rake thin, about 50, and I'm guessing that he won't see 60. Can't talk to him though.

Ha thats hillarious.
It always amazes me how much food people eat, and to help 'stay healthy' they get the diet coke. If your overweight and unhealthy, fast food and soda should be the last thing on your mind.:shk:

Sad but true my friend.

It's not my fault.

I have hand, foot and mouth disease.

My feet walk me straight past the salads and in to McFattButt, then my hand shovels the food right in to my waiting mouth.

I have a thyroid problem.

It's water retention. (I don't think there's a lot of water in a Big Mac)

I know I'm being an ass. But. There are way too many over weight people out there!!

BMI - Body Mass Index is bollllocks according to that I'm obese Ha. I've just got really heavy bones.

You forgot that a virus is also responsible for your weight problems:
Does The Ad-36 Virus Cause Obesity! 97 million Americans are overweight or obese!

It's not your fault. Damned adenoviruses... oh wait, that's what's causing your hand, foot and mouth disease, isn't it?

it's a common misconception that a FAT ASS is unhealthy and does nothing but eat and sit around and sloth...

Let me tell you though it may be that a majority do these things ... not all do and it pisses me off to no F__king end when people generalize like this

I am 34, 5'2 and I weigh near 200 lbs

I wear a size 16 (USA) measuements 42-36-40

That said I get S*&T all the time about "Why don't you diet?" "Why don't you work out or something"

Ok F__ktard... first of all If you knew what I ate you'd really feel like a SCHTICK!! My diet consists of Chicken, fish, green, veggies, water, tea or coffee to drink If I eat "carbs" it's whole wheat or grain and no my portions arent "supersized"

Excersize... hmmm let's see I guess taking Tae Kwon Do 3 times a week is not considered excersize or a work out? I guess the rank of orange belt it so simple to achieve that any ole FAT ASS could do it right?? Even if you are obese and unhealthy.....

Oh yeah I don't go running every morning either....... nope not me (/end sarcasm)
Stupid close minded arrogant ignorant folks I swear!

I do all the right things yet still I remain as I am... tell me why should I be lumped in with generalizations about people just because I am not 100 pounds???

All I know is that I've programmed myself to the point where if I eat fast food hamburgers and fries, I want to throw up and actually do sometimes. I guess that's good or bad depending on how you look at it. And I'm talking I eat that crap maybe once every couple of weeks.

Now as far as Diet Coke goes, I drink it by the boatload. Damn you Rumsfeld!

Peace

Dieting is just a game of numbers.

However, few people have any idea of the number of calories they eat.

Rather than come here and whine about being fat, why not count the calories you're eating in one typical day. Then you'll know EXACTLY why you're fat.

It would be my fault if I stopped by and ate his wares, and balooned out to 'x-rta lardo size'.

People everywhere, have to be 'food calorie conscience' now-a-days.

Whenever I hear of a place being called > fast food, I must remind myself, and others, that this is the place where one can 'volentarilly choose to harden ones arteries', OR this is the place where one doesn't/can't find within their means to cook a 1/2 decent healthy meal, so therefore: "What you see...is what you get." THEREFORE....

expect yer arteries to clog
expect yer hunger to be sated...momentarilly
expect 'a moment on the lips...a 'lifetime on the hips'.
expect yerself to be hungry after an hour (like some crazed chinese 'rice' food) Results are the same.

I myself, am trying to prepare 'proper/healthy' meals, as opposed to the controversial 'quick fix -tasty gook' that's out there.

It's hard folks.

Those fast food places make 'pretty good tasting' stuffs.

For those who are on a diet...that stuff should be...

from the public eye.

Temptations.

My sentiments exactly.

There's a huge stretch of Americans blaming every aspect of their personal environments for every single one of their ailments and in the same respect taking no accountability for their own actions. People are obsessed with weight and what it takes to be skinny, and somewhere deep inside of them, they know that their decisions regarding diet are going to catch up with them one way or another, but refuse to take control of their eating habits. Not that the industry has any fault in that, because there's no need for a triple meat triple cheese burger ANYWHERE in this world, but there would be no supply if there wasn't a demand.

Personal accountability and responsibility play a huge role in this circus we call modern eating habits. And I, as you, am just as sick of it as the next person. Fat people and their excuses for everything. Count me out.

It's not Fast food.
It's designer food.

To some people it's addictive, to others it's not.

This isn't Grandma's recipe.
Unless your Grandma is a chemist for McDonalds.
This stuff is chemically engineered, to keep you coming back.
Smell, mouth feel, taste, sugar and salt content, all in precise amounts, to make your brain think you are happy. For 20 minutes.
Not everyone can resist the temptation.

I'm on the fence about who's fault it is.
But I can say this. When it was considered a "treat", there weren't nearly as many obese people in the country. Now that this crap is considered DINNER, things have changed.

They may engineer the food, but it's our responsibility to overcome those petty cravings. My issue with society is there is no accountability for an individual's actions. None. Saying it's anybody else's fault but the person "dependent" on any food item is misplacing the responsibility.

Oh, I agree that it's up to the individual.
It's a conscious decision to pull into a drive-thru.

It's tempting, easy, fast. Some people have a hard time turning it down.
I have a nephew with a fast food jones.

We know it, he knows it. But he keeps going for the double whopper with cheese. He lives somewhere else now.

What would you say to him, to get him to stop?

Buy him a copy of "Fast Food Nation" for starters. It's not what to say to him, but where to start. Weight issues and caloric intake would be a good initiation into "why" that # "sucks." You could usher in colon cancer, heart disease, and saturated fat and sugar dependencies after that.

I was in Barnes and Noble the other day and was surprised to see how many books there are on dieting. Each of them hundreds of pages! This is astonishing to me since loosing weight can be summed up in a few words: If you burn up more calories than you take in, it is physically impossible to put on extra weight. In other words: eat less, move around more. I should write a book!

To some people that is just mind blowing. They can't grasp the concept of not using food as some recreational activity, but as fuel. And it's not so much "eat less," but even eat more efficiently. Calories play a huge role in determining one's health, but if your nutrients don't parallel your calories, that may also get you in trouble.

i seen a tv show the other night about a guy who i *think* was the biggest person in the world?

he was 350kg.. yes three HUNDRED + kilograms (over 700lb)

bed ridden for 7 years, covered in sores, his wife wasnt too healthy looking either.
he got sick, had a whale sling and bunch of fireman to get him out his house and into a nursing home specialising in super morbidly obese people.

but its voluntary, they cant force him to eat proper and when they tried he got real cranky..
His wife comes to visit with several shopping bags filled with chips, chocs, and other crud "coz he likes it"..
then 2mins later she is talking to the camera saying "oh id hate to lose him, i really hope he loses the weight and gets better"

what the ??? he cant get out of bed, how can he eat chips and junk and wash it down with several big soft drinks if you dont supply it you silly moo-cow!

well, needless to say he died about a month after they filmed him, at approx mid 30's age.

DeadFlagBlues,
Funny you mention that book. My wife and I keep a copy on the bookshelf.
Does wonders for the diet!

We've referred to it many times with him. Told him to read it.
we read passages out loud to him. It didn't seem to get through.
He lived with us for a few years, we cooked healthy foods for him.
Kept water around for drinking. I even switched to drinking only water as an example.

It didn't matter, he would sneak the food in his room. Then once a week, sneak the trash bag out to the dumpster. I went through the bags, for receipts once. He was ordering, 6 to 7 sandwiches per order. Plus Fries, or whatever was offered as a side.

He once said to me "I don't want to lose weight because it makes me look weak".

All the hiding and denial, reminded me of addictive behavior.

So does Obliv_au's story.
The guy kept eating until he died, and his wife was an enabler.

Again, the typical stereotype rantings of someone who is prejudice against fat people. Not all of us bigger people eat at fast food places all the time nor even if we do, blame the fast food joint for making us fat. Not all of us order a mass of food and then a diet coke. I personally don't like diet pop, I can't stand the taste of aspertame.

And everyone has the right to free choice...unless we are fat right? That's ridiculous.

Yes dieting sounds simple, but not to a food addict, and not to someone who seems to be genetically predisposed, who does eat right and gets excersize and still doesn't lose the weight or loses it and gains it back again soon after. There are many different body types and each of our bodies can process food and activity differently.

Now I am not the type to blame fast food places, at least not in the extreme that the people requesting lawsuits do. However you can imagine the effect that their advertising has on a food addict, and that's exactly the people they are advertising too.

I am sure it's hard for you to understand because you probably haven't been there in the way some of us had. However getting over an addiction to food, stopping emotional driven eating and finding a plan that works for our body type can be a very difficult and heart wrenching process.
