Correct. That's why it's an illogical statement. If you are cooking a meal for others, you must include additional people in the dollar menu price.
Otherwise, it makes no sense.
I cook Sunday through Friday for my family and I can tell you there are more than a few people I know that feel cooking is burdensome and
therefore don't do much cooking in their homes.
I'm not interested in their feelings. Lame excuse.
This is why the fast food industry is thriving because people think they can't cook a meal for themselves or their families daily, too much
trouble. You're right people can put forth a bit of effort to have a homemade meal for lunch and dinner but many in this fast paced society think
they can't and that's part of the problem.
The other part of the problem is food is no longer food. People spend a great deal of money shopping at places like Whole Foods only to
discover the FDA owns the term Organic therefore they can define what it means and what qualifies as "organic".
Yes, and you would be wise to look into exactly what the "organic" label carries. There are many things which are of benefit in foods purchased which
are labeled "organic", from a lack of synthetic chemical petsicides, to organic fertilizers, to non-gmo always. Another one I can't stand is the
coating you find on conventional produce, often. I don't consume food-like substances. My food is real food.
The way I see it folks are saying ba humbug, lazy, lazy about people who are fat not understanding every person's body deals with the influx of
hormone imitating chemicals, toxins, and malnutrition differently. Some people bodies get fat, others can't gain weight, cancers, diabetes, heart
disease, glandular problems, the illnesses goes on. So be very careful about passing judgment when you see someone fat, you never know how they got
I pass judgment on society in general, not every fat individual. Most of it is due to poor diet and a lack of adequate exercise. Some people due to a
variety of other environmental factors, interacting with genetic susceptibilities.

I'm not sure if you're being serious or not. I'm sorry, but the super model look seems to be the result of at least one eating disorder in many cases.
The thing about being under weight is that your health declines much more rapidly away from the low end of "healthy", than the high end.
A BMI of 22 is fine for most people. I was under the impression that the average supermodel was from 14-18 BMI. Skin and bones. My BMI is gaining a
little bit every week, but that's because I'm in the first year of strength training. By the time it's all said and done, I could be officially
overweight, but would look built...no belly.
There's really nothing wrong with a little belly. I honestly don't mind it on a woman. Having curves and T&A is super sexxxy, imo. Skin and bones?? No
