Do you wonder why everyone is soo fat? Do you wonder why you see junk food everywhere? And do you wonder why fruits and veggies cost sooo much?

  I admit it - I am too CHEAP to buy fresh veggies! Thankfully, I am in an area that I can grow my own almost year round. I was lagging though and am in a lull between most of my summer and winter veggies for about a month. OMG!! When did those veggies prices go up AGAIN! WOW! How I ever wanted to pay for them??!! Who knows? Thankful a few things will tide me over well enough. Next year I Will plant my lettuce etc earlier.
It is strange I agree, when I go to the store I see the packaged food people are buying. Ready made, tons of salt, lots of sugar seems the way people are going. Help them all!

    I was in a restaurant the other day and I paid attention to the portion on my plate and it was probably enough for 3 or 4 people. Thatís how it usually is. I always push aside a single serving and leave the rest before I begin eatingÖ.or at least I visually determine ahead of time how much to eat. I find that when I dig in without paying attention, I donít even realize how much I eat. Before you can barely sit down, the servers in most of these restaurants try an push an appetizer on you, and I think they try and confuse you on purpose to make you order more stuff --- order more of the WRONG fattening high calorie stuff --- because youíre so focused on how good it sounds. Then they push dessert on us. Some places will even bring around a tray of desserts. Funny that seeing that cake or pie right in front of you is far more enticing than seeing the words on the menu. We need better control, but restaurants do a lot to contribute to it. Thatís we you should limit our eating out, and try not to eat out when we are starving.

    At the grocery store yesterday they had ONE cucumber for 1.10 and a sale on 3 candy bars for .89. Really makes you wonder, doesn't it?

    There's always a conspiracy going on. We live in a world fraught with intrigue and guilt.

It's best to eat whole foods, exercise, and get plenty of rest.

BTW: That link puts a unremovable follow drop down that is as anoying as crap.

    Fruit and veggies don't have to cost so much. I realized that when I cut the crap out of my diet, (chips, candy, soda) I had more than enough to buy the good for me stuff. It helps to shop sales too. At some point the blame for America's weight problems needs to be put where it belongs, in the hands of those eating. I admit it, I'm fat. It isn't McDonald's fault, or Hershey's. Its mine. I choose to eat their foods and didn't treat my body properly. Therefore, I am reaping the consequences of a poor diet. The tools have been there all along. They haven't changed.
