Fox News has a feature on its website titled: "We are raising a generation of deluded narcissists" which pretty much summarizes the basic reason so many young folks are so messed up, nutritionally, academically, etc. It essentially says that we have raised a generation of narcissists who have been conditioned to believe they are absolutely great and can't deal with the reality that they are average at best. They overeat, over drink, and act like spoiled children often caught up in a fantasy world of video games and faceless interactions.

way back there, back when I used banks and loan companies, I always tried to get interviewed by the most huge over weight loan manager available. I knew they more tolerant of bending rules or requiring disciplined attention to details. Like, they didn't expect me to follow the rules either.

America's Obesity Belt solid from WV south & west through 'Texass' voted Romney. He may have got 80 or 90% of the 47% he hates. Republicans want to keep that part of America, and beyond, fat & stupid.

Let's keep it simple; excess fat kills. Being substantially overweight or obese has enormous negative impacts on the quality and quantity of life. Fat people are not "jolly." They are simply fat, and most sincerely wish they could control their weight. Managing your diet is obviously important, but exercise is equally critical. No one gets to live forever, but we can make our lives longer, more productive and enjoyable by some fairly simple steps. Start small - but start!

It is not what goes in to the mouth that defiles. It is what comes out of the mouth. Obama & liberal democrats are a classic example. They are responsible for million$ & million$ of deaths through their ungodly laws & deceptive ways. Just think about it.

John McClane, in the movie "Die Hard", was accused of destroying a building.

Liberals & democrats are guilty of destroying a once great and vibrant nation, known as America. They only need 4 more years to "finish the job".

Is this the end result of too many food stamps?

We should all be concerned about how much food we eat in excess of what we need.

We could all be concerned about what is actually in our food. MSG used to be regulated, and should be still today. High fructose corn syrup is linked to obesity, yet is in many foods.
