During my last visit in July, it struck me that they were pushing covid vaccination during publicity spots. However immediately after the pro-vaccination info they put fast-food publicity knowing that fast-food is a main cause of diabetes and that 40% of the people died of covid had diabetes. It's a clear message that they don’t give a f*ck about Americans as individuals but that the economy just has to keep turning. When you start looking into everything that's happening over there, it's difficult not to become anti-American. And the weirdest thing of all is that when you talk to people there, practically nobody is happy with the current situation. But still, nothing changes...

We have too much shot food available and not enough access to quality ingredients to prepare healthy meals in the US.

If I end up in one I order a small burger and eat a bite.

This saves me from having to explain it to my lunch mate.

Too tired to crusade when the temptation is everywhere and most know it's crap nutrition already but like it's taste.

I don't understand why we do this to ourselves anyway.

It's really kind of amazing how you stop craving the garbage once you're able to break yourself off it for a while.

Crap food is kind of like smoking for me. When I fall off the wagon and give in to temptation, I instantly regret it as it makes me feel awful. Can't even sneak a candy bar as a treat anymore. Good thing though.

I agree it's habit forming like sweet snacks. The carbs in a order of fries likely gives a sugar rush and crash like sweets.

Dear friends,

Obesity is a complex disease involving an excessive amount of body fat. Obesity isn't just a cosmetic concern.

I frontload most of my cals early in the day and dinner ends up being really light; meat and vegetables usually. Most importantly, stay active. For me, lots of kettlebell swings every morning, calisthenics whenever I can, and Muay Thai classes. Rapidly burned off that post 40 weight and look and feel better now than I did in my 20s.

Dear friends,

It's Alfie again, Michael's husband.
Mickey was forced into early retirement and out of sheer frustration he ate mountains of unhealthy food.
He clearly took some weight.
Please don't make jokes about him.
Regards
Alfie

I knew a guy with hyperthyroid, man he could eat ANY thing and not gain a pound.

I don't know about other countries but in the US it is hard to eat healthy. Sugar is added to everything. Processed foods are the norm, even the processed foods that are "healthy" have BS added to them. Every place has soda, it is abnormal to go out to eat and not order a soda.

They make ready made salads in bags with all the ingredients, you would think how can that not be healthy and then you check out the amount of servings and calories.

Beer is my big issue, it is so easy to consume a ton of calories drinking beer.
