    Obese 6 year old kids need to go on diets and learn about eating healthy.

    Because of crap American eating habits, Dutch and other people from northern europe stand in average 3 to 4 inches taller than people here. For the first time in history, Americans are getting shorter.

    I see no problem with it. Childhood obesity is a major problem. Last week I was at my sons middle school orientation and it was unbelievable how many really fat kids are at that school. One look at the parent with them and it was no wonder. Easily half the kids in his grade were over weight. I felt kind of bad for him, as they were in the hallway practicing the combination on their lockers, which are about 6 inches wide, on either side of my son were 2 kids his age but twice his size. Their size made it impossible for him to even see his locker much less access it.

    Another thing, why why why do women especially, feel it is OK to be out in public in their pajamas or even sweat pants. You are meeting your child's teachers and principal. Wouldn't you think you would want to make a better first impression.

    the only problem I see with it is that a "diet" is intended to be a temporary state of being

    the better way to handle this is to examine what a healthy body is supposed to look like and how to eat healthy and have a healthy level of activity without labeling it a "diet"

    yes there are too many fat kids, but also too many girls starving themselves because they are bombarded with the images of stick thin models in all their magazines

    It seems that since I was in school to now it has gone from one extreme to another. While I agree that there are still girls who starve themselves to be super skinny, I think that the number of fat chicks has increased dramatically.

    You are right, a diet usually means a temporary fix unless it is refereed to "eating a healthy diet" as a lifestyle.

    I see so many overweight kids at my kid's schools, it really breaks my heart. I can't imagine that these kids do not get harassed. On the other hand, there are so many it has almost become socially acceptable to be obese. In this day and age of being politically correct, it's like the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about because it might hurt someone's feelings so parents don't say anything. Like most things though, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.

    I once read that you should never make any food off limits since it will only cause someone to want it more but you should promote that there are foods that should be eaten in limited quantities while other foods you can have as much as you want. It's about giving the body the fuel it needs to make it be healthy. Unfortunately, with the economic situation being what it is, the foods that are terrible for you are so much cheaper than the healthy foods. I about died when I bought eggs the other day. They have gone up a good 30-40%. Whole grain bread is at least twice the price as white. The leaner cuts of ground beef are 30-40% more than just plain hamburger. It is crazy expensive to feed a family the right kinds of food.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Everything in this country used to be cooked in lard and bacon grease.

    It isn't as much the food as the lack of physical exertion that is causing obesity in my opinion.

    Growing up, I never once heard my father say on the farm "Mark, it's too hot today, let's not work."

    Yet now I hear all the time how it is too hot to play outside. Are you fucking kidding me?

    Edit: BTW, Maggie is a fat ass, she needs to quit eating Oreos and maybe go outside and run around a little bit.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    This is so true. Hamburger Helper doesn't cost shit, but some nice lean meat and fresh vegetables and fruit? Bloody hell!

    Yeah, but Hamburger Helper is damn easy to make when I got four hungry boys to feed.

    Ha, Amen. Back in my early 20's i would do that a couple times a week, literally eat the whole thing. With a side salad. After chugging a few tall boys. I probably wouldnt survive the night if i did that now.

    What has become of President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, and The Food Pyramid? That's all I remember having as a kid. Captain Kangeroo sure as hell didn't give a fuck what we were eating as we watched him every morning.

    We ate the Hamburger Helper, PBJ's and Pop Tarts, but like others have said... we went outside and got jiggy with the activity's
