As funny as this photo is…the topic is not. Americans or I should say people are eating themselves into early graves. Instead of trying to figure out to how fix the problem, we ignore and set new standards. “Fat is beautiful is a lie” It will never be beautiful. Stop eating all day long, eat healthier, don’t always finish whats on your plate. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. walk instead of drive. Many alternatives to the problem. American calorie counting schemes are a grand failure. After using them for one year, 95% of their users are heavier than before they started. Why are Americans so much heavier now than when they were first settling this country? Why are Americans so much heavier than Chinese, Italians, Africans, and Spanish people?
