No wonder North Americans are so fat!!!

A friendof mine just returned from Thailand after 19 days....

He said the biggest thing he didn't see..was overweight people.(he said FAT -I didn't..a harsh word as far as I am concerned)..anyway, he kept emphazing it. I am not 100% sure about all the statisitics, but I have heard this concerning a few other countries also.

It is a shame of the state we are in physically as a country..all we need to do is look around at the young adults..and it is not their fault. It is what they are taught.

So, anyway..I am going to do my bes to help educate everyone I can about things like this...Deep Fried Coke..what the heck! ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

Thirdly, not ALL americans are that self-absorbed but they do know a thinly veiled bashing attack when they see it. And you, sir are full of thinly and not so thinly veiled bashing attacks.



I am done with this thread and I am done with you and your circular arguements.



Get off the crack. Your first point was the point I was making.



Secondly, if I meant Americans then I would have said Americans not North Americans. Canada has an obesity problem as well.



Any nutrionist will tell you that North America has an obsesity problem. I guess they are all bashing America.



Lastly. Buh-bye.

Laura_I According to my BMI, I am close to being underweight. My husband's body fat is 7%. We own a deep fryer. Damn it's so delicious.

JC and FWIW.



Thank you for your concern! I actually have IBS so that has something to do with it. I don't know if I have ever had my gallbladder checked out, my guess would be no. I will keep it in mind though. I wonder why high fat foods effect the gallbladder?

I'm also quite familiar with people who say "North American" while meaning those specifically from USA.



Your post #25 verifies to me that you truely meant the latter and now you're back-peddling to try to pretend that's NOT what you mean at all.



Nice try but no dice.



Uhm, no. Post #25 was made because it seemed like only Americans were protesting the obese label.



Secondly, why would I try to back pedal? You think I am afraid of people here or I take back what I said? Cause I'm not and I don't.

I cannot even imagine how fried corn tastes.....
10-24-2006 11:03 AM
4EverGrounded Must... resist... urge.... to.... deep fry..... corn on the cob....



Aw, crap Tame. NOW look what you've done. *runs like the wind to find her deep-fat fryer and her secret stash of corn on the cob*

Tame Fried corn on the cob = bestest food ever.

Keep in mind that obesity rates really do not tell the whole story. Part of the "alarming" increase of obesity in the US coincides with the changing of the standards. According to the BMI, I am borderline obese, although my apperance would indicate otherwise.



I might add that you mention Europe's obesity rates are that of the US 10 years ago, but they are increasing at a faster rate than the US. They will catch up soon enough, and then we can finally put this nonsense to bed.



I also agree with OA and Remilard - weight had much more to do with lifestyle than just food.

I used eat butter when I was a kid... and lemons too.

Dirty Martini People sit around a lot more now, too. A LOT more.



And drive 1/2 mile to the store, instead of walking there.

Aimra I have to add. With eating out more and more people need to educate themselvs about nutrition. You can easily eat healthy while eating out if you just try.
