Since 1970, Americans have incraesed their caloric intake by 25%. Now up to an average of 2,700 calories every day which translates to extra pounds. This extra weight costs the nation as much as $93 billion more in annual medical bills and taxpayers bear half the cost.

wow

2700 calories?! That's enough to feed TWO people, quite well.

The US government is actually considering taxing junk food like alcohol and smokes...I'm all for it. Though, I doubt it will make a huge difference. If nothing else, people will make the connection between a "sin tax" type policy and the food they eat and think twice. I know a lot of people who quit smoking when it got too pricy, and they're better for it.

I used to be a fatty, and have since become a nutrition nut.
Blame weight watchers for warping me ;)

Re: wow

I think there's a healthy medium. There's nothing wrong with indulging, it's just a matter of indulging in extremes.

Same as I think abstianing in extremes can be negative for someone. *shrug*

Re: wow

You're right! It's all about moderation.
Don't give up ice cream--just take note of the intended serving size. Cutting things out completely is WAY too tempting, diets don't work that way.
