I think obesity has more to do with an increasingly sedentary lifestyle couple with the nutrient void pseudo-food being pumped out by commercial agriculture corporations. A recent NPR article concerning the origin of chicken nuggets (now that they will be processed in China) illuminates this matter. The truth is, who cares, chicken nuggets are not food. This applies to soda and the unlimited list of other garbage that lines your grocery store aisles. As far as fast food goes, if it comes in a bag from a drive-through, it's probably not something you should be putting in your mouth.
Yep. Not that I'm in peak physical condition or anything, but fortunately I don't really have a sweet tooth. (I'm just old, and sit on my ass in front of a laptop all day.. And fucking love burritos..) There are some things that I'll indulge and have a pepsi with - pizza for one, and the gloriously terrible for you kind of Chinese take-out for another. I don't eat them very often, but when I do it's one of the few times I'll actually have a soda.Soda is literally the devil when it comes to unhealthy weight gain. Not fucking worth it. Barring one or two occasions where it would be terribly rude to not accept it and a couple mixed drinks involving it (although I usually go diet on those) I haven't touched it in 20 months. I see people pounding back the 20 oz things, which is like 250 calories and think,
DO YOU FUCKING KNOW HOW FILLING 250 CALORIES OF CHICKEN IS BRO? 250 CALORIES IS LIKE A BOWL AND HALF OF OATMEAL WITH A PINCH OF SUGAR AND CINNAMON WHICH IS ALSO FILLING AS FUCK.
