There are more fat people in Oregon than anywhere I've ever been.

Nope, sorry but Mississippi is and has been the fattest state for a while. They also have the highest illiteracy, highest infant mortality, and just about every other bad category.

Was walkin along a strip center the other day and noticed this fat fucker was followin me every step of the way. After I'd passed a cuppla places I decided I'd had enough and spun around to see WTF he was followin me for, but .... he miraculously disappeared (*facepalm*)

The skinniest countries are the hungriest countries. It has nothing to do with will power it is simply abundance, if Americans were starving like so many other countries in this list we would be at the bottom of it as well. We may be there before long but until then I will continue to eat.

You are so wrong jgoins. It's a question of culture and habits. Countries like Sweden and Norway and Denmark (where I live) are rich countries. The average person living in these countries is much richer than the average American.
In the countries mentioned it is out of fashion to be fat, and pupils are tought about dietary habits in school. Healthy food is a big issue here.
I live in the center of Copenhagen, and here you se everybody riding a bike and in the evening most people exercise.
We have got the time and energy - probably because we are not poor.
Generally rich people don't tend to be fat. They can afford healthy food and perhaps they do not need to eat for comfort as much as poor people.

Heheh. JG is usually wrong about something. Kim obviously saw his reflection in the strip mall windows and that was a good joke, in case nobody else got it. Students are taught in the US about health and diet too and that has been more of a focus in recent times. You are absolutely correct Seeker, it is about customs and more than anything what a person learns from their family and friends (same thing really). Schooling can only penetrate so far. It's better than nothing though. You can try to educate people till you're blue in the face but they inevitably will gravitate to what they are most accustomed to despite facts, figures and education. Do not try to take away bacon from Woberto or hot peppers from Kim or beer from everyone else. At least peppers are medicinal. Well, so is beer for that matter... but it is fattening.

Reachin for my peppers and you'll draw back a nub monty

I just created my newest favorite snack: Chipless Nachos

Take peppers (your choice of faves), cut into strips and place on a cookie sheet in the oven (or save juice and use the toaster oven) and broil with insides facing up for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Turn 'em over to finish broiling the skin sides for another 5-7 minutes till they're kinda dried out. Cover with your favorite shredded cheese, sprinkle with crushed red or black pepper and a dash of seasoned salt & pop back in until the cheese browns.

Most ovens just have a broil setting that turns on the upper burner on constantly with no temp control and run from around 500-550f. I like peppers ok but it ain't religion to me.

Another good reason to save the electricity and use a much more efficient toaster oven anyway.

Has anyone ever checked the prices of "healthy" foods? It is much cheaper to eat ground beef than it is to eat anything else. When one is on a fixed income grocery shopping is all about cheaper choices not what is fattening. The only thing lower income people can to is reduce the amount of intake which I have done but when you are using every minute trying to find the money to survive it is difficult to get in an exorcise regime to help. Granted some in the US are just lazy but a large part of us are just trying to survive and are not overly concerned about being overweight.

When my father was born in 1908 the average life expectancy for a man was about 47 years. We've added 30 years to that and he actually lived to the age of 80. Maybe this is yet another way of nature trying to correct something we've fiddled around with.

It never ceases to amaze how full of shit some people can be. I think that's part of what keeps me here. Hamburger is neither cheap nor unhealthy. Remember the balanced meal thing? Didn't anyone pay attention in health classes?

Well here at least hamburger is cheaper than other meats or fish per serving and not so healthy because of the fat content. Chicken is pretty cheap but I can't get 3 meals out of one chicken like I can one package of ground beef and the Navy ruined chicken for me by leaving the pin feather on it when it is fried so can't really eat it any longer.

FOS? What dat.

Staple items at the casa: ground chuck (turned into taco meat for wicked and varied applications), boneless, skinless chicken (grilled, baked or chunked in the crock pot with varied veggies for stew), pork chops/BACON! (endless possibilities for consuming these porkulus treats), jalapenos, serranos, cayennes and the occasional ghost chiles (the combinations with all the above are myriad), coffee/tea (MUST HAVE CAFFEINE!) and soon to be comin from the garden ... fresh veggies galore.

Do I eat healthy? Who gives a shit, I eat for taste, not longevity. One absolute given is none of us will ever make it outta here alve. I'll likely be drug out by my heels clutching a handful of peppers in one hand with cigs and my lighter in the other rock on

BTW, FOS = Full of Shit and waddn really headed your way JG grinning

For me eating healthy isn't about anything other than feeling good while I'm here. The older I get the more it seems to matter. I'm not ancient yet but old enough for things like that to make a difference.

BTW, the FOS was probably directed at me.

Eating healthy is not all it's cracked up to be. Why would I want to live longer if I am going to be miserable the rest of my life? The other day my heart doctor told me I need to lower my cholesterol by laying off carbs and dairy products. I have already given up drinking and cussing, why should I give up my other pleasures. I gave up drinking because I can't afford it and cussing because I am intelligent enough to think of more words. I will sooner or later have to give up smoking because I can't afford it much longer but I will not give up my eating pleasures just to live a couple of years longer.

I'll problee give up cussin about the same time I give up exchangin oxygen. Even with an extensive vocabulary some of those "special words" just push a point to levels otherwise hard to reach.

Here's one I penned many years ago called


Words can and do flow from the tip of my pen :

Words can be nimble,
Words can be thick,
Words can make you happy,
Words can cut to the quick,
Words can be brilliant,
Words can be your candlestick

Words can be your measure, your meter, or rhyme
Words can assemble, resemble, be contemptable, even criminal

Words can give power,
Words can destroy,
Words can annoint you,
Words can be toys
Words can do most anything

Words, words, words
Hold the keys to release
Give vocalization, prominence, externalize
That which stirs in our souls

Well, as I said, I think it is more about feeling better while we ARE here. I m not particularly interested in a longer life as much as I am in feeling better for as long as I'm here. I have had to adjust my diet a bit here an there for that. It's not a huge deal. I'm not overweight so I'm not particularly concerned about that issue either. I just want to feel good. Like everybody else wants to.

As a general rule I feel pretty good most all the time and I seldom ever get sick. Aside from my regular checkup with my heart doctor, I never have to see a GP and haven't in over 5 years. I don't get colds or other illnesses and I attribute that to my diet, I eat anything even candy I dropped in the dirt. I never shy away from germs which has increased my immunity to many things. The last time I saw a regular doctor was when I quit smoking for 2 years after my heart surgery. I was getting sick all the time back then and when I started back to smoking I haven't had to see the doc since. I may not live more than 5 more years or I might live for another 30 but as long as I can still function normally then I will be happy. It really doesn't matter because aliens are coming on Dec. 21 to take us all home anyway.

I meant in general. I don't join things either, no blame there. What I meant is, do you actually try to find out more information about something before you form an opinion about it? I know a lot of info is shit out there but it's better than nothing, and I think people in the US are generally ill-informed, form opinions and make judgements based on virtually NO valid information, only misinformation, hearsay and similarly baseless opinions of others.
