Gee I dunno.
Why are bongs so fat and disgusting, along with being total cucks?
I've made the same wage since 2001. It's literally 1/3 of my income to eat healthy, 1/2 of my income to pay my mortgage, and the rest for insurance and a car.
Some people choose to eat poorly so they can go on vacation.
if you are poor in america. You can get food from food banks. Food banks largely have non perishable food which is mostly salty, prosessed and high in fat.
Also, we are not the fattest by any means anymore
same here, work for indians. They don't give raises to anyone except other indians. Shit sucks, getting ready to quit. Last time I had a raise was about 6 years ago when I had a white woman for a boss
by all measures they are.
It's %100 intentional
Bush ensured that all Americans that are not rich are stupid as fuck (see common core).
Their cheap food is made with chemical bi products that corporations would normally have to pay to dispose of. Human Chemical waste disposal units (read ingredients on image, illegal to eat most those chems in my country )
yeah, better be careful with all those chemicals listed
In American society, many types of food consumers choose to eat cause their bodies to react in a way negative to their overall health. Rather than dealing with this epidemic with sensible food portions and nutrient rich foods, a movement (if you could call it that) called Body Positive was introduced. This allows these group of people with an unhealthy and an unrealistic idea of what is healthy to thrive and influence others. Whilst not being required to acknowledge their consistent personal demise and self harm, the complacency and sometimes positive outlook on their choice in obesity is criticized by medical professionals, garbage men and many other reasonable people.
I think that would fit under my argument that people are just addicted. Sure you can eat rice beans and chicken everyday, but most Americans just can't go without their big macs.
White Rice is a carb. It has zero nutrition and unless you work off that carb, it turns straight to sugar. Also, bean are also high in carbohydrates.
So, what you basically said was that sugar, sugar, and chicken are not expensive. Furthermore, you know what chicken is the cheapest? skin on dark meat chicken.
Wouldn't know. Live in the glorious state of Colorado with the lowest obesity rates in the country.
I am about to get some McD's down the road, though because fuck you this country is awesome that's why
6'1, 170lbs here.
Honestly OP, do you think that EVERY American is overweight, ugly, and stupid?
I don't believe EVERY Muslim is a terrorist, or EVERY black is a nigger, so why do you give in to THIS stereotype? Is it because you are jealous of our Democracy, our Government and how things are run here? Do you want to move here because of our superior Legal system? Because if you want to move here, we would welcome you in open arms. Not everyone here is as awful as your media makes us out to be.
America is #1, why don't you 3rd world europigs cuck yourselves more for the rapefugees, faggots?
Can't wait until the muslimes bomb all of your major cities.
exercise is much less useful then eating healthier food. take something vigorous like pushups. If you do pushups for 30 minutes a day. you will only burn around 240 calories which is less then a salad at panera bread. Most people would rather just not eat.
you have never worked out a day in your life so dont dismiss it because it sounds hard. nobody does 30 mins of pushups. you do reps. do 20 then rest and do another 20. repeat as much as you feel you need. also i was thinking cardio for the fatties. pushing up 400lbs with flabby arms is not gonna happen.
Once you get going your brain starts releasing them good endorphin's. shits great. makes you want that burn.
Ok stop saying that junkfood is cheaper in the US and that's why people are fat. Just no. 1 happy meal might be cheaper, but 1 happy meal 3x a day won't make you fat, 10 happy meals will get you to this state of obesity, and for the price of all that junkfood they can easily afford healthy food.
trips don't lie
the point is that its not worth it. If you had to pick between cutting out food, vs spending an hour or so a day everyday doing mindless exercise. You are going to pick the cutting out of food or reduced caloric food because most people in america who are overweight also work long hours and have to dedicate more of their time to other activities because they can not afford to have services or other people do them. This is why people tend to gain weight after they have children and why the poor tend to weigh more then the wealthy. Its not rocket science.
nothing wrong with carbs if you are going to use the glucose created within a short period. The problem is with the portions most will eat, their body will not use all of the available energy created and thus store it as fat.
What's funny is we're not even the fattest country anymore. Britbongs and mexicans are both fatter.
Serious answer though, America is all about speed. We want food now. We don't care if it's healthy, take my money and give me food. Nobody cooks anymore and the average person simply can't be asked to read nutritional labels, much less understand them.
In the end it's not the carbs that'll make you fat, it's the surplus of calories, whether this is protein or carbs it doesn't matter. You can get fat off fish and skinny off potatoes.
Thats why they put laxatives into the food, so it can be shat out. Without laxatives those chemicals would take months to pass
Its easy to do if you have an extra hour in your day of leisure time. The less leisure time, the less likely you are going to spend it exercising. Are you brain damaged or just some dickhead who is like "I LIKE TO EXERCISE! IF OTHER PEOPLE DON'T LIKE EXERCISE AS MUCH AS ME THEY JUST DON'T KNOW HOW GREAT EXERCISE IS!"
Similarly to vegans, people who complain about smokers, people who don't do drugs or alcohol, people who complain about coffee. You basically are just trying to dictate your likes on everyone else and not everyones brain works the same way your brain works.
I like to program, How would you like me to sit you down for an hour a day and teach you lisp and emacs and when you complain I just call it an excuse and explain how great it is for your brain and your potential earnings?
Police officers are by definition terrorists FYI
the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.
the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.
a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.
Shit ameribro, you need to sort something out for yourself. Living like that is going to put you in the ground a young man. Start looking for another gig. Don't just quit. It's easier to look for a job when you have a job, as they say. Don't get stuck in that rut man.
Most people are stupid. Roughly 10-20% of adults can't read, that's in every first world country.
Throw in fast food and microwavable meals and a culture that enforces "go go go eat eat eat" and you get a bunch of fatties. I'm assuming the same thing happened in England. Though Mexicans should be able to cook....their food is probably just too good.
i smoke, drink and do copious amounts of drugs. still go to the gym. coders also go to the gym. its part of being an adult. unless you want to look disgusting ofcourse. nobody likes going to the gym at first. its later the rewards come.
And on that programming. i have started teaching myself that. Im only doing basics now but have to start somewhere. got them if/thens down. The fact you got angry tells a lot.
I'm not fat, I just don't eat much so I'm not fat, but its just simple math as to why people don't exercise.
Humans weigh advantages and disadvantages. The cost of exercising (doing something you don't want to do) is not worth the reward of exercise (a couple hundred of calories).
If you LIKE exercise, then you would exercise in the first place and not be fat because you already like it.
So, if you are trying to get people who don't like exercise to exercise for their health. You have to lower their perceived cost.
One of the costs of exercise is that it takes time. So people who have more leisure time will see exercise as less expensive then people who have less because the cost is lower another way is to make exercise more entertaining thusly minimizing the perceived cost. However, both of those also require money which then is relative dependent on the persons available capital.
Hence, the less money you have, the less you are going to exercise and bad food is cheaper then good food. Naturally, you end up with fatter poor people and skinnier wealthy people.
Corn is subsidised by taxpayers in the US to the point where it can go to market for a price cheaper than it costs to produce. There's your problem. Vote for someone who is willing to eliminate this subsidy, move it to broccoli or send the niggers back to Africa.
I'm not fat because I don't really eat much or crave to eat. I'm frustrated because you are retarded who cant perceive other peoples perspectives outside of your own. There is a lot of shit you don't like to do because it does not interest you. Having someone try to force you into be interested in something does not make people interested. You just end up being one of THOSE people.
Basically, you are little better then a person trying to force someone to watch MLP because its your thing.
traditionally fat ment prosperous and skinny ment poor. switched somewhere.
Again tho you are just making excuses. go for a walk. thats free. start jogging maybe. also free. i dont get your angle of costs. surely it costs more to sit around the house eating up your foood and using utilities and the like.
Fastfood might be unhealthy but is not what makes you fat. Pigging out on the fastfood is what makes you fat. You could easily live off McD's burgers n fries and stay slim, if you don't eat in a calorie surplus.
not all costs are financial. Time is a cost. Jogging and walking take more time and offer little rewards.
Take cigarettes for example, cigarettes offer an immediate reward. Nicotine. People tried to educate people of the dangers of cigarettes (cancer, which is a cost) but since the award of nicotine is immediate and the cost of cancer is long term. People smoke. If cigarettes immediatey caused cancer. No one would smoke. Hence the most effective way to get people to quit smoking was literally raising the cost of cigarettes. People have to reassess their desires for money vs nicotine and cigarette consumption goes down.
Although, many people who seek the relief of cigarettes also do so because they have more burdens and use it as a form of self medication. So cigarette taxes while benefiting the overall health of the nation also puts a burden on the poor.
That operation allows the user to use their heel as a joint instead of a knee when wearing an artificial leg, It's actually a really advanced operation when you think about it, attaching the ligaments ect. I'm not american though btw
>north of the wall
This is now a valid ruling against all of Scandinavia.
Nobody told me. I looked into obesity one day and all roads led to farm subsidies. Imagine if fruit and veg were subsidised instead of meat and dairy?
some of these need to be population and population-density adjusted.
it doesnt change the statement and stops people from going "but oh noe, mymerica is TOTALLY different from the EU, you CANNOT compare those"
People weigh their health against a metric of many things including yourself. Do you not drive since one of the most common killers in america is car crashes? Do you not smoke? Do you avoid diesel fumes? Do you put suntan lotion every time you go out on a sunny day? Do you make every girl you fuck get tested? do you not drink?
All of those can be hazardous to your health and most people, including yourself, do them. You have just found your thing and now you want your cross to carry.
tbh idk about u amerifats but here in britin (best country tbh) we 'ave a great shop called lidl where everything is sub-par quality but nigger cheap. all u amerifats are addictde 2 fast food SMH TBH
fuck off you fucking idiot JEW
Ben Garrison comes up with Good shit, he just speaks the truth so you fucking jews slander him.
>Jews religion tells them they must lie to non jews
>Baba Kamma 113a. Jews may use lies ("subterfuges") to circumvent a Gentile.
This feels so true.
I've got friends from all over the world, and it's only the American ones who are completely ignorant and just plain idiotic when it comes to anything outside of their home state.
Hate to stereotype yanky youth, but man, y'all are some amazing retards.
>Holy shit american kids have it bad.
As an American, I don't blame the government for my failures. That's a perfect example of the socialistic mentality that has served to bring this country to its knees. Instead, I take personal responsibility for my behavior. I don't eat that crap and George Bush (or whoever the hell that faggot said was to blame) doesn't force me to go to the center aisles of the grocery store. I eat what I want. It's just that I don't want to eat junk. And, contrary to some of the excuses in this thread, it's not that expensive. You can get a half-dozen avocados for the same price as a two-pound bag of Twizzlers. It's all about decisions.
I'm fit because I made it a part of my daily lifestyle. And if more people would replace their bad habits with good habits, instead of wasting time looking for someone to blame, we'd all be a lot better off.
The Brits are fat AF and there is fastfood fucking everywhere. I work there every year for 4 months, fucking fatasses everywhere in the UK and, as in the US, the fastfood is dirtcheap there and around every fucking corner
Also def not the best country. If I hear one more Brit say "YOU OK" or "SORRY" for no reason at all Im gonna punch them
Yeah, you're an adult. What if mommy is Jabba the Slut and your dad still hasn't come back after going to buy smokes 10 years ago.
How big is your ego, nigga said kids you retard.
that would probably result in the starvation of millions. We subsidize a lot, but we also feed most of the world. if we subsidized fruits and vegetables which are more perishable and not as fit for transport we would probably kill off a good quantity of the countries of the world.

As a 36 year old american man with a 28 inch waist it is hard as fuck to find pants that fit me properly without going to the boys section but then they are too short.
Fat people really slow everything down for the rest of us, whenever I go out there is almost always one causing problems.
Really lame that they can use medicare and things like that to get stomach staples and other unnecessary surgeries.
I'd kill a dozen fattys for a trip to the dentist or doctor, oh fuck
>Oh, I'm the retard?
>And blaming the government for poor parenting is intelligent
Well considering we've given them the job of teaching people and their best advice regarding food is the joke that is the food pyramid and that's only barely covered.....and additionally they don't regulate or punish junk food dealers. Yeah, it's partially their fault.
Plus, you don't have time to make healthy dinner since the culture is so fast paced. Get up for work 7 am work 8-9 hours traffic on the way home. Don't get in until 6pm. No time for that grocery store and then to go cook.
Don't make enough pay so you gotta work weekends too.
We don't get 30 hour work weeks and endless months of paid vacation.
I would rather have have 3 refugees than 1 fat mobility scooter burger.
For one thing it would take up 1/3 of the resources to maintain.
I lived off pizza, burgers, fries, you name it, for years as a student and never got fat. I even lost weight. How? I only had money to eat a meal once or twice a day along with 1/2 snacks (Snickers bar usually), drank diet sodas only, and walked around a little.
With multivitamin supplements I was just fine.
Stop blaming fastfood for the lack of control. Stuffing your face all day long gets you fat not junkfood.
I live in the midwest and work at an international grocery store and there are tons of low cost non-chemical healthy things to eat.
A fast food meal is like the cost of 3-5 days of food to me and fast/junk food always seemed gross to me.
I enjoy asking the immigrants how they prepare the wild things they buy from me and trying new foods all the time.
Also I don't date women that eat fast food or drink soda, shit is gross
are you jew or just some fucking sheep that can't think for themselves?
Right? I'm 6'5" and I fucking can't find jeans that fit and never know if I buy a shirt if I'm getting an XL or a Walmart XL (which is a 3xl or some shit now).
...and places keep adapting to fat fucks like it's inevitable that we all join on and start being whales
This has no source and has Syria above America.
I.E its total fucking bullshit.
You honestly think people in a war zone have enough food to be as fat as Amerifats? Ditto Palestine, Libya, Kuwait, Egypt and Iraq.

There is not much you can walk to in america since its assumed you will own a car in america. We do not clutter all our stores together like they do in the uk and such. Most places are miles away from each other. I live in a development and it is about 9 miles from anything that is not a house except maybe a gas station which is about 3 miles away.
>Plus, you don't have time to make healthy dinner since the culture is so fast paced. Get up for work 7 am work 8-9 hours traffic on the way home. Don't get in until 6pm. No time for that grocery store and then to go cook.
If you are so busy then where do you find the time to shove all that extra food in your gullet?
Well, like I said that's the socialistic mentality. Blaming others for your own failures. A little common sense goes a long way.
And, obviously, the food pyramid is outdated. It was created when people actually did physical labor. My job and most of the people I know work in offices and don't need anywhere near 11 servings of breads, cereals rices and pastas a day.
Use your own brain. It's there for a reason. You don't have to trust everybody who's in a position of power, even if you are a socialist.
The US southeast throws all of our averages off. The South is the dumbest and fattest part of the US by a fairly large margin.
Remove Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and parts of Georgia and Florida and the US is a smart, healthy country just like everyone else. Come to Denver, Seattle, Madison or Portland and our obesity rates are actually far lower than most of the world.
TLDR should have burned down the South when we had the chance
It depends where you are, some of us are pretty okay. I live where they're hot as hell and moderately smart. Not saying I'm any prize, but I've seen way worse down south and up north and... well, most places. So yeah, America is full of the worst people, for sure, but they're not EVERYWHERE.
Yeah this is your opinion because you live there, just like ISIS thinks Syria is paradise on Earth. The UK is far from being the best country. Fatasses everywhere in the UK too, for fucks sake, they are getting fatter and fatter man.
Also UK was nominated as the country with the most ugly citizens of Europe, I believe a congratulations is in order
Not true. We're very busy wife and kids etc. Work pace just as you described. The key is planning meals my wife does a great job. Pull some stuff out of the freezer so it's ready to cook when you get home and have a planned menu. Most meals take 20-30 minutes to make or the same amount of time you'd wait for a fat pill pizza or the trip to the fat food place.
I hate to be that guy, but I'm a Usonian and I am at like 5-7% body fat. Though, a LOT of those around me will truly opt for cheaper unhealthier options and don't exercise or really, do much of anything at all. I don't think that Americans are somehow the only group of people to do this though.
This list is bs. Germany on 56%?
I have friends studying statistics. Germany is currently on 38%.
It runs in Americans genetics.
You're only mad because we beat your pathetic lazy ass at the olympics ever year. If we're so fat, and so stupid, why are we STILL the only nation on earth to have landed on the moon? Why does only ONE of our citizens hold more gold medals than any man ever will in human history?
That's right. Because The United States fucking rules, and you're just some jealous little bitch who's probably living in a Third World, Communist shithole. Get fucked and go back to your mudhut.
It's not even an insight. It's just basic information.
This is food going into your body. If people aren't even smart enough to care about that, then they deserve whatever happens to them.
Honestly, I don't even know what you people are whining about. No one's ever told me what to eat or forced me to eat something since I was a child. And even then it was my parents, not some government or corporation or whatever.
If you have no carbs in your diet your body starts using fat for energy instead of glucose. It's more efficient, good for your health and mind, and most importantly....you can eat a shitload of bacon and cheddar cheese and it's healthy.
truth hurts bro
The number of overweight people in Germany has stagnated between 1998 and December 2011. 67.1% of all men between 18 and 79 are considered overweight with a BMI of 25 or greater.
Italy has surpassed Germany for having the fattest children in Europe. A survey in 2007 had Germany listed as the country with "the highest proportion of overweight children in Europe." However, despite dropping in the rankings, the number of truly obese children have doubled in the past decade. Germany also still has the most overweight adults in Europe.
Canadian here. You don't want Bernie unless you want to make things like they are in Canada. Taxes are absolutely stupid high and it's all about taking your hard earned money and pissing it away. It's very depressing anon. We pay well over 50% in tax.
So on my travels I met Americans who believed that all of Europe hated all of the US, and now I see why they believed that.
This is not true. We have seen enough of USA (because lets face it, you are literally everywhere) to know that not everyone there is fat, stupid, and lazy.
Nearly all of the Eupeans find Americans interesting, because...well..you are fucking everywhere and the movies we watch and the music we listen to comes from you, so when Europeans meet an American they are excited and have a million questions, we do not hate you and don't have the prejudices you think we have.
Also, I would like to add that none of the Americans I met on my travels (and I met a lot) were fat. Not toned, but far from fat, just average.
Ok pull your head out of your own ass, I know you love the smell of your farts but let's imagine you're Jack, a 6 year old boy.
Your mom, Fat Bitch, has no idea what to feed you or herself because she never learned about nutrition in public school and what she did learn was "lol carbs=energy=good 5 you".
So you, Jack the 6 year old, eat trash every day of your life. You do so until you're 18 and you're a fat miserable fuck with type 2 diabetes. Perhaps you, Jack, will have a difficult time switching to chicken breast and avocados after a lifetime of being denied information about food. Hell you may never even wake up to what you're doing to yourself until you're in your thirties or forties and already ruined.
meanwhile in austria
incredients for the cheese pizza I just had:
Here is the thing, while Britbong is a relatively fat country, the vast majority are healthy, and you have to look very hard to find the kind of landwhale you would easily find here
thats interesting, because I was pretty sure you guys did hate americans and avoid traveling to europe because of it. I mean, I watch some european tv shows and they do represent americans as fat idiots.
Dont fucking dare speak for all non americans you piece of shit. Especially since everything you are saying is fucking false, unless of course you're some little redneck bastard living in a barn somewhere listening to Elvis while saluting the confederate flag. Retard.
bullshit anti mc donalds propaganda. Uhhhh salad cost 5 bucks and hamburgers 1, that's why in the us everyone is fat
fucking bullshit. you got grociery stores, you can prepare your own food and it's as cheap and healty as you want it to be. Problem in the us is
a: you guys eat way too often in fast foods
b: you guys cook with too much oil/fat
c: you guys drink too many sugary beverages (i like coke cola like the next guy but that shit is 1/3 sugar)
d: your sweets and baked preparations are so goddamn full of fats its unbelievable. just take any facebook group about "baking", most of the recipes are about mixing peanut butter to oreos and chocolate sauce, which, again, everyone loves, even me, sometimes i indulge in something extremely caloric just because it tastes good, but fuck you guys, binge eating and shit.
Calm your tits, Dr. Bendydick Cuckabunch.
We're in agreement.
It's bad parenting. Not bad government.
You're talking about adults not knowing how to feed their children. That's their mistake. Not the government's. You can't spend eternity blaming the past for a future filled with failure.
This is the third time I'm using this response to fuck wads like you who can't read a whole post.
A majority of Americans are uninformed about what is a healthy lifestyle
Some are also addicted to shit food.
And wtf is anti mcdonalds propoganda. You seriously going to tell me you support that greasy deep fried chain.
this is right, but the public also need educating, because they're fucking retarded.
they eat too much sugar, it makes them hungrier sooner, and they snack and snack and snack.
if everybody passed the middle aisles in the grocery store, those middle aisles would begin to fill up with good shit instead.
how do you educate the fucktards?
No, no. Take the show "Modern Family" for example. We love that show. No fat, lazy, dumb people are being shown there. Same goes for the movies and Oscars, and we are smart enough to know that shows like "honey boo boo" or "jersey shore" represent a tiny flock of black sheep.
Don't fear traveling to Europe, you're interesting here lol
no one eats those baked foods. Its just food porn. If you want to know the average american meal growing up its like this. Usually a chicken breast, next to a vegtable, next to something else. Maybe au gratin potatoes.
It is literally the easiest shit for a mom to cook in a hury. I ate it as a kid, my friends ate it as a kid.
Most meals followed that formula. Veggie, Meat, and something else. Like Pork tenderlion, corn, and mashed potatoes. Fish (probably talapia), side salad, asparagus.
Occasionally you would just get Spaghetti with jar sauce with garlic bread (or a regular slice of white bread). That is really what the american diet usually is in an average household.
>A majority of Americans are uninformed about what is a healthy lifestyle
fucking kek if the majority of americans believe shit like deep fried butter is not what causes them to be fat as fuck, you guys deserve extinction.
>Some are also addicted to shit food.
seriously how many people are we talking about here? like half of the population in the us is obese, you mean to say that addiction is a relevant problem?
>And wtf is anti mcdonalds propoganda. You seriously going to tell me you support that greasy deep fried chain.
of course not but this bullshit right here
>Shit food: $1.00
>Healthy food: $15
is bullshit. blaming mc donalds for obesity is being desperate to blame someone that isn't themselves, you can exercise moderation and eat one burger a week you won't get morbidly obese. it's like saying that every smoker has lung cancer, smoking too much causes cancer.
Again, there are grocery stores, make your own food.
If so that's part of the problem
>wah healthy food is expensive
Because you grew up thinking cooking was boiling some pasta and heating a jar of sugar and vinegar to pour over it.
Well, I disagree.
I don't think it's a failure of the government. Their goal is to pander to their constituency. Their primary constituency segment is those who fund their political campaigns. And those who fund their political campaigns are the same people who run these corporations who put shit in the food in place of quality ingredients in an effort to boost their profit margins. They're getting rich. Good for them. That's not a failure. But I'm not getting diabetes just so their wallets can get fat.
It's basically the same reason nothing will ever be done about illegal immigration beyond political posturing. The U.S. citizens who hire illegals to boost their profit margins are the same people who fund political campaigns.
It's all bullshit and we don't have to buy into it.
Some of those things are good, though.
Having a certain degree of compliance and conformity in society is hugely beneficial. Could you imagine a place where people just ran around doing what they want, when they want. I kind of like the fact that schools teach kids how they should behave around others.
You can't just ignore their function because they're getting rich.
That'd like a surgeon who kills everyone he touches but always finds a way to blame it on someone else and get fat paid being a successful surgeon.
>A majority of Americans are uninformed about what is a healthy lifestyle
>Some are also addicted to shit food.
Complete bullshit retard, are you saying that 50% of a first world country does not have basic knowledge of eating healthy? No, it's just they lazy fuckers who refuse to admit that they are not living healthily,
>muh genes, cheap fast food
are all excuses. They just can't stand being hungry for a moment.
>the average american meal growing up
exactly. being so shit obese was never a problem back in the 70', or was well below what the situation is today. and you might be right, maybe that's food porn, though you believe nobody even tries that? And besides, the quality of the sweets has gone lost forever since a while now. take oreos, they wanted to make them vegetarian frendly, now the cream filling is fucking palm oil. something as simple as a cookie sandwhich with milk cream between is now baked heart clog.
American schools do not teach critical thinking at all, they'll punish for it though.
those aren't poor people food. That is average income american food. They make it because its super fast.
There are a lot of womens magazines and daytime tv is focused entirely on women which all advertise meals which are usually quick and easy while still seemingly normalish. Hence you can just throw some seasoning on some chicken breast, throw it in the oven. buy some bagged frozen veggies. Throw it in a pot for like 10 minutes, and just follow a box of au gratin potatoes that take like 10 minutes. You're basically done in 15 and you can go back to picking up your kid from soccer practice or doing the laundry or whatever it is moms do (fuck the neighbor, you know)
at least that was how we grew up in Gen X.
they replaced milk cream with an highly saturated fat. oreos nowadays do not contain milk if not by cross contamination so yes, as far as quality is concerned, they got worse.
I'm sure most Americans know that fair food like sticks of deep fried butter and deep fried candy bars aren't healthy, but we don't eat those regularly, that's literally a once a year indulgence
Also you can get addicted to eating, it's pretty simple, eating more had been good for all of evolution, so nature made eating feel good, but now that securing a meal just means picking out a pizza from the freezer aisle, pumped full of extra carbs and sugars, it's easy to see why you can get addicted to that

Don't like us? No problem.
At the end of the day, you are all American people. You follow our elections. You eat our food. You watch our movies and television shows. You wear our clothes. You copy our vernacular. You access American websites. You copy our Constitution and our laws. You read our books, ponder our art, use our weapons, drive our cars. The global economy is based on the US Dollar. Our military maintains bases on your soil. When our President speaks, you listen.
You are ALL American people.
No, healthy food is expensive in the US because we pretty much feed the world and subsidize farmers to sell it cheaply so you non-Americans can afford it. It means they have to charge Americans more.
>Single fillet of salmon: $7
>One potato: $1
>One onion: $2
>One bell pepper: $3
>One tomato: $2
and because trump is been asociated with italo-american mafia fundings and enterprises. 10 years ago he said that he would go for the republicans if he were to run for president, because he thought "all republican voters were so fucking stupid that he would say anything and they would even vote for him". So yeah, gool luck voting for someone who shits in your mouth and laughs at your back and you even kiss his boots for that.
wholly fuck, wtf
dude is wrong on more than half his statements.
Realistically American books and food aren't that popular, and your laws are copied from other countries more than anyone copies yours.
>Won WWII singlehandedly
Not sure if troll or just American
Protein + side veggies + side of carbs actually is the ultimate healthy combination. This is a healthy diet and most countries have the exact same. Cooking isn't meant to last hours, 20-40 mins is all it takes. This would never make anyone fat, it's quick but healthy, so I'm guessing it's the snacks they consume besides this dinner. Potato chips, chocolate, and so on.
