How do you guys really feel?
I hate to say, but the utter and complete lack of personal responsibility in the US makes me laugh (not that we're all that far behind). But Jee-zus people. It's bad food. You know it's bad for you. You made the choice. If you subsequently choose to go home, flake out on the couch and eat bon-bons (did anyone else find Peggy Bundy hot?
) then your ass, along with the rest of you, will get fat. A lawsuit is going to fix that? Nuh-uh. Anyone else think it's a coincidence the same lead lawyer for all the tobacco lawsuits is the same lead lawyer going after fast food now? Guess where his next targets are going to be? Candy/pop/chocolate and then going screeching back to the early twentieth century, booze. Be patient, we're busily denormalizing everything else anyway. Unless you're a prude, you'll be unhappy
I must say though, there is a dramatic difference in size between Canadian and US supersize. Back in October when I was in Cincy, I wandered about for two hours searching for a Walmart. I had flown out early and skipped lunch. so I was pretty hungry. I supersized.
Holy **** people.
You could have fed a family of four on the fries.
You could have drowned a medium sized dog in the drink AND free refills?!
Bide your time. Within a couple of years you'll find that the Atkins diet, while effective, has detrimental effects on both your kidneys and your cholesterol (oops, what was that about heart disease?). The acrylamide that the loony, research dollar hungry researchers are whining about is a negligible factor. Oh yeah, transfats? So, people have been eating donuts for 100+ years or so and suddenly their bad for you?
Nope, the reality is that we eat too much of the crap (actually, too much period, portion sizes are huge these days), not enough good stuff and most people think exercise is walking from the car to the house. Sorry, but it ain't that hard to figure out. Ask your grandma, she knows. Too much of anything will kill you.
