Well, Gbaji says that "nutrition" means to just shove them full of whatever the fuck we have laying around just so they don't die in the streets so he's probably right. Gbaji's always right when he's defining words for us in ways that make no sense on the surface, but I'm certain that it's just... obvious?



It is estimated that this % has no quantifiable impact on whether or not schools should be the ones required to handle the diets of children. Especially when healthy options exist presently. This number does signify however that Americans in general either,

A. Haven't got as much time to prepare healthy meal choices and instead opt for quicker meals, be they fast food, or microwaveable meals in a box. This is symbolic of the current economical situation where families often work varying shifts, or multiple jobs, just to keep a roof over their heads, clothes on their back, and hopefully food on the table.

B. Are to lazy to care for themselves, and opt to have food made ready to eat, from similar sources to the above.

While it is unfortunate that Americans are getting fatter, the onus to change shouldn't be placed on the government, it should be placed on the people. If a parent wants their kids to eat a salad at lunch then they should send their kid with salad, or hope the kid makes the proper choice in their eating habits when getting food from a cafeteria.

Hey don't paint me as a piece of sh*t. I think that eating right starts at home. If all a kid sees is MCD's and Pizza then obviously they will think of that as good food. The issue lies in education of good/bad food, at home and in school. Money i probably better spent telling kids why eating the chicken fingers is probably better than eating the mexifries.

(i m also hoping i missed a joke, because 25% of americans being to fat to join the army is an arbitrary number.)

The western world is fat? Watch Wall-E, its a clever story that portrays well what automation is doing to us. We are getting fatter because we have made our lives easier. The Automobile, Fast Food, Debit, Computer/TV/Phones. We have made the world so accessible, and it requires us less effort physically, and mentally to do stuff. The world is getting fat and dumb the further we advance our obsession oh having our menial tasks completed for us so we have more free time to do nothing.

This is what happens when you cut spending on technology. We should be getting our food Jetson style by now.

This morning on the radio was a story about chocolate milk. Many schools are cutting it from the lunch menus because of the sugar. Apparently runners and other endurance athletes, however, have taken to drinking chocolate milk as a recovery beverage after work-outs.

Chocolate milk works the same as any sports drink, like Gatorade, except it has far far less salt.

What's wrong with chocolate donuts for breakfast?

I made pancakes for breakfast a lot for my kids - with lots of different fillings and toppings. They often requested chocolate chip pancakes. My rule was no choc chip pancakes on school days - I'd only make them on weekends. I don't know why. It just seemed like the motherly thing to do.

Donuts for breakfast aren't going to get you diabetes, there's far more to it than that. Besides, maybe the donut was made with whole wheat flour instead of white and maybe the
chocolate dip was made with splenda. At that point, it would actually become a recommended breakfast item.

Dunkin Donuts, chocolate covered or no, are exceedingly high in transfats. They also taste like crap.

There's a hot dog joint across the river from my office. They also make donuts. Their molasses donut is possibly one of the seven wonders of the world.

Good thing it's on the other side of the river.

I'm not convinced splenda is a healthy alternative. Chocolate doesn't need to be made with a ton of sugar to be tasty. Cheap chocolates are mostly sugar and fats though.

Yeah, those people are fat fucks. But for most people, a chocolate covered doughnut isn't really that horrible for breakfast. Treats, in moderation, can be good for you. And my personal belief is that a 'bad' breakfast is better than none at all.

That's why you get the ones with the bacon on them. All that fat should help slow absorption of the sugar, right?

I'd guess that non-diabetics have a fairly low blood sugar level after waking, and a small spike might be a good thing. I don't think eating a plate of rock candy would be a good thing, but a doughnut or two with some chocolate frosting wouldn't be horrible. Personally, I typically eat oatmeal, just to help keep cholesterol down.

Actually, you're supposed to get two things for breakfast: a quick complex carb fix to wake you up (best in the form of an apple or whole wheat toast) and a slower protein/fat fix to last you until lunch (eggs and bacon!) Simple carbs and fat without the protein are asking for a post carb crash a few hours after breakfast, and next thing you know you're noshing on a snickers bar to keep going.

I had to actually cut sugar from my coffee because I was crashing at 10 am every day.
