No, the gubbimint did not make you fat.
You did, dumbass.
That one looks incorrect to me. Aren't the fruit and veggies
supposed to be on the bottom layer of the food triangle?
As somebody speaking from experience... no, the gov't did not lie to you and force you to become fat. And no, BS fad diets and pills will not make you slim. If you are overweight, unless you have a medical condition or a metabolic problem... the fault is yours, pure and simple. And the good news is - it's an easy problem to cure. Do the American/Canadian Food Guide and you're in the home stretch.
The hardest part is getting started. The other part is that you have to think differently too and look at food only as fuel. My favourite stunt is to graze while surfing the net and watching vids - my computer is as full of crumbs and food as it is with electronics, HAR HAR HAR! GAH!
The last thing is exercise and physical fitness. I still have to address that one myself. We'll be out on Dawg Patrol shortly - you lot keep your hands where we can see them and behave yourselves - we will be watching you VERY carefully! Filthie is watching you! HAR HAR HAR!
Have a great Tuesday!
