Big Food Gets the Obesity Message

Big Food Gets the Obesity Message, according to the NY Times.

By this, they mean that George Washington University Law Professor John Banzhaff's utterly meritless suits against major food corporations have cowed the coporations. Other than the fact that it's disgusting that the corporations have rolled over for this noxious, fat, muddle-brained law professor, it's embarassing that they accept his argument that we aren't responsible for what we stuff into our faces.

Now they are going to give us what we need to eat, not what we want to eat.

Hey, here's a news flash.

If you are fat, it's most likely your own friggin' fault. It's because you don't do a couple simple exercises - push aways, plus anything else you care to do.

That's right, I Omnibus Bill, am telling you something you didn't know: if your ass is fat, it's because probably because you spend too much time sitting on it, and not enough time moving it around.

"Holy Smokes, Bill" you say; "I never imagined. You mean all I have to do to not be obese is..."

Yep, that's right. Eat less, and get off your fat f***in ass. Do it regularly. Daily even. Break a sweat, for chrissakes.

Try a diet. Atkins works for a start; knock off a quick 20 and the exercise seems a lot easier. Hit the gym. Make some time. I've found that working out an hour per day reduces the amount of sleep I need by about 90 minutes. I get up at 5:30, go to bed around 11:30 or midnight most nights.

Did I mention that I've lost about 40 pounds in the last 6 months? It just comes from eating better and working out. Nothing special. Strangely, just like getting fat, losing the weight didn't have anything to do with McDonalds, either.
