The Data Shows Otherwise

Most American’s do not think they are fat. That can’t be farther from the truth.

According to a new poll conducted by Gallop, 63 percent of respondents did not think they are overweight. When compared with data from the National Center for Health Statistics, it looks like American need a wake up call: 69% of Americans over 20 years old are considered overweight or obese.

I'm pretty sure it's not a uniquely American brand of denial... chuckle.gif

It's almost as if it's a mass denial situation or are the somewhat obese comparing themselves to the morbidly obese and thinking they are just fine? blink.gif

I'm 6-2, 220 lbs, and have a 34 waist.
Been like this for more than 40 years.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

its the food there.. its awful.. the portions are just ridiculous, it encourages people to keep eating or take it home and finish it off.. less is more.. there is no such thing as a doggy bag here.. you could ask to have your leftovers taken home but it would be pretty embarrassing to do so, unless it was a pizza..

About a million years ago, someone told me to eat breakfast fit for a King, lunch fit for a Prince, and to give my supper to someone I didn't like.

Did you have scrambled dinosaur eggs for breakfast when you were young?

that is not only the best policy for good eating habits and body health, but it is also really good for the brain. It has an effect on both the alpha and theta waves.

I do all that in reversed order, not eating much in the morning, small lunch and a huge dinner. chuckle.gif I still am the same size and weight as in high school.

i find i put weight on around my stomach, no where else of course.. grrr.. so i have been eating dinner around 6pm, even 530 if its possible and not snacking after that.. maybe a healthy grain biscuit with unhulled tahini spread on it.. and its really working well.. i have a big breakfast and eat whenever i want during the day.. for me going to bed with a full stomach and snacking late is the culprit.. when i was 20 it was fine.. now im 22 not so fine.. (im 40) 13.gif

Fat storage around the waist is the worst for you too. I store excess fat there as well and I don't like that one bit. 13.gif So I try to not expand so much. I eat quite a lot of fat though, but no grains or sugar and that seems to do the trick. I think it's important for women to get plenty of fat. 13.gif
