US Food Corporations Fuel Obesity




Hey every time the food mega-corporations enter a new developing country, everyone starts fattening up, and no people did not suddenly become lazy, gluttons, something is wrong with the food.

I try to stay away from all corporate food, but it isn't always easy, even I have to be ever-vigilant not to let any sneak in. I'm trying to completely give up diet soda, even allowing myself to drink it for meals out and acouple times a week I think is too much. I'm having a tough time with the food lately, all the good stuff goes poof first, and the prices are skyrocketing so high at our grocery stores.

  1. Why can't we find a way to export the Kardashian's?

    1. Probably because nobody else wants them either.

    2. The more processed something is, the less nutritious it is. Add various chemicals, including hormones given to livestock. Mass produce items that can be sold cheaply but have little nutritional value. Poor people will be forced to buy these items, and then be told they're lazy because they're fat. It's a disgusting, vicious cycle.

    3. I agree. We are low on food now, I notice the carbs always go up when food is low in the house. My diet is getting weird, the organic food mixed with some of the stuff that is cheap. My greens were eaten finished at lunch. I actually turned a piece of steak that was 1/8th of a pound into a meal, I am having to cook kind of strange lately with the way the prices are going.

    4. I've never watched that show, LOL no one wants them either. How did those people ever get famous, for being annoying? for the little dogs in purses? Oh that is Paris Hilton...

  2. It helps a lot if you can enjoy home-brewed, unsweetened tea, or coffee. I stopped drinking sodas or juices at one point in my life when I couldn't really afford to drink anything except tapwater and occasionally milk, but teabags are cheap and it doesn't cost much to make a cup of coffee, either. Both are thought to be pretty good for one's health. I prefer green teas, and I drank them with sweetener at first but then weaned myself off it. Sweet-tasting drinks just seem weird to me now.

    1. I like coffee. today I have just drank water. One thing I wish I didn't run out of so quick and was not so expensive is good organic cereal. too many turkey sandwiches, the bread is organic....I like sparkling water but can only afford a few day batch of it a month. I can't drink anything sweet. Eating flavored greek yogurt, I think shot my sugars up. Now it's only plain but I am cooking with it, used it on fajitas.
