Not sure if it is debate worthy, but just in case sticking it up here.

Then why, oh why are the voices of the GOP so against Mrs. Obama's healthy eating educational program? Why are they mocking attempts to educate people on

People who are informed, read labels.

I think if there was more information about calories at Fast Food places, people would re-think their choices. If they realized that one bite is 100 calories, then maybe they would glance over the menu and see that a plain salad is no way near that.

I know people that think if they eat a large piece of cake that it's okay. After all they have to walk up and down stairs after they eat it. Ugggghhh.....

I rarely eat fast food. I will walk about a mile to get a Subway Sub and walk back. But a footlong sub is 2-3 meals for me.

I'm all for calories being put right there next to the price of a fast food meal.

The schools around here, have just recently added spring water as a choice to their menu. This act, actually made the local news.

I don't think this is a political issue, also don't believe we should just throw money in the hopes that a label or restriction will work.

I'm guessing that they will probably find that relatively attractive women earn more, on average, than relatively unattractive women as well.



I don't know what they expect people to do with these stats.

I was one who stated that I was thin because of my illness.

BTW my BMI was considered overweight before illness, so maybe that contributed?
