Yes. Don't eat the stuff often either so doing organic for such occasions is fine. A favorite is organic BLT's made at home.

Ingredients:

*Organic bacon (Applegate Organics)
*Organic oat bread (WF brand is pretty good)
*Organic mayo or GMO free (Sir Kensington offers excellent versions of both) or *Follow Your Heart* Original Veganaise
*Organic arugula or organic spinach (whichever is available)

And violà. Can put the bacon in the oven until crisp or whatever, then drain. For fries, buy organic potatoes from WF, leave skin on for fiber, clean as needed, cut up and season with good olive oil (Spanish, Greek or California GMO free or organic is great and reasonable), and fresh sea salt, put into oven and roast. Better than french fries that are fried.

Clean up is easy using aluminum foil tins and can clean dishes while waiting for items to cook in oven.

Am here to tell you *that* can't be topped. Also do organic chicken tenders in the oven from Target (Perdue brand is great - girlfriend gets it as a surprise for me or whatever), with some good GMO free BBQ sauce with roasted fries.

There are people of all different shapes and sizes in the world. You can't change it.


Not everyone who is fat is unhealthy just as not everyone who is thin is healthy. I know a woman in her mid-30's, she is 5'3" and around 98, 99lbs or something... her cholesterol is through the roof, she eats like garbage, she doesn't work out... she is unhealthy and her doctor said so and now she has to change her diet.


I'm just saying... I don't think it is right or fair for us to judge people. We don't always know what's going on as an outsider.
The vast majority of the obesity problem in the US population is simply excess calorie consumption (for the level of activity) - often set in motion by well-meaning but misguided parents at a young age. The non-excess calorie consumption reasons, despite apologists, are vanishingly small.


As for judging - that's a different matter. Yes, we absolutely have no idea how any stranger ended up in their situation.

That's very good. Sounds like a lot of work. I tried it once. I eat like crap but work out and stay in shape. Best of both worlds.

Probably someone has already said this, but obesity is supposedly less in NYC than in the middle of the country.

Wow, that's scary about Coke being cheaper than water.

Beer is cheaper than water in some places.

OP touched a nerve. lol Even if OP is trolling, he's telling the truth.

Ride on the older subway cars with delineated seating (e.g. D/B line) and you'll see just how many people don't fit in the seat. Yes, it's annoying. Having 250lb+ individuals try to squeeze into seats is not only comical but downright rude as they smoosh commuters on either side. You pay a single fare and are entitled to a single seat. Not 1.5 or 2 seats. Manspreading? Showtime? Eating? How about being a normal size so that more people can fit in subway car or bus.


NYC is slimmer than middle America but I suspect if you remove white yuppies in Manhattan, Downtown Brooklyn, LIC, and Astoria from the equation, NYC is just as fat as middle America.



OP is 100% correct in his assertion and if you deny that then either you're ****ing clueless or are taking it personally because you might have an extra few pounds.

He's nowhere near being 100% correct. Even in the hood most people aren't fat.

You're not being serious? Let's move from anectodal evidence to something more concrete.

Quote:
In New York City, obesity is epidemic: more than half of adult New Yorkers are overweight (34%) or obese (22%). Data show that obesity begins early in life: nearly half of all elementary school children and Head Start children are not a healthy weight. In New York City, 1 in 5 kindergarten students, and 1 in 4 Head Start children, is obese.
Obesity

************************************************** *****************************
This just discusses obesity, not those who are overweight (which includes the obese).

White - 24.9%
Black - 32.3%
Latino - 30.6%
New York State Obesity Data, Rates and Trends: The State of Obesity

************************************************** *******************************************
From 2009, but I suspect the trends are still similar today.

Quote:
Data Show Manhattan Is Svelte and Bronx Is Chubby, Chubby

More than 62 percent of Bronx residents are overweight or obese, higher than the rate in any of New York City’s other four boroughs, while the comparable figure for Manhattan was just over 42 percent — the lowest of any of New York State’s 62 counties.

The city’s other boroughs had overweight and obesity rates more closely in line with the statewide average of nearly 60 percent: 58.6 percent in Brooklyn, 57.7 percent on Staten Island and 57.6 percent in Queens..
