Shake Shack works just as well! Well it doesn't fit into the garbage category.

You are not a New Yorker if you don't like Shake Shack.

Thats what Im talking about. When you are on a bus and everyone is obese you see them taking up multiple seats. On each bus there are only about 6 seats for the disabled. Obese people are disabled. Here they are taking up 1-1.5 seats per butt cheek. It aint right.

Since I was unable to sit down on the ride, which lasted about 20 stops (it seemed), I mean, I dunno. The Stop Requested sign went on at Every street. I believe its because obese people do not want to walk that extra one or two blocks to their destination. So everyone suffers because of their obesity

I had to stand the whole ride. Then one stood up and slimed my arm with her sweaty scalp. Im like ewww. Then the bus driver announced how Uber prices are currently cheaper compared to MTA bus rides. I wonder if Uber drivers accomodate obese passengers any differently.

News flash: There's an obesity epedemic in this country.

But nobody talks about it anymore. We're moving on to the opioid epedemic that is killing more people in this country than car accidents ever have.

There's an obesity epidemic in this country because people eat huge portions and are overeaters. Constant access to food leads to overrating, emotional eating, binge eating.

I've seen people lose weight and gain it al back again. It's because they just can't watch their calories (nobody has time for that) and just can't find ways to control cravings and eliminating heavily processed foods.,
