    Why does the average person not care about what they put in their bodies?

    You know, I sit back and watch people. I see how they eat and their daily habits. Smoking, drinking alcohol at the bar after work every single day or a few times a week. Eating a pizza and double cheeseburgers, instead of cooking something such as Grilled Chicken and a nice healthy salad for dinner. Why is the average person choosing to do this to themselves? To top it all off, they hate the idea of exercising.

    Your thoughts? Hope everyone is having a healthy Friday! If you went to the gym today or are going later, great job and feel great!

    Fat and salt = your average American diet.

    It's called laziness and denial followed by addiction and denial

    The average American is fat, weak and lazy. As you know, going to the gym 5 days a week is hard work. Part of me thinks that a person who lives this life style is kind of a masochist and loves to endure pain.

    Its too phuquin easy to be fat and lazy, and stuff yourself with crap.

    And like a wise man said way back when," you are what you eat".

    Off subject but it happened to me in this thread: Why do I keep getting that stupid message saying I need to spread reputation around before giving it to someone again? I should be able to rep anyone anytime I want to. That sucks.

    As one of the insane work hours set, I can see how people in my field eat like garbage. That said, I do my best personally to carve out a little time in the morning and late nights as well as weekends to cut and prepare positive food for the week to come.

    There really is no excuse, no matter how little time you have. It really just comes down to whether or not your body and your health is a priority or if it's somewhere down on your priority list. i can see by your recent posts you are making it a priority. That's commendable! Best of luck.

    Its because Americans are bombarded with advertisements showing how good stuff is... "oh, the enjoyment of eating a McDonalds burger" Carl's Jr - "if it ain't all over the place, it doesn't belong in your face" (with a hot chick spilling sauce down her cleavage.... Simple minds all fall for this.... plus its easy. There is fast food on every corner!

    Why run to the store, buy food, cook food, dirty dishes, clean kitchen.... when you can just step up to the counter and say, "gimme 3 of those..."

    I think the bigger deal is sugar (and or corn syrup). These ingredients are HUGE in the American diet.
