    this is why america is SO FAT!

    and people wonder why over 50% of american adults are obese, whereas other countries like sweden are at 13%.

    the newest Kellogg's Special K commercial has the "Special K Challenge" or whatever. it says to replace two meals a day with a bowl of Special K for two weeks and you could lose up to 6 pounds. well, fuckin duh. until your metabolism stops and you gain 5 pounds a week because your body starts storing everything you take in. not to mention the lack of anything really essential other than bran flakes and milk you know, they could stop doing this, but its advertising, and it makes money. almost as stupid as the FDA's food pyramid

    The thing about the food pyramid is it was developed by the US Dept. of Agriculture. An agency that has nothing to do with nutrition, only the production of food stuffs.

    I saw the Atkins food pyramid on the back of Parade magazine several weeks ago. It makes a lot more sense.

    That's true Jodi...but, jeeezzzz it is hard to change the way you were raised. Some peeps are raised on fried food and fast food. I was and it's been hell making that change.

    I'm trying like hell to make it different for my kids!

    I would rather them have mac&cheese then McDonald's Chicken McNuggets.

    My concern is with sugar for the little ones. Remember their dietary needs are different when they are young and can handle a bit more fat and carbs and even dairy. It is the huge amount of sugar that they seem to be getting the concerns me first.

    Lead by example is my belief. When I used to coach I would tell all the parents that they need to teach their kids to cook. So important!!!
