    How is access to healthy food a problem in the US? I never understood this. I mean there ARE potato in the US, it is not Latvia isn’t it? I cant imagine that McDonalds is being less expensive in the states than cooking your own food.

    Supermarkets can be hard to get to, especially with persihables, on a bus, etc. Many of the bigger, cheap supermarket chains won't open stores in the hood. I guess we can't blame them totally. Besides the fact that cooking takes time and is a lost art for many. i mean, you can get tv dinners and the liquor store or AM pm, but you can't get a potato. Besides, do you know how much in season nectarines and pears are in California? $3 per pound. That's about a $1.50 a nectarine. All this is well documented, unless you are watching Penn and Teller, and all that McD's is good for you.

    Wow this sounds quite fucked up. I assumed easy access to supermarkets would be a given.

    Cooking is not hard though and does not necessary take much time. Just stick to the basics, no need to do everything yourself. So I think it is more of an culture problem.

    The situation and infrastructure follow from the culture, to the point where changing people's outlook on nutrition may no longer be enough.

    I doubt asking a question would be fraud. But it's funny because my insurance company used pay for my gym membership. They also used to send OTC meds to us for free every month. But as the insurance rates have changed, they cut out those benefits.

    Greens are the cheapest vegetable in the shop. Brown rice is cheaper than white rice. Frozen Chicken is @ $1 a pound. Peanut butter is cheap. Eggs are cheap. Mexican staples (pasilla peppers, chyote, masa harina, ect...) are cheep as hell.

    You can eat like a health nut on the cheap. You just can't be picky about taste and you'll need to cook. It can be done though.

    Yup. That's how it is. Why do other peoples personal choices bother you?

    It's hard to get in the habit but not hard to do the deal once you know the routine.

    Start with my list. Stick to "slow foods". Learn a couple recipies from scratch and go with it! Do that 90% of the time and you can afford an ice cream indulgence or extra slice of pizza once in a while.

    Don't be so down! I've felt the same way as you on many occasions. But I've learned a few tricks and eat darn well on a poor man's budget!

ID:	15133Here in Australia there is a Plethora of Fruit and Vegies easily accessible and we still have the obesity problem in fact where pretty high on the list for the worlds fattest countries.

    Its not a disease Fat pricks just say that to excuse their lazy ass inability to get up and do something about it, Political correctness gone wrong yet again....

    When I go shopping my trolley is full of veg and I look around and most people are lucky to have a bag of potato's, All this Lavish cooking shows etc are to blame also..
    any way that’s my Rant if your fat get your ass to the gym and stop eating Mcd's

    When I am talking about healthy, I am talking farmers market and organic. At costco, Asparugus is $2.59 a LB and Lettuce at Lucky's market is $2. I don't consider a chicken stuff with antibiotics and water healthy, but it beats starving.

    You can eat like a health nut on the cheap. You just can't be picky about taste and you'll need to cook. It can be done though.

    If you're a single mom with 2 jobs and 3 kids, it is tough to cook. Bad choices by those leaches right, though.

    Yup. That's how it is. Why do other peoples personal choices bother you?

    Because they are not all "choices", some are conditions. Race, Class, Geography. I think people need to pull themselves up from their bootstraps, but it is hard when they have no boots.

    It's hard to get in the habit but not hard to do the deal once you know the routine.

    I am actually pretty well off compared to most of the USA. My feelings were based on compassion and growing up on the wrong side of the tracks. I told one of my friends that kids in the bad neighborhoods need to go to the library more, not play more soccer, he told me, they closed the libraries. Stupid poor kids! They need to move to better neighborhoods, just not mine!

    Some of you people are fucking idiots.
    This is a great thing because now doctors can go back to saying, "You're obese."
    instead of having to worry about bullshit like this:

    Doctor in trouble for calling patient obese
    N.H. woman filed complaint; state attorney general asked to investigate
    “I told a fat woman she was obese,” Bennett says. “I tried to get her attention. I told her, 'You need to get on a program, join a group of like-minded people and peel off the weight that is going to kill you.'"
