My understanding is that "Murica!" is often used derogatorily, has been since I was in high school back in the 1980s. I wasn't offended by Ferfal using it, though. FWIW.

Murica




How much it offends you is directly proportional to how desperately you need to feel ofended by anything at all.

I have zero energy, need to eat for energy and severe exercise intolerance. It's no wonder I now carry a bit of weight, despite regular fasting.

Americans are chock-a-block full of similar diseases. Guessing nuclear testing and industrial waste/pollution may play a role. But in any case, we know we have problems.
Man, I'm fat/overweight myself. Sometimes I'm a bit closer to the weight that is right for me, sometimes I screw up and gain a few pounds. Never got too bad but I sure do notice that a few pounds more or less makes a BIG difference in how I feel. Stuff like snoring vs sleeping well, overal agility and feeling like crap. Its maybe what motivates me the most to get serious about losing it.
I did a better job with my kids. All very lean and healthy. They dont like sodas o junk food. Maybe get a burger and fries once in a while, but 99% of what we eat is home made cooked from raw ingredients. Its has a huge impact in their athlelicism and overal health.

I decided last week I was being drawn into some of the spamming trolls' diatribe and utter nonsense, and made a pact with myself to ease up on some of the snarky replies, in favor of a generally more understanding, conciliatory attitude instead.

This certainly doesn't mean I will capitulate or kow-tow to anyone up on their soapbox screaming their fool heads off.

It only means I intend to measure twice, cut once, as often as possible.
In other words, read, process and formulate an opinion before more thoughtfully engaging in discourse here.

We 're all human (hopefully) and make mistakes, take things out of context, and sometimes are quick to anger or jump to conclusions. I know I certainly do sometimes.

However, rather than participate in ridiculous in-fighting and spiteful comments that are intended to hurt or offend, my resolve is to make an attempt at better understanding someone else's point of view before I pass my own internal judgement on them or their words.

I feel that I came here with the sole purpose of learning and the exchange of ideas. Over the years, I have felt fortunate to be part of this incredible online community, and have gleaned a treasure trove, literally several lifetime's worth of knowledge.

This is just me and how I want to try to improve my own personal outlook on this forum and the world in general. Your mileage may vary.

When fast food is cheaper than wholesome food in general ,you know that someone is trying to control you.

Eating poorly means people are weaker mentally and physically speaking. Less likely to feel strong and positive, think for themselves, ask the right questions. Also, it means people get sick. A lot. So they charge your for the crap they call food and they charge you to keep you alive when you get sick from the crap they make sure you end up eating. Trillion dollar business dont just happen. They are planned.

Ex, I battle really horrific depressions, run a business, and am a full time caregiver to my husband. Once a week or so I make him up a huge pot of split peas with rice and ham, freeze most. He wants that every day. So I take out a container the night before and then serve it to him over the course of the next day.

I don't know if it's a head injury thing but he will literally eat it every meal, has for weeks now. It is healthy so I'm not worried about him.

Truth hurts.

Sadly, in many parts of the US being Obese is not only socially acceptable, it is often celebrated. The folks I grew up with who never left our home town are freaking whales and think it is normal to have diabetes and heart disease in their 40's..
