    Post An Epidemic??!!

    Okay, I was in an All-you-can-eat-buffet last weekend and feel compelled to type this. Do you feel that there's an epidemic going on?? I don't mean to sound mean, but why was I the only thin person in that restaraunt??(besides the cute waitress??)0.0;;; Do you feel Americans get as much exercise as we should??

    I feel that there is a small problem(don't tell me, "You don't know the half of it!!" >.>). I think it can be fixed, and if people take the time to do so, then we can all change and make a difference!! xD

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    Lawl, cute waitress, xD

    Well, you have to define thin first... And no i dont think Emericans get enough exercise. i've heard we are the fattest country in the world, xD. Oh and when i go to buffets, which i dont often, i dont eat much. i much rather go eat sushi, or Jell-O all day.

    Uh welcome to america. the home of the obese. But not everyone is obese. It could have been partially due to what restaurant you where in. If it was a denny's or IHOP well duh of course there are going to be nothing but fatties in there.

    Anyway, we have all heard about this. It is called the news. All they do (if they have nothing to report on which is always) is tell us how fat america is.

    Ever since fast food and dangerous neighborhoods came into play, people have been getting bigger. It's hard to stay healthy these days! I have to exercise every night before bed, 30 kicks on both legs, 25 leg ups for each leg, and 20 sit ups. Then I head off to martial arts once a week. Walking across a huge college campus to my classes and walking an extra block to the bus stop. And on top of all that, recording what I eat every day to make sure I don't eat more that 1500 calories. Not to mention trying to get close to the amount of daily servings. It's hard work!

    My mother was telling me "back in the old days" you could walk or bike to your friend's house and not worry about getting shot. There was not as much fatty food, and a lot more home cooked meals. These days, it's hard to do any of that. It's kind of sad.

    Well yes, obesity is indeed an epidemic in the U.S. . Many would prefer to drive to every destination instead of going for a nice walk. I myself haven't been to a buffet in a month or two but I enjoy them periodically. I'm quite slender if I must say so (149lbs and 6ft 2in 19yrs old). If people would dedicate part of there day to eating better or just trying to break conventions such as driving then things would be a little different. Keep in mind that sometimes obesity can't be helped and can be a trait naturally inherited from ones parents . I'm fortunate enough to not have that problem, I rarely gain weight with as much as I eat. Don't get me wrong, I do work out daily, I run at least three times a week and am getting back into my martial arts training. It is ultimately each individuals choice in the end to do something about this "epidemic"...

    You think you were the only thin person in the restaurant?

    God, someone's conceited beyond belief.

    I'm not an American but I have gone to the US plenty of times before because of either business or vacation (most of the time, vacation). My uncle there is supposed to be in a diet. He's following the Atkin's diet if you're aware of it. Even if he excludes carbs in his diet, he's still fat. Why? coz he eats way too much. And as I can see is the availability of the food. Right here it's pretty hard to get food. But there if you don't feel like standing up and goin to the grocery, just use the phone and the food will come to you (ex. pizza and stuff). So using that method even a tiny bit of exercise is not meant to be.
    Last thing would be the serving of the food. Why is it soo big? Right here the biggest serving of drinks for example is only half of what it is in America.

    Truth is a thing which only appears to those who have observed, considered, and made a choice. At the end of the path you chose lies the truth...Believe in it and continue without faltering.

    I do think that Americans dont get enough exercise. There is too much unhealthy eating, which causes people to gain weight, and then they get really lazy and then want to lose the weight but then are too lazy to go get some excercise and change unhealthy habits of theirs. Lets face it, it is an epidemic. And man, if i had a nickel for every time i saw a weight loss commercial on tv...

    Yeah, the number of obese people is great with all the luxuries we have, I'll admit that I am overweight, but I am not proud of it. People won't exercise just because someone calls them fat, they'll more likely tell you off.

    It's not an epidemic. Obesity is not a contagion. It is a problem with the system. Today, few are wealthy (in time or money) enough to spend time cooking (healthy) food and/or spend time in the gym.

    I guess it depends on how motivated they are to get fit and exercise. I go to the gym every day and do 30-40 minutes on the rowing machine, and I'm taking up weight training and swimming lessons.

    Perhaps most Americans are obese because they lead busy work life and order take out to save time in cooking. At least that's how I've seen in one family. Not mine though... Sometimes my mom finds the time to cook. I thank her for that.
    I got a forum for random people. PM if you wanna check it out.

    Natsume-dono and Miss Chrono are both very right and what they have said sums up what I think should be said about this topic.
    There is no end to be found in this world.
    Sleep, my beloved.
    Your life goes on.
    You were born, and you lived.
    You will tell the song of hope, won't you?
    For eternity.

    Offer up these tears,
    The words of a new love.
    Thank you, days of bliss within my dreams.
    I thank the fact that we met here.
    For eternity.---Requiem~Inori

    Considering the fact that things are so easy to do now, and most household tasks don't require as much physical activity anymore, sure we're all going to get fat. Plus, if I may recall, the small McDonald's serves now used to be the large. People are just serving larger portions.

    But it's not entirely the restuarant's fault, people should know when to quit, and quite frankly, some do not.

    Anyway, the obese thing coming from America.

    It's not news.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    It seems like these days people are either eating too much, or too little. But, yes. I do think obesity is becoming a problem. There's too much easy access to bad, fatty food. And much too little exercise.

    People mentioned that Americans should start walking to places instead of driving. Great idea, only problem is that in the U.S (at least everywhere in the U.S that I've been) a lot of places are difficult to walk to. Either because they are too far, or there's just no way to easily and safely get to it while walking, because most roads in America are designed to be driven on, not walked on. Where I live now, there is no way to really go anywhere by foot without having to quickly run across a busy street and hope you don't get run over. If the roads where made easier to walk on and whatnot, I think it would lower the obesity in America.

    No, it does not. I'm not that way, and half of my family is not that way.

    It's just what most people want to believe is America.

    Most people in America are that way, but not all of them, so you should not think of us all that way.

    I agree with Mori. We have our fit people, and we have our obese people, just like any country. It's just that our obese people happen to be morbidly obese. That's just the society we live in today. I'm not saying that's good, but there are plenty of fit people around too.

    Obesity is a problem everywhere, not just the U.S. If I remember correctly a few years back the count was 60% of the world's population. And that isn't just fat, it's obese.

    It's amazing though how many people go off at me for being healthy, they tell me off for jogging to work, they tell me off for not eating anything that isn't a natural meat, vegetable or oat. I mean why does it upset everyone that I stay so healthy? Is it because it makes them feel bad about themselves and they want to have more company in the fat population?

    I posted a topic like this recently as well...Wish i had worded or had the experience you had.

    I think obesity is a big flippin problem. I think people should stop procrastinating and fix it. I think people should stop giving other people medical "reasons" why they are fat and start making them lose the weight, instead of telling them "its ok cause you cant help it" I honestly it a cock-a-many excuse and something should be done.

    Then again im just an overly worked, underweight, super work out freak. I eat anything and everything i want and still stay near or under 120. It does have a bit to do with high metabolism but it also has to do with the fact that i do 4 mile runs every day, 2hr upper or lower body work outs.

    EXERCISE AMERICA!
    Formally Broly3k8.
    New Country, new life. Living it one day at a time. Beer and food are where my heart is.

    Well for starters, I tend to stay away from buffets. The idea of buffets/fast food kinda urks me...

    America has it's obese and it's extremely underweight.

    I am a vegetarian as of one year, so I tend to eat healthy (but I have my days) its just I don't understand how so many people in america are obese? Are we just that lazy and consume that much fat x.x I don't know how people let themselves get that way...

    Sometimes I'm embarassed living in america... >.>

    What also bugs me is that Obesity isn't the only eating disorder (I see obseity as an eating disorder)...eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia are also on the rise in america. I think america should also focus on that side of eating also. :/
