How the hell did this happen? Even in farming towns where you'd think people would at least be fit from manual labor are full of walking dollops of lard.

My ILs are really fat and it's sad to see how much it affects every aspect of their lives. They can't walk more than a few blocks. My parents are the same age as my ILs and not fat- they can walk, bike, ski whatever... Being significantly overweight is a huge quality of life issue. People in this country are addicted to food.

It can if you want it to, but a lot of farmers have aggressively mechanized to a greater extent than farmers in other first-world countries. One example would be digging holes for fenceposts.

Now, Farmer Fatass can do it from an air-conditioned tractor "rig" with a hole-boring attachment. [ Reply | More ]

You are projecting. I would assume that any parent would want her child's spouse to love them for themselves. I am not rich b it I love my son just as much as I love my daughter and my hope is that they both marry people who have their best interest in mind. I am not interested in picking sides in some stupid gender war. [ Reply | More ]

I see the opposite. Men want to make money. I find more men are going into labor type jobs because the pay is higher than many white collar jobs. The hours range from 20 to over 60 hours per week and many are making over $100k. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I started the slow carb diet last Tuesday. So far so good- I've lost about 2 lbs. The diet consists of 3 meals a day- each with a protein (at least 20 grams for lunch and dinner, 30 grams for breakfast), vegetables and a legume. I'm 34 5'5" 121 lbs and 9 months post partum. Looking to lose the last 8 lbs of baby weight. Has anyone else tried this diet? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yes, no exercise at all. I won't kid you the diet isn't fun, but it seems to be effective. The meals can be as big as you like but there is no snacking between meals. It's encouraged to eat the same thing over and over. I had the same 3 meals last week- breakfast: black beans, 3 strips turkey bacon, 2 over easy eggs, salsa lunch: large greens salad with turkey, balsamic dressing, white beans with olive oil, basil and balsamic dinner: veggie lentil stew with a grilled chicken breast on top [ Reply | More ]

Why would you say this is a scam? I've never been a diet like this before but it does seem to be effective. The meals maximize satiation and fiber so you stay fuller longer. I would estimate I'm eating about 1,500 calories per day which is reasonable for weight loss. [ Reply | More ]

at 5 people probably don't want to spend the money for cleats if they don't know if their kid will be interested in it. i also think at 5 not a big deal to wear sneakers, they really are not playing soccer at this point, they are running around on grass (which kids already do) and trying to kick a ball.

An ex's family member went to prison for child pornography. Apparently, he met some woman on-line (late 1990s) and arranged to meet her and have sex with her child (disgusting I know). The whole thing was an FBI sting and he was immediately arrested. He was a doctor and pled guilty to a less charge of child pornography. He claimed that the whole thing was a vigilante mission. The whole family believed his story and his wife stayed with him. He was released from prison a few years ago. [ Reply | More ]
