Polish/American food (they feed people in the US with toxins)

The average food item travels 1200 miles. Fresh produce off season travels multiples of that. Even growing food in California has tremendous impact. The Salmon fishery is devastated by the over consumption of fresh water that doesnt occur naturally in quantity. Between fuel consumption and unintended consequences, demand for fresh veggies off season is an environmental disaster. IMO

True, i have seen the biggest pigs in the USA, huge, enormously gelly-like anatomy, eating mc donalds and never getting out of their cars

Well, as I've pointed out to you Euros about 800 times on here: Approximately 30% of the population is obese. Yes it's disgusting, yes it's very embarrassing. However 30% of 290 million = 87 million, which means 203 million people ARE NOT OBESE. So, 5 x the population of Poland and more than double the population of Germany.. ARE NOT OBESE. Supposedly the British aren't that far behind us at about 23% of pop obesity. So I guess there are quite a few European fatties as well? Feel free to share the love around.
yes

Understand that I am not disagreeing with you, only trying to find viable solutions.

I think O'Bama should nationalize the feeding of Americans.

Maybe Obama will appoint a cellulite czar. :3

Some American subjects...

I'll have to dig up some European subjects... they'll likely have body odor steaming from them. Peeewwwww! Yeah we've got some fat people but damn at least they don't smell like an old sock all day. :- (

Nearly twenty per cent of the population in Poland suffers from obesity.

eating mc donalds

I suddenly feel the urge to take my jelly-like, Polish-American body to to McDonald's. I need to chow down, on my daily meal of 20 McDonald's hamburgers.

Is that for real? America's still fatter :P Hell, those look like Americanos

Of course its real, I saw it on the internet. Now, a fat drunken bull-dyke with purple hair is possible in the states, but, this is all Europe. Just look at all that gibberish written on the wall. Prolly France or sumpin. :)

It's German written on the sign and yes that's Europe. Trust me, I've been there 3 times, plenty of fatties. That's why it's so funny when they laugh at us.

A lot of people go for convenience. It is much easier to pick up a dinner on the way from work than come home and start from scratch. Some do it because they hate cooking, some because they have no clue about cooking. It is more convenient to sit in front of a TV with a big sandwich, pizza or boxes of Chinese than spent the time in the kitchen.

A lot of people have beautiful kitchens, never used or hardly ever.

Americans buy ready made food because they actually can afford it. Restaurants, diners or even fast food anywhere in Europe is pretty expensive comparing to earnings, hence you've got to cook. Americans don't. Let somebody else do the cooking and do the dishes.

The abundance of all you can eat buffet style restaurants does not help the problem with obesity. People tend to eat waaaay too much, often because it's cheap, it is lots of it and it is on just about every corner.

The result: people got fat. This is not only American problem, but it is a problem for the entire western world. Poland is starting to see the "benefits" of it already.

So, it's time educate the the public about eating right and get moving. The government is seeking for ways to generate revenue. Tax the burgers as much as the cigarettes, alcohol and gas. Don't' forget to tax the 32oz coke either!

Agree.. consumption tax is the way to go. I would say chips and pretzels you buy in the grocery store too until the deficit gets paid down.

Yep, consumption tax! But not pretzels because they aren't fried.

pretzels

Noooooooooooooooo!

I drank some home-made beer tonight that my nephew brewed. Just our way of "stickin it to the man"

Noooooooooooooooo!

Yep pretzels.. you Wisconsin people have to contribute too. May as well tack on fried cheese too. C'mon man ..you don't want the Chinese owning Lake Michigan do ya?

Seriously, you put a nickel on everyone of those transactions it's lights out deficit.

Better man than me.. mine usually comes out like cow whiz.

You must watch too much tv my friend? I see nothing but fine women all day long,walking down the street, jogging or at the supermarket. People are more health conscious in the US than your stereotypical beliefs. Unless were talking about Wisconsin women then thats a entirely different story lol ..:)

And not you Krysia,
Youre one of the lucky ones:)

hehe not really, i have been to the USA many times, and there are lots of fit people, but also a lot of overweighted people, and when they are overweighted they are really big.

Ah ok...

Not sure about all these, there seems to be something in the food, everytime i go there, for a couple of weeks, i always gain like 2-3 kilos...really strange...in Holland i never gain a gram even if i eat like a pig..

probably processed food, even in cases when it says it is not processed then it is the all the "natural" food coloring/additives and gods know what. One is better off eating grass- ha, ha.....

And likely heavily salted. Apparently salt helps you retain water.

in Holland i never gain a gram even if i eat like a pig..

I couldnt eat the food in Amsterdam, they gave me green Lasagna??

The beer was excellent I must say, it tastes much better than the imported kind we get.

green Lasagna??

hahaha euuwww, well unfortunately my good old Amsterdam is full nowadays of cheap eateries in the center. Get away a bit from the dam area and you will find delicious restaurants.

You see, the additives make the food taste REALLY tasty so you can't stop eating! :)
Actually, there is some science put into it. Something as simple as potato chips - it has some scientifically engineered ingredients so you can not have just one. The "additive" makes you crave more, you keep on eating. It is applied to lots of processed foods.

They are not necessarily "bad", they have all the vitamins and minerals, but..you tend to get too much of a good thing.

salt helps you retain water.

lol. You mean the really big ones are just water? not. It's not all about salt, but it does play a part.

a bit from the dam area and you will find delicious restaurants

That's just great but not too many people can afford them. Right?

The beer was excellent I must say, it tastes much better than the imported kind we get.

How about Fat Tire man?! I think it was from Holland... pretty darn good and it had to be imported.
