Recent regulation on food got me thinking.

I was trying to think of a way for both sides to be happy. On one side..we have the people who realize the 400 lbs unhealthy over eater is costing our country money and causing us unnecessary stress.. This is via numerous heart attacks,abuse of food stamps*buying cheetos for one meal vs a big bag of potatos for the same cost*,the fatties who get on disability because they can't bare to walk the extra 10 feet to enter a store or restaurant where they will just make themselves more unhealthy thus costing us more money,and those people who die in their 30s because they cant put the fork down.
The other side is "do what makes you happy" if you want to be 1000lbs go ahead. *the side im on*
Racking my brain trying to think how the fda and people could come together happy.
Finally thought of something.
Changing the transparency of the menu.
For instance...if the fda would put pressure on ALL RESTAURANTS to list calories and complete nutrition information both in store and in website easily available upfront. Not hidden.
I also think high calorie items should be highlighted as such on the actual menus. 600 calories and over.
Second step is stop using skinny actors to push the mcrib or similar. Average people should be used. May be offensive to some here in the states but oh well

This idea of insisting everyone to denote calories, etc but the thing is fat people are gonna do what fat people do. I have family that is like this eventhough theyve attended health classes, and know this stuff. And eating is much like picking out ice cream flavors everyone likes one more than another and theyll return to that one flavor.
If the problem is over-eating ...then you have a point, but aesthetic people in the industry sell the product, consumers get the product. The average consumer will do what the average consumer does at the end, not what the minority of aesthetic people will do (lift, run, have fitness classes, worry about their health). In a sense what you are proposing is reasonable but for companies to "change" their marketing tactics, well good luck with that I guess cause even if it was an eskimo selling ice cream to an eskimo they'd be using the most aesthetic people and said average mentality would return to the mean ie eat ice cream.
Actually the bigger thing at foot is the availability of franchises at corners, and the exposure most people have to one. But people still have common sense most will eat 2-3 burgers some will eat 3 , 2 fries an ice-cream 'wich' , dont matter

The problem is in this country good organic healthy food costs too much for the average household to eat.. Try buying enough organic eggs, chicken, beef, etc to feed a family of 5 and then compare that to the regular ****...

Also hard when Aluminum levels in our soil keep rising and Monsanto holds the patent to aluminum resistant seeds. Wonder how the aluminum levels keep rising? It couldn't be from those giant trails from plains across our sky's? No way.

Mcdonalds puts the nutrition facts on their wrappers, I don't think it has made an iota of difference.

What I've noticed is.. People who don't exercise or have a gym membership usually don't care enough to eat healthy. Its those of use who grind it out day after day looking for results and improvement who are looking for the best foods to fuel themselves.. Or those who are about to die due to health complications.
and on that later note it still doesn't stop most from not giving a ****.

another problem that encourages obesity is the price of 'wholesome foods', fresh meat and vegetables are getting insanely over-priced, imo....while at the same time unhealthy foods like chips and hot dogs are very cheap. processed and precooked frozen foods are much cheaper than buying ingredients to make it yourself.
let them mention on the morning news that something is good for you and by the end of the week price has doubled.
i just cannot see how a couple working minimum wage jobs with 2 children could afford to feed themselves and their children healthy meals...

Oh believe me I know how muchbit sucks to work for a big corporation. Im working for S**rbucks in college and after your first 40 cent raise every six months after that it only goes up ten cents. Still making under 8 bucke after 1 year 4 months
Wish companies could be more like whole foods or costco. They start you a out well above min wage and give you a nice raise every 6 months...or just wish companies gave a raise based on hard work..
Im really just referring to big companies and not small businesses, bc small businesses cant always afford to pay high for low skill jobs.

i recently started a business and even though it eats at my profit margin i start guys out at $12 and hour and after a year it goes to $14, any raises after that are based on merit.
my theory is if you can't afford to pay a fair wage, then you aren't ready to hire employees.
