    I thought this bill was to prevent them from starving to death, in the street. That's how it was portrayed when the Republicans opposed the bill.
    I was proud of the Republicans but this turns out to be bi-partisan with the help of Mitch McConnell
    Some other do-gooders are Pelosi, Reid,Lincoln, Harkin, and (Arne Duncan, Kathline Sebelious, Michelle Obama)

    It's terrible to want to do good. Those evil do gooders. Damn them.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No doubt....As a trucker, I ballooned up to about 280lbs. Which isn't real bad considering I am 6'4" tall, but as I get older, I knew I wanted to drop the lbs. and get a little healthier, so I started packing my own food, and avoid the fast junk as much as possible.

    You are eating too few calories I think.... Lets say you are what 6' 200lbs? You should be eating 2439 calories a day to maintain your current weight... 1439 calories to lose 2lbs a week.....

    Now that's if you do nothing. You need to add the calories burned for your running to the calorie total. Lets say you burn 1000 calories running, you would need to eat 3439 to maintain current weigth, and you would need to eat 2439 calories to lose 2 lbs per week.


    Maximum is 3lbs.... 923 per day. that would be 1923 if you are running a 1000 calorie run..... So you are right at the cusp, if you go under that 923 calorie threshold, or 1923 threshold with your running, you are putting your body in starvation mode and you will struggle to lose weight...


    And if you want to really change body comp:

    OMG! I need a drool smiley....Yep...They are great. I still go if I am out for more than a couple of days, but now I try to take smaller portions, and include a salad, along with no soda, just water.

I would say it may be more beneficial to make kids take PE each year and actually have them physically work. However, I don't think the government can stop the obesity problem. I hope they don't use it as an excuse to encroach upon a family's private life and dictate what they can feed their kids. Being fat may be unhealthy, but that's still a persons right.
    They will be recording the BMI of children. It's in that bill somewhere among other egregeous things. If chubby kids had a hard time in school before, I hate to see what's coming. Eating disorders is one I'll put at the top of the list to come.
    When the government is going to be in charge of healthcare, they have every right to tell us how we must take care of our bodies.

    I agree. I used to drink about a 6 pack a day of Dew....I gave that up, and instantly dropped 15lbs. the sugar content is amazing.

    Now I stick to coffee, and water.
