    Atkins is a healthy diet.
    WTF are you even talking about? Keto diets force your body functions to become altered because... (and this is important) your body was not designed to use keytones as energy! Of all this piss poor idea's you have provided in this thread (starve the poor children included), this is probably the worst.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    *re-reads post* No, I'm pretty sure I didn't say anything about needing a government program to correct computer games and the internet. You should probably clean your glasses.

    You didn't, and you missed the point; went over your head.

    Seeing as we need school lunches, I figured we also need a government program to regulate the amount of time kids spend in front of the computer too.


    Then there is the following.

    CHICAGO (CBS) Chicago Public Schools is apologizing to a Chicago mother and her two young sons, ages 5 and 6, after they were denied breakfast because they came to schools wearing the wrong kind of shoes.

    The Nicholson brothers only grab a quick snack before heading to class because they qualify for a full free breakfast at Adam Powell Grade School...

    I felt sad. Were always supposed to have breakfast, first-grader Noah Nicholson says.

    The boys great aunt is livid.

    I dont care if they had on orange shoes, they were in line to eat, Robin Price says. Im not going to feed you because you have the wrong shoes? Shoes? No, no.

    No Breakfast For Kids Wearing ‘Wrong’ Shoes At Grade School CBS Chicago
    They snack before school, and I don't know this for sure but my bet is the mother too lazy to make breakfast. Just send the kids off to the government and let someone else take responsibility for her responsibility.

    This entitlement crap is disgusting and sends a bad message. In this piece you have three generations wrapped up in the entitlement poison. Great Aunt, Mother and kids. (puke icon).

    I have never heard of such a thing.
    Must be a false advertisement marketing ploy because surely everything must contain sugar.

    Kids are not fat because of chocolate milk. I drank chocolate milk as a kid (still do in fact -- many endurance athletes make chocolate milk a part of their diet) and am not fat. The kids need more veggies, but they also need more exercise... get the kids out and running around, playing basketball, or whatever... educate them to make healthy food choices... chocolate milk can very definately be part of a healthy diet...

    The best diet would be Atkins; but that ain't gonna happen any time soon. It is diametrically opposed to the Government Food Pyramid and the brainwashing the low fat craze they fomented..
    The Atkins diet is actually rather controversial. It is not "proven" and for some people, especially endurance athletes, it would be rather foolish to follow that diet.

    Why blame the "food pyramid"? Yes, it isn't ideal, but is that TRULY the cause of obesity? Look at the junk food people eat and the lack of physical activity. Are either of those within the government recommendations? No, they aren't. The "food pyramid" does not call for five servings of cookies/potato chips/Doritos a day.

    Agreed... rediculous... I always had breakfast at home before going to school and we typically prepare breakfast at home before the girls go to school... occasionally, we eat at one of the local breakfast shops together, but only occasionally...
