Impressive but that doesn't mean you understand nutrition. French fries are not a part of a healthy diet other than as a cheat meal.
I was initially on the side of "who the F is government tell us what to eat" then I understood how medical costs are paid and I changed my tune. You are totally free to kill yourself with bad food. You are not totally free to suck up huge amounts of health care dollars jacking up the premiums on otherwise healthy and responsible individuals and businesses. If my insurance premiums are going towards your irresponsible, COMPLETELY avoidable behavior, then the government should get involved with food.

Why do we fall?
So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
Seriously, this is a stupid thread (hence the self-admitted stupid line above). The attacks on the First Lady are mostly over the top. Occasional munching and junk food is not a problem in an overall regimin of healthy eating and good exercise... Many people know about how to eat properly, but obvously many more in the US don't. We need to promote good eating and exercise in a positive way.
And for the member who claimed that he knew more than most about nutrition because he lost weight, you will be hard pressed to find people who are more serious and knowledgable about nutrition than serious, competitive athletes...

Why can't you have your cake, and eat it? What's the point of having an inedible cake? Who eats cake they don't have? Enquiring minds want to know.
