    Maybe if the schools where kids eat breakfast and lunch at for five days a week started serving healthy food,banned vending machines, made PE/gym mandatory, and maybe once a week take the kids out on a walk as part of some science class or social studies activity or have them walk to a park as a field trip.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    While I agree, if they're going to promote something, this is better than the previous.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Yeah - she only gained at least 40 lbs.

    That image is from May 2011. Michelle Obama is 5'11. For a medium frame woman, that puts her ideal weight at 145-159. Height and Weight Chart - height weight chart, weight height chart

    Are you trying to suggest she is over that weight? You have any evidence? Do you have any other stupid complaints?

    You don't feel the same way I do - why on earth are you so defensive about my critical view of another female?

    I don't see you swooping into someone else's defense *ahem*

    I hate stupid complaints, no matter who makes them nor who the complaints are directed at. You made a claim, it looks to be false. I looked at every picture of Mrs. Obama I could find for the last month and in none of them does she look overweight, and certainly not heavy enough to be unhealthy. So, you said she has put on 40 pounds, and that she is "getting a little thick". Leaving aside the fact she is 47(ie an age when most people do put on weight do to a change in metabolism), she is not thick enough to be overweight. Not that this has anything to do with the food plate, but you are the one to make the stupid, snide, catty comment.

    I realize when you can't whine about something, but still have to cry, it's easiest to take cheap pot shots at the person involved, but it doesn't make it smart, or a good debate technique.

    I see Mrs Obama getting a little thick and don't imagine she remotely follows the food pyramid. In the same way I don't think that a aesthetician with acne knows a single thing about proper skin care. Or like the overweight gym instructor at my kid's elementary school.

    *shrug*

    maybe I'm snide
    I'm sorry Aunt Spiker. This photo is from the trip to England. I see a very fit woman. Her clavicals are visible. She's not a stick figure, to be sure, she's curvy, but she is not fat.

And I know people that supposedly "follow" low carb diets, which they turn into "no-carb diets" afraid that any carb will make them fat, and then they fall off and gorge. All carbs are eventually broken down to their simplest form, which is going to eventually be glucose. Simple sugars cause a spike because of how little work needs to be done to break them down. But when you think about it in a chronic sense, meaning over the course of years, having a high carb diet is going to increase your CBG levels, and result in obesity and/or type II diabetes (if sednetary). Glycemic indexes are a better determinant of what kind of carbs you should eat, rather than just thinking bread is better than sugar. It's all eventually sugar. When you see massively obese people, they didn't get that way on steak, chicken, eggs, etc...They likely got that way via massive amounts of carbs across the spectrum. French fries, soda, cereal, pasta, etc....And then they compound the problem by their cells becoming insulin resistant because so much insulin is released all the time.
    Sure, that's exactly what I said in pretty much my entire post. I don't disagree with any of that other than the fact that having a healthy amount of carbs (60-65) makes you insulin resistant. That's simply not true unless all of these carbs are coming from simple sugars.

    Yes. It is a waste of money but is more simple than the old food pyramid so maybe more people will be able to undersand it now. Having said that? Do we really think people that overeat are gonna give a crap or pay any attention to this new food plate? I don't think so. lol.

    So yeah waste of money in a time when this money could be spent on much better things
