    That's not always true.

    Yeah, if I overeat at one meal or have too many snacks, I compensate by missing the next. But as I've gotten older, I literally can't overeat as much without feeling like I'm dying...lol

    When I was younger, I could eat 3 times as much and often did. But I was also very active in comparison to today's, electronic monkeys. This generation needs to be outside more and schooled on eating habits that benefit their lifestyle. There wasn't more than a couple of fat kids in our whole school, back in my day.

    Information and constant reminders do help with healthy choices. Look at what they did to cigarettes, without banning them completely. It's a fine line when socially tabooing an unhealthy choice and completely removing the option, which limits freedom.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Exactly, I remember when I was a kid, no one could get me to go inside unless it was bed time or time to eat. i was always doing something outside. But today with all the computer games, cable TV, etc. kids just don't get outside and play like they use too. I suppose I shouldn't talk real loud, as this old foggie has become kind of addicted to the computer himself.

    Same here. It's all about money and things in this techno culture. Decades from now, they'll wonder how they let their kids get so addicted to the indoors activities. They'll have senior citizen diseases in their 40'-50's.

    No, us old folks can't do what we used to anymore. We get a pass to play on our PC's, otherwise we'd just watch Sanford & Son reruns all day, slobbering on our bibs.

    I enjoyed Sanford and Son. I bought a 6 DVD set of Groucho Marx's "You bet your life." I have been watching that and that probably dates me. I have some of the old Jack Benny show too. I also love the old westerns of the 1950's. you would be surprised what one can get on DVD's these days. There is definitely something positive to say about modern technology.

    Speaking of illnesses and diseases, I notice a whole lot more kids are suffering from asthma, allergies and the like. I wonder if not getting outside like we use to all the time, that they haven't built up an immunity to these types of diseases. The do nothing but stay inside in the air conditioning in the summer and in the heat in the winter.

    Not only that, but chickens slaughtered in North America and sent to China for processing don't have to mention their little side trip at all. There simply is no way to know.

    Here's the story, from last December. As far as I know, nothing has changed.

    Recently passed federal regulations make it impossible for you to know just where your chicken has been. Even if it is “Made in the USA” it may be traveling 7,000 miles to China to be processed just to come back here to be sold.

    The biggest effect this will have is that people will now knowingly, and happily, continue to serve their children 800 cal. worth of Cheese Wiz rather than laboring under the illusion that their customary and enormous glop-serving was a mere 400 cal.
    That's their choice, and not much can be done about it other than make it an informed choice.

    I used to like to order the prime rib in restaurants until they started posting their calorie counts. Did you know that the typical prime rib dinner is 2,000 - 3,000 calories?

    I didn't, but I do now.

    it would also be nice if they'd stop doing the "hide the nutritional info under a fold in the candy bar / protein bar wrapper" thing. sometimes you almost have to open the damned thing just to find out how many calories it has.

    as for the new lower salt recommendations, no thanks. i already eat limited cal / low fat for the most part. leave my salt alone.
    I don't think the new law goes far enough. I think the very name of the product should reflect the truth:
