    Natural occurences have a tendency to be self regulating if the food is locked up...

    ...all those parents had to do was stock up on broccoli and the kid wouldn't have been able to grow that big.

    And were you aware that a good solid dill pickle has zero calories and zero carbs and zero protein? It's the perfect snack food!

    So, put the kid on the broccoli and pickle diet, and she'll be svelte in no time.

    The Mayor wonders more about the mindset that brings a human cetacean food when it can't get it's own, and if they're in bed for years, is the person hauling the food hauling the poo?

    Yes it is. It is much cheaper to feed a family with that $3 processed family sized frozen lasagna than it is is making it fresh.

    You can say it all ya want but the fact is that it cost more to eat healthy in this country and that is a shame.

    Exercise more.

    Works every time.

    If the weight doesn't go down, repeat steps one and two.

    Eventually weight goes down, fitness goes up.

    No it isn't, it just seems that way because if you buy the ingredients they will altogether cost more than that one lasagna yet you would be able to make like 5 times as much food.

    One does not have to have a 100% diet of whole, fresh foods to be healthy. The key is moderation with adequate exercise. Granted, there is nothing moderate about my workout regimin and few can match it, but you don't have to. I do eat snack foods and drink Coca cola from time to time, but I strive to maintain a balanced diet. It can be done. You just have to put effort, thought, and planning into it...

    No. It is a fact that the frozen is cheaper. Why the hell do you think poor people are buying it? I don't know where you live but here a $3 frozen lasagna is much cheaper than making a homemade one. Sure it may not taste as good but it will feed kids.

    I am not sure what world you are living in but lasagna done homemade and right cost me around $25 and up. This is the big pan of it. Of course quality lasagna has some stuff that the frozen does not.

    But still it is cheaper to buy frozen. Same with frozen chicken. You can buy a box of frozen chicken for $4 and you swould never be able to buy it fresh unless you only wanna eat wings or something.
