Obesity vs Malnourishment

Postby Jisgone » Sun May 20, 2007 10:14 pm

For the first time in history, the number of obese people now outweighs the number of malnourished people. Several factors are adding to that statistic: the inactive state of most people caught in the electronic age. Now, with the zealous use of cell phones, lap tops, video games, home PC, people are actually being encouraged to be inactive.

Fast food restaurants are on the rise, “Would you like to super size that today?” Eating improperly, either because you just don’t have the time, or you aren’t well-versed in how to eat the right foods all leads someone down the obesity path.

In the United States alone, obesity weighs as the number two factor of the leading cause of death. Obesity in the United States takes more lives than AIDS, cancers and accidents combined.

just think, if all the overweight people fed the malnourished there extra food no one in the world would be left hungry

upsizing is evil, companies will do anything to make an extra 50 cents! i did a few calculations

- each time u upgrade from regular to large at maccas u add 165 calories to your meal
- those extra 165 calories once a week will add up to gaining 1kg in 42 weeks, thats about 1.2kg a year just from upgrading
- your paying mcdonalds $21 to help u gain that kilo, thats a whole basket full of fruit and veg
- if u downgrade from a medium to a small youll lose 156 calories from your meal, which is a loss of 1kg every 44 weeks
- 30 mins of walking at 6km/h burns 171 calories, is going on a 30 min walk really worth those few extra chips?
