Re: Is this like watching addicts shooting up?

I'm sorry, but I'm from the deep south, and....well....those fried twinkies did not look that bad.(I workout/lift @ least 5xwk, though).

Then again, I also like going to the Flea Market on Sunday after church, and I like sitting on my front porch on Saturday evenings to see who's passing by my house. I like southern living.

Re: Is this like watching addicts shooting up?

sorry, i'm not American, I had no Idea that they are from the south, or that fried twinkies are a specialty in the southern states in America. I cant help but think that these women need help, and this sort of food is an addiction for them, thats what makes such a video disturbing. Whats more, the young girl, who is already obese, is not being taught anything by her older family members, in fact, the older woman sitting across from her is gorging herself and bragging about it. it sets such a bad example for the younger one eating the fried oreo.

Oh, there's not a need to apologize. I don't even know where these women are from. I do know that food like that is popular in Southern states.
I agree with what you're saying, though; however, lack of exercise also contributes to the obesity. A deep fried twinkie from time to time isn't so bad if it's accompanied by a steady regimine of excercise and the eating of lots and lots of fruits and veggies.

Re: Is this like watching addicts shooting up?

I don't really think it's like watching addicts shoot up.

IMHO, being overweight has been de-stigmatised now to the extent that it's acceptable and frankly almost cultural.

Re: Is this like watching addicts shooting up?

I eat like a horse (though I'm not as bad as I used to be). I do know though that if I even started to put on weight I would start exercising and eating healthier/less. I would imagine that the ladies probably do have emotional issues and must be doing a lot of comfort eating. It's hard to imagine how a person gets to that point. I suppose they didn't seemed too bothered by their weight though. I'd just worry a little that they may struggle with health issues down the line.

Obesity = Killer of healthcare system

It doesn't matter what you workout per week

Those fats are plaque on arteries

But if you exercise (like aerobic or cardio exercise) you can reduce cholesterol, right?

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

It seems to be for one person. You can't tell some people any different.
The hard way always seems the best.

To me it's like addicts shooting up.
It's not apart of any american culture to eat like that anymore besides the obesity culture.

I can't even eat a twinkie. I think it's the most disgusting thing ever.

I'm in Philadelphia we have Tastykates and they're so much better than anything anyone out there makes in a package.

Paula Deen would deep fry herself and serve herself to her husband Michael if she could find a way to.

I have never even seen that bitch make a salad on her show.
Does she know what it would even consist of?

Coleslaw is not a healthy option to a real salad Paula Deen, just letting you know.

she made a salad once by quartering a head of iceberg lettuce and slathering it with a huge mound of blue cheese dressing
