Something I find sad and depressing at the same time is the sheer amount of useless contraptions and fad diets out there that people use to lose weight. The common words in the ads for such thing are “six pack”, toned, ripped. Really People all it takes is a little hard work and you can do it too! It will take more than 2 minutes a day and no you can’t eat big sized happy meals every day but if you just do the work and eat better you’ll end up healthier and happier.
A bill was introduced in Mississippi to ban obese people from restaurants. I can’t imagine this would pass. It seems too much like discrimination to me. Some people are overweight due to health problems they can’t control and it just seems unfair to not let them enjoy dining out. I don’t feel the state has the right to tell people where they can eat or tell the establishment that they can’t serve those people and lose the money.
