This "can't afford decent food" is complete BS. I cook fresh every meal almost and it is way cheaper.Myths. "I'm overweight because I can't afford decent food"
Shopping at Aldi's I can put together a roast chicken dinner for two adults and two kids for £6.70p
Honesty about our past gives us the passion to change the future...I like your styleThis "can't afford decent food" is complete BS. I cook fresh every meal almost and it is way cheaper.
When I used to eat meat it was slightly more expensive but still under £1.50 per person per meal most of the time.
I can make risotto/curry/pasta/chilli/roasts no bother for £1-£1.50 per person. Laziness and maybe ignorance/conditioning is the issue for a lot of people, and it was for me for a long time too TBF.
Does my head in when people say they cant afford to eat healthy... f***ing miles cheaper!
£1 million an hour is the exact figure.The amount of roly-poly's around these days must impact badly on the NHS
Greed (to have) is an express train out of control. It's destination is hell, yet we continue to heap coal into the boiler. Can you believe that we have sunk low enough to make a competition out of Covid deaths and vaccinations. Fast living, fast food, leaping from one love / fad to another as they fall foul of social acceptence.Sometimes it's like the lean looking alcoholic trying to tell the 4 stone overweight friend they need to change to healthy eating.
The reality is, we've been given too much choice and coaxed into choosing snacks on the run rather than the art of making a semi nutritious family meal.
There's more overweight men than women still iirc. Although there are more and more young women who are bloaters. I blame the desperate blokes who buck them.Obesity is an epidemic, especially amongst lasses.
It always strikes me when you see old photo’s or videos of Sunderland from the sixties and before the relative absence of overweight people.
You got something there DM...can remember not getting much action when I was overweight, but shagged my way through France two years later after becoming a keep fit freak.For fat sctatters

It's really not a different argument. You questioned whether our national obesity rate contributed to the high mortality rate. Other countries have just as high, and if not higher rates of obesity - yet they don't seem to have hit our mortality rates. Which leaves the question why?That’s a different argument though. My point was more around the mortality rate which is one of the highest in the western world. Almost 3%. That’s with us having done more testing, and therefore catching more cases, than other countries.
