Day 19 Obesity: The New Smoking!

I need to start writing down my thoughts more often because either A. I’m hilarious or B. I actually have a valid point..

Which moves me onto reading my sticky note on my iphone… should I write it verbatim? lol..  k.

Do it matters how someone does ubealthy foods heat diesel but want to cure cancer

lol.

And that explains a conversation I had with a co worker. I was driving him somewhere and a commerical came on about sugary drinks. When they all ordered sugar and the dude was like wtf yo and theyre like I’m not gonna eat the sugar, I’m going to drink it.. lol. I personally love it and actually makes SENSE PEOPLE AND DON’T.. how should I say it? SUGARCOAT IT??

haha.. anywho.. he was “pissed” because that money should be going towards curing cancer (which I actually believe it has been cured, and I actually think the government is no bueno lol), but it didn’t get me thinking till later that night.

I always get stopped on my way home on route 83 and there is a Culvers (FLAVOR OF THE DAY OMG!), Papa Johns (JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE MY FAVE) and a Mcdonalds all on the same intersection. So while I was sitting in the precense of all these fast food places I asked myself a qeustion (I actually talk to myself alot), and it was along the lines of:

  • Why does it matter what kind of illness or disease a person dies from?
  • Why does cancer make heart diease, stoke, or diabetes any different?
  • Is it because people who die from obesity, MAKE themselves sick?

Obesity: ‘Like the new smoking’

Two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese and, according to a growing body of evidence, at greater risk of getting, and dying of, cancer. ‘Obesity is almost like the new smoking,’ says one expert.

The more I ask myself these questions, the more I think I’m asking myself how the world all began. It’s almost hopeless. The people who want change will seek it, the people who want free will and a stubborn attitude can eat their lives away.. literally.

Regardless, just because people are taxing sugary drinks doesn’t mean they are disappearing.. WHICH THEY SHOULD!!!!  we want to bitch about fat people yet provide the stuff that is causing the problem.  We are trying to save lives by curing cancer and healing the sick, when WHERE WE LIVE IS A REASON WHY SOME PEOPLE ARE SICK IN THE FIRST PLACE! We are providing the processed foods, the tobacco ext. We are KNOWINGLY ALLOWING people to get sick. There is PROOF these fast foods do damage, that these cigarettes take years off your life, but we ignore this why?  We live in a world where there is a Mcdonalds on every damn corner, where it’s faster to get a meal “made” then it is to go pee in the morning. I mean COME ON!

If you want to bitch about something make sure somewhere down the road you won’t walk into a huge contradiction.

:/ Honestly to each their own. From here on out, If you want to live unhealthy and ruin the only thing that is pure in this world go ahead. Be what you hate in this world. It’s the american thing to do.

** HOLY SHIT!**

It’s ( 1:09am), Still haven’t published this blog, but I’m glad I didn’t. I just posted a status about what I was talking about (obesity vs smoking) and it got so many people heated..People really got weird when I compared smoking to eating like shit.. The convo got to where they said how since smoking affects others around you that its worse then eating like shit.

I am going to paste some comments people posted:

LOL @ the people who look down on smokers, and eat like shit #doingthesameharmpeople!
and 73 comments later.. here are some certain clips..
“how is eating like shit killing, and or putting possible cancer in your lungs? Dieting or changing your eating habits can reverse eating like shit, once cancer shows up you’re kinda screwed.
I think the harm is on two different levels…..”
“didn’t read everything everyone else said.. but while I can see your logic behind this post.. food is a necessity to life. Smoking is not. While eating shit food isnt as good as eating “healthy” food.. it still can sustain life. Now i didnt do research on this.. but no food comes to mind that directly leads to cancer to the person consuming it.. nor the person sitting next to the person consuming it. so yeah.. this isnt comparing apples to apples here.

Like what the fuck.. I don’t understand how we got from comparing obesity and smoking, turned into smoking is so much worse because it effects more then just the user. IT DOESN’T MATTER! Just because it happens to kill others, doesn’t make it any less harmful to its user.

(1:42am) And now that I am STILL having a conversation regarding smoking and eating unhealthy, It is now a known fact that obesity will kill you faster then smoking will.. yeah. Unbelievable.

ARE WE GOING TO FINALLY UNDERSTAND NOW?

This isn’t a low carb diet, or a no food fad, this is a lifestyle that we selfishlessly LOST somewhere. We are addicted to the sugar, to the convienece, to a lazy lifestyle!

  • But just for the record, just like some smokers will always smoke, some people will just always eat unhealthy. 😦

Why do we think we can just sweep things under neath the rug and pretend they don’t exist?

Oh lifes questions, haha ❤

Back to FRIDAY- Today has been so busy I have been all over the place… I actually think I am going to finish this blog tomorrow, because I cannot keep my eyes open and today was actually a pretty good day..

Ate at 6pm LOL in my car. here.. look.

Sorry that it’s upside down.

Told you I was super busy.. I also ate a Lara bar, this one was cashew cookie. I thought this one was gonna be good because I love cashews but um…… it tasted like a hotdog……weird? tell me about it……..

Decided not to go to the gym today.. I didn’t wanna stress out and I got home at 8pm and Im coming up with excuses now. I am doing legs tomorrow which I am SUPER excited about, then arms on sunday. Both with 30-35 min cardio each day.

So at 8pm I ate some “meatloaf” and cauliflower mashed potatoes:

Processed Foods

“THE LONGER THE SHELF LIFE; THE SHORTER THE HUMAN LIFE”

WHAT ARE PROCESSED FOODS?

I’ve been told that all processed foods are bad for us. I am having a hard time understanding what exactly is considered to be “processed food.” Do you have a list or something that would help me? Why are processed foods bad for us? Are there any processed foods that aren’t bad or even maybe good for us?Jen – About.com User

Dictionary Definition?

Processed foods have been altered from their natural state, either for safety reasons or for convenience. The methods used for processing foods include canning, freezing, refrigeration, dehydration and aseptic processing.

There are a lot of processed foods being sold that aren’t good for you. Many of the bad processed foods are made with trans-fats, saturated fats, and large amounts of sodium and sugar. These types of foods should be avoided, or at least eaten sparingly. A common piece of advice is that if you can’t pronounce any of the ingredients you may want to avoid the product.

and some processed foods that are.. (ONLY by technicality)..

Milk is actually considered processed. It’s pasteurized to kill bacteria and homogenized to keep fats from separating.

But I hope you understand what I mean. For the most part, if it’s in a bag, box or package you probably shouldn’t be eating it.. or better yet, if it lasts for more then 2 weeks you shouldn’t be consuming it lol.

Still don’t care? Here are some fun facts that might make you care…

1: Deciphering food label ingredients leads to unappetizing results. Take the innocuous-sounding castoreum, which is used to enhance the flavor of puddings, candies, and some frozen dairy desserts. You might be surprised to know that it’s derived from beavers–beaver anal glands, specifically.

2: Many foods get their red coloring–“carmine”–from ground-up insect shells that can cause severe allergic reactions in some people.

3: The greater the number of cheap cuts of meat ground into a single patty, the greater the risk of contamination with E. coli. A standard fast-food burger contains the trimmings of dozens of cows raised around the globe.

4: According to research from UCLA, it takes only two months to lower levels of brain chemicals responsible for learning and memory (like BDNF) on a steady diet of processed foods.

5: Processed food is only as good as its packaging: In the summer of last year, Kellogg’s recalled 28 million boxes of cereal because a compound in the box lining (the company wouldn’t say what) was giving off a foul smell and tainting the taste of the boxed food.

6: The same company that makes metal detectors for airports also sells them to food manufacturers, who use the devices to test processed meats for stray wires, metal shards, and hypodermic needles.

7: The ingredients list for Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups doesn’t include…strawberries.

8: Animal feed given to factory-farmed cows contains rendered roadkill and euthanized cats and dogs, as well as plastic pellets as a cheap form of “roughage.”

9: There are more than 80 ingredients in one Oscar Mayer Lunchables Breaded Chicken and Mozzarella sandwich.

10: The FDA allows 19 maggots and 74 mites in a three-and-a-half-ounce can of mushrooms.

Processed foods that are bad for your diet:

  • Canned foods with large amounts of sodium or fat
  • Breads and pastas made with refined white flour instead of whole grains
  • Packaged high-calorie snack foods such as chips and candies
  • Frozen fish sticks and frozen dinners that are high in sodium
  • Packaged cakes and cookies
  • Boxed meal mixes that are high in fat and sodium
  • Sugary breakfast cereals
  • Processed meats

When you go grocery shopping, stick with NATURAL FRESH WHOLE FOODS. Fruits, veggies, poultry ext. STAY AWAY FROM THE INSIDE OF YOUR LOCAL GROCERY STORE!!!!

This wont be easy but this is a lifestyle, and a healthy one at that. This is serious. No one understands or believes that what you put in your body is a HUGE deal. Maybe you have to experience a heart attack to accept the idea and to change your lifestyle. I’m here to help. It’s going to go suck at times and hurt at times but you can do this. MIND OVER MATTER. Find your control, because right now you have none.

Suck it up and one day you won't suck in

If you love food more then you love your health, don’t bothering following me.
