That's true, the man really truly cares about others.
No wonder they've been losing market share.
WOW! They will actually have small, medium and large! What a unique idea!
Counter help always became confused when Id ask for a small drink.
No one needs a whole pizza.
Maybe you need to grow a thicker skin. I'm fat, and I don't feel insulted by any of the posts (except the nanny-stater ones).
Webmd and Mayo clinic websites admit it isn't perfect and that other methods may be needed to accurately calculate body fat for atheletes and large boned people.
Fun to watch nanny society turning to put another group in its sights. Smokers told you so.
Didn't realize Depp was so short
5'7" = really 5'5" in Hollywood.
Those little plastic red baskets lined with wax paper piled with fries...
I realize not everyone that is heavy is due to diabetes....
Your commment just seemed really smug and uninformed...
I too have lost a lot of body fat (65lbs) in the last 6 months, and then gained 40lbs back in muscle, yet I still had gone down size n half(on top) and a whole size on the bottom.
There are a few obese people in my family as well.
And BMI is a Medical Standard to go by. It doesn't seem natural, at least I agree with that. According to medical journals, at 5'7, I should weight 145lbs... but they haven't seen the big boned women in my family...
I do understand that point as well and agree.
BTW, Mister, I'm 28, and thanks for age comparison! LOL Sweets, ever since I started my estrogen therapy my taste for sweets has gone down to none! And my eating habits changed drastically on their own. Unfortunately, I went from eating overportioned meals, and fruity/sugary snacks to only being hungry for maybe two meals a day if that.
So now my diabetes is even harder to control, but easier with the medicine that it was before. Cause not eating is almost as bad as when I was eating!
Activity has been a great help in my blood pressure though... have you noticed that change too?
And most those doctors, have never had it themselves, on top of that, they haven't seen all the millions of patients that have it.
It is true not everyone digests sugar the same way, however, gaining weight doesn't make one diabetic. That's a fact!
Wendys has discontinued The Biggie? That just ain't right.
I had no idea diabetes was building in my system, I can look back to the age of 6 or 7 and see a huge change in my life one summer, that I didn't stick to, but put me on a roller coaster to diabetes.
but I didn't get fat first!
Sugar stocks up in some people, and lack of sugar affects some people. Diabetes is a specific disease, not the fault of the irresponsible eater, as I've seen posted here.
Absolutely spot on. I also think that the Food Police should be the next huge federal agency formed by the 'conservative' Bush Administration. Each household will be assigned a Food Policeman - thereby solving the problems of obesity and unemployment simultaneously as new FPs are hired in each city.
actually the bigger problem is the high fructose corn syrup that is put into these large drinks and canned soda and just about everything else.
If you cut it out of your diet you will watch you appetite decrease sustaintally. And you would never be ABLE to drink this much soda in one sitting.
this addititive suppresses your "full" mechanism. Start buying things with sugar again and you will see what i mean.
Oh and don't be fooled Diet soda is even worse
That's where the epicenter of the epidemic really is.
No one forces people to consume these.
If people didn't buy them, the fast food joints and soda companies wouldn't offer those sizes.
You CAN get a bottle of water there.
I remember our big monthly "night out" was to Shakey's Pizza.
Thanks for the memories!
Think outside the pizza box. Nothing wrong with large if the government mandates healthy toppings, like liver, brewers yeast, and blackstrap molasses.
I lost around 10 lbs. over a few months just by reducing the amount of soft drinks in my diet. Didn't change anything else in my diet or exercise level during that time. I now drink flavored selzer water (0 calorie) at work, where I used to drink several cans of soda per day. Now, losing another 10 lbs. would get me pretty close to my ideal weight.
While I must point out that this(and other recent moves)by Wendy's is just a lot of P.R.BullSh*T,"Biggie" fries were GREAT for a couple of people!If ONE person ate them all by themselves,then they OVERINDULGED!Is there something in The US Constitution that prohibits this?No,there ISN'T!!This whole fast food scenario has been framed with HEALTH CARE COSTS(The Government)!!!There was a time when each individual(and family)were responsible for their respective HEALTH CARE!!!!!Now that The Government is involved,lokk forward to Government Health Care Workers monitoring WHAT WE EAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wish the food police would choke on a veggie and leave my fast food alone! Give me the fat!
I haven't read through all of the replies, but Domino's does have a "Personal Size" pizza. It's too cheap for them to deliver, but if you pick it up, it's just fine.
My other problem is I never used to watch the number of grams in anything. So I find myself eating extra pieces of bread as there isn't a carb supplement that I really like
To me, a 16" pizza IS "personal size." :-)
You should have tried my "low carb" pizza I made at home. Browned ground round spread on the bottom of a glass baking pan, topped with green peppers, onions, mounds of shredded mozzarella and provolone, a few splashes of Ragu pizza sauce, and topped wall to wall with pepperoni and ham. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, and eat.
Sounds good, unlike my vision of hell in #121.
... and who needs high butter fat premium ice cream (me!) ... ? We can all have ice milk. :-(
In a related story, McDonalds says goodbye to Tupac.
Some Friday nights my large family will get two Costco pizzas. We end up eating it for breakfast and sometimes lunch the next day.
I think that would be a good idea. There isn't an obesity problem in North Korea.
It's interesting that you mention soda. Since my last pregnancies I have had a habit of drinking water more than anything else. My husband loves his soda, though. I will only drink it if I am sneaking some out of his cup. Yet, if I am given a 12 oz.can of soda I usually end up leaving exactly half.
That really pissed me off when they got rid of the SuperSize drink... I used to get a SuperSized Iced Tea and a breakfast burrito.
Now, I go to Quik Trip, which is a convenience store. They've got fresh-brewed iced tea, and a 54oz thermal mug. It's great!
You might check out your closest convenience store.
I remember I tried the Hardees Monster Thickburger the week it came out. I drove 10 miles out of my way and I ordered that, medium fries and a Coke. I am a small and thin man, but somehow managed to eat all that in an hour. That meat just sat in my stomach, I literally wasn't hungry for the whole next day. Good riddance to the Biggie, Super Size and all those, one must really be a lardo to eat all that regularly!
Pizza is always better the next day like lasagna and spaghetti.
When some L/L (liberal/Lefist) made that movie about living on fast food.
Hmmm, I think, I will go get a couple of Wendy's Jr. baconcheeseburgers.
Ooooh I had a couple of those the other night when I was in a rush to get to work. Those babies really hit the spot. I rarely eat at fast food places but when I do, I gotta have it.
But If I wait till after I do my walks, and eat, I am extremely refreshed!
My doctor wants me to eat small meals/snack through-out the day, but I have no desire to eat until I feel hunger pain. You ever get that way? I know it's not healthy, so I force myself to drink a glass of milk, or juice when I should have a meal. Or a bowl of grain cereal, low sugar, low in HFCS.
I know I'm under a 2000 cal diet daily, some weekends I go over. Getting all the right nutrients in a day has become a problem. Losing too much potassium and who knows what!
NO!This would require a plurality,and (therefor)would fail!Human nature(being what it is)would imagine that everyone else is being extra careful about what they eat,etc.,etc.,and that would free up everyone else to do as they please!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RIGHT ON!And Ground Round(85%)is THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!
Well that's basically how I live now. LOL!
Back in my college daze, I used to drink twice that much Mountain Dew in an evening's studying.
I wasn't fat.
I was wired, though ...
