Weight Loss Quotes

History is apt or judge harshly those that sacrifice tomorrow for today.~Harold MacMillan

I a recent news story I’ve heard that the generation coming 10 years from now are the first generations to have a life expectancy lower than that we have now. It is the first time that this happens in the history of the human race. Usually the future generations get to live longer and better because of the technological advances of the past generations.

The industrialized scale at which fast food is taking over the world is the main cause of this lowering of life expectancy. Fast food kills with a smile on its face. Heck you have a smile on your face while fast food is killing you. Everybody loves eating fast food. It tastes so darn good.

The government is getting involved. The new tobacco companies are fast food companies. I wonder if happy meals will come with the picture of a big obese person on it and a big caption, Happy Meal Can Make You Fat or Our French Fries Can Cause Addiction. Would be fun to see this happen, and sad at the same time.

If you are overweight, you can’t blame McDonalds or KFC. They didn’t forced you to eat their unhealthy food. You knew it is unhealthy and you ate it. You are the one who has to live with the consequences: obesity and lots and lots of health problems.

The money you save by eating unhealthy fast food won’t be enough to cover your medical bills generated by unhealthy eating and obesity related diseases. Not by far.

The good news is that the school system is getting more and more involved. Our children need healthy eating education. We need healthy eating education. It is easy to stay in a corner and do nothing, letting our life and the life of our children get shorter and shorter. The difficult part is working at changing your habits and those of your child, so that you might live a longer and healthier life. It’s all up to you. What are you going to do next?
