    It keeps getting wider and wider and wider...

    We still put out top-level elite athletes, Hollywood hard-bodies and scrawny starlets, but what has happened to the majority of us?

    Where did we go wrong? Can we roll back the weight as a society? How?

    Make fresh fruits and vegetables as affordable as McDonalds.

    shouldn't we just eat the salad on the dollar menu at mcdonalds? i'm not the mickey d's type, but it is not their fault. they have gone out of their way to reform their menu, and they have always had small portions in my opinion.

    i think that preparing food costs more time, but i argue, having been vegan for a few years, that the misconception of financial cost associated with plants is absurd. a happy meal is the same price as 10 pounds of potatoes or 3 pounds of carrots.

    There's also the fact that McDonald's tastes 1, 000X better.

    It's really quite simple.

    Eat less, do more.

    Many Americans are malnourished (we eat too much sugar and fat), we don't get enough exercise, therefore many of us are fat.

    What can we do about it?

    We can change our lifestyles and eating habits.

    Pretty simply to say and very difficult to do.
