Very strong gym culture in eastern Europe. Polish eat alot of simple home cooked food.

Stuffing their faces then inside in their new pcp duster.

They do say this is affecting less well off people and the working classes more. I suppose the D4s won't be as affected with their soy lattes, veganism and the cycling to the office....:pac:

Then again McDonalds was packed out in Dun Laoghaire last time I was there.

By a few years but as you said many factors effect that.

I think Lithuania has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, think it's a problem. Russia also.

Life expectancy in Russia and Ukraine = 71
Lithuania = 75
Latvia = 74
Ireland = 82


Although if our obesity keeps going through the roof that may change.

Ask someone after leaving a chipper if they like vegetables.

"No I hate vegetables...uggh"

What have you got there?

"Bag of chips...what ya think"

And what are chips made of?

"Erm spuds".

Didn't you know spuds are a vegetable?

======================================


Point I'm making is you can make vegetables tasty. You don't have to deep fry them to make them tasty, there are other ways. It just takes a little education. Oh sorry, did I say education. God forbid.

We're living too long. Should be lookng at things the other way. Encourage smoking, booze and fast food from the age of 16. Life expectancy would be about 50. Problem solved.

Yes, I understand this.
I just think to have a healthy lifestyle and diet isimportant.
Sometimes people focus to much on BMI.
Now I'm not for a second encouraging people to be over weight.

Yeah I think the BMI thing is overplayed. Most rugby players and weightlifters would be called overweight/obese on the BMI scale.

We are subjected to heavy marketing campaigns from these companies through email and social media.

People are just lazy when it comes to home cooking and making bad choices. Example, woman standing next to me in Aldi the other day clearly obese spends time browsing the mince meat. Picks up the 20% fat as opposed to the 5%. Simple choices can make a huge difference.
I hate allotting any time to grocery shopping. It’s so tedious. How are some of ye hanging around so long to observe what other people are buying?

20% mince would be a good deal cheaper than 5%. Maybe she was on a strict budget?

I’m not overweight and buy mince of differing fat percentages. You need them for different dishes. And, IMO, sugar is more of a problem than fat.

It does if you run and lift weights regularly.
Aaaaah, I think she was being tongue-in-cheek there.

OCD packaging needs to be flawless.

Anyway my point is simple choices make a big difference. Leaner meat, brown instead of white bread, lower fat cheese, low fat cheese, light milk etc etc.
No one is asking someone to eat a plate of lettuce, people think "oh I'd miss this and I'd miss that on a diet". You can have all those still just not as much and often.

I hate diets, your eating habits should be for life.
