Re: Do you guys do this..??

I know EXACTLY what you mean. I do the same thing and I notice it especially when I'm shopping at Giant Eagle. It bothers me to no end too. I see alot of chips, SODA, cookies, white breads, and it's very disturbing. I guess I kept the "observing" thing kind of repressed or hidden, but I have to admit, YES I do notice this and it's very sad. It's no wonder why there are so many more people getting diseases in the U.S compared to like Japan and stuff. Don't people read the paper or watch the news about how dangerous all this junk is? I guess they don't care, so what am I to do but to bring up my child to eat as healthy as she wants. Whatever

Re: Do you guys do this..??

Hahaha. i've noticed that too.

I put my stuff on the conveyor belt and its mainly bags of veggies, can or 2 of beans, cat food, soy milk, free-range eggs, tofu products and then when I put the divider down the person behind plonks down a HUGE bag of animal parts, liters and liters of coke, handfuls of cool-aid, white bread, frozen ready meals, cans of Chef Boyadee, ketchup etc!!! I just stand there wondering, "where the hell is your food?" coz really most people don't buy food, they buy science projects!!

Re: Do you guys do this..??

I think most people don't have a CLUE how to eat. And I pretty much think most people don't READ!!!

I think its part of a larger intellectual apathy in the US.

People are very knowledgeable about the latest sneakers, Britneys daily activities and whatever is happening on the popular tv shows but ask them about what is going on in other countries and they don't know, ask them about any recent scientific breakthroughs, they don't know, or ask them about WHY junk food is bad and they don't know.

On the movie "Super Size Me" a couple of young guys were telling the cameraman proudly that they eat at McDonalds EVERY DAY but they're not fat because they work out, and therefore, they must be healthy. But, in their small minds they had no CLUE about the affects to their livers, kidneys etc. I was thinking "have you EVER read anything - even a magazine you numbskull??"

Dietary health info is SO accessable that I'm amazed that so few know. Its as though we were under a communist regime and the govt was hiding all the 'eat healthy' literature!!! hahaa

Re: Do you guys do this..??

I do that too, but in a slightly different manner. I get jealous of the healthy looking senior citizens with all the TV dinners, high fat items, and junk food....Thinking, gee, "How did they get to that age eating all that junk and I can't?" It must be the genes.

The real fun starts when other people look at my food. I get comments from over-weight people wanting to know how I can eat all that fruit and not gain weight. I just smile and say, "exercise?" What I really want to say is, "I don't eat a whole bag of chips in one sitting or lots of sweets." Then there's also the fun when my 6 year old is with me and comments on how he can't wait to dig into the salmon or the raw peppers. Boy, do I really get stares and smiles then.
