They're fat not because of how much they eat but the fact that they eat processed, fast-acting carbohydrates in breads, cereals, fruit juices and soft drinks as opposed to eating whole foods like corn, beans, fruits, leafy greens and other slow-acting carbohydrates.

Fast-acting 'bad' carbs in processed foods turn to sugar almost instantly; the body cannot use all this instant energy and stores it as fat. Whole foods do not turn into those sugars and are not stored as fat. If you're poor and live in inner cities, your access to whole foods is limited, and what is available is usually more expensive than what suburbanites can buy at their supermarkets. Food stores in poor areas usually charge more for everything they sell because they know their customers don't have enough money to go elsewhere; they're trapped.


When bad stuff is what is in the stores where you live, what are you going to do?

"Bad" foods and "good" foods exist in EVERY store in EVERY neighborhood.
These people eat the "Bad" foods because they are too lazy to expend the effort to actually cook a healthy meal.

Never bought it myself. Look around for deals on meat and veggies. Don't one stop shop. I coupon like a motherfucker also. If you expend the time to actually SHOP instead of just throw whatever you want into the cart, you'll come out on top. I bought almost three weeks' worth of groceries for a little over $100 last week. Shop at the ethnic stores, too.

What are your sources for coupons?

Just think of who is really benefiting from the food stamp program. Here's a clue, it ain't the recipients.

That's the truth, it's nothing but another government handout to big business.
I'll never understand why people support programs that directly benefit people they abhor.
