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?

I have never been in a grocery store with out a produce section or one that did not sell wheat bread....
Good job on taking personal responsibility away from fat people
:clap:

I've read up on it. Whole foods are less likely -- and more expensive -- to exist in inner-city markets.
I would very much like to see a credible source cited for that 2nd sentence.


Btw consumers decide on what a markets sells ....

Of course with the exception of more efficient cars, or lighter smaller cheaper cars and light bulbs. Don't gimme that market decides shit either, our country is full of Banks and Auto makers that should be no longer. Capitalism is for the poor, the wealthy and powerful prefer socialism. Your free market romanticism matches your economic class exactly as intended. :geek:

So does your market not carry wheat bread or produce?

Well, you're wrong again, as usual. When people who are forced to feed a family on a very limited budget cannot afford to buy the kinds of foods Sally described and keep dinner on the table for a month. Of course, if you had even just a few functioning brain cells, you might be able to figure out the obvious for yourself.


So five hundred dollars a month on a ebt card isn't enough to feed a family of three nutritional meals?

Stfu and go outside....

Take it up with people who've actually studied it.


Limited resources and lack of access to healthy, affordable foods.
Low-income neighborhoods frequently lack full-service grocery stores and farmers’ markets where residents can buy a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products (Beaulac et al., 2009; Larson et al., 2009). Instead, residents – especially those without reliable transportation – may be limited to shopping at small neighborhood convenience and corner stores, where fresh produce and low-fat items are limited, if available at all. One of the most comprehensive reviews of U.S. studies examining neighborhood disparities in food access found that neighborhood residents with better access to supermarkets and limited access to convenience stores tend to have healthier diets and reduced risk for obesity (Larson et al., 2009).


When available, healthy food is often more expensive, whereas refined grains, added sugars, and fats are generally inexpensive and readily available in low-income communities (Drewnowski, 2010; Drewnowski et al., 2007; Drewnowski & Specter, 2004; Monsivais & Drewnowski, 2007; Monsivais & Drewnowski, 2009). Households with limited resources to buy enough food often try to stretch their food budgets by purchasing cheap, energy-dense foods that are filling – that is, they try to maximize their calories per dollar in order to stave off hunger (Basiotis & Lino, 2002; DiSantis et al., 2013; Drewnowski & Specter, 2004; Drewnowski, 2009). While less expensive, energy-dense foods typically have lower nutritional quality and, because of overconsumption of calories, have been linked to obesity (Hartline-Grafton et al., 2009; Howarth et al., 2006; Kant & Graubard, 2005).


When available, healthy food – especially fresh produce – is often of poorer quality in lower income neighborhoods, which diminishes the appeal of these items to buyers (Andreyeva et al., 2008; Zenk et al., 2006).

Low-income communities have greater availability of fast food restaurants, especially near schools (Fleischhacker et al., 2011; Larson et al., 2009; Simon et al., 2008). These restaurants serve many energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods at relatively low prices. Fast food consumption is associated with a diet high in calories and low in nutrients, and frequent consumption may lead to weight gain (Bowman & Vinyard, 2004; Pereira et al., 2005).

Wheat bread turns to sugar the instant it hits your gut, and gets turned into fat in the bloodstream. Fast-acting carbs like that are quite fattening.


Sugar dumpling....
I'm a maintenance mechanic in federally subsidized housing....(project maintenance man)
I don't have to read a study on people living off the guberment Teat ....
I know some work and need the help and I also know guberment handouts is a way of life for some...


Besides that, you don't think a supermarket that sells flour And cooking oil doesn't sell produce and whole wheat bread??

:rofl:

Besides around here welfare recipient's can call a cab to The store on the taxpayer dime...
