    And maternal dieting behaviour definitely influences girls' attitudes toward their bodies. Courtney Martin's book "Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters" has some good discussion about this issue (along with many other factors that influence body image and eating disorders in young women--it's not just about the media). I haven't seen stats on it, but it's likely that it would also affect boys as well, although perhaps in different ways because of gender role modelling; however, I would think that they would still learn unhealthy eating behaviours too.

But when I have to go to a conventional store and it's staring me in the face, it's hard.

    And unfortunately that's exactly why they carry that stuff: because it's hard to say no to.
    So I've started reading "It Starts With Food", and the first few chapters talk about exactly that - how junk food is engineered to create cravings and dopamine responses and make you WANT to eat that food. Makes me wonder - how is it that junk food is legal, but marijuana isn't? Maybe the whole "just say no" campaign should be broadened to include junk food.

    ODG. What about "eat some MEAT"? I'll see your headdesk and raise you a facepalm.

    I have a good friend from The Cleve, and as part of our good-natured bashing of each other im always ripping on her for the lake catching fire back in the 70s. Her response is always, "Uhh, it wasnt the lake, it was the RIVER, duh!!"
    "Since going primal, I've found that there are very few problems that cannot be solved with butter and/or bacon fat."

    I still won't go in that lake, though. That shit's disgusting. At one point you could catch hepatitis from the water.

    While volunteering at a Junior Ranger Camp today I overheard an obese mom telling another mom, "Yeah, we go through a gallon of sweet tea a day at my house! A GALLON! Haha!". She sounded like she was bragging?

    Um... yeah. Because no one ever craves bread or eats more than a slice at a time.

    Seriously? We're supposed to eat pasta for its high fluid content???

    Scientists aren't exactly sure why, but eating calcium-rich foods is more effective than taking calcium supplements.
    Maybe because our bodies actually want food!

    Fat monkeys put on diet - Telegraph

    Synopsis: Monkeys were fed bread, monkeys became fat. Monkeys stopped eating bread, monkeys lost weight.

    Does no one see the connection here?
