Someone I know on Facebook shared a post that showed a huge KFC soda for $2.99 with proceeds going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Next to the pic of the soda, it said:
"Buy a half gallon of soda (800 calories and 56 spoonfuls of soda) so KFC can donate a dollar to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes by putting yourself at increased risk of Type 2 diabetes. Who is it that dreams this shit up?"
So far, so good. Except when she shared the pic, her comment was "I so want one of these".

I was told by an overweight co-worker "Doing Atkins is not something that you can do forever, so as soon as you start eating regular again you will gain all the weight back, plus probably more. Everyone always does".
Try to explain I'm not doing "Atkins", but eliminated grains, sugar, etc., and no intention of ever adding them back. What a waste of breathe to someone who eats Doritos and Mountain Dew for breakfast, before a fast food lunch, candy bar afternoon snack, and has no intention of ever trying to get healthy.
Odd how the people with the unhealthiest lifestyles feel they should give health advice to healthy-looking people.

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
Im still waiting to suffer from the heart attack my CW coworkers say Im going to have from all the butter I eat.
Two "Funny CW Moments" today: 1) Co-worker brings in banana bread and assures me it's healthy because it's made with applesauce, oatmeal and fake sweetener. 2) Get a junk mail flyer advertising a frozen yogurt place. It has this hilarious scientific-looking bar graph from "Harvard" that supposedly proves eating yogurt, nuts and fruit helps people lose weight. If you actually read the scale on the chart, though, the people in this study lost half a pound over 4 years. That's pretty much meaningless. The same flyer talks about how you can get your supposedly healthy frozen yogurt on top of a brownie or a waffle.
