What ever happened to good old cereal? They got some pretty healthy stuff to offer, and if you look hard enough you'll find something tasty too.

However, I'm not fat. And I eat meat, alot. Of course I don't have much processed food. Then again my extended family isn't fat either.

If your that concerned that you're reading nutritional information you really shouldn't be eating at fast food restaurants anyway. As for those of you who are gloating about not being fat, don't forget that cholesterol will kill you too...

EDIT: This topic is almost begging for the creation of a BMI poll.

Hey All,
I have to say with all certainty, yes, I myself have eaten things that would make some people cringe, but that was in my teen and early twenties,(showing my age a bit here); but that has to be the most disgusting thing I've ever seen and I used to like Hungry Man dinners at one time, but oh boy, that one takes the taco!!!
My only vice in my youth was when I was feeling low in my insecurities I would buy a Sarah Lee French Strawberry Cheesecake and eat it half frozen with a tub of thawed Cool-Whip on top, THE WHOLE THING! But like I say, I was in my youth at the time, I eat a lot better now, have to. :rolleyes: :P

Blessed Be,

For me, fatness would be a gift. I'm tall 1.86 and my weight is 55 Kg. And I'm 16. You would faint if you see me naked.

And these aren't jokes. :rolleyes:

For those of us in the U.S. this is 6'1" and 121 lbs. to save you the conversion. This leaves you in the middle of the underweight BMI section, that is very skinny! Myself, I'm 18 and I'm 6'2" (1.88 m) and weigh 180 lbs. (82 kg) which places me in the upper half of the healthy BMI section. Unfortunately, much of that weight is concentrated in my gut and I have stretch marks. :(

I'm a medium build, at my perfect weight, and I eat vegetarian, I'm only 5'7 and weigh around 150lbs. I stopped eating meat because most of it looks and tastes disgusting, and has a texture that makes me hewde.

Obviously, you don't eat good meat.

Depending on where you live, this could just mean that the bar is set pretty low in your community. Coming from the fattest state in America, I know...

That said, my BMI borders on unhealthy, depending on which test thingy I look at... 160 lbs (72.5 kg) and 6'3" (1.91 m).

Look at more than the BMI - your scores are close to mine yet I can run 5K in 20 minutes, participate in triathalons (minis up to 1.5K swim, 40K cycle,10K run), ran a half marathon, cycle for 2+ hrs....

Not that I'm tooting my own horn, it's just that there are other things to look at. Cardio, strength (here I score badly), core body strength (better - fits my needs in rock climbing), BMI index, as was pointed out by Other_Guy how said mass is (disproportionally) dispersed over one's frame.

BMI alone is a poor indicator of health - it is a rough tool only.

That's the low end of healthy, not the high end. I know this thanks to disbelief followed by Wikipedia, a calculator, and understanding. I'll be getting satori any day now.

When I was a kid, I had great abs. In middle school I did 58 sit-ups in 60 seconds.

Then I had kids.

I tried to do some crunches today... I was winded at 12. :(

I definately think it's time to start working off the left over baby fat, though.

Oh dang, I just can't get over what a horrible thing that person in the link said. I am shocked to my supposedly cholesterol covered foundation. Terrible. Dang it.

Can I really have heard them correctly? I just can't believe it. Apparently stuff that good is wasted on them. I mean, do people even know how good food is these days. I know a lot of people who would've killed for stuff that great. Jeez, America is overfed. Overfed to the point of thinking that food like that is why people are fat and unhealthy.

I tells ya, worst display of American... I don't even know what.

It's like no one has ever gone a minute without eating. Maybe I'm biased, having found out first hand what starvation is but, damn. People should appreciate that food like that exists at all, and I eat TV dinners all the time. I'm healthy.

When the heck did I say that? I am far from lonely, and all the other stuff more than makes up for any sadness I may feel.

FYT = Fixed Your Typo (I think), ie "This is what you should have said."

But really, a breakfast that gives you almost two and a half times your recommended daily intake of cholestorol could be dangerous to your health. Perhaps the writer of that article was a bit harsh, but you get his point - that food is majorly unhealthy.
