This brings me to another question probably deserving of it's own thread. If sterotypes are true why do we call them sterotypes?
Because facts are racists.

I would agree with this is how I understand that I manage my weight.

In my contemplations I believe that I lack better fitness, because of the lack, or inadequacy, of health/cooking/nutrition education in my elementary schooling; and I wonder if the emphasis on other disciplines is over-blown? It's a difficult problem, because underpriviledged children are probably at a considerable disadvantage, because adequate health education would enter into criticising the personal homelife of the child and his family - why don't they know how to do things right?

Attractive people enjoy the halo effect. They are thought of a smarter, more ethical, and harder working.
The income difference can be as much as $250,000 in a life time.
It's true, because I am not very attractive and I do not want to work, but the psychiatrist diagnosed me as schizophrenic.

Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality

So, we are imagining fat people stuffing themselves with fatty foods?

Got ya. Thanks for clearing that up.

Without a solid diet there is no point in trying anything else. I would first recommend including more chicken breast and brown rice into your diet. It's dirt cheap and super easy to calculate macronutrients.
http://www.fitwatch.com/qkcalc/caloriede...ulator.php Use this or another calculator to get an idea of how much you should be eating for your desired result. And here's an easy way to only have to cook 2 or 3 times a week. Take 7 boneless skinless chicken breasts and cut them into small pieces. Let's say 2 cm sized pieces. Put a few tablespoons of EV olive oil in a large sautee pan and lighly fry. Toss in veggies of your choice. I always go with onions, peppers, celery, etc. Get some good stir fry action going and add seasoning to taste. Combine chicken with 1.5 cups of cooked brown rice per breast. So ~10-11 in this case. Mix together and fry in pan until rice is starting to crisp a little. You can also at this point add something like soy or lemon pepper sauce if you wish. Keep in fridge and eat 2 cups worth 3 times a day. Or separate into 7 individual containers and take em on the go.

Just an excuse to be near the buttermilk ranch dressing.

That doesn't surprise me. If I were a business owner I would want the most attractive staff I could find. As the owner it's my responsibility to hire those that will benefit the business and the customers. Just look at Hooters. They wouldn't exist if they hired women that look like Kathy Bates.
