For the longest time I came to the same conclusions as you guys about poor people being fat they must not be starving but then you realize..
All the food they are eating is loaded with saturated and trans fat as well as sodium. Cheaper food like Ramen noodles at like .39 cents a meal (one packet is over 2000mg of Sodium, 2000mg being a daily serving) and the 1$ menus at McDonald's are what these people can afford to eat and eat alot of. That is why most poor people are so fat. Its bad nutrition it's an over load of un-healthy fat and sodium.
Then comes the rest like being lazy not working out or having a job which leads to being fat too but I think the nutrition part really hits home.
Not defending any of the ridiculousness that goes on I hate it as much as the next guy but this is just something to consider for the honest poor folk who look fat and happy not that you can't be happy even if your poor.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you F*** with me, I'll kill you all.
