Actually, we're going the American way :(
It's been in the newspapers here a few times.
I can't remember the % but we (europeans) keep getting fatter and fatter.

I don't know if this is my bursting sense of patriotism speaking or what, but the woman (and she's a lot of woman!) on the right is HOT! If eating McDonald's does that to a woman, I think I'm going to order Big Macs and fries for all the women within a mile radius of me!

The American Woman is an instant reminder of the great girth of our beloved United States of America. We're transcontinental!

God bless America, and God bless America's bigger women!

Don't know whether any of the UK people around here have been watching the "if..." series on BBC 2, but this week's one is "What if we don't stop eating?"

Answer....U.S. of A :P

Confusion with no point and a more serious steryotype within the US that is far worse.

Sterotypes are almost always based on something real in the first place. The fact of the matter is that most of America IS overweight, over 50%, and over 30% are obese!


Though I must say, I'm not sure where all these fat people are hiding.. in a croud it doesn't seem like more than 10% are even overweight, most of the time the people I see are really quite skinny.

Ok, I have to comment on this. I just came home to the US from a week in France. I have to say that without a doubt, there are, on average, more people overweight here.

One thing you have to keep in mind tho.... we are a lot bigger than a lot of the countries that we are being compared to and I'm not sure that's being taken into effect. I still think we, as a country, are unhealthy eaters... but European countries have fat people too.

And besides... it's like a french man told me... their women might be skinnier... but that also means they've got no boobs for the most part. Take your pick. I'd take a girl with 5-10 extra pounds over a stick anyday.

Some people take what they can get.
