First off, Happy 5th Anniversary to this blog. I've been blogging a lot longer than I have ever done a diet. So kudos to me :-)
I'm really tired of the stupidity of "Let's Move." Not only might it take food from the hungry, it most likely won't work and be a colossal waste of time and money. Even the creator of the Zone diet thinks it will fail. Granted not for the same reasons I do. Sure kids need their vegetables and play but the better idea would be to use the money to make sure all schools have gym classes and healthy and tasty lunches.
Oh, and guess what, if you are fat, and your parents are fat, they are to blame. They were bad parents. I don't care if you're on the honor roll. Your parents made you fat. Therefore, they are unfit parents, you need to be put in a foster home with some thin folks. It doesn't matter if it isn't a loving home and your uprooted. As long as your thin!
Or how about the opposite? Hate your fat child instead! A new study in the journal Obesity reveals that parents offen are harder on fatter children. This study showed that parents would more likely to help a thinner child buy a car than a fatter one.
I doubt Michelle Obama is reading this. But Let's Move will cause eating disorders and heap undeserved shame on both parents and children. And fatness will not be cured. There have been fat people since the dawn of time or at least as 25,000 years. We are not going anywhere and some of us are tired of being ostresized.
