The thread about the hormones in the meat got me to thinking. My DDs bought me the Frontier House DVD for Christmas. We were watching it and remarking on how trimmed down everyone was getting. It was amazing that Gordon Clune thought he was wasting away when he was actually down to his ideal size. Even the ones who started off relatively thin, lost weight and looked better. And everyone's skin was so clear and healthy looking. I just odn't think the human frame is meant to carry much weight. I subsitute teach and I am just floored by hoe fat the children are. I;m not talking a little fat, I'm talking super, duper fat. In the elementary school, they are at least 30-40lbs over weight and in the highschool, 75-100lbs. We are in need of some major changes in the country if we are to survive.
