Do You Live in a Fat State?

Check out CNN's study of obesity in the US from 1984 to 2004... Which state are you?

All I can say is two factors contribute to this:

1) the processed food craze (fast foods and instant dishes)... that, we all know already...
2) our middle-class obsession with doing things easier and faster by using gadgets - instead of manual labor like our ancestors did - are simply making us fatter.

take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator
walk & bike instead of drive
stir by hand instead of using a mixer
chop instead of using an auto-chopper
scrub the floor instead of mopping
brush ur teeth instead of using electronic brushes
cook instead of microwaving
wash dishes by hand instead of using the dishwasher
air dry your laundry instead of using the dryer
garden instead of shopping
read instead of watching tv (yes, turning pages is better exercise than pressing the remote!)
if you gotta drive, then drive a stick shift instead of an auto

can you think of more?????
