Fluff Debate Causes Obesely Different Opinions

The makers of FLUFF are claiming their sandwich spread does not promote obesity, unhealthy eating habits or tooth decay.

Some supporters are standing by the product maker hoping to elevate this white gooey sandwich spread, usually combined with peanut butter, to supreme status by making it part of their official 'State Sandwich'.

"Why the hell not, it's easy, the kids like it and it's fast," said one supporter whose own body fat was busting at the seams of her clothing. "This is a fast world with fast food and if you think I'm going to stand around and cook 'good-for-you' shit all day...well guess again...I don't have time for that."

While some school officials argue that these sandwiches promote better caloric intake for their students, others argue that students are fat enough and getting less exercise and adding this kind of food product as part of the school lunch program is insane.

One official said it is the wrong choice to offer children because they don't know any better.

"We've got a whole new generation sitting on their fat little asses in front of a television playing video games all day and here we are shoving this high calorie treat down their throat," she said. "If you look at some of these youngsters, the only thing that is toned on their body is their thumbs from using the game controlers and that's just wrong."

In 2005, statistics were released on this ever growing problem. 17.1% of children were determined to be obese and of those 13.9% were between the ages of 2 - 5 years old.

Websites have popped up all over the internet to help promote better eating habits to help offset the alarming statistics of obesity.

One such site claims you can lose 9 pound every 11 days.

Hey Bill,

Save the car and the tree.

Here in California our Fluff problem is relegated to who has the biggest boobs or the most junk in the trunk.

I'll come for a visit but you better make me laugh! LOL

Have you ever though why does this problem exist more here. Its just not the eating habit but also the many other things which is equally important.

Here in US people hardly walk (dont know in big cities). Walking is the best exercise. exercise with machines is less effective than you do it outside the closed area. Try to walk as much as possible. Secondly, Drink plenty of water, We people do not know that effective use of water one can keep away many problems that arises in our body.
If one want to reduce wait, one way is drink as much water as possible. Also before having a meal.
Stop drinking coke / pepsi, etc during meals. If possible stop drinking those stuff.

Thats it for now, I have to leave. Thanks for reading.
