There was a survey done not long ago here in Auss,and it turned out that the 20 to 35 age group here are the fattest in the world,right here in Australia.
I have said before though,it amazes me how much junk food the young one's today eat instead of a decent meal of meat and veggies.
I got all the excuses under the sun as to why they don't have time to cook a meal(gonna sound like an Old fuddy duddy now :lol
When my first wife and I were Married,we both worked,we had 3 kids and there was always a cooked meal for dinner on the table and we all sat and ate together as a family,yeah there were times we had Macca's or Pizza,but they were a treat.
Microwaves were only just coming in and were the size of a Television back then,so not everyone had one.
Today the young parents have all the mod cons in the kitchen to make life a damned sight quicker to cook a meal,yet they all say they don't have time to do it.
My daughter in law was watching me prepare a casserole for dinner once and asked how long from start to finish with making it and eating it,so I told her,all up? about 3 and a half hours(2 and a half for cooking)she said she didn't have that sort of time to prepare a meal like that.
I know they have a crock pot/slow cooker,so I said do the prep the night before turn it on as you leave for work and when you get home dinner is cooked,she said she still wouldn't have time,she likes to watch this and that on TV of a night.That one statement alone pissed me off to no end.
We have Macca's and KFC,along with all the other fast food joints just about on every corner,the kid's get bombarded with the ad's on TV all afternoon,with the free toy give away with every meal,it's become far to easy to eat s*** instead of something decent and today it's almost the staple diet of our nations,it's a sad fact but it's true.
Oh and one more thing,my kid's were out playing in the street when they got home from school, today they race into their rooms and sit behind their computers(just like we are now) and play games or surf the net,instead of getting some exercise,yet another sad fact but true.
