Will all Thais be fat in ten years’ time?

Recommended Posts

I see people everyday that are forty pounds over weight and I think that's sad and feel so sorry for them.

I'm only thirty pounds over weight.

Technology, my friends may be the culprit for obesity. If we are still employed in physical work, more and more electronic and mechanical devices take on our physical labor. Many, if not most jobs totally rely on technology to complete tasking. Those who think they use their minds to do their work, do so with considerable technological assistance; you don’t even have to sharpen your pencil, fill your pen, turn pages, or go to a library.

Children are no longer physical in their play. They no longer play outside hours every day. They do not even get up and down to change the TV channel; or walk to school or the store, or cut the grass with a push mower. For many, play amounts to sitting in an armchair with a video control in your hands.

Our food is a double-edged cut. With all the fast-foods, pre-packaged foods, instant this and microwavable that, we not have to cook our meals or turn-on/light-up the stove, prepare and cook the food, or wash the dishes and clean-up by hand afterward. Whether you are eating out or taking it home, your foods are likely to be cooked elsewhere by persons unknown, packaged in throw-away containers, and be more fatty and less healthy than your previous fare.

People simply do not live, work, eat, sleep or play physically anymore—sure, some people exercise and/or play sports. However, those physical activities pale in comparison to the increase in labor savings devices, mechanized transport, electronic entertainment, and an abundance of available fatty foods and drinks.

And I missed going to the gym today, never mind that's only 2454 days in a row.

Oh well, will try again tomorrow.

At least I am not having 2 or 3 biscuits a night.

Surely that would be better than drinking alcohol every night as many do.

Main causes: sugar-saturation in goodies, more money to eat more fried crap, internet causing distractions from activities.

Thank 7/11.....

They're everywhere in the country with their chips, 5-10 baht cookies & unhealthy snacks.....They're entrenching themselves in areas long before the McD's & BK's, etc....

They are the convenient trailblazers & pace setters.......

The flag bearers for the obesity brigade.....

And new 7-11 store opens around the world every 2 hours !!!
