Fatties are in a fog, according to a new study done in Dallas that says one in 10 obese people think they look just fine, thank you very much.
I might be one of them.
The U.S. Diet Guidelines seem severe to me.
According to this table, a guy my height (5 feet 10 inches) and age (over-35) ought to weigh 146 to 188 pounds. Since I’m not what you’d call a big-boned person, I’m supposed to weigh closer to 146 than 188.
If I weighed 146 pounds I could enter rooms like this.
But according to the federal guidelines, my current weight of 220 means I’m supposed to feel like this about myself.
I say stick that survey where the sun don’t shine…and pardon me while I go scarf some Taco Bell.
