Simple Diet Choices

Liberals and Progressives within America’s borders love to rant, rail, and rave about “food deserts” and “food insecurity” and at the same time about America’s “obesity epidemic,” which they oddly and counterintuitively claim disproportionately impacts the same demographics who are supposedly suffering under those “food deserts” and “food insecurity.”

In some ways the lament of the Liberals and Progressives makes a certain logical sense. Within their internal logic structure outcomes can never be because of choices. Hence, all diet-related issues and outcome must be due to external, societal oppression and must be rectified by the state.

Look, I like fast food as much as the next person, probably even more than most do, but I make the choice not to try to make it mainstay of my diet. Others, especially those who are supposedly The Poor, should make the same choice. Doing so would improve both their economic and health outcomes, the latter dramatically.

And, while the Left and their minority tenants make a lot of excuses for why simple shopping and cooking is beyond the capacity of the poor, that’s all they are – excuses. Even in New York City it’s not that difficult to eat healthily for minimal expenditures – and I’m not talking about trying to live on a diet of bean, rice, and pasta.

All this takes is the will to make simple diet choices and to learn – there’s an internet! – how to enact them. If that’s actually and truthfully too much for some, then that’s simply evolution speaking.

    Race isn’t really a factor in bodybuilder’s dietary boudaries.

    We generally all eat mostly the same – No rubbish!
    The illustrations in the article reflect homo’s diets at the top and fatasses choices at the bottom.

    “…simple shopping and cooking is beyond the capacity of the poor” doesn’t make any sense?

    They’re too dumb to go to a store and cook a meal??

    Race isn’t a factor in bodybuilders’ diets but it is a factor in everyday diet choice, or rather, culture which is deemed based upon race is so.

    As for the rest – Your diet – and I know approximately what it has to be – is utterly and totally unhealthy and unbalanced for anyone who isn’t expending the calories and damaging and rebuilding muscle tissue at the rate that you do. What’s shown in the bottom of the pics is somewhat more reasonable for the average, relatively sedentary person.

  3. Buffet Says:

    I can’t even spell sedentary man.
    My job is very physical (I am an HVACR Master). I spend the majority of my days climbing up and down from rooftops of enormous commercial buildings, which are often hundreds of yards in length.

    As for my training……
    Put it this way, I require a MINIMUM of five thousand calories a day just to maintain, plus additional amounts for growth.

    The sight of the great black misshapen pachyderms referred to makes me wretch! Why anyone would desire to resemble a bulbous stinking turd is beyond my comprehension.

    In some ways I got to say lucky you. My job is very sedentary. I work lounging on a futon and my “commute” is from bed to kitchen for coffee to that futon.

    On the other hand, I do still train – kata, weapons forms and pell & cutting work, endurance / cardio, and some strength training – the latter mostly to maintain use of some of my more damaged parts.

    And yes, despite far less activity than you, I need close to 4500 calories a day to maintain my weight (160#) because I’ve got a screwed-up, hyperfast metabolism. Hyperfast to the point that hypoglycemic shot is a regular risk if I forget to eat.

  5. Buffet Says:

    Sounds like you, unlike the vast majority, have an excellent grasp of your unique needs – and act accordingly. Bravo!

    Damaged parts? Is there hope of repair?

  6. jonolan Says:

    Given the current state of the medical tech, no; there’s no real hope for repair. Improvements could be made but those sorts of prosthetic implants still have a lot of issues.

    I’m waiting until I loose too much function before I have them start replacing my joints and spinal disks. As long as I can still get around OK’ish, I’m not having anything “fixed.”

  7. Buffet Says:

    Is your condition congenital or the result of trauma (accident)?

    *This is not morbid curiosity. I am a very empathetic person.

    If I appear overly inquisitive, I really DO care.
    Tell me to piss off if you wish. I’ll still read your column.

  8. jonolan Says:

    I brought it up so it’d be wrong to be pissed at any question about it, Buffet.

    It’s from traumas. Some it was caused or, at least setup by, extensively physically punishing activities while I was still growing ( I hit 6′ by 11 years-old and didn’t stop there). Most, however, was the result of a cartel soldier being a little quicker than me and hitting the cover I was diving for with a RPG-7 round and then a later motorcycle accident.
