The Skinny on Obesity Laws

I am so sorry to get off the communications/technology bandwagon and instead talk about obesity but i just couldn’t help but mention that in Mississippi there are some thoughts that a law banning restaurants from serving obese people would be a good idea.

Actually, come to think of it, making it difficult allow for heavy people to eat would indeed probably increase their chances of losing weight. Imagine if you had to cook everything you ate.

Perhaps this needs to be extended to deliveries as well.

Here is an excerpt from an article on the matter:

State Rep. John Read, a Republican who is one of the bill’s three authors, says he wasn’t trying to offend anybody and never even expected the plan to become law.

"I was trying to shed a little light on the No. 1 problem in Mississippi," he says. The state has the highest obesity rate in the USA.

Incidentally, tomorrow there is a weigh in for TMC’s biggest loser competition to see who can lose the most weight by May. I haven’t formally joined the contest but if I do tomorrow, I think I may have to blog about it to keep myself on track.

It would be nice if local restaurants would deny me service till the contest is over.
