I am back in Germany and really behind on my uploading schedule BECAUSE I am too lazy to press “upload” on my computer. In the mean time you guys will get a bunch of random blog posts.
After being in Florida for 2 weeks I learned something….I learned that America is land to the fat asses. I never knew this was a problem (well, I knew. I just pushed it to the back of my mind). I was not as conscious about the whole “fat ass” tendencies that us Americans tend to have -_- until I lived in Germany for awhile….. You are probably thinking. DUH HAYLEY EVERYONE KNOWS AMERICANS ARE FAT. Um yes but I never saw it as such an issue until I removed myself from the situation.
I have a few reasons as to why Americans are so fat. I will go into as little detail as I possibly can (because that is how I roll, I am a lazy fawk).
1st reason why us patriotic pricks are so chubby is because fast food is ridiculously cheap. I think it cost more money to buy a bag of carrots than it does to buy a 6 pack of 2 liter coke. PLUS Mcdonalds is ridiculously cheap.
2nd our healthcare system allows it and pushes for it. I know this is my brain working overtime but I feel that the health care system in the USA is so corrupt and they hope people get fat because that means more money for them (these are only my thoughts). Also the USA is so keen and accepting on the topic of getting surgery or taking a pill to lose weight. Hey lets get a tummy tuck or hey lets take this magical pill that makes me poop my brains out to lose 20lbs. In comparison to Germany, the doctor will look at you and say…You are fat go for a walk and eat an apple.
3rd. WE DO NOT WALK. End of that point
4th every freaking food is fried, when I was 10 I tried my first fried oreo -_- when I worked at a restaurant, I made the cook fry my cheesecake. WE HAVE FRIED GREEN BEANS. OH MY….FRIED BROCCOLI… WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? I mean come on.
5th our portions are out of control, I seriously could not finish my food in America, I had to take a lot of food home. My stomach was not used to such big portions. The cup sizes in America are ridiculous, a small is the equivalent to a German medium and sometimes a German large. I used to be able to eat 2 pieces of cheesecake from the cheesecake factory in one sitting, on my first day back in the states I could only eat 1/4 of a slice.
I have come to the conclusion that this is a problem. I don’t understand why there isn’t a bigger push for pursuing healthier lifestyles? Could someone please tell me? I am so happy that Germany has opened my eyes to the wasteful, gluttonous behavior of us Americans. I hope to start changing minds one muffin at a time. Until then I will go eat a piece of Milka (just kidding) and think about my lifestyle changes 😉 Goodnight you guys and I love yall.
