However, both of us also like chicken prepared a similar way. Depending on which and what way it is prepared, he eats twice as fast as me when it comes to chicken.

    Even with the same foods, often times, one person usually eats more and the other person usually eats less.
    yeah that's true, I never had much of an appetite growing up my mom would always fight with me to eat more.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Well put! This is what I meant, basically.

    I think this "You don't want to be FAT, do you?" > "Don't you want to be healthy and live longer?" mentality does more harm (body image issues and eating disorders, along with seeking "lose weight easily" diets) than good (promoting healthy and balanced eating).

    I don't know of any studies done about it, though, so take my thoughts with a grain of salt...

    @ Rail Tracer
    It was a sketched out idea. I was thinking those old retro posters would be more eye popping for kids to become strong. I'm not good at giving out details...

    Yes, you are right, Rosie the Riveter WOULD make the kids to think strong.

    It is just the message being sent here was completely different. So having a Rosie the Riveter like picture here might not fit appropriately.

    Do anti-smoking ads cause this much debate?

    Although too many Americans have become overly sensitive and want everything sugar-coated (hah), I don't think ads are going to be useful in dwindling obesity rates among children and adults. Children shouldn't be blamed, it's the adults who are at fault. The ones who make these synthetic packages of poison, the ones who buy and eat them in excess and the ones who don't want to claim responsibility for their actions. A poor diet is no excuse and I don't think someone who really cared about their child's health would forsake it for convenience.

    Now that's getting somewhere; I remember seeing an article about a school that used DDR during PE class and I thought it was brillant because they burn calories while having fun at the same time. It's often been shown that positive reinforcement helps in ensuring a certain response from someone (or in this case an animal) and I think that's the way to go when it comes to children.

    No, you're just an INTJ.

    Seeing overweight children is very upsetting to me.
    And I don't mean "it breaks my heart" kind of upsetting.
    More like "you nasty little pig, I hate you" kind of upsetting.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
