Why are we fat? Well, we think this is normal. We go from one fat-fest holiday to the next. We start with New Year's Day...Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine's Day, fast-forward to Halloween (the candy starts in August*), then it's off to Thanksgiving - Christmas.
This adds up to a tremendous amount of days when candy and other junk foods are readily available and considered normal.
*Last August, upon entering my local CVS pharmacy, I wasn't sure if I entered a candy store or a drug store. BTW, on my "main street", there are three CVS pharmacies within 2 miles of one another. Ah, the disease care system at work.
