    This has inspired me - watching food matters now.

    I think the issue is that people either are too lazy to cook or too time poor. It is easier to grab something fast on your lunch break and scoff it down then make a salad that takes longer to consume then to eat. Rising foods costs make this worse....in the 50s instead of the cheap pizza tuesday they would make lambs fry with bacon and serve with silverbeet and mash. Now i doubt anyone except the elderly still cook it. I got smoked cod yesterday for $2.50 a kilo. I am going to make a pie with mash topping for tomorrow nights dinner. In comparison, chicked breasts were 13 a kilo and a roast chook at woolies was $11. Or i could grab homebrand pies for $4 for 6.

    We have been spoilt for too long and turn our noses up at blood sausage or presswurst in a farmers lunch in favour of a footlong subway. Also larger portions of food.

    Default Australia - a mismatch between reputation and reality

    Why do people who are overweight not change their eating and exercise habits?

    A blunt question but a genuine one.

    Do they not care enough about their health to change?
    Do they not care enough about the example they are setting for their children to change?
    Do they not understand what impact their weight has on their health and health of their children?

    Because it's very hard to break a habit and it takes a long time to lose weight.

    It's not easily done

    Sugar and fat are highly addictive too.

    Yep. I do disagree with bmi because of that due to my own personal experience. I've posted this photo before on here during these kinds of discussions...

    This is a picture of my dad walking me down the aisle on my wedding day and according to my bmi which was 30.7 on this day, I was obese. Maybe I am in denial about it and should accept that in this photo, I am obese.

    Are blood sausages and Presswurst considered healthy lunch options? I'm not convinced. Honestly, I haven't looked in to it, the idea of eating either of those foods is horrifying to me and I'd rather starve, but I'm not convinced they are healthy foods either....are they?

    Maybe it needs to be treated like an addiction? Like the way we treat smoking?

    We could ban advertising of soft drink and sell it in plain packaging (as a start).

    Obesity is defined as being 20% or more above a normal weight. I'm not even going to try and guess what your normal weight should be, because I don't know what your height is...but say 55kg is your normal, you only need to weigh 66kg to be obese. I think we have a skewed view as to what obese is, and where we visually look at someone who we would be willing to say is obese, we're probably more looking at a morbidly obese person.
    And by no means am I wanting to offend. You don't look obese in this photo, I'm just using your photo as an example of the skewed views we have on weight as a society.

    They are just meat. Blood sausage has little to no fat. A plowmans lunch is healthy yes. Presswurst is a pigs head boiled and the geletin holds the bits together. The meat and getatin is pushed into a meat press and usually has no additives but does have fat just like any meat.

    Well there you go...I would have been skipping meals left, right and centre though because there's no way I could bring myself to eat a boiled pigs head.
