Not only are Americans overweight but their dogs as well.
Poor unhealthy diets and lack of proper exercise is to blame for all this.
lol
With dogs, it isn't just what the owners feed them. They often get out of the house, go through garbage, and get fed by neighbors. Then the owners don't know what they have eaten will feed them more. Sometimes the constant bowl of food left out is the problem. It is sometimes good to take the food bowl away and just leave the water. Then put it back at the next meal time.

For humans, there are several additional issues. First off, Nutrasweet and MSG are contributors to obesity. They jam up the metabolism. One man switched to mostly vegetables and the doctor liked the changes, but he still couldn't lose any weight, even with the light exercise he added. He was ready to blame his genes when the doctor asked him to name everything. On the list was Chinese food, which overall is healthy except for the added MSG, and diet sodas containing aspartame. The doctor told him to request no MSG or to try a restaurant that didn't add it, and to cut the diet sodas. He did and he started losing weight.

Other people have too much weight because of a vitamin deficiency. You need plenty of vitamin D and B-complex. One symptom of excessive vitamin D is a loss of appetite. A lack of vitamin D is common is darker people of African descent living in the US or Canada. So they may need to take vitamin D, some as much as 7000 IU a day.

Another problem pertains to low-income people. People in the UK and elsewhere assume Americans are fat because they are over-privileged, wealthy, and lazy. Often, it is the opposite. Foods containing lots of sugar and starch are *cheaper* than other foods, and easier to prepare. Look at the typical diet in the housing projects: sandwiches (carbs), fried foods (grease), macaroni and cheese (carbs), Koolaid (sugar), soft drinks (sugar), food seasonings (MSG), and pastries (sugar and starch). Plus if you have certain genetics and you don't eat much for a while, then when you do eat, you gain a lot. So a formerly starving person will rapidly gain weight, and if you don't have much money, you go for the cheaper and unhealthier foods.

Then take in mind the psychological damage a "food nazi" mother can cause. Their children will either abandon the healthy habits in spite, or they will raise their own children in an unhealthy manner. So a child forced to drink a lot of milk, even when the milk has gotten warm might never drink it again once they leave home and shed all the excessive rules their parents taught. Or, lacking maturity, they may assume their mother didn't give them what they want out of a lack of love, and they vow to "love" their own kids enough to let them eat what they want. Then then end up with a 3 or 4-year-old who is 100 pounds. In that case, they need to come to terms forgive their parents, and not project what they once wanted onto their own children.

Yep, heroines on heroin, but they are so skinny, they could fit through a crack. If they keep it up, they might meth up and end up in a joint.

AMD? Is that Advanced Micro Devices? Right now, I am more of a Sandy Bridge fan. Six Intel hyperthreading cores will outperform 8 AMD cores.
