Why the French aren’t fat

burger.jpgThis is kind of an interesting topic…Europeans are, on the whole, way less obese than Americans (nearly 2/3 of Americans are considered overweight or obese). It’s interesting to read about how a more relaxed lifestyle impacts health in this way and it just makes me like the idea of the European lifestyle that much more. Both theBBC and The Independent have interesting comments to make here. Not to mention I get the lecture on obesity from “the man” almost daily and all our vending machines are covered with sheets of paper outlining obesity trends…so yeah, it’s on my mind.
