That's so gross. I couldn't actually watch it.

Excessive sitting bad for health

@Colin - I think there are a lot of times when our brain "seeks out fat," as per that article.

After I had my son, and he refused to sleep for two and a half years, I would come downstairs in the morning and just hoover up the unhealthiest food I could find. Porridge or fruit had no appeal at all, I wanted fat, sugar and salt, I didn't care.

We are definitely programmed to feed ourselves in stressful times, which is one of the reasons it can be so hard to lose weight.

As soon as my boy started sleeping through most nights, I found it much easier to keep my resolve and get the weight off. What a difficult time that was.

Its a good topic kk..

I'm not sure about what most people think, but I do know some people who just choose to use their limited free time for things other than sports or physical exercise...   its not so much a dislike for sports, just a time management thing...  and the health benefits of sports aren't totally ignored, its just not a priority compared to other interests in their lives..

People just do what they want or not, they like eating a lot so they do, they like smoking so they smoke, they like drinking so they drink, they don't like taking exercise so they don't. Since no-one is forcing them to adopt a healthier way of living the default position is that whatever they do must be ok. Surely if what they did was so wrong, the government would have stopped them.
