Nobody welcomes an obese body. Most want help to slim down to their ideal weight.
I don't like any of this type of food and have never eaten it. Well, when I say never, I lie. At the age of sixteen, I drank a cola product offered by my father during their evening social drinking time. I drank it for over a year and I welcomed the taste and pleasant fizz. I guess the dreaded substance coke was included at the time—the fifties. Later, I developed tooth decay. I've seen a video of a slowly dissolving tooth dangled in the liquid at the end of a piece of string. Not good. I can't remember why I stopped drinking the stuff, but I assume it happened because I left my father's house to return to my mother. A major factor was a lack of funds.
And there we go full cycle. Disposable income contributes to obesity. I may have an expanding stomach but at least I'm healthy.
