Do you feel like you live in a less-oppressed world now?

You're grasping at straws and now entering a conversation with people who know much more than you do. Tread softly.

Iron horse, what is your level of knowledge of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes?

I didn't realize that women were aspiring to look like SI models or someone that A Fraud would date. Or that Michelle Obama was or should be. That eating ribs once or however many times makes her a hypocrite.



Rush Limbaugh called Michelle Obama a hypocrite on his Monday show, saying that, while the First Lady advocates healthy eating, she "doesn't look like [she] follows her own...dietary advice" and would never be put on the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue.

Limbaugh was reacting to a report from Colorado which mentioned that Obama ate ribs at a restaurant during her skiing holiday there this past weekend. He said this was evidence of Obama's hypocrisy around food.

Obama's campaign to curb obesity and promote healthy eating has come under frequent attack by many conservatives, who have cast it as an example of big government overreach. Last week, a controversial cartoon depicted Obama as overweight and binging on hamburgers even as she talked about eating healthy foods.

"If we're supposed to go out and eat nothing, if we're supposed to eat roots and berries and tree bark, show us how," Limbaugh said. He continued:

"The problem is, and dare I say this, it doesn't look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice. And then we hear that she's out eating ribs at 1,500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat per serving...I'm trying to say that our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you."

Because Rush Limbaugh, of all people, should be commenting on somebody else's weight.

and because eating ribs one time (was there even any confirmation - not like there needs to be - that she actually ate them all?) means she's a horrible person and knows nothing about eating healthy. most doctors and such who talk about eating right never tell you to not ever eat anything unhealthy, but that it's all in moderation. that might've been the first time in five years she ate ribs for all we know. and who cares? she looks fit, she obviously works out to make up for the occasional splurge.

She has said that she gets up at 4 AM to work out. No overweight woman would have arms like hers at her age. So she's not a stick figure-that makes her an overweight hypocrite?

exactly, you can tell she's in shape. she probably said while eating the ribs that she knew it meant an extra couple hours on a treadmill but it was worth it. the most hilarious part is the people who are all "omg the government can't tell me what i can and can't eat!" are the ones telling HER what she can and can't eat.

I demand video evidence that she was on a treadmill for an extra couple of hours! Or I want the First Lady impeached. Can't you impeach a First Lady?

This cracked me up for some reason. Ta-Nehisi Coates over at The Atlantic had a blogpost today responding to NYT food columnist Mark Bittman's recent "How to Make Oatmeal...Wrong" (which bemoans the fact that "McDonald’s [oatmeal] contains more sugar than a Snickers bar and only 10 fewer calories than a McDonald’s cheeseburger or Egg McMuffin"). Coates writes:
Quote:
I often hear this complaint from people who cook directed at people who don't. The notion basically holds that cooking isn't as inconvenient as people make it out to be. I don't know. I make my oatmeal in a pot at home--there's something blasphemous about microwaving it--but I don't own a dishwasher, and cleaning up actually is work. Moreover, I'm assuming people standing in that McDonald's line can text, tweet, e-mail or whatever while they wait.

The bigger thing here is understanding why people go to McDonald's in the first place. I strongly suspect that the entire experience is comforting. In a day of constant work, pushes and pulls, you have this one clean place, which is the same everywhere, dispensing joyful shots of sugar and salt. That's just me thinking about how I've eaten in the past--and also how I eat when my brain is crowded with everything besides what I'm eating.

I think what Bittman urges in his writing is consciousness. He wants people to think hard about what they're eating. I strongly suspect that people go to McDonald's for the exact opposite reason--to get unconscious. Understanding why that it is, goes beyond our food. It's about how we live.

i truly don't get it. all they could talk about after the 2009 SOTU was how "inappropriate" she was because she was showing her buff arms?





she looks pretty slim to me.

but then, she was eating ribs.

you know, ribs.

that's why they get so big.

Michelle Obama is the kind of strong, yet sexy African-American woman/mother/goddess I could really get... behind
