Extra Large Sizes

Obesity rates have been consistently growing in this country.


This is concerning for all sorts of health effects (including unfortunately Cancer). 


Many of us struggle with our weight and it is not easy to fight it especially given the processed foods and carbs all around us. 


The picture as of 2015 is that almost 40% of Americans are categorized as obese (versus a below average of 18% in Israel)  


In this context, this store sign in Israel for big and tall clothing was off the charts. 


Talking about extra large sizes for people…


Check out how many “Xs” as in XL this store is advertising? 


A full 11 Xs (after that I lost count)!


Hey, that is a large size for anyone. 


What does a size 11 XL look like.


Now that’s something that I don’t have a good picture of.  😉

A New Type Of Chocolate Chips

chips

Ok, dieting is hard enough with all highly processed food out there these days. 


And everything is carbs, carbs, and more carbs…it’s literally poison for the body. 


But when you go into the store and see Lays chocolate covered potato chips…this just brings you to the verge of sin. 


The top are milk chocolate covered potato chips, and the bottom ones are dark chocolate covered ones. 


Choose your poison?


This is definitely a new type of chocolate chips…Hershey’s eat you heart out. 


I told my wife pleadingly, “Can’t I just taste one?” 😉
