Well, watching people waddle around, I can't help but think higher food prices could be a good thing.

One my local pizzerias has had a sign up for a couple years saying they had to increase the prices. I think they mentioned the Mozzarella prices as being the main reason...

Quoth:'Well, watching people waddle around, I can't help but think higher food prices could be a good thing.'

I wonder if it wouldn't actually be harmful though. Most of the 'cheap' food available at the supermarket etc. is actually less nutritious for you anyway. Which means the people on the tightest food budgets will buy more crap (not that they weren't already).

That's exactly how I feel. Its not as easy/cheap to eat healthily in this country. I mean I'd save tons of money if I could live on McDonalds, but I can't. I used to work with German interns and they would all gain weight when they came to work here. They were very surprised by the difficulty in finding affordable, healthy food...

My only carbs are in the form of HB.

...and the occasional baked potato...

...and some periodic jalepeno chips...

...and every now and again...some red hot candies...

...then there's the Triscuits...
