First Lady Michelle Obama will announce today the headway she and the Obama dietocracy have made in strong arming restaurants to reduce portion sizes as part of her “Let’s Move’ campaign against obesity.
“The Childhood Obesity Task Force Report”–commissioned as part of Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” project, “specifically calls on restaurants to, “consider their portion sizes, improve children’s menus, and make healthy options the default choice whenever possible.”
The “or else” is implied.
I always find it a bit ironic the interest the Obamas take in regulating stomachs while completely ignoring wombs. So much for personal choice, huh? In fact, the womb seems to be the one place on earth immune from Nanny State overreach.
But as someone who doesn’t think it’s the government’s business what I throw down my gullet I’ve come up with a few handy catchphrases to ward off the dietocracy:
Keep your administration out of my abdomen!
Every burger, a wanted burger!
Get your statutes off my stomach!
No directions for my digestion!
My cheese fries, My choice!
Don’t like pie? Don’t have pie.
Get your bureaucracy out of my belly.
If you’ve got any catchphrases that could really help my movement please put them in the combox. It’s kind of a grassroots thing at this point. We meet at Sizzler. A few times a week.

We want hambuger eating to be safe, legal, and rare, as opposed to well-done which does it no justice.
I guess I'll go eat at a back alley burger joint.
Eating is safer then exercise.

A Big Mac isn't a Big Mac until you take it home, remove it from the to-go bag, and unwrap it. Saint Augustine said so.

What no f-bombs? come on folks, where's your nasty?
by the way, Michelle (no-skinny minnie herself) telling us to watch our diet is like overweight people me that I "should use" low-fat, sugar-free anything, which they do all the time. I'm 5'5" and 120 lbs. and 45 years old. Eyes of my fries, please!

The pizza hits my gut like a big pick-up truck, at'sa amore! Scotju (who's part Italian.)

Give pizza a chance.
You aren't obese unless you're overweight.
I'll teach my kids about the food pyramid, but I won't punish my kids with tofu.

It's just a blob of calories.
The calories are not calories until the "paper-work" is done.
Cheeseburgers should be a decision between a woman and her refrigerator.
We really don't know when the digestion of calories begins.
"Freedom of choice of ice cream flavors!"
"Ice Cream is my Constitutional right!"
"Cheeseburgers are perfectly legal."
"You can't legislate ice cream!"
"Don't foist your arugula off on me!"
"Who will decide on the menu ,you or the Nannie State?"
"Pro-burger, pro-cheese, pro-mustard."
"You anti-fat fanatics do not represent the mainstream."
"Pro-ice cream is in the majority."
"Anti-fat fanatics hate their own digestive tract."
"You're all anti-woman. All you care about is the waistline."
"You're inconsistent because you're for the lobster with butter."
"You people are all jawbreakers."
"Anti-fat people are violent fanatics."
"You anti-fat people are single-issue fanatics."
"Men have no right to speak out against belly fat."

"While I personally agree with the First Lady that Americans should watch their diet, I do not think I have a right to impose my opinion on anyone." (With gratitude to former Governor Cuomo for his important philosophical template)

The right to privacy guarantees that if I choose to eat a twinkie (or 12), its nobody's business but my own, and possibly my doctors.
