The U.S. central government may really be encouraging Americans to be weighty, fat or even overweight. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refers an adult diet of 2,000 – 2,500 calories daily, with 30% resulting from fat. That means, giving to the FDA website:
You pick more than 65 grams of fatness in a day if you eat 2,000 calories.
You pick more than 80 grams of fatness in a day if you eat 2,500 calories.
Teenagers pick more than 100 grams of fatness in a day if you eat 3,000 calories.
Thus, giving to the federal government, the normal person can pick between 65 and 80 grams of fat per day or, if you are a teenager, 100.
Now, if you visit the McDonalds.com website you will see that one Big Mac holds a total of 33 grams of fat. And 2 Big Macs would hold 66 grams of fat, a suitable amount of daily fat.
That’s why; the U.S. government is telling its people (depending on their caloric eating) that it’s perfectly OK to have the equal of 2 Big Macs or more every day. I don’t know about you but if I worried like that I’d gain weight. I’d be watching in the mirror saying “Hello Chubby!” And then I’d have to energy myself to run like 50 miles a day just to reduce the extra weight and keep it off.
Based on the FDA strategies the government must need us all to be fat. And, seeing the already overweight population and the epidemic of fatness in America, regarding fat happy in our diet it looks like the politicians and health officers in Washington are out to lunch. Maybe at McDonald’s.
