I am one of those overweight people that you may have seen in Wal Mart or Food Lion but I resent the fact that when you see me you think it is because of what I eat. I have several health problems which make it hard for me to get up and down, days on end I can barely walk fast enough to get to the bathroom without having an accident before I get there. I am a diabetic so I carefully watch not only what I eat but when I eat it. I love salads, raw veggies and fruit. Rarely do I eat anything sweet. Do not fry food, do not eat a lot of white bread, rice, potatoes, etc. I try to walk when I am able but my breathing stops me if my joints do not. So do not judge all overweight people by the same criteria.
