Food education not in your original post.
Peer group not in your original post.
So much here...not in your original post. Just going to through enough shit against the wall hoping some sticks?
Basically you made all the usual apologetics, and now that it's clear they are not the answer, you are going to dodge and weave, move the goal posts, etc.
Just as predicted by me.
Well, maybe we could both take that advice. I wasn't trying to argue with you, or dismiss your claims -- I do agree that more time, for whatever reason, should make it easier to eat 'healthy', however you define it. I agree there are better options than junk food at the regular supermarket, and that should make it easier to lose weight, no matter your circumstance, if that's your goal.
I said there are are a number of factors that make healthy eating more difficult for everyone -- including laziness.
Speaking generally, I do think there are a lot of mechanisms in place that make eating healthy less convenient, but not impossible. I just pointed out a few of them. Otherwise, everyone would fit the current beauty standards, be healthy, and look amazing naked.
But no, I don't think one tautological graph showing that people who work fewer hours earn less money paints a complete picture. That would be lazy thinking. There would be so many other factors at play -- are these people riding the bus to the grocery store, but walking across the street to Taco Bell? Are there healthier stores and restaurants in their area, or is that mostly the province of the rich? What kind of food education have they had? What's their peer group like? Are they taking care of kids, or are they kids themselves?
What do I mean by *these people*?
