If the world were different...

I was talking to a friend of mine today and had this random thought.  As we talked about it for a moment I decided that I wanted to post about it.

So I wonder, why is it that if you want to be healthy you have to pay so much money?  I walk through a grocery store and everything that is supposed to be healthy for you or organic is so dang expensive.  Yet, when I walk through the junk food section and such it is much cheaper.  I don't understand this at all.  In fact, it seems quite ironic to me.  I mean, there are so many warnings and such that tell you the effects of not being healthy.  Doctors are always talking about what you should and shouldn't do to be healthy.  Yet, they all charge a ton of money for it.  But, if I want to be unhealthy it is basically free.  In fact, it can be completely free.  It is unhealthy to sit and do nothing and if I want to I can do that without a problem.  But hey, think about all the money you are saving by being unhealthy.  Maybe I should be unhealthy for a time and then use all the extra money to buy something to make me healthy again.

But then I started thinking, well if the world were the other way around, or backwards from what it is now... would I then be obese?  So, I started to wonder what I would look like if I were obese.  My friend suggested a site (thank you Krista!) and I went and put my face on an obese kid.  Therefore, if I were obese, this is what I would look like.

All in all, I have come to the conclusion that I will live with the way the world is.  After seeing this image I don't think I could live with myself looking like this.  I think I will stick to the health and spend the extra money.  But... it is still ironic if you ask me.

I don't know why but you look like Uncle Keith in that picture. Loved the website and used it with my family. As for expensive healthy food... well for one, that explains why poorer people tend to be more obese nowadays. However, beans and rice are cheap and they are healthy. Forget the organic, that's too much work.
