The northern region(atleast places ive visitted) uses a shtload of lard for tortillas. My aunt uses it like its fat free or something. But tortillas come out good. Also, every one drinks soda like water.

I can't stand the stuff that they fry in lard. It fuccks with my stomach and I'm not use to eating that kind of stuff. I eat pretty healthy.

USA is the fittest and fattest country. Unfortunately there is a balance of the two.

That's because they're working Mexicans, while their families in mexico are getting fat off of remittances.

Mexican Americans are slim because they don't have proper jobs to control their desire for food.

They eat more tortillas and use lard.

One thing that always surprises me is how well they eat. Mom is always saying how we need to send them money because they're struggling, yet they eat far bettter than we do here.

I walk into my kitchen and 8/10 times there's not much to eat. Most of my meals are shitty at home. But not those beaners, they eat like it's f*ckin Thanksgiving day every day even if they're poor.

:biggums:

What gives?

I wonder how Canada compares because it seems like a lot of younger Canadians have similar eating habits to Americans. It seems like the avg North American is overworked thus leading to lazier eating habits. I mean how much people actually have the time to cook a decent meal nowadays???
