The Michelle My Butt health care lunch programs have satisfied nothing other than the libs need to spend money America does not have. The Chicago districts threw away most of what they put on their trays, those who were not sneaking out to buy lunch. Now we find how horrifying this low calorie program can be for people in a JS article.
“By 7 a.m. Monday, senior Nick Blohm already had burned about 250 calories in the Mukwonago High School weight room.
He grabbed a bagel and a Gatorade afterward; if he eats before lifting, he gets sick.
That was followed by eight periods in the classroom, and then three hours of football practice. By the time he headed home, he had burned upward of 3,000 calories – his coach thinks the number is even higher.
But the calorie cap for his school lunch? 850 calories.”
We are all different in terms of metabolic rates, how we are affected by cholesterol, whatever, but the libs are intent upon combining everyone into one category. The article refers to athletes, I played football in high school and college back in the seventies, how anyone could exist on an 850 calorie lunch is incomprehensible. Consider how much larger the players are today. We had our own training tables with menus designed to push the calories, vitamins, salt, milk… Federal statutes prohibiting a 250 pound lineman from consuming what is necessary is outright dangerous.
