Re: The main reason why The Netherlands has 5 times less obese people than the U.S.
Over 40% of the Dutch population is too fat

Tuesday 03 July 2012

Around 6.5 million Dutch people are overweight, according to figures released on Tuesday by the central statistics office CBS.

This is more than 40% of the population. The figure includes 1.5 million who are classified as obese, says the CBS.

Thirty years ago, just over a quarter of Dutch adults were too fat. Now twice as many people over the age of 20 are overweight or obese.

For children the number has also grown. Around 11% are overweight or obese, compared with 4% in the early 1980s, says the CBS.

In the U.S. people have the attitude that bicycles are for children. That is a major part of the problem. Look at the picture that was on the bottom of this site the other day. Obama on a bike, while Putin is on a horse without a shirt on. Implying Obama is "gay" for riding a bike. That's the mentality.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12672712


Um, wouldn't that be your mentality or at least the way you perceived the photo?

Many people ride bikes here in the States; California, Oregon, Massachusetts, NEW YORK, Texas (mainly Austin), CHICAGO, the list goes on, and on.

Fuck off.

It's the distance plus infrastructure that makes a bicycle a worthy transportation device, plus, it costs over 2000 dollars to get your drivers license in the Netherlands + one month or more of driving lessons - while in the US it's a one day 50$ deal(last time I was there it was 25$).

Pure and simple.

Dutch culture is socially retarded and backward with racist national holidays such as Sinterklaas, plus the people are insanely docile compared to Americans.

Yes, we here in Holland cycle most everyday, contrary to Americans who are lazy and drive to the Hamburgerstand with their fat bellies behind the wheel.

Maybe they should all pay a visit to this country and cycle on the dikes along the windmills, tulips and coffeeshops.

That would also save you money with these high gasprices.

So get off your ass, grab your bike (if you have any) and follow the example of the Dutch.

We are the most healthiest people in Europe.

I'm sorry for this one guys... I'm afraid it's another 'True Dutch'.

At the one I told to shut up: you're right, I didn't need to shut you up and I did misunderstood your post. But 'true dutch' sounds a lot like something Hitler could have said. You mean: with its origin from Holland, I now get it. However, I do think that also original dutch people are obese. Statistics always lie, as they are made to prove someone's point, also correct. But don't just believe your own eyes as your ego is able to make you see an illusion.

But again; I'm sorry for jumping the conclusion on you, you are not like the quoted prick above.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12672712


Or the fact that the U.S. is how many times larger than The Netherlands? How many of us have to drive 15-45 miles to get to our jobs everyday? Not to mention climate.... In the winter months in various parts of the country, riding a bike is not possible.

Riding a bicycle to get around from A to B for a large majority of Americans is simply not feasible when you consider how spread out things are and the distances involved.

If I lived in a smaller urban area or a small city, I could definitely consider it. I have excellent metabolism so weight has never been an issue but I would consider biking as a good means of transportation, just as long as I don't get a DUI!
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC


This^^

I live just outside small town--"in the county" as we put it here.

Everything here is spread out, though.
It's 10 miles to my job, for instance.

I would never in a million years let my kids ride bikes to school because a) They would have to leave way too early because of the distance and b) after leaving the house, it's 1 mile on a narrow, curvy road to the main road which is a 4-lane highway with a 55 mph speed limit.

I would love to live where riding a bike most of the time makes sense, but this is not the place.

It's just the food. Americans eat way more fastfood then European people. And the menu's are way bigger also, a big order of frensh fries here in NL is the same as a small in US. Burgers a much bigger etc. Fastfood is also much cheaper. I mean, really, a McChicken for 1 dollar [link to www.mcdonalds.com] . We pay EUR 3,50.

Furthermore, when we buy a Coke overhere, you can't refill it for free, in USA this is normal.

You don't get it, do you ?

We're not talking about a few exceptional people, but about big groups of people of a certain country.

The video of the 80+ ladies I posted shows how tenthousands of 80+ women in the Netherlands get free care and are in good shape because they ALL kept themselves active during their live, compared to a FEW exceptions you from your country that you present.

And yes, there's a huge stigma about obese Americans, and rightful so... just look at some live webcam and anyone can see it's not fiction.

So, stop pushing "suck this" nonsense, go out to your mall or your oh so popular drive through and use your eyes.

It's true.
