Not that I needed it, but I lost like 2 pounds since I stopped drinking pop and basically switched to water/milk/juice. My best friend lost like 5. We both run quite a bit too. Sure, it might not be because of the pop, but it seemed weird how it happened after we got rid of it. It's crazy how just eliminating the sugar and garbage in pop can help you out. ;-D


Yeah, my cousin said that she lost about ten pounds after quitting drinkin' pop.

I should probably quit... but eh, I dig pop with my lunch, dammit.

This wouldn't have mattered to me, though. My buddies and me always left campus during lunch anyway back in HS.

Indeed.

And apples don't fall far from the trees.

/Although those fatties wouldn't eat the apple anyhow. Fruit :-P



LOL.

There are some kids in my neighborhood that im sure have never seen an apple that wasnt dripping in caramel, and your right the parents are slobs too.

So im ignorant for drinking water?? You just proved my point.
You think the kids now are in great shape??!!! Kids now dont do anything they dont have to outside. Its all about video games and computers.

Congratz man! I almost got three under my belt! F junior year! I hate it...As for pop in the school doesn't effect me, I got to a private school! ;-D


thanks, i hate high school and am glad that tomorrow (i guess at this point it is today) is my last day of high school classes, ever. It's not that high school wasn't fun, its just that there are too many restrictions and not enough independence. So I'm happy that in 3 1/2 months I'll be off to college ;-D

actually, you're ignorant because you never had soda as a kid and so you didn't get hooked on it. Tiki is lamenting the fact that he ever got hooked on pop in the first place. It's not a perfect usage of the word ignorant, so I'm sure you just "misunderestimated" him. If anything, you're ignorant for not understanding what the phrase "ignorance is bliss" means.
This thread could get ugly pretty quickly. I think I'm at the age where I still remember hating teachers and parents and their "rules", but also at the age where I understand the reasoning behind those rules. MSB and Aww can rag on kids all they want and I'm not gonna stop them, but it seems a bit juvenile to cast such sweeping generalizations. There's such a thing as ageism: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ageism
Now you know... And Knowledge is Power! ;-D

Just my personal input from reading most of the posts on this thread.

Are kids these days lazy and out of shape? Probably a bit more than recent generations.
Will eliminating soda from schools solve the problem? Not a chance.

This whole laziness is a mindset. Kids arent fat because they have access to soda. They're fat because they don't know how to manage their health. They don't have the instinct to counteract their splurging. If they eat/drink too much sugar, carbohydrates, they don't make it a priority to burn at least some of that energy. Some kids do, but not enough. Getting rid of sodas in school will not change these bad habits though.

Its much like the other things we prohibit with kids. If they really want something they're told they can't have, they'll find a way to get it. Much better to teach them how to act like a responsible adult so that they dont overuse well just about anything from sweets and soda to alcohol.

This just seems like another quick fix that looks good on paper, will make the parents cheer, and support the !@#$'s who initiated it, and in the end resolve absolutely nothing.

To be fair, I think soda is just like anything else. Anything used excessively isn't good for you.
