New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg is counting your calories again. This time he’s taking aim at jumbo-sized sugary sodas. Delis, restaurants, sport arenas, and any other place covered by the Health Department will no longer be able to sell oversized sodas.
About 60% of New Yorkers, more than 3 million people, are overweight. The Mayor is banking that the big-sized ban will help this problem and others associated with obesity like diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.
But, the Mayor’s big-size ban has a few holes in it. Not everybody wants the government watching their weight. What happened to making our own choices, healthy or not. And the other hole, it happens to be National Donut Day and the Mayor is celebrating it.
Mayor Bloomberg was on the Today Show this morning when Matt Lauer asked him about this sugar snafu. The Mayor explained that everything in moderation is ok, including donuts and soda.
So, go celebrate National Donut Day. It honors the women who delivered donuts to soldiers during World War I. Forget the super-sized soda and get milk instead. It goes better, and this way you can have your cake and eat it too.
Before you take a bite, here’s one more thing. Check out the hole in the center, it is an “economic indicator.” The smaller the donut hole, the better the economy because more dough is being used. Sweet stuff☺
