I wouldn't consider it "privilege", but it's definitely an issue that a lot of middle class folks ignore.
Food deserts are a big problem in many cities and negatively affect the nutrition and weight of people who don't have the means to walk, drive, or find public transportation to one of the suburban sprawl strip malls where the decent grocery stores are.
I can't swing a stick in my area without hitting a cheap as butter fish and chicken frying joint but trying to find good quality and affordable produce (for example) is next to impossible. I'm fortunate I can drive to get it. Others are not so lucky.
This is a very interesting video, i believe i've shared it once on here already, but it doesn't hurt for others to see it. It talks of how Americans got fat and when it started, the government choices that threw regulation out, corn syrup phenomenon etc etc
It's super interesting and i think whoever is into this debate (US, obesity) won't be able to stop watching once she/he gets started.
YEs they are. How do you not know that? It’s expensive being big.
lol this reminds me of a dentist episode i had. Dentistry is covered by healthcare somewhat, in any case my procedure was. Wisdom tooth on the left side was going out.

I don't think so.
Nowadays - and not just in the US - junk food is cheaper. So being overweight isn't a marker of wealth as it was in the olden-whatever-days.
Like Rabbit said. It's much easier to have access to junk than it is to find AND afford healthy foods.
However, i wouldn't equate average health and bodyweight as privilege. Anyone, regardless of income, can learn discernment and moderation in eating. And one does not need a gym membership to be fit. To believe one does, is just stoopid.
This will be the thread where I ask the questions and post the upcoming weeks schedule
