Anyone who has ever tried to shed excess pounds can tell you one hard and fast rule of weight loss. It's all about how many calories you consume, not where they come from.Words to live by, indeed. And this why, according to Meeks, it is just plain nonsensical to put a sales tax on sugared soft drinks. It isn't fat supression; it's fat oppression!
Unless you're the gubmint, says Meeks; it will just ease its belt out a notch if we put a tax on hard working 'Mericuns and their fructose of choice.
Because that's what it's all about, isn't it? Making sure all of us have our shot at type II diabetes.
