My name is David. I am 28 years old. I live in Riverside, CA with my lovely wife Kelly and 2 children Lucy (3 years old) and Chuck (1 year old).

I'm a pretty fit dude (about 15%-16% body fat %) but I have some cholesterol problems because of genetics. My ideal week is to lift weight for 30 minutes 4 times a week and do cardio for 60 minutes 5 times a week.

Food-wise, I try to stick to a calorie counting approach rather than a "don't eat this but eat that" kind of diet. This has worked for me in the past and I don't like limiting the types of foods I can eat because it makes me feel too much like I'm on a diet. I just want to stick with a moderate diet and indulge every now and then if I want to.

The fight to contain obesity: Maybe a step too far?
If taxpayer money is being used to fund a welfare program, taxpayers should be allowed to say what the food stamps can be used for. The "big bad government" is an ELECTED government. We choose who represents us so if you're not happy with the decisions they are making, vote for someone else. I'm tired of people blaming government for their problems because we are the ones who choose who will govern us. Take some personal responsibility.

Taxpayer funded welfare programs are a temporary solution to help you get back on your feet. While you are on a welfare program, you should not be worried about eating chips, candy, and soda.

It has been mentioned that pre-cooked chickens should be allowed on food stamps. The problem I see with that is that the pre-cooked chicken costs more money because the grocery store has to pay someone to cook it. Why should taxpayers pay for you to be lazy and not cook your own chicken?

It's time to take some personal responsiblity. If you're on a welfare program, you need to understand that you're being given something from your elected government to help you get through a rough time, not to pay for you to buy whatever you want. If soda is not a necessity, I won't pay for you to buy it; just as I won't pay for you to not cook your own chicken.

If you have Netflix, I highly recommend the documentary Forks Over Knives. It'll change your life.
