I'm always surprised Italy comes so low as I always have an image (yeah from telly probably) of rather large ladies (just like in Greece) cooking and eating a lot of pasta. Mind you the last time I was in Greece in 2000 I was amazed at how much women in general had slimmed down from when I first visited in the late 1970s.

Strange how Ireland is thirteenth - a vast proportion of people are overweight. Maybe they're not classed as 'obese'. But the ratio of fat to thin is, ermmm, gross.

I think it's significant that, in the veggie/vegan group here in this county, I've made around forty to fifty new acquaintances and only two are in any way overweight, one of them only marginally so.

I also read fart chart :iconbiggrin:

Anyway, interesting about the people in Japan, I don't use sugar either. I firmly belive that all sugar should be totally fermented out!

Mind you, lots of yeasts farting alot in that process :oops:

Coincidentally, a work colleague said to me about two weeks ago, "What kind of sugar do you buy? I'm trying to get something a bit healthier." I was struggling to remember the last time we bought sugar. We have some raw organic agave syrup, some organic molasses and some - ah yes, a small bag of organic rapadura, I recall seeing it in the cupboard. I'm not really sure why we have them, tbh but at least they keep for donkeys.

It's, I dunno, a little bit eye-opening seeing people buy multiple big bags of white sugar on a regular basis. People are odd, don't you think?

I think I read - on here! - that the Japanese don't use much sugar and aren't very fat but use a lot of salt and suffer ill affect from that.

I don't really know if that's true though!!

Yes, I'm odd too - I was there with my 2kg bag of white sugar the other day, making marmalade. (And it's very nice).

I apologise, I really do :oops: - it slipped my mind about the plum jam I made in September. That was the last time I bought sugar: organic, a kind of pale brown granulated that a local shop buys in bulk.

I don't really 'do' cakes though - give me savoury just about any time (we've lots of the jam left...)

I wonder if they really eat like that? :dontknow:

By the way, I've read the title of this as Fart Chart more than once this morning :roll:
