    Did you know McDonalds is bad for you? Though, seriously, it is getting old.

    That article had several obvious "Did you use spell check?" type things and a few obvious contradictions.

    Therefore, I call shenanigans.

    I lost my licence for a year a while back, and I actually found myself gaining weight riding a bike. The reason being, with a car I could go grocery shopping and get healthy foods to make at home. When you don't have a car, groceries are kind of hard to manage. I found myself just riding to the nearby food court, eating fast food all the time. Also, going to the gym (as odd as it sounds) is so much easier to do when you have a car. When you have to bike there, workout, then bike back...it sucks. I wasn't going near as much as I should have been.

    Try it. Try not driving for a year, and see how healthy it is for you. I posted my comment before I read the article, and it pretty much said the same thing I did. You go to the closer, faster places, and order in more...

    Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

    First, from September 2003 until May 2008 I was at uni in a little tiny town in the middle of no where. The town was small enough that I could walk everywhere.

    Over the 2008/2009 winter I was at home but live near a train station so I walked everywhere. Although I didn't like to go outside much because it was f***ing cold and I was working full time (BTW, I walked to work as well since it was only about 15 minutes away).

    Now I'm in Australia living in my own apartment. The grocery store and such is only about 5km away so I bike there and back. I also bike everywhere here or, if something is too far away or late at night I take the bus.

    Check. Your move, good sir.

    Well, as with anything, it depends on the individual. There's no one that will actually say "if you don't own a car you will get fat," it just depends on how it affects you whether it be location, will power, health, metabolism, or any other multitude of factors. I can personally vouch for the validity of the corelation between the two.

    This is the truth.
    Not all bodies are the same.
    Not all people are in the same situation.

    The true is "Not owning a car CAN make some people fat."
    But like I said, these studies are way oversimplified.

    "Not owning a car, supermarket of further away, public transportation sucks, reasons preventing to walk to supermarket, lack of exercise and time, can make some people fat."

    No I didn't read the article, didn't have to.
