Time for some facts:

* 25% of American men and 45% of American women are on a diet on any given day (Smolak, 1996).
* Americans spend over $40 billion on dieting and diet-related products each year (Smolak, 1996).
* The average American woman is 5'4" tall and weighs 140 pounds. The average American model is 5'11" tall and weighs 117 pounds. Most fashion models are thinner than 98% of American women (Smolak, 1996).

Add these three thoroughly researched facts together and what do you get? One fucked up and sick society. I couldn't get the facts on Europe, but I imagine it's not much different over here. What the hell are we doing to ourselves people?

More on Mickey tomorrow.

p.s. I happen to like a little meat on my women.
