Tips For Eating Like An Animal

OK, we’ve established that animals eat better than we do. So here are some tips to help you eat like an animal:

4. Don’t eat out so often – Many Americans eat out far more than they eat a home cooked meal. Unfortunately, restaurants fill their food with way more fat and salt than you’d use at home, to make it taste better and to get you to come back often. But you wouldn’t let your dog eat there.

3. Don’t eat anything from a gas station – If snacks and sandwiches can sit around for months, they probably have more chemicals and additives than we can absorb. And you certainly wouldn’t buy food for your cat from a gas station snack rack.

2. No soda pop. Nada. – Both sugar free and regular soft drinks are bad for your teeth and for your body. They, and most sweetened drinks, are just bad for you all the way around. Besides, you only let your pet drink water anyway!

1. Eat a colorful plate – The first time I went in for a colonoscopy, the nurse gave me a big ole lecture about my diet. She said she could tell that I eat too much dairy, meat, sugar and white flour. Instead, she wanted me to mostly eat vegetables, fruits and whole grains, and to go sparingly on the others. It sounded complicated at the time.

But of course, not once I started eating like an animal.

Maybe the animal handler and zoo keepers were eating hotdogs instead of standing by with a stun gun. If they had been on the job, they could have shot stun gun at the gorilla and jumped in to the mote to pull the child out. I have viewed the video and not one not, one zoo staff member was on duty or near by. WTF???? You need to retrain your staff. Someone higher up needs to redress this issue. AWFUL AWFUL SAD SCARED ZOO STAFF CAUSED THIS NEEDLESS KILLING TO OCCUR. SHAME SHAME ON YOU–i AM A RETIED SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR AGE 68–STILL SICK OVER YOUR UNTRAINED LAZY ZOO STAFF. WHAT YIU DID WAS HORRIBLE.
