RightSizingAmerica© starts NOW

We need to RightSize America. Let's --together -- get America eating the RightSize all the time.

Not the euphemism for firing people. But a phrase for getting everyone and everything to the RightSize. That means getting people to the RightSize. That means getting food portions to the RightSize. That means getting our children to the RightSize. It means getting our priorities to the RightSize.

The first step is for everyone in America (really everyone in the World) to start figuring out what is the RightSize, and to communicate that when we find the RightSize.

Our first job is to find restaurants, fast-food shops, diners, lunch counters (are there any left?), cafeterias, pushcarts, fair booths...any (and every) place that sells or distributes food and drinks to serve the RightSize. And at the RightPrice.

I don't have a problem with the Triple Whopper or the Monster Thickburger. I don't have a problem with a Venti Iced White Chocolate Mocha. I don't have a problem with all-you-can-eat buffets.

I have a big problem with not offering options and choices for us to choose the RightSize at the RightPrice. Why is it OK to offer huge dishes at restaurants? But not small reasonable sizes at appropriate prices.

This blog's vision to to start RightSizingAmerica. Let's find the RightSizes. Let's publicize those places, those portions, those companies and people who are giving us choices.

And let's also publicize those companies, schools and people who are NOT giving us choices, and are turning America (and next, the World) into gigantic Madison Ave.-eating robots.
