    30-40 years ago very few Amish youth were over-weigh in Holmes County but now that has changed. Part is due to getting off the farm which means less exercise.

    They not only eat at McDonalds, but become engrossed in the televisions that are blaring at McDonalds. Personally, I can’t stand those televisions and have walked out of McDs where they are especially obnoxious, and either go hungry or find a quieter place to eat. I don’t watch television at home, either. So I probably watch less television than some Amish people do (except perhaps during the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, when I watch with my wife).

    That is so fascinating! When I hear the Amish name I would never think of them eating at a fast food restaurants and I LOVE that McDonalds sign!!

    I’ve never seen a similar sign on fast food places elsewhere. McDonald’s is ahead of the curve on this one 😉

    Katie it’s funny that there have been new stories about Amish keeping weight off lately (due to genetics I believe?) but you make a good point that the trend against farming must be working in the opposite direction, at least a bit. Although most Amish trades are still manual ones.

    Spokesrider, hear hear :)
