PETA Urges Mick To Lose Weight The Vegan Way

January 11, 2008

At first I wasn’t going to blog anything about Oklahoma City going on a diet, but after reading this press release and letter from PETA I had to laugh out loud. PETA would be very upset with me if they knew what an avid hunter I was and how I just love to BBQ all sorts of meats. In the letter Bruce Friedrich urges mayor Cornett to go Vegan to achieve the city’s goal of shedding 1 million pounds. Not eating meat to most Oklahomans is laughable especially to Oklahoma Joe a fellow pit master. Tell me what you think in the comments section. Also if you agree or disagree with Bruce give him a call and let him know what you think.

Oklahoma City – After learning that Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett is encouraging residents to lose weight by setting up a Web site where people can sign up to track their weight loss, PETA has sent the mayor a letter with some dieting advice: Go vegetarian.

“Overwhelming scientific evidence shows that vegetarians are far less likely to be overweight than meat-eaters and far more likely to be in better overall health,” writes PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich, an Oklahoma native, in his letter to Cornett. “The American Dietetic Association–the nation’s largest group of nutrition professionals–reviewed hundreds of studies and concluded that vegetarians have lower rates of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer than people who eat meat.”

To help the mayor achieve his goal of encouraging Oklahoma City residents shed a total of 1 million pounds, PETA is offering to send its sexy Lettuce Ladies to cohost a “Ditch the Meat, Lose the Fat” Oklahoma-style cookout–complete with meatless Boca Chik’n Patties, Gardenburger Riblets, and all the fixins–for everyone who signs up for the mayor’s “This City Is Going on a Diet” program.
