Just because we take less vacations doesn't mean we are the least lazy. Lazy in terms of work is one thing. Lazy in terms of exercise and lifestyle is another. More than 60% of Americans do not achieve the recommended amount of regular physical activity. Almost 25% are completely sedentary. 50% of Americans who begin exercise training programs drop out within 6 months. This is due largely to a perceived lack of time, fatigue, lack of willpower, and lack of knowledge about fitness. We are one of the fattest, laziest, most sedentary countries on the planet. Sure we may work more, but we are still less active than most other countries. You have to incorporate more than just hours worked on the job when you consider laziness in a country. Where do you get YOUR information? From online forums and internet articles? I've taken years of exercise and nutrition classes at the University of Wisconsin which is where I've learned most of my information, along with years of research outside of school. Quit being Steve's lackey and do some research yourself before you try to deny my knowledge.
