Want To Lose Weight? Go Directly To Jail.

Broderick Lloyd Laswell

It seems that the 3,000 calorie a day diet that the Arkansas jail provides for Broderick Lloyd Laswell isn’t enough for him to maintain his weight.

Instead of being grateful that he is 100 pounds closer to a healthy weight, he is suing the county.

“If we are in a small pod all day (and) do next to nothing for physical exercise, we should not lose weight,” the suit says. “The only reason we lost weight in here is because we are literally being starved to death.”

At 3,000 calories a day, he might feel like he’s being “starved to death,” but that is nearly 1,000 calories more than the daily recommended average. I find it appalling that he is suing. People pay good money to go to places that will restrict their diet enough to lose 100 pounds.

    What an ass – perhaps he should think about the fact that if he hadn’t committed a crime he wouldn’t be “starving” in the first place.

    He might be thinner when he’s released but he sure as hell won’t be wiser.

    I bang my fists on my desk and laugh.

    I almost wished that I was in jail.

    But then again, they probably have really greasy and unhealthy food there.

    And god, 3000 calories, that’s a lot.
