  • Gross. It should be the opposite, if you ask me. Like if you weigh under 100 you eat for free. Or maybe I'm just crazy.

  • That is just disgusting. Not the people that are that big, but the fact that this place is encouraging unhealthy habits.

  • But do the people actually let them weigh them? I would think someone that big would never get on a scale in a public place. Now, if it was a healthy place with only healthy food, that would be a different story.

  • Wow...that just seems very unhealthy to me. People bitch and moan about obese children, so now they encourage it. That's cute...about a cute as a liver disease.

  • Good marketing, in my opinion. I mean, at 350 lbs the life span drops drastically. So, really, they're not losing more than a couple of coupons when it's all said and done.
