Unfortunately it is a fact that in the United States, two thirds of the population is overweight and one third obese. Since many people around the world, especially US citizens, fight the battle of weight gain and personal health this brings us to the Readers Poll question . . . Should the restaurants and buffets in Las Vegas casinos offer more healthy food options?  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!  (see other opinions below)

PLEASE NOTE: The following text entries are the exact words of our readers

I have a weight problem and would appreciate having more choices when visiting vegas buffets.  Pam  Dallas TX

All my life i have watched my weight and when i go to vegas i let go and dont want to see more healthy food, give me the sugar.  Vince O. 

I do not have a wieght problem but i would like more healthy choices in Vegas.  D Miller New York

Buffet are historically for the pig out. However, if some healthy alternatives are offered you may get more attendance by the spouse or friend who doesn't like to be stuffed.  Robert Ogilvie  Gurnee, Illinois

I am a very health conscious person who will admit to an occasional feeding at the trough of PH, Rio, or Paris, which are, by far, the three best. I have never found it difficult to find healthy nutrition at most Vegas eating establishments, I simply have to ask the staff.
Obesity is promoted by lifestyles, eating habits, and self control. That is the observation of this registered nurse.  Nick  Knoxville, TN

Why would I want to eat healthier in sin city when I can do that at home. I go to Las Vegas because of all the great buffets, the gambling and the greatest atmosphere ever. If people cannot try to eat healthier at home then they will hardly eat healthier in Vegas.   Nigel Armstrong  Ballymena  United Kingdom

No, usually when you visit Vegas, you are on vacation. While onvacation, anything goes. The buffets in Vegas are Famous!   Cindy McKee  Poland, OH

Vegas is for letting loose, and that is what i plan to do with my belt loops.   Healthy food all year long, i go to vegas to party and let go.  Donna W Portland.

If I wanted healthy food, I'd buy healthy food. Don't screw up the menu!  George Carl   Largo FL

it is always a good idea to offer patrons "healthy" food choices, however, chances are when people are on vacation, especially in LasVegas, they are going to "splurge" and get back to their routines when they get home. So, yes offer some, but dont worry too much about it.   tony ravida   rensselaer ny
