Sure there are folks who eat too much and never get off their hienies but there are also folks that have weight problems because of medical issues,
prescription meds that mention weight gain in the side effects section. Thyroid problems, hormone problems and genetics can play a part too...and my
personal favorite...all the engineered foods nowadays. Growth hormone in poultry/beef/pork, etc. What do you think happens when folks eat any of
that...they get fat. Anti-depressants can cause weight gain, (probably more than half the people in this country are on those). So many factors can
enter into weight gain issues...not everyone is sitting in front of the boob tube and watching soaps and eating buckets of fried chicken. Some folks
exercise and still don't lose much weight. Any one or a combo of the above things mentioned can seriously cause loosing weight to be an exercise in
futility, (pun intended). Sure, some folks are lazy sloths but not all and generalizing is wrong.
I used to jog in my back woods, carrying a rifle on one sling and a shotgun on sling on the other, a 45 sidearm and a backpack, and was fit...from the
jogging or just the added weight of the arms?
When one turns 50, it just gets harder to maintain, whether it is from hormone imbalance, thyroid issues, all the crap foods, GMOs, vaccines,
prescription meds for BP/heart issues or whatever. I admire folks who try. I find gardening gives me lots of exercise as well as dancercise and the
like...whatever floats yer boat.
Food nowadays is less about nutrition and more about being infused with hormones, antibiotics, GM tampering and the like...it's no wonder some of us
are turning into butterballs and wondering why. Foods that we felt were healthy a long time ago are no longer healthy. Even milk and such has all
kinds of addatives...they are planning on putting aspartame in milk now...mixing rice with human liver genes, and so on...no wonder there is so much
obesity and sickness, even amongst those of us that do exercise.
