hink about this, how many forms of exercise did our grandparents do that were taught at school or Uni and promoted throughout peoples lives that exercise was important, that we do today. Why don't you ask them and see what they say.

(2) We are also the only animal to suffer from Type2 Diabetes.
(3) We are the only animal that collects large amounts of viscera body fat.
We have to imprison and domesticate animals to simulate any of our health issues.

Because that garbage works, I dont have the best metabolism i can sit around a year eat what i want get up to a soft 240 lbs and in 4 months time be down to a solid 200 easy. It is all about eating right and doing cardio.
By cardio i dont mean a slow paced 3.0mph walk for 15 mins a day. I mean busting your butt and busting your butt consistently.
Consistently eat good non processed foods, watch your calories and esp carb intake. Eat low GI carbs and sweat sweat sweat cardio it up! Dont expect to walk a 20 min mile a day, cheat every few days, and lose a bunch of weight.
No food just used to be too expensive for the average person to over-eat. It wasn't until the 1960s when food prices started to drop and over eating even became an option.
Insulin does play a role but it is not the entire answer to this problem. The plan you propose of eliminating breads, starches, etc is basically what the Atkins diet does. The reason Atkins works is because you send your body to keatosis (sp). And your body starts pulling the necessary fuel it needs from fat and muscle mass.
