i think we are being GREATLY MISLED, in a lot of the "facts" we are told about obesity. the question is is it just ignorance on the part of
those telling us what is making us "fat " or is it intentional?
for example SUGAR supposedly makes us fat. yet it only seems to happen in North America? i have found for example that quite a lot of food in
the Philippines is LOADED with sugar, even the BREAD is overloaded with it. yet most Philippino people are NOT obese. in fact quite a lot of the Asian
food (i am not even gonna count western Chinese food most are familiar with as it is not real Chinese food lol), that i have ever eaten has had a fair
amount f sugar involved. yet again is there a major obesity issue in Asians? i ask people from Britain, have you had an obesity problem the last
couple hundred years? if sugar was the issue Britain should have been grossly obese at least that long due to what i understand was an extreme high
sugar intake that was rotting out everyone's teeth.
we are also told it is from high carb foods like potatoes and rice. again most Asian people put away quite a lot of rice at a time without becoming
obese. i was rather amused when my father got diagnosed as diabetic (he wasn't a very large person but was a bit overweight), was told to cut down
his rice consumption. thing is he always ate LESS (say maybe less than 1/4 of normal servings) rice than all the skinny people around him did,
seriously i can't believe how much rice i see people eat, with an equal portion of whatever is served with it (which may even include potatoes,and
lots of fats ).
how about FATS, something else we are told is part of the problem. if this was the case why is it only NOW becoming an issue? it's not like we
haven't been eating meats and even deep-frying/frying foods for an extremely long time BEFORE the issue.
POP is yet another thing tagged. but then why was i skinny while i was drinking OVER FOUR LITERS of COKE a day? i'll admit it is not healthy
but i don't think that it (at least the old style with sugar and not the corn crap) is the issue.
LACK of EXERCISE is blamed, yet i see obese people almost killing themselves trying to slim down with exercise to no avail. and even see obese people
who do a lot of manual labor, or participate in sports regularly and hard. while at the same time see skinny people that work a sitting job, and
don't get off the couch.
then we have FAST FOOD. ah the king of blame. WHY is it so BAD? pizza- bread- fairly healthy, tomato sauce- fairly healthy, heck even the toppings are
good for you not to mention in SMALL PORTIONS overall. so whats bad about that? the "grease" you sometimes see on it? that is the same grease that
is within those same "healthy" toppings like the meat and especially the cheese, they are not say ADDED IN or something. and like i said there is
actually very LITTLE of anything. seriously take a large pizza, pull off and pile up each topping, except for possibly the cheese you will find that
on that pizza that 3 or 4 people may be eating that there is actually VERY LITTLE of anything, probably less than ONE person would eat if they were
say served on their own. so why is it so bad for you?
how about the "evil" hamburger, what is exactly wrong with it? again we have bread which is not unhealthy, the burger patty- just ground up
beef (maybe pork, horse, lamb or other meat) some spices a little egg normally (ok maybe some of the "fillers" they use aren't so good but that
could be easily changed), toppings- yet again most of the topping are actually healthy vegetables (ok not the lettuce which is pointless to eat), so
what is wrong there? the mayo, mustard, ketchup? again these are all things that have been eaten for years without everyone being "obese". the
grease? yet again the grease is part of the meat, not something they really ADD to it.
french fries are also BAD, but why? what is a french fry? it is a potato that has been deep fried. potatoes are good for you. even if fried in lard,
yet again you run into that deep frying has been going on an extreme longer time than the "obesity" issue. even if the lard (fat) WAS the issue
wouldn't using the "vegetable oil" as they mostly use now fix that?
just look at things they call bad but if not from a "restraunt" are considered ok for you. is it the restraunt itself that makes you fat?
i even wonder if the "portion size" is a real issue. think of it this way. is the portion size the cause of being fat, or is it with being fat you
need more food (energy) to operate?
no i think the problem is much deeper and more hidden than what they try to foist off on us is the issue.
to be cont.
