Obesity -The Growing Threat

I just listened to a radio show on NPR this morning talking about the continuing trend in the rise of obesity numbers amongst adults and children. In 2007-2008, the prevalence of obesity was 32.2% among adult men and 35.5% among adult women. Obesity is a risk factor for a variety of chronic conditions including diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, stroke, heart disease, certain cancers, and arthritis. Higher grades of obesity are associated with excess mortality, primarily from cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. 


So with the whole universe turning into Jabba The Hut, the question remains-what is causing these ridiculous rises in obesity? The common answer: Everyone is eating too much. The common solution: Eat Less / Exercise More. Yeah, hold on, isn't that what they have been telling people for the last 30 years?? Yeah, it hasn't worked for the last 30 years and it damn sure isn't working today. Reason: Eating too much isn't the problem or the cause- Dumb Ass!! 


I deal with people who have weight issues - or in reality body composition issues. Your body weight is really relative to what it's composed of. People say they weigh too much. I say people are too fat. I could give a damn about how much you weigh. How much of that weight comes from blubber? If you don't know then you don't have a clue. So back to the issue of what is the cause. If I say people aren't eating too much- then what is it? There are alot of reasons actually. The environment, social brainwashing, chemical additives, preservatives and dangerous ingredients in food, the whole western diet and food related economy, social changes in behavior and the list goes on -but we can't forget my number one cause -people not eating enough of the right stuff at the right times.
