Want to be fat? It's easy. Just continue to eat high-carb diets. It's the carbs, stupid, that set the conditions for obesity -- especially here in the US. After extensive research into the causes of obesity, it seems that the "authorities" continue to preach "just reduce calories" as the means to an end. Now, they want governments to enact taxes on poor food choices and lower the costs of so-called healthy foods. That's not going to work without proper education on what it is that equals a good diet. It's more protein, less carbs, and, yes, the right kinds of fats. Low fat diets equal obesity, but that message isn't getting through. And until America wakes up an realizes that all the fast food we consume will continue to promote increased obesity, nothing will change.
Check out this article in the Washington Post - click HERE. It claims that half of US adults will be obese by 2030. I contend that we're already there!
