How do you lose weight? Substitute diet drinks for sugary drinks. Eat low fat foods. Just eat less of the bad foods – it’s all about the calories. We are told, “Just have more willpower”. These ideas are false.
They are food and diet industry propaganda that make and keep us fat and sick. Lies by the food industry combined with bad government policy based on food industry lobbying are the major cause of our obesity and diabetes epidemic.
Now over 35 percent of Americans are obese, and almost 70 percent are overweight. This is not an accident but the result of careful marketing and money in politics.
We are told it is all about making better choices. If we all took more personal responsibility we could stop this obesity and diabetes epidemic. We have been told there are no good or bad foods, that the key to weight loss is moderation.
And, of course, if we all just exercised more all of us would lose weight. These ideas hold us hostage.
