Am I to Blame
for my Overweight ?
In case you have too many pounds on your hips, you might struggle with this question: "Am I to blame for my overweight?" For the people around you this is no question at all. On the contrary; they are more than willing to let you know that you are. Perhaps not in words, but definitely through body language.
The problem is: you must agree. After all, it is you who has eaten so much. You feel guilty. On the other hand, some people can eat all day and will never gain weight. How come?
50 Years ago Obesity
hardly existed !
To answer this question we have to find out why 50 years ago hardly anyone was overweight. So, what is the reason that nowadays so many people are? Is it only because we have too little exercise? If so, our (grand)parents all must have been Michael Jordans, right? Well, they weren't. Did our parents really have so much more of it then? Many of them worked in an office and sat down whole day long and still, the group of people with obese was a very, very small minority.
Apparently the issue is a bit more complicated than it seems at first sight. Could there be another reason for this (inter)national problem?
I did research on this and the outcome is stunning: the food industry appears to be guilty for a big part, when it comes to obese.
Tobacco Industry Strategy
This industry uses the same strategy the tobacco industry used in the 70s and 80s. They said: "There is no proof for smoking being linked to cancer". And for a long time they were right about that: we couldn't proof it, although we saw people dying from cancer who smoked all their lives.
Today, the food industry claims that there is no evidence of a link between processed foods / drinks and obesity. And that is true, we can't proof it although we see, that obese has become United States' worst enemy when it comes to health.
But fortunately we're not in a court room. We don't have to proof anything. We have our common sense.
"But you don't have to buy our products?" they say. Well, that's a little short. When you enter a supermarket, you're exposed to countless temptations from all sides. It's like all those beautifully coloured packages shouting at you: "Buy me, buy me! John, Mary, Jeannette, Gary we are delicious."
All these products are drawing your attention. This seduction is the result of a well-conceived, billion dollar marketing strategy. A strategy that makes you surrender over and over again. It is the reason why you come home with more things than you actually need.
