The reason we are fat is very simple.

The nutrition has been taken from our food. Replaced by engineering to promote pest control and excellerated growth.

Check out FarmacySeeds.Net for sustainable nutrition and information

So we eat food that once was enough for people's health yet no longer contain the nutrition we need. So our bodies are telling us we need more nutrition. This triggers that hungry effect that is in all of us. Some are better at keeping it at bay, some are not.

We are in effect improperly nourished. Things like ground grains were never meant to be a mainstay in our diets.

I will get off the soap box now, heh heh, cuz I think you have the idea.

"Why we get fat" is the easier read of Good Calories, Bad Calories.
Gary is a science writer and backs up his stuff with documented research.
My addition would be "smoke some nice weed' and think before we eat. :munchies:
