  • The Men Who Made Us Fat



    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

    Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for -- the pure enjoyment of food.” Anthony Bourdain

          I just watched this and it's very hard for me to not to get angry. Watching these women working out, I can't help thinking they are working way harder than I do and probably have a stronger will than I do and yet they are fat all because they eat foods that are intentionally designed to be addictive. How evil is that to come up with a food that will cause disease and to mass market it in quantities that no one should ever consume? A couple years ago I found an old bottle of soda that was produced in my small town in the early 60s, the bottle held 6oz. At some point the soda producers decided to not only use a sweetener that was much sweeter but to also increase the size of the beverage. Now we have rampant obesity and they act like they are completely innocent.

                  I thought it was interesting to see things from a British point of view. Especially the part where they had to figure out a way to get British people to eat more often because they were really reluctant to eat between meals. I suppose they did the same thing to us in the US but I never noticed it or maybe I'm too young to have noticed it.

                  People ought to realize that marketers do that with everything. They usually create a product and then try to figure out how to get people to buy it or buy more of it. That's why you have stupid things like those kleenex towels in special boxes that fit on your bathroom towel rack and then commercials about how much better they are than real towels. We're all just dumping grounds for whatever garbage they create, stops along the way to the landfill for the products, and wallets for reaching into. That our bodies' metabolism makes sugar so lucrative is a total bonus.

                    At some point some-one managed to convince most of UK that everything in America was better, probably somethng to do with MTV and Friends, now we just run along at the US's heals like an annoying dweeb kid trying to be with the popular gang, doing every daft thing you do. Now we are paying the price for acting without thinking. Don't get me wrong, some great things have been given to us from America, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Mountain Biking to name 2. But other stuff not so much.

                      I suppose, in comparison to much of the garbage we've adopted from emulating our North American cousins RHCP can be considered a relative good.

                          The conclusion they came to with that rat study was depressing. The rats WOULDN'T overeat on fatty foods that were extremely energy dense (despite having free access to as much as they wanted) BUT when they gave them processed carb foods, they instantly began overeating and got obese. Yet the show came to the conclusion that it's the "energy dense" food and "overeating" that's the problem, when it was clearly the carbs and/or processing. /facepalm

                            I think that the problem they were pointing out was that the sugary processed and energy dense combo is the killer.
                            The high sugar processed foods drive higher appetites, then add in some processed energy dense (fast foods and such) and it's basically a time bomb. A one two punch if you will.

                            Healthy whole foods, such as primal promotes, that are energy dense weren't shown as problem foods from what I saw. It was all high sugar, high sodium, high fat processed stuff. Remember... no one is just eating a burger, they are eating having the big drink and big fries too... and they had a big chocolate bar just a couple of hours ago...
                            “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
                            ~Friedrich Nietzsche
                            And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
