I don’t think anyone here is wrong. The obesity problem involves so many variables and probably all of them have been brought up in this thread. I don’t mean to be harsh to anyone for being fat because pre-primal I was no different. Like many of you I was obese and in very poor health. I drank soda and ate garbage every day, and I never exercised.
Many on this thread have brought up the notion that people’s attitudes have changed over the past few decades. I agree. I grew up in the late 70s and 80s and even then junk food was considered a “treat” to most people. Same with soda. When I was a kid I didn’t know anyone that ate junk food on a daily basis. That was for special occasions. There weren’t vending machines everywhere like there is now. Look around - those things are everywhere! Nowadays people eat junk food exclusively and graze all day. Most people didn’t graze back then either. I mentioned how stressed people are here in the states. Ridiculously stressed. Is it like that in other countries?
