Today September 2nd 2012 Mercola.com has a good article on the latest about "fructose" and the the points that are needed to understand why there is an epidemic of Obesity in the Western world. And come to think of it, in most of the world, as the nations of the world adopt a North American diet.
It's now a well known fact that people thought of as slim and trim in countries like Japan and China (some exception of course), once they go on a North American diet, they blow out and can go obese just like far too many in the Western world have done, over the last 20, 30, 40 years.
If you are raising children you need to be very concerned about their diet, your diet also, as you set the example.
The Western world has come to realize that in the last 20, 30, 40, years we have produced more and more overweight and obese children. And so the news media keep mentioning it from time to time; schools are seeing and admitting what they have done wrong in the last decades, so they are promoting more exercise and better school lunches.
The Western nations know that the drain on the medical system for overweight and obese children and adults, is HUGE ..... RESULTING IN ALL KINDS OF HEALTH PROBLEMS DOWN THE ROAD.
TIME TO TAKE CHECK! HOW ARE YOU DOING?
YES IT CAN BE HARD FOR SOME TO KEEP THEIR WEIGHT WITHIN THE CORRECT BOUNDS FOR THEIR HEIGHT AND BODY STRUCTURE. METABOLISM CAN CHANGE OVER TIME. I KNOW, AS MINE DID AT AGE 40, THEN AGE 60.
SO YES I HAVE TO DELIBERATELY WORK WITH MY DIET AND EXERCISE LIFE TO KEEP MY WEIGHT UNDER CONTROL. SO I DO KNOW WHAT MANY HAVE TO DO FOR WEIGHT CONTROL.
BUT IT CAN BE DONE. TAKES SOME WILL POWER, BUT YOU CAN DO IT, YES YOU CAN!!
