Questionable Facts

At last!! Proof that a taste for expensive restaurants, drinks receptions, and sedentary office life does not lie at the heart of my weight control issues. It's not my lifestyle that's to blame for being a few pounds overweight - it's my genes. Thanks Mum. That should keep her quiet the next time she gets on at me for not being a size 10...

Except that it doesn't add up. After all, almost noone was obese fifty years ago - and the gene pool hasn't changed much in that time. Even if some people find it harder to control weight than others genes can hardly explain the obesity epidemic that's hit the country.

Facts are facts. Sixty percent of British people will be obese by the year 2010 because modern life is bad for our health. The majority of people exist off diets permeated by rich, fatty, nutrition-free convenience food - because they are too busy to sit down and cook. We live lives of sloth, trapped in offices like those mice scientists use for experiments, and then express surprise at the expanse of flab around our middles.

Fad diets won't change that. Only a lifestyle revolution can. And that has got to start with challenging the efficiency epidemic that encourages these characteristics in the first place

Here Here! One has to put in the time to lose weight and keep it off - cardio, diet, weight training. It won't happen over night! Weight loss is an accumulation of weeks and months of hard work. Weight loss is proactive. You need at least three months before you'll notice a change in your body.

OR what is even worse today is that many doctors have reported a stark increase in the amount of 'thin fat' people. No muscle. The more muscle you have the more fat you burn. I wish people, especially women, would realize how essential weight training is to a better body. Cardio doesn't sculpt the body like resistance training.

If parents happen to be obese, surely the chances are their diet is a large factor. The parents are then going to feed their children roughly the same food that they are eating, hence the children become obese too.
The only way I can think of to test the genealogical link is to monitor kids that that don’t live with their natural parents.

60% of people of british people obese by 2010? Will that mean 60% of brits being unhappy, miserable, lead an unfulfilling life whilst been on death’s door? That seems to be the impression the media seem to promotes.
