Think about this for a moment: When has dieting proved to be of long term benefit to anyone, even in the most remote way? If diets actually worked, people would be getting slimmer. Instead we see more and more people dieting and getting fatter every day. Diet elimination was never more necessary than right now. Please let me explain why.
Widespread weight problems started when "diet experts", like nutritionists, arrived on the scene to tell us that our diet was wrong. We listened, and when we began to get fat, they had a new diet for us. They seemed to have formed a mutual synergy with the packaged food industry which branched out to become the diet food industry.
In the seventies, before diets were thought to be necessary, people seemed just as healthy as they do today. More so actually, because most of them were slim. Yet, they did not have the great advantage of all the medical advances we take for granted today.
It is one thing, when people create destructive behavior towards themselves. It is quite another thing when it is done by others, under the guise of serving your health and well being. That's when we all end up as experiments for vested interests.
If we allow others to dictate our diet it is not long before weight problems become inherited. that's when little kids begin life with weight problems It's when entire families become fat and believe it is their destiny. Once a generational influence begins there will soon be no way back. Before that happens, somebody has to step in.
The only person who is going to care enough about your family to step in and bring the madness to a halt - is you. You may be the only person who can save your children and your grandchildren from a destiny that can still be changed. If you are overweight yourself you will know exactly what a life of being fat is going to mean to them.
People have forgotten, or they simply were not around to know when things were different. They imagine that in the past, hardship and lack of food was the reason people did not get fat. That's simply wrong. During the war there were rations, but the shops were still open and people did not starve. In the fifties, sixties and seventies, there was no shortage of food and there was plenty of variety. There were even fast food outlets.
Just as today, strokes and heart attacks happened. They did not seem any more common, they were just a lot more likely to be fatal. We can thank medicine for that, not dieting. A lot of people still ate bacon and eggs at breakfast. Meat from the butcher still had a normal amount of fat and bread was not viewed as a necessity with every meal.
People with weight problems were usually people with a medical problem like diabetes or a thyroid condition. When people would put on a few pounds they would keep away from desserts for a couple of weeks and get on with their life. They could do that because diet cravings were unheard of. There was no such thing as a food addiction.
In those days, the idea that a healthy child could be obese would have been unthinkable then, just as it ought to be today. Yet today we see little children start school already obese. We see entire families giving up on ever losing weight. It is time for you to intercede because any real change can only begin in your own kitchen.
