Diet & Spirits

“Supersize Me”…..But how do you reverse that? Is it possible in a place where fast food is offered on every corner, and available in school lunch programs? What happened to eating wholesome foods that were offered not too long ago and why do we eat the foods we eat now-a-days. Growing up in the 80’s fast food was a reward. Today some people eat 3-5 times a week. I don’t get it. Have parents become so lazy that they don’t care what kind of behaviors they are teaching their children, or can we blame it on outside influences that spend millions of dollars in advertising that gets us to that 99-cent menu at the nearest fast food joint?

So how are we fixing the health trends that are prevailing? Today’s society would say that Atkins, South Beach and the Zone hold the answers to reverse the effects of high fat foods. Go to any market and you can buy anything that’s “low carb”. Eat as much of it as you want and you don’t gain weight. We have the need to drive the biggest car on the road. Does anyone see the trend? We are a society based on consumerism…eat a lot, drink a lot. We have learned to do everything in excess including how we eat. We have lost control and it’s showing in the many waistlines across America.
