factored into the weight gain and weight loss equation there will never be a
solution to this problem.

Nearly all the modern
non-foods that people have become accustomed to and consider to actually be
normal real foods have contributed greatly to excessive
weight gain and can be substituted with a
Non-foods such as "Twinkies," fake chocolate cake
made in most supermarkets, Cheese snacks, Fake Mac and Cheese, sodas,
watered down fruit drink, imitation fruit drinks, waxy preservative filled chocolate bars
etc., all had or have an original counterpart that these foods were made to
imitate at a cheaper price and substantially lesser quality. Part of what
makes these foods cheaper is the fillers used in place of real ingredients
and additives added to do everything from preserve appearance, ward off
insect or grub infestation, or otherwise "embalm" the food to last
indefinitely, or to make people crave them.
Do not put it past
a large profit driven corporation to consider addicting people to their
product for the sake of profit. The tobacco industry did and they own
several of the food companies.
It should also be
mentioned that one of the reasons why these foods are considered safe is
likely because they pass all mandatory microbial testing. In other words
bacteria like e-coli, strepp, salmonella and the like may not be present in
them. Although certain bacteria are not good to have in foods, not all
bacteria is unsafe. One reason why bacterial activity may be minimal in
these foods is chemicals used to preserve them. All foods, even the best of
foods spoil. One should be suspicious if they don't.
You would not
believe what some companies would do to save a fraction of a fraction of a
penny per unit for the sake of per share stock prices for their stock holders. Original ingredients are
substituted with much, much cheaper and questionable ingredients all the
time. New laws are often
passed permitting additives that are known toxins and carcinogens under
pressure from lobbyists. This never makes the evening news. But it is
It is normal and
essential that all food should in time break down and decompose on its own. If it
were not capable of breaking down it is equally incapable of being digested by the body.
Many foods are rendered non digestible by their additives and preservatives.
The very fact that these substances remain traceable long after having
been eaten means that they are not digestible. If a person were to eat an
apple, for instance, no test could determine that it had been eaten after
can these foods do but accumulate in the body and make the general
populace fat or otherwise over weight. Whether these foods should be eaten
at all is up to the individual. But, researching the ingredients should
become a priority for anyone really wanting to make up their minds one way
or the other.
Some people would
argue that buying organic foods is prohibitively expensive. To begin with
we should remember that not that long ago all food was organic and
reasonably priced. The chemical companies lobbied hard and pushed their
chemicals onto farmers; in many cases against their will. There were stiff fines and penalties if they did
not use them on their crops. This was the beginning of non-organic food
and produce and has only been in place for about 60 - 80 years. Although this did increased yield initially but lowered the
overall quality of that yield. (today much of the soils are depleted
and will not grow anything without the fertilizers) In other words
without the chemicals there would be no crop.
Many seem to be feeling that
need more food volume to be satisfied. The flavor is diminished, and things made from
these crops are not the same as they previously were. The problem is that after a
few generations of eating this new "lesser" food, no one remembers what it
should have actually tasted like. Those who travel abroad to Europe or
even central Mexico attest to the generally more flavorful food and the
lack of obesity in those societies because of it.
If one were to
compare the actual food value pound per pound between organic products and
non organic products one would find that the organic is actually cheaper
for a number of reasons.
a) organic foods
provide more nutrition and are often more flavorful, satisfying and
b) if you compare
the watered down juices compared to a bottle of the same size of pure 100%
juice. One would see that even at the lower price the watered down juice
is many, many times more expensive. you're paying for water colored with
some juice plus flavorings, sugar and stabilizers. The amount of juice you
think you are buying is minute. You may as well drink water. This can be
said of most other conventional fast foods and convenience foods. Some
joke about their packaging having more food value than its contents.
c) if a person
factors in the cost of all of their medicines (that in many cases
amounts to hundreds if not thousands of dollars a month) having eaten
better food would become real cheap and without the burden of the ailment
that requires the medications.
stamped as "diet" have never helped anyone lose any weight and should be
avoided at all cost. If they had, based on the sheer amount that is sold each year,
there should have been no obesity at all. Many people find them addictive. How can
an addictive substance actually do anyone any good. The only people who
benefit from anything addictive are the people who manufacture and sell it.
