1.6 billion people worldwide suffer from this deadly disease. 1.6 billion people are overweight, obese or morbidly obese and dying from it.
If genetically humans are programmed to be lean machines, how did we get to this point?
If by the law of nature, a lean human is a healthy human, then a fat human is a diseased human.
Do you know anyone who is overweight? Excess body fat is a signal that their body is not healthy. It is not in its natural state.
Have you ever seen a fat newborn baby? Some are slightly heavier than others, but not fat. This is because we are designed to be lean.
Kids only get fat as a result of the foods they are fed, and adults get fat as a result of the foods they choose to eat.
But if we are meant to be lean why do so many people struggle to stay lean?
In the thousands of years we have inhabited this planet, we have evolved. Yet research shows that we have only evolved about 1 per cent. Yet with that 1% we have made everything around us evolve at a ridiculously rapid rate.
During this evolution, we decided to minimise the intake of our main fuel, the life force that keeps us alive, lean and well. We made up new “foods”. Pre-packed, pre-cooked, preserved, fortified, low fat, no fat, diet, chemicalized… death cocktails.
We somehow convinced ourselves that chips, cookies, chocolates and take always are better than vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, meat and fish.
Yet it was the moment we stopped eating the latter, that we started getting fat.
We have got so lost, that now billions of people around the world claim they don’t know what to do to lose weight. That it’s really hard, and that they have tried everything, to no avail.
We all know that if we put the wrong type of petrol in the car, it either won’t run for long, or it won’t run at all. It breaks down.
Yet we are a broken down planet that keep putting the wrong fuel in our tanks, at the same time we wonder why we are fat, tired, lethargic, cranky, depressed, and more and more sick.
So much for our intelligence…
Would you catch the flu virus on purpose? Or deliberately break your own leg?
No. Yet we keep feeding ourselves poison and wonder why we look fat and feel sick.
It’s no mystery. The cure to our fatitis has been obvious all along, yet we have chosen to ignore it.
We have arms and legs because we are supposed to move, and we have an earth that produces everything we need to eat. No need to mess with it.
So, if you have been struggling to lose or maintain your weight, try eating what you are supposed to eat and moving like you are supposed to move, and don’t be surprised to find out you are your ideal shape and size quicker than you can blink.
