You are what you eat! By Wakime Hauser. Convenience is making us fat!
In todays fast past world it is difficult to consume all the essential ingredients our body's needs. Often people take the quick way out and turn to processed foods instead of whole foods. The Basic difference with out writing a book between the two is whole foods are foods that has been processed or refined as little as possible and is free from additives or other artificial substances and processed foods are microwave meals or ready meals. drinks, such as milk or soft drinks. Processed foods have made it more convenient to eat on the go. In moderation this would not be a problem. However processed foods have become a way of life and have negatively impacted our society. According to an article in the live strong online magazine over the last 60 years adult obesity as increased by 25% for 10% in 1950 to 35% in 2011-12. ( http://www.livestrong.com/article/384722-how-much-have-obesity-rates-risen-since-1950/). What's crazier than that is that in 1950 there were no Gold gyms, LA fitness, edge fitness and all the small gyms we see today. Also, there were not fast food chains, franchised restaurants and and microwaves everywhere. With that being said, the battle is between what we consume and activity or lack of activity. If it is not bad enough that our whole food is typically tampered with already we also consume an abundance of processed foods. Changing habits starts with knowledge. Read about what you are eating. Food is fuel and we need it to survive. We don't need many of the food that we eat on a daily basis, me included. Let's go back to the 1950's. One reason why people were not obese in the 1950's at the rate they are today is because people ate less processed food in my opinion. It wasn't and option then. It's an option now although it doesn't have to be a choice. So make better choices and don't let convenience make you FAT!
