The government claims that the reason why people are getting fat is they eat too much and don't exercise. But according to one expert, this is not the real cause of obesity. Gary Taubes, an author and independent investigator in health policy at the University of California, Berkeley, says that there are many examples why it doesn't work.
In 1934, at the height of the Great Depression, there was barely enough to eat, but there were so many fat kids in New York City, a childhood obesity clinic that was founded at Columbia University. What they eat were inexpensive, starchy or sweet foods that made them gained their weight.
One theory had been around for decades but has largely been ignored. It implicates refined sugars and grains because of the effect on the hormone insulin that regulates fat accumulation. Interaction can be found in medical textbooks.
A study by the National Institutes of Health shows that a low-carbohydrate diet, which is reduced in bread, pasta, and sweets, and choosing the red meat, fish, fruit, and vegetables are producing good results in preventing weight gain and achieving weight loss.
The government is right that we shouldn't eat a huge amount of food, but how we eat makes a big difference.
Diets work if you don’t have enough determination why we should take good care of our body.
