Fast Food Diet
Here in the U.S. so many people are fighting their weight. Especially as we age, the metabolism slows down and it is easier to gain weight. But it is not just adults. How many overweight teens, children and young children have you seen lately? Way too many.
Fast foods diet tends to put on weight. It is too high in carbohydrates and fats, providing little in the way of fruits and vegetables, which provide fiber and vitamins and minerals.
In addition chemicals in our foods are messing with our metabolism.
Chemicals in our foods
And something I don’t hear many people talking about, is that some of the chemicals that are used as pesticides on our food and on our lawns get into your system and cause hormonal problems – too much estrogen in both men and women. Being too estrogenic also puts on excess fat.
How bad is the problem?
From the PBS site as an example: the estrogenic effect of chemicals running off of the FARMLANDS into ponds and streams, is causing too much estrogen in some frogs. The male frogs are developing eggs in their testes, actually able to be fertilized by another male frog and lay fertile eggs!
The longer I live the less confidence I have in drugs and the greater is my confidence in the regulation and administration of diet and regimen.
