LET’S UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM

I believe you have to understand why you have a problem if your going to fix it. In the U.S. we’ve been very fortunate. Since the 1950’s the economy has made big gains. So much so that the under 50 year olds don’t remember hard times. Yes, certain industries have had some hard times. And some industries have vanished. Parts of the country have seen more trouble than others. But overall the American people have done pretty well over the last 50 or 60 years. And it’s this prosperity that has causes us to become overindulges. We overindulge in everything, and food is at the top of the list.

You know something, I guess I’m one of those who never saw hard times. Some People complain today about how they don’t have the things they want, but if you go back to the big depression when there were no jobs and there was little or no welfare programs and people were living on $20 a week in cold water flats well that’s hard times.

So when I say that overall the American people have done pretty well, I guess what I mean is that there’s not a lot of people skipping meals any more. Now thirty or forty years ago we did ate better than we do today. You ask why? Well today we have more fast food, more highly processed food, and way more restaurants. This is the underlying reason for our overweight problem.
