Obesity: What you can do

Why is obesity prevalent now compared to 100 or 1,000 years ago? And why is it also prevalent in Western developed nations but not less developed ones?

The answer to these questions is wonderfully short and simple. Where obesity is prevalent two things have changed and completely disrupted the normal balancing act that the pre-existing cultures and lifestyles depended on.

Humans have been around long enough for the trends to be pretty clear. There have always been big people but only recently have so many been big. The reasons must therefore be recent. The question is which changes matter and which don’t. I feel we only focus on half the puzzle at best. Unfortunately this exacerbates the problem instead of improving it.
