Try a vegetarian diet. Even just a day a week. It can be fun and it will force you learn more about fruit and veggies and how to cook them in yummy ways. And it's healthy! Cows eat all day without getting fat.

Limit your red meat consumption and minimize your consumption of processed meats like bacon, sausages and sandwich meats.

Cons ume at least 3 servings of whole fruit a week especially blueberries, red grapes, apples and pears.

Get adequate sleep and have regular sleep hours (lack of sleep increases insulin resistance).

Manage your stress. Stressful events like divorce, job-loss, or death of a loved one increase diabetes risk sharply.

Ea t a handful of nuts everyday, especially walnuts and almonds

Its not about low fat its about sugar. The low fat but high in sugar diet has been a dismal failure in America.

  

Sugar intake in meant to be used for brain power. If you want a lot of sugar in your diet then you better do things that require you to use your brain power!

Eat more frequent smaller meals a day instead of stuffing yourself with three big meals. This works for me because I cannot stand the feeling of being overstuffed. I have been the same weight for years because of that. Also, you cannot judge totally on weight gain about how fat you are. You have to judge on muscle mass. Weight trainers usually weigh a lot but they are still thin because muscle weighs more than fat. Another good measure to see whether you are gaining bad weight is if your pants size still fits you.

I am convinced that it is the use of corn syrup and other unnatural ingredients in processed food that is responsible. The moment someone comes to America from a place that provided food cooked the old fashioned way they tend to put on a lot of weight. The American food it to full of preservatives and it is made with Corn syrup.

Warren Buffet helped finance Coke's worldwide expansion for the past 20 years, the same time during which this obesity problem manifested. He's now investing in DaVita, builder and operator of kidney dialysis centers.

[quote name='Joshua' time='03.01.2014 15:06']Well lets see.

1. GMO products are causing people to gain weight. As reported by RT news as well.

2. Fast Food and Artifical foods have replaced all Natural foods. Everything we eat is Fake.

3. People are NOT looking to the governments to fix the issue as it is NOT their responsibility. They are wanting the governments to stop supporting corporations that keep doing this.

The food industry does everything to keep the consumer addicted and secure their profits. Casein, a milk protein commonly used in processed foods, also has addictive qualities that lead to overeating

Another huge contributor is "cube farms" and stolen opportunities to move. Without activity, obesity is likely no matter how little one eats.

Hone sty, its the corporations and governments fault. People ate all the same foods back in the 50's-80's
