no excuses anymore
Um, obesity has been known to be largely a mental problem.
yea...unable to put the fork down...
beat me to it
replace electrical power consumption to calorie consumption
It really is that simple. If you don't want to change your life, you won't lose weight. If you do, then it's a fucking cakewalk.
Everywhere I look fat people are being told they are that way because of their genetics
in for news stories about fat people losing their legs from gangrene due to ignoring the spikes and continuing to shovel food into their faces
It's ridiculous. Unless fat people had tons and TONS of sex and a lot more kids than normal people about a generation ago, it's all bs
the way your raised can effect your genetics. the "nurturing" process can affect epi-genome which is what signals genes to turn on/off
Obesity is more than consuming too much calories, it is also not burning enough calories.
Calories eaten - Calories burnt = if positive number, you gain weight. Weight gain is going to be mostly fat unless you lift weights.
Western society focuses too much on eating less. You can literally eat anything you want, and as long as you do the calories burnt part right, you won't gain weight.
Almost true, but I have hypertension, so if I sat down and ate a bag of jerky or a fucking monster thickburger, I think I would go into arrest
EVERYTHING is controlled by the brain.
Sick of seeing that too, just gives fat people an excuse to hide behind.
"Life stage" adaptation is not permanent, it is just that: an adaptation. The same applies to other forms of conditioning for cultural reasons. Not all klansmen's children grow up hating blacks, jews and mexicans.
Yes, but these are all subconscious beliefs that can be changed if you so desire.
so if i believe I won't get cancer all the gene's that regulate cell growth will work properly? SWEET!
If your subconscious believes that you won't get cancer.
No genius. Nurturing is a product of your upbringing. It is more conditioning than a genetic change. It is a reversible phenomenon.
