Weight Loss Quotes

We’re the country that has more food to eat than any other country in the world, and with more diets to keep us from eating it.~Author Unknown

For hundreds of years the biggest threat to our survival was hunger. Starving and dying was the worst possible scenario our ancestors could have dreamed of. Famine would sweep through the countries each time the crops failed. Millions died because of famine.

Today, out modern lifestyle is abundant. Food is everywhere and in an ironical twist it is killing us. It seems that the lack of food and too much food have the same effect on our society: the deaths of millions. Obesity is on the rise all over the world, and the major diseases that kill the majority of us are all diseases that are caused or aggravated by excess fat.

While dying of hunger is a gruesome way to end one’s life, overeating seems not to bother us as much. Many people happily eat unhealthy food each day, shortening their life span considerably. Did you know that the future generations are considered the first ones to have a shorter lifespan than their predecessors? That is some serious food for thought.

The truth is that it isn’t the abundance of food what is killing us. It is the sheer number of chemically filled, addiction creating food. We are all crazy about sugar, being addicted to sugar and the big food companies make sure to add sugar to everything. Every food produced today is specifically created to make you crave even more food. A great way to increase the bottom line of the big food manufacturers.

If you don’t believe me, try stopping from drinking soft drinks. For a real challenge stop eating fast food. You will soon discover just how strong your food addiction is.
