What Causes Obesity?

Weight Loss Quotes

Fat is not a moral problem. It’s an oral problem.~Jane Thomas Noland

Many scientists are debating what causes obesity and its constant rise to world domination. I my opinion the answer is easy: lots and lots of unhealthy food is what causes obesity. We are swamped in a world of tasty junk food that doesn’t give our bodies any essential nutrients. Just lots and lots of calories that we didn’t need in the first place.

Excess consumption of readily available foods is in our nature. We as a species love to eat because a long time ago eating equaled surviving and thriving. Nowadays eating has no special meaning, it is just a way to sedate ourselves from the cruel realities that surround us. The shittier our day is the more we crave some unhealthy fatty food to make us feel better.

Today food is like a drug. A lot better than a psychologist, because it doesn’t judge us, and a lot cheaper. Turning to food for emotional comfort is so easy. Food is always there to listen to our pain and make it go away.

The family unit is also dying. A long time ago eating was a family activity. Sitting around the table each family member would have shared all that happened to him during the day. It was a great way to release emotional pressure and let your family help you. Nowadays we eat alone, ashamed of how much we are gobbling down, with no one to share our pain and happiness.

If a few decades ago you had to move to get stuff done, today it’s all about the push of a few buttons. You can buy anything online, and most of us work in front of a computer or something similar. The lack of movement in the fastest moving century ever is astonishing to me.

If you were wondering what causes obesity, now you know: an unhealthy lifestyle full of unhealthy eating is what causes obesity.
