Re: When did people get so big?? Observations from the grocery store.
There are a lot of nostalgic memories of the past being populated by only slim adults that are mostly based on old photos and movies that are not a very reliable source, imo. I have see plenty of photos taken from not so polished YouTube productions going back over 120 years including my own family and there were lots of overweight people - way more, in my family, than there are now. Many, many very tall people, too. Menfolk from the 1860’s well over 6’ and women from 5’7 and up. There are so many variables. Obese kids, though, not very many.

Obesity is often a consequence of stress...Cortisol and other stress hormones cause a "fight or flight" response which tells the body to store fat and increase appetite...
 Quoting: BRIEF


Yes, cortisol is part of it. Insulin is the other half. It has little to do with calories since if you eat more calories your body will rev up it's metabolism to match it.

Spain probably has much higher quality oils than the US poor can afford or are aware of. Personally my intake of high quality oils makes up a huge proportion of my diet and I am slim.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75319468


I get oil by the gallon jug for a couple dollars. I doubt it's high quality.
 Quoting: TlvmmCpoft


If it’s olive oil and from Spain that qualifies as high quality.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75319468


It's not.

Why would a gallon jug of olive oil cost a couple dollars?

Also, if it did, it would be one of the mixes, olive oil as flavor mixed in with something cheaper.

Look, Spain is the closest thing on this planet to America when it comes to food.

Same size grocery stores.
Same size packaging (Spain's might actually be bigger).
Near identical taste in food.
Lots of land for farming.
Lots of cheap junk food in big bags.
Same TVs.
Same SUVs.

The only major difference is when you read the label, the only ingredients on it are food. Not chemicals. And last time I checked, the EU didn't allow growth hormones.
 Quoting: TlvmmCpoft


Well then I’m sorry you can’t afford unmixed olive oil which is only a few bucks +shipping costs, here.

Also forgot to mention that soybean oil is being fed to livestock, pigs and poultry
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76886332


What is sprayed on crops, what is fed to livestock, the depletion of nutrients from the soils, the torture of the food chain in general, and the horrors involved in food processing are all terrible but nevertheless there are good wholesome oils that there is absolutely no reason to avoid.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75319468


Not sure what you are referring to when you say good wholesome oils, if you mean olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, then yes you are correct but these are not being used by the mass food producer or restaurant. Please look into industrial seed oils and how they are made, these are what the sheeple are getting in huge quantities, soybean oil consumption is up something like 10,000%
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76886332


Yes, those three in addition to sesame, pumpkin seed, macadamia, almond, walnut, Brazil nut, and cashews. Organic and raw that are mostly cold processed is how I do it . I’m just trying to not have the nutritious oils thrown out with the harmful ones here.

Definitely the corn syrup.

I can rarely even find it in other countries, but in the US it's in freaking everything.

I know it spikes my blood sugar levels quicker than any sugar.
 Quoting: TlvmmCpoft


Yes, it is worse than regular sugar and it's cheaper for food companies compared to regular sugar. They save an extra buck at the expense of the health of many Americans.

It's the result of women in the 80s and 90s picking tall or very tall men as their sex partners. The result of tall offspring. All these tall people will have one thing in common - they're zoomers and millenials.

I worked with butcher ( Britain) about a year ago. and they said that the meat from America is riddled with Growth hormone,

designed to accelerate the amount of weight Cattle,Poultry and other livestock put on in a short period



Evidence would agree, the size of the Steak cuts and also Massive Chicken wings totally support this theory


Growth hormone, a dirty little secret that the governments would like to stay secret

This eventually leads to type 2 Diabetes if the diet continues for long enough without changing eating habits.
 Quoting: GLP Effect


Yes, the liver/body will use either fat or sugar for energy. High levels of insulin due to the pancreatic reaction to high blood sugar levels from consumption of sugar and starch.

Not to mention that this stresses the pancreas... since it wasn't 'built' for such dietary conditions. The pancreas becomes exhausted and diabetes is the inevitable result. High glycemic index food punches the pancreas hard.

Further pancreatic stress comes from always eating cooked food which contains no enzymes to help with digestion. Poor pancreas must produce the enzymes instead. It's not 'built' to do so much of that either.

Flour. Flour and water make glue. Glue up your poo. Slow down the digestion, back up the shit and get a big gut. Not just visceral fat, but old poo.

If one reduces the sugars and starches to very small amounts - or occasionally, the liver has no choice but to draw on the body's fat reserves. Not only will you lose the weight (assuming moderate exercise), you will also get rid of some of those toxins and poisons that the body stores in the fat cells too.

It does this because it was natural in our tribal days, to go through lean times. That doesn't happen these days.

Re: When did people get so big?? Observations from the grocery store.
I noticed same thing at Kroger in Columbus, Ohio suburb by my aunt's house we were visiting- there was sooo many people to begin with (on a Saturday too just b4 OSU game started- so that was weird literally minutes b4 game not big fans i guess in that area at least?); but the amount of people bigger then me(i'm 6' and under 200lbs) - women we my size and gigantic width, men were all 6'4" or taller it seemed- my mom and sis were tiny in comparison- both around 5'4/5" i think and skinny! I just got over surgery and need to get back to work soon; couldn't do shit but lay on stomach most my back was carved out literally 3lbs of flesh,fat and skin gone- hurt to move hobbled to bathroom then back to couch to sleep after pills took over and ate - took year and 3 surgeries to recover so got a small belly why i'm not 185 and built like brick shithouse i was b4hand- but I look small compared to everyone- mind you I live in a small town/city most of my life- used to live where aunt did and back in 80s it was just as my small city i live in now- there's just too many damn people! I'd have anxiety living in a metropolis- couldn't function and wouldn't want to...damn! And, whoever says nephilim i can see how they'd think that- everyone so damn huge compared to my blood family(my step family all heifers but my one cousin) that i would think these people might think me a snack and eat me- we don't want a zombie virus or famine(man-made or natural) or we'd be a chicken leg to be gnawed on by these huge humans! And, i don't mean fat ones but the TALL fkers- i nvr saw this but at my college had one event in city nearby and everyone was tall there too- never see that many tall people in my area unless playing basketball!
