Without any fear to sound contradictory, I can say weight gain and obesity can be traced as the root cause or origins of the main health concerns in the modern era of our civilization.
And in fact, obesity in particular is one of the principal causes of avoidable death in the world nowadays. Yes, studies conducted have proven and establish the causes why the world population seems to be gaining weight!
To buttress the above, a recent research has shown, for instance, that the general weight of the population today, is much higher than it was in the 1960s.
Now, you may want to ask… Why? Well, we may need to approach that question by asking another question: what are the factors that have contributed to this turn of events and what are the intervention measures that can be instituted to control it?
Nevertheless, studies have also shown that, though our children still participate in physical exercises, just like the children of yester years, the truth is that they still add weight and in some cases even get obese! Anyway, for the older folks, we can say lack of exercise, among other issues can be cited a reason for weight gain or becoming fat.
That being as it is, obesity and weight gain have been attributed to the kind of foods we eat. In fact, research even shows that we have increased our food intake which regrettably encompasses a higher percentage of sugar a derivative of carbs instead of proteins than what the world population used to ingest about fifty years ago. Also, the amount of fat that we eat has considerably increased.
Now, I want you to get your copy of this book and delve in more to get all the nutitious goodness the the intake of low carb high protein diet can do to your health.
