Dr Greger says, “In 2013 2/3 of our nation was over weight and by 2030 about 1/2 our population will be clinically obese!” We are a nation of obese people. Obesity leads to many serious deseases that weigh heavy on our economy. He also says,”The US may have its first generation ever that has a shorter life expectancy than the previous generation. Think about that! When we look at eating vs exercise we see that the US is exercising more than it did years ago but we are consuming many more calories as well. These calories are typically in processed foods, fried foods, salty foods and sugary foods. We are eating less vegetables which is the only food group that can save our health. Read my book or older BLOGs here. Dr Greger also says tat a myth exists about sexual activity burning about 100 to 300 calories. That sounds great but when actually measured it’s more like 21 calories. It turns out to exercise enough to burn off the sodas and fast food we are eating may take hours each day. We don’t have the time. The answer is simply, CHANGE YOUR DIET!
