We had a doctor come to one of our TOPS meetings and he spoke of the food industry basically tricking us. They want to make money so how do they do that? They add salt, sugar, and fats to foods that will encourage our body & mind to want more so we end up eating more and more. Thus, the obesity problem is here and I don't think it will ever change. It's up to us to choose not to eat these processed foods arnd to eat ALL natual foods.

I hope this stuff has been updated since that first came out, there were some falsehoods stated as fact in there, glossed over by many.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

I came across a documentary on Netflix about dieting called "Hungry for Change". It's about the food industry, specifically foods geared toward people trying to lose weight and how that industry markets for their bottom line, not for your best interests. It's very informative and really interesting. I think not only should all dieters watch this, but all consumers! I have no special interest or ulterior motive in promoting this documentary or Netflix, I just thought it was really good and thought you guys might like it, too! I would definitely recommend it.
