A new study shows that obese people get less satisfaction from food, according to scientists. Given this, obese people tend to overeat because the taste of food produced less of a pleasurable sensation in their brains.
Therefore, people who are overweight, or obese, have to eat more to feel content. Now, I’m curious…If this country has a weight problem, how many people have this lessened excretion of dopamine? Is it really scientific as to why we’re all overweight, or is it the onslaught of marketing and the fatty, unhealthy food choices?
I absolutely love how all of these fast food chains and restaurant franchises have suddenly taken some concern (or lack thereof) in their customers’ well being…All of sudden, they market “NO TRANS FATS!” and calorie counts, like the people who regularly dine at the establishment really care…The truth is that counting calories and advertising no trans fats is just a marketing gimmick. The calorie count may be low, but how many of those calories are empty? The lack of trans fats is a nice touch, but what about the thousands of grams of saturated fat? It’s all bullshit. Ask any obese person, a chicken breast just isn’t a chicken breast if it isn’t smothered in something slimy and can eat through a paper plate in 30 seconds…but he won’t die of heart disease!! Instead, he’ll die of cancer, diabetes, a heart attack, a stroke, gallbladder disease, or sleep apnea, just to name a few…
My point is: This country has a serious problem concerning obesity (I’ve recently read somewhere that the average woman is a size 14 right now. SIZE 14!!). I see a lot of studies being done, a lot of experiments being conducted, and a lot of information being spewed forth, but nobody is doing anything with it. The government is dragging its heels, parents don’t want to say their children are fat, that might hurt their little feelings And schools are still cutting phys ed class: My son just told me the other day that they only have one day of gym. I looked at him with the usual “Huh?” face, in disbelief…then I felt like a schmuck for being the “uninformed” parent…so much so that I was going to call and ask when this was implemented.
So, whoever the powers that be may be that implements these kinds of studies and plans of action, do it soon so I don’t have to duck out of the way when I’m walking down the sidewalk because an obese family is moving towards me like a fleet of interstate truckers!
