The Coming Diabetes Dilemma?

If a surgeon were to operate on you, would they see visceral fat wrapping your internal organs?

For North Americans, at least one surgeon who has operated on foreign and North American soldiers in the battlefield thinks so:

His experience and frightening conclusion mirrors what was reported in this news report:

I attribute this trend to:

- eating too much sugar
- eating too much wheat
- eating too much (over sized portions)
- exercising too little
- exercise which lacks intensity
- exercising the wrong way
- addiction to Nintendo, Xbox, Wii
- addiction to the computer
- addiction to convenience
- addiction to cellphones
- addiction to social media

In a society drunk on consumerism where things don't last and are thrown away and "upgraded" when new ones appear, how are people expected to bond to things?  And if people don't bond to things, how will they bond to people?  The net effect is a culture that treats people like things which are discarded or replaced by "upgraded" labor at lower costs when no longer needed.

To reverse this:

- learn to buy and cook whole foods
- move more and eat less
- exercise more.  See my other posts on exercise for ideas
- eliminate sugar and wheat for weight loss

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”
