Why One in 5 Americans is Now Obese
One in five people in the U.S. is now obese, and obesity is the most common contributing factor in the top five killer diseases.
How did this happen?
Since 1977 we have been told that fat in our diet is what makes us fat, and that saturated fat was the worst kind of fat. And since then obesity rates have continuously risen in direct proportion to dietary fat reduction.
At the same time we were told to stop eating saturated fats and to switch to unsaturated, which we now know as dangerous ”trans” fats, we also were told to eat more carbohydrates, mostly made from grains. So the American grain industry had to change dramatically to keep up with the new demand.
Why Other Countries Ban American-Grown Corn and Wheat
The new corn and wheat varieties developed since then do not have the same nutritional content as their ancestral grains, and as the demand increased, the nutritional value declined in favor of producing more corn and wheat.
Today, most grains commercially produced in America are so lacking in nutrients, contaminated with chemicals and/or genetically modified that many other developed countries consider them dangerous and ban them from their food supplies.
How bad would you rate the U.S. agricultural system and practices when even China and Russia won’t buy our corn and wheat?
Carb-Heavy Diet is the Heavy in This Movie
The misguided marketing push away from saturated fats and toward eating more carbohydrates has been so strong and for so long that most doctors now graduate believing a carbohydrate — sugar — is the only fuel our bodies can run on.
The truth is our bodies can use carbohydrate, fat or protein as fuel. The problem: When we eat mostly carbohydrates, as recommended in many dietary guidelines, we store many of these empty calories as fat. And by reducing saturated dietary fats, we reduce our body’s ability to use our own stored fat for energy.
The good news: For most people, reducing carbohydrates and limiting grains in the diet often gives fast and dramatic weight loss and anti-inflammatory results. Within a few days most people’s chronic aches and pains start to lessen and within a few weeks most people’s clothes start getting looser.

Change Diet, Reduce Stress for Healthy Weight Loss
Beyond grains and dairy, the main culprit in stubborn fat is the stress hormone cortisol. Inflammation anywhere in your body triggers cortisol to go to work. Cortisol is an anti-inflammatory hormone produced in your adrenal gland. It regulates all the other hormones that control your metabolism, digestion, immune and nerve systems.
Inflammation in the digestive tract from food sensitivity to grain, dairy or any food that your body does not like may not have obvious digestive symptoms, but keeps cortisol over-active in your body. Also, any little ache or pain you manage with over-the-counter medication contributes to constant cortisol production. Too much cortisol for too long eventually disrupts metabolism.
The main reason diets only produce temporary results is that they fail to address the body’s cortisol imbalance.
