Truth about obesity: how we got here and where we’re going as the powers-that-be continue encouraging unhealthy lifestyles to accelerate depopulation

It was a Saturday morning ritual for Generation X kids to get up at 7 a.m. and watch cartoons for 4-5 hours. The Snorks, The Smurfs, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Galaxy High, Saturday Supercade, Hulk Hogan’s Rock-N-Wrestling…to have that blissful ignorance again. The sound of the American Bandstand theme signaled the end of cartoons for the day.

Wedged between all those cartoons were various public service announcements (PSAs). One of this blogger’s favorites was “Louie the Lightning Bug.”

Granted there is implicit bias. But this blogger has always believed the 1980s was the closest decade the United States ever came to its theoretical “land of the free,” “content of character” nation. A lot of that had to do with the way kids were raised. Parents, teachers and yes, mainstream media, encouraged kids to be healthy, active, productive people.

The “Exercise Your Choppers” PSAs encouraged both exercise and eating a lot of fruits and vegetables.

 

The “Milk It Does The Body Good” campaigns literally trained this blogger to love milk.

 

 

Instead of eating sundaes, we ate “saturdaes.”

 

 

Kids will always eat sugary snacks and cereals because, they are kids. They love sweets. But kids rode their bikes or walked everywhere, and played outside in their free time in the 1980s. They also had physical education (“PE”) class five times per week from kindergarten to graduation. Kids burned a lot of calories from their recreational activities in the 1980s.

Only 5% of U.S. teenagers were overweight or obese in 1980, according to the Centers for Disease Control. By the year 2000, 15% of teens were overweight. Today, nearly 20% of Americans ages 19 and under are not just overweight, but obese.

Part of that is because, for whatever reason, U.S. public schools phased out PE classes. By 1991, only 42% of U.S. teenagers had daily PE class. That dropped to only 25% by 1995. Today, only about 4% of U.S. schools have daily PE class, with 22% of schools having no PE at all. That’s not the worst part.

The average main course at fast food restaurants in 1986 was 326 calories, versus 416 calories in 2016 – a 28% increase. Fast food desserts averaged 234 calories in 1986 versus 420 calories in 2016 – a staggering 80% increase. Nearly 37% of American kids eat fast food on a given day. But the groundwork for the American obesity epidemic was surreptitiously laid in the 1980s.

Romper Room, Reagan and de-regulation

Television time was family time in 1960s to 1980s America.

The post-World War II era (after 1945) was very similar to the turn of the 21st century as it relates to technology. Only 8,000 American homes had a television in 1946, according to Elon University. That number skyrocketed to nearly 46 million homes by 1960. Likewise, only about 7 million U.S. households had internet access in the year 2000. Fourteen years later, in 2014, almost 98 million U.S. households had internet. Both technologies fundamentally changed humanity.

Television was “wholesome,” if you will, from the 1950s through the 1980s. It was, for the most part, used for good. Family-oriented programs like The Donna Reed Show and Leave It To Beaver dominated early. The Cosby Show, Family Ties, etc. continued the trend through the 1980s, until it ended thereafter. But advertisers knew from the start of mass television uptake that children were the gateways to the parents’ pocketbooks.

A 2015 YouGov Omnibus Parents Survey found that more than 88% of parents said their children influence or flat-out dictate all household food purchases. The same survey found that children dictate apparel shopping in 70% of households, and dictate technology choices in 58% of homes. YouGov refers to this phenomenon as “pester power.” Nomenclature notwithstanding, marketing executives recognized that television was the ultimate product dissemination machine by the mid-1950.

The most popular daytime soap operas started in the 1950s – Guiding Light (1952-2009), As The World Turns (1956-2010), etc. The etymology of the term “soap opera” comes from the fact that women were at home cleaning, washing clothes, etc. while watching said shows. Further, nearly all soap operas in the 1950s and 1960s were sponsored by soap products that women frequently bought.

Said products were also strategically-placed in the actual shows (i.e. “product placement”). If this marketing strategy worked on adult women, it would surely work on kids.

The long-running, super popular children’s television show Romper Room (1953 to 1994) was the first target of marketers. The waiting lists for kids to appear on the show were so long that many kids would have been adults by the time they got on. The vast majority of kids simply had to hope to hear their names read in the magic mirror.

“Romper, bomper, stomper boo. Tell me, tell me, tell me, do. Magic Mirror…” That rhyme was recited at the end of every show while the host looked into a handheld frame (mirror) and read kids’ names who mailed them in.

Advertisers subtly starting placing (advertising) certain toys in Romper Room broadcasts in the early to mid 1960s. That led to the founding of Action for Children’s Television (ACT), a Massachusetts-based nonprofit that aimed to eliminate deceptive and otherwise advertising and violence in children’s television. The group lobbied the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to implement guidelines, such as no ads at all in children’s shows.

ACT was quite successful through the 1970s until Ronald Reagan became President of the United States. His FCC deregulated almost everything on television, particularly anything related to advertising. Reagan’s actions changed children’s television forever. This blogger’s favorite television show in the 1980s was The Transformers, which aired from 1984 to 1987. Those shows, along with G.I. Joe, Jem and the Holograms, Voltron, GoBots, My Little Pony, etc. were essentially 30-minute advertisements for the corresponding toys.

The toys, however, weren’t the problem. It was the massive surge in junk food ads. Marketing executives knew this from the beginning. But a 2004 report by the American Psychological Association confirmed, among other things, that kids “do not consistently distinguish program from commercial content, even when program/commercial separation devices (‘GoBots will be back after these messages’) are used.”

This blogger’s favorite childhood cereal was Smurfberry Crunch, probably because the commercials were an extension of the cartoons.

Every sugary cereal had some sort of animated spokesperson – Toucan Sam (Froot Loops), Tony the Tiger (Frosted Flakes), the Trix Rabbix, etc.

HR 3966, aka the Children’s Television Act, passed the House of Representatives by a 328-78 vote on June 8, 1988. The bill not only would have limited advertising to 10.5 minutes per hour in children’s shows on weekends (and 12 minutes on weekdays), but also would have forced more educational programming. The bill, in theory, would have made cartoons like The Transformers illegal.

The Senate approved the bill unanimously. But this was the era of Reaganomics and new media. The president vetoed the Fairness in Broadcasting Act in 1987 despite the bill overwhelmingly passing both houses of Congress. And in one of his last acts as President, Reagan vetoed the Children’s Television Act.

The bill was re-introduced the following year and, again, overwhelmingly passed in Congress. President George H.W. Bush didn’t veto it. But he didn’t sign it either within the Constitutionally-mandated 10-day period. So the bill became law by default. Its effects were mixed.

Regardless, enforcement of the new law by the Bush I FCC was lax at best. When Bill Clinton became President, enforcement was more pronounced. “Saturday Morning Cartoons,” for all intents and purposes, ended in 1997. NBC ended the phenomenon in 1992 with its Teen NBC (TNBC) Saturday morning blocks.

Thus by the late 1990s, physical education was gone, far fewer households had both parents in them, and the internet/world wide web was thrust upon the world, and circumvented all children’s programming regulations. A few years later, everyone had internet on little square, handheld devices, which led to more sedentary lifestyles.

Where did it all go wrong?

It’s important to understand the difference between overweight and obese. There’s no exact science and definitions vary based on body type.

Body mass index (BMI) is the most important measure of overall health. BMI = body weight divided by height squared times 703. This blogger is 5’9 tall and weighs 170 pounds (77 kg). So his BMI is 25.1. (BMI Calculator here).

The numbers alone say this blogger is 1.5 pounds overweight. But then you factor in body fat percentage, muscle mass, age, etc. and that’s your true overall health grade. That all said, the further above the magic 25 BMI you are, the more at risk you are for practically all human ailments (kind of like the mRNA injections exacerbate all human ailments). Once you hit obesity range, you’re cutting years off your life.

Only 13% of the total American population was obese through the 1970s. It no coincidence that high fructose corn syrup became a staple ingredient in processed foods in the 1970s. By 1997, nearly 19% of American adults were obese. It jumped to nearly 25% by 2004.

Today 42% of American adults are obese or morbidly obese. Mississippi and West Virginia are consistently the two fattest states in the U.S. American children ages 10 to 17 are obese at a 17% rate. Forty years earlier, in 1983, only 5% of American kids were obese. And sadly the bad habits in childhood continue into adulthood, which is another part of the problem today.

RELATED: Massive meta-analysis finds definitive link between autism spectrum disorder and gender dysphoria; “vaccines” were the catalysts that precipitated it all (December 29, 2022)

 

The average American spends over five hours per day staring at smartphones. Obesity and screen time numbers have positively correlated since the turn of the millennium. The first Androids and iPhones were introduced in 2007-08. Obesity rates went from 33.7% in 2008 to today’s 42%-plus.

Meanwhile fast food restaurants spent $5 billion on advertising in 2019. But again, this all started in Reagan’s 80s. The general food advertising industry (healthy or otherwise) went from spending $2.3 billion in 1980 to $7.6 billion in 1990. And why not? It works.

A 2023 study by University of Michigan researchers found that junk food ads trigger positive emotions, whereas ads for salads and healthy foods do not. A 2016 study in the journal Obesity Review found that junk food consumption increases in children within 30 minutes of exposure to the advertisements.

Black women are, by far, the most obese individual demographic in the U.S. And a lot of that has to do with junk food advertisers constantly and specifically targeting Black households and youth. Black Americans are the least likely demographic by race to receive mRNA and viral vector DNA injections in the U.S. They are also the least likely to trust American medicine overall.

Thus, the powers-that-be (“TPTB”) kill Black Americans with obesity and junk food since said demographic doesn’t trust the paid, professional killers (doctors). Junk food ads are not just standard commercials either.

Singer Lizzo is literally a 24/7 obesity advertisement for Black girls. We talk about #ABV a lot on The COVID Blog®. Mainstream media and Lizzo fans come up with every excuse in the book as to why she weighs 400 pounds. A recent Allure magazine article reasoned that you can be fat and fit at the same time.

Lizzo claims to be vegan and eats very little, but is still fat. That’s simply not believable when social media posts like the following are published.

Body positivity and self-deletion via obesity

The term “body positivity” did not exist in the English language prior to 2012.

There have been pockets of fat acceptance movements since the late 1960s. Time magazine first wrote about a “fat acceptance movement” in 2009. Body positivity has since become a featured self-deletion method in the overall depopulation agenda.

Today it is normal and cool for men to wear women’s clothing and makeup, for women’s rights organization to advocate for men in their spaces, and for people to be obese and unhealthy. A man can make quick money in 2023 by wearing makeup and dresses. Women, on the other hand, can make a buck by promoting and/or whining about their obesity.

Granted fat liberals and sheep don’t care about indisputable facts (e.g. penis = male). But the only journalistic action this blogger has left to take in this situation is to show the very graphic, gross and informative 2016 BBC3 documentary Obesity: The Post Mortem.

Mortician Carla Valentine and histopathologist Dr. Michael Osborne performed a full autopsy on a deceased obese woman who donated her body to science. Granted all autopsies are gory and bloody. But this woman literally died because her vital organs were suffocated by fat. And when you see them cut through all that fat (fast forward to the six-minute mark)…

WARNING: THE VIDEO IS VERY GRAPHIC. DO NOT WATCH WHILE EATING.

Obesity doesn’t kill you. The resulting heart disease, kidney disease, lung disease, vascular issues, etc. kill you.

We’ve all heard the term “big-boned.” It’s sort of a softer way to say someone is overweight. But there is no such literal or medical thing as being big-boned. The human skeleton is as tall as you are. But it does not expand in girth as you gain weight. A 400-pound human being and their skeleton look like this.

That’s why you see 40-year-old fat people riding electronic carts at Walmart. Weighing 400 pounds is the functional equivalent on human knees and feet as would be placing the tires of a Volkswagen Beetle onto an 18-wheel big rig. You’re not going to get very far. It’s the same thing related to the human heart – a Honda Accord engine cannot move a bus very far before overheating and failing.

TPTB and their mainstream media will kill you by any means necessary. Obesity is the method du jour now that the vaccine genocide is already in full effect.

Times change as fast as the agendas

Believe it or not, an ABC News report from 2010 acknowledged the obesity epidemic in the U.S., and also proposed solutions. Just nine years later, the same network was promoting obese women in bathing suits and shamelessly comparing obesity to real disabilities. Victoria’s Secret used to be the thin, model-looking women’s brand, while Lane Bryant catered to bigger women who were also pretty in their own ways. But social pressure forced the previous to start marketing campaigns as follows.

That’s not to say the foregoing woman is not attractive in her own way; and she’s possibly a sweet woman. But that’s simply not Victoria Secret’s brand, and never has been. And Cosmopolitan magazine…

The CDC admitted in early 2021 that 80% of so-called COVID-19 hospitalizations from March 2020 to December 2020 were obese people. So what did they do in response? Shut down all gyms, while McDonald’s, Taco Bell, etc. were deemed “essential businesses” and stayed open. The National Health & Fitness Alliance (NHFA) reported in August 2021 that 22% of U.S. gyms shut down permanently.

Obesity is what it is – unhealthy, somewhat funny, and a self-destructive, deliberate lifestyle. Granted in very rare situations, some people are born predisposed to obesity. But even liberal Harvard University admitted that healthy lifestyles counteract any and all alleged predispositions to obesity.

Generation X kids were guinea pigs for advertisers. We’d eat Frankenberry cereal for breakfast and had a few Twinkies for an afternoon snack because the commercials were entertaining. But we also had two parents in the home, daily PE class, and rode our bikes everywhere. Most of the foregoing is not reality for kids in 2023. You had to try pretty hard to get fat as as child in the 1980s. That was also a time when everyone wasn’t all super-sensitive.

Comedian Wil Shriner had one of the best Hollywood Squares zingers of the 1980s.

And of course we had the rap group The Fat Boys. They acknowledged they were fat and didn’t run from it. That made them genuinely likeable and popular. Note the following is from the classic 1985 movie Krush Groove.

Note that Darren “Big Buff” Robinson (the one with glasses) died at age 28 on December 10, 1995 at 5’4 and weighing 633 pounds. Mark Anthony Morales, aka Prince Markie Dee (the light-skinned one), died in 2021 at age 52 of heart failure (and maybe the mRNA injections). Damon “Kool Rock-Ski” Wimbley is the only surviving member because he lost weight, which also caused the group to break up because he wasn’t fat anymore. When Buff died in 1995, Kool Rock-Ski weighed 190 pounds.

But the 21st century is the age of fat promotion, which is an affront to those who take their health serious. It has also led to more resentment. A 2019 Harvard study found that implicit weight bias among Americans increased by 40% between 2004 and 2010. Obese people are paid about 9% less than normal-sized people. Michigan is the only state in the Union that outlaws “weight discrimination.” New York City passed a law last month outlawing weight discrimination.

As most of you know, this blogger has done two things his entire adult life and remains passionate about both – journalism and personal training. The latter cannot be done anymore, since 2021, because of the risk of clients collapsing and dying during routine exercises. But to this day, early clients from the late 1990s and the 2000s still send Christmas cards and other gifts. The look on people faces, when they cry after six months of hardcore training and changing their eating habits, and lose a noticeable 40 pounds – it’s priceless.

Obesity is caused by eating far more calories than you burn. It’s as simple as that. There is no secret to weight loss. The typical 40-50 year-old man burns about 1,800 calories per day just from being alive (breathing, heart beating, etc. – aka Basal Metabolic Rate). Thus if 1,800 calories are consumed everyday, you won’t gain weight. If 1,300 calories are consumed per day, you’ll lose a pound-plus every week. If 2,000 calories are consumed per day, and you burn 600 in the gym everyday, you’ll still lose a pound or more per week. It’s that simple. Fancy fad diets are not needed.

This “body positivity movement” is almost as evil as the vaccine genocide. TPTB are literally encouraging people to get fat, sick and die. This blogger wants to be clear – all big women are not ugly women. And the fact remains there is a subgroup of men who like big women. Fat dudes, on the flip side, know that they will be virgins (or homosexuals) forever unless they lose weight or somehow come into a lot of money.

Regardless, obesity is not sexy, not cool, and not healthy. Period. There are simply too many things happening right now (vaccines, 5G, chemtrails, etc.) that are already accelerating depopulation. You owe it to yourselves and your families to get healthy in 2023. All you have to lose is…weight.

Stay vigilant and protect your friends and loved ones.

Brian you are a world-class man. Yes indeed you are. One of the very few who tells it like it is & will still do so.

I am now 34 & don’t exercise beyond skateboarding but recently did a powerlifting spotting gig. I gained respect for even anaerobics. Everything you say about health is everything rings true.

You do a wonderful job spreading awareness & pointing out the obvious but still very relevant facts in a unique way. I plan on following you for years to come. I plan on donating when I finally have a job again.

Don’t stop. The world needs you.

Here in England, I now refer to England as Fatland. UK’s obesity crisis is way out of control too. It is in fact, the fattest nation in Europe. Thin people here are in the minority. But England in particular has the largest white under class minority in Europe too. England’s obesity crisis is associated with the council estate ‘chav’ class of people. That is fat and foul-mouthed Brits living in rough areas, who dress in tracksuits, are anti social, and live on rubbish food. Foreigners have this totally unrealistic picture of the Brits. They imagine them as being cultured, well-spoken, thin, who sit around in tea rooms drinking ‘British Raj’ tea with a slice of Victoria sponge cake. Who play cricket and are of the ‘old boys’ club. Nothing could be further from the truth. The majority of Brits are council estate drunks and VERY fat. CHAV usually means Council House And Violent. Most cities, towns, and villages are no-go areas thanks to fat chav anti social problems. How did the Brits get here, I don’t know and I don’t care. All I know is I sick and tired of seeing fat Brits everywhere stuffing their face with junk food.

I’ll have to look this up – what is a Council House? My ancestry is partly from the British Isles and partly from the Iberian peninsula. People in Northern Europe do not hold a high opinion of the Southerners – they refer to the PIGS, Portugal, Italy, Greece, and Spain you know, so your view of some of the Northerners is interesting to me.

It is amazing how things change so quickly – about 15 years ago my aunt visited us in Canada from England and said – people here are so fat – lol. It is certainly very true now – I notice it especially among young women – very sad – most people don’t seem to get thinner, just heavier, unfortunately.

Agree with everything in the article. Like to add GMO veggies we eat now compared to vegetables in the 1980s have far less nutritional value. Use of seed oils increased while use of butter decreased for cooking. Seed oils have a much higher Omega 6 content compared to butter. Eating eggs were attacked around the early 1990s and lets not forget about PFAS chemicals and micro plastics in the our food and water. Over prescriptions of depression and ADHD meds don’t help either.

Very interesting obesity autopsy video! Interesting how the male doctor sees this every day, yet seemingly does not realize he is even bigger than the woman. As for all-you-can-eat buffets, it made me think about how people on cruises are so impatient in food lines when they’re eating 5+ meals a day. Vegan women are often overweight, because they satisfy their constant hunger with sugar and starchy carbs.

I’ve been vegetarian / vegan for over a decade. I avoid sugar. I feel fine. Eating the dead flesh of animals is unnecessary. You can eat delicious plant proteins with full amino acid profiles (without soy or gluten if you prefer). I used to be addicted to meat but now crave/love what I eat. What makes you think God approves of eating the dead flesh of animals if they have Consciousness in them and are capable of feeling? UFC fighter Rashad Evans said in an interview he became vegan after eating Psychedelics.

Went to visit my trusted, respectful, midwife for a prenatal checkup around lunchtime today. A group of employees from the OBGYN office next door were outside eating lunch. 5-6 medical professionals (women) and all would fit the overweight or obese categories pictured above. I try to be a good Christian and not to judge others but couldn’t help but notice how unhealthy they all appeared. Appreciated the synchronicity of this article when I got home.

Longtime reader, first-time commenter. I regularly check for updates and worry when you have your occasional lapse in regular posts. Please keep up the unparalleled work, Brian! I love and appreciate your writing style and content more than I can express.

Thanks Brian, this is a great article. I’m a woman that’s a little underweight. I have to say that I haven’t ever been attracted to an obese man. People need to care more about their bodies. We only have one in our lifetime. We need to do the best we can with what God gave us. That was a scary picture showing how small the skeleton is compared to a 400 pound person. I remember years ago companies didn’t want to hire obese people because of insurance reasons. Things have really changed. Our government is just downright insane.

But WHO is attracted by an obese men? That equal being a caregiver, taking poate of work extra and be with someone that consume more in food/Medicine is not that productive and a lazy one that doesn’t care about himself.

if a person doesn’t care about him/herself, how would be in a relation? He wont care about you either! Not able to do lots of nice activities and sports. What to do with an obese one????

also of obosity is because depression/bad inbalance or diseases – heal the drama or whatever Why should a healthy women goninto a relation with somebody with issues? The only time this happens is if he has lots of money and finds someone that settle for that. A weak woman as a strong one will provide for herself better that be with somebody obese as they smell bad even from the distance and other problems

When I go to the mall I cringe when I pass the Victoria’s Secret store. Images of sexy models have been replaced with porky, homely women. This is a reflection of the buying public that Victoria’s Secret wishes to attract into their stores. Buyers can no longer identify with the sexy models of days gone by, but they can easily identify with the porkettes in the new pictures. The money the store seeks is now in the purses of porky, homely women who want acceptance as they are.

Sorry, but VS products will not make the basically unattractive more attractive.

When I’ve traveled to Asian countries sometimes I see whites who could be Americans, Europeans, Australians or New Zealanders. Often I can determine their nationality before I hear them speak. The obese ones, waddling along, are always Americans.

A sister-in-law became beyond huge after having two children. She’s pretty much a nutcase who admits she’s addicted to food to deal with life’s stresses. (At night she’ll get out of bed, go downstairs and down an entire loaf of bread in one sitting.)Her mother was an alcoholic, but she uses food instead of alcohol and was, for a while, going to Overeaters Anonymous meetings. Both she and her husband (one of my brothers) are vax zealots and (gee, who could have seen this coming?) she came down with cancer after getting fully vaxxed up. I haven’t heard anything about her status for a while but I’m sure she and her husband will NEVER associate her cancer with the vax.

I’ve spent a lot of time in Asia, yes there are fat foreigners but in East Asia kids are getting fat because of Western junk food and in South Asia fat is a sign of wealth, like making your skin pale (not because Europeans are white but it means you don’t work outdoors and so have wealth).

Outstanding as usual – it is impossible for a vegan to be morbidly obese (100% overweight, double what someone should weigh). I still recall a friend of mine telling me this story: a lady friend of his wife’s told her she stopped eating beef (the only dietary change) and lost 22 lbs.

Can a began be obese or overweight from eating too many carbs, for example root vegetables as potatoes, carrots, partsnips, and beets? I think so.

Obesity = inflammation! Control the inflammation & you cure the obesity along with all the made up for profit diagnoses ending in ITIS which means inflammation. The corrupt medical field will never tell you that. As a matter of fact they will push Big pHARMa poison on your already inflamed body adding more inflammation to it creating one big sick for profit vicious cycle.

You are a bit younger than I am, though we are Gen-Xers. Born in 1966, I got the “OG” 1969 Scooby Doo series. Others were Grape Ape, Hong Kong Phooey, Superfriends (remembering Wendy, Marvin & Wonderdog, before the Wonder Twins showed up), the old Looney Toons, of course…Sesame Street, Electric Company, Zoom…I remember Romper Room.

And, there were all of the Schoolhouse Rock videos that I loved and the 1974 introduction of Doctor Who’s Tom Baker. PBS finally got the BBC series imported and the Battle of the Planets cartoon. I don’t remember Louie. That must have been past my time.I loved the 80s. I was 13/14 in 1980 and graduated in “1984.” The Breakfast Club is my graduating class. I identified with all of those characters, particularly Alison.

I had no idea that PE had been taken out of schools. In Middle school, we had to change clothes and wear this goofy jumpsuit. I could count on one hand how many heavy-set kids there were…none were obese.Fast food was something I knew nothing about until lunch break in high school…senior year. I do recall going thru McDonald’s drive-thru as a kid, with my parents (sitting in my mom’s lap) but, that was because my dad was chatting up the local cop working there. My dad was P&P and all the local cops knew him. My mom cooked. Both of my grandmothers cooked. I had fresh farm produce at my maternal grandmothers’.Count Chocula & Cap’n Crunch.Besides food, another thing that will balloon up your weight is birth control pills. I was on them for seven years and my weight went from 115lbs to 200lbs (I’m 5′ 9″, too). Those pills will also send you into a nightmare of severe depression.Also, too…much of our junk food from the 70s/80s were different from the garbage junk food of today. I still remember seeing “beef tallow” as an ingredient in snack foods.

McDonald’s fries were originally deep fried in tallow, then air dried. It was “fast food” but, it wasn’t loaded with toxic GMO soybean oils and/or the toxic Canadian gear oil, GMO canola. The worst thing I witnessed was the “butter is bad” movement to bring in margarine. I watched my grandmothers develop heart disease and both wound up with open-heart surgery. My grandfathers died of strokes, one of them at 61.By the way…thanks for all you do!

Modeling has always been about perfection. It is for exemplary woman in the West. This is another aspect of decay. Next we will have a tranny Miss America. Cosmopolitan Magazine has always been degenerate. Always about sex. Cancel all subscriptions to women’s magazines.

They don’t want procreation anymore.

They want the old society replaced by freaks. All part and parcel of the communist agenda.

It’s the demoralization process. First, they have to demoralize you, coerced “vaccines” was only the start before they kill you. The tranny thing has been brought to you by the Covid people and amplified. They want this. And it doesn’t matter matter how unprofitable, they are on another level for control for society change. This is new, and vicious, really just more control over you and your children. Even the church is buying it. A Methodist church in NYC has a tranny waltzing down the aisle to everyone’s applause, and all were fully masked. Why didn’t they just hire a stripper? At least she would have been hetero. They want the old guard dead who doesn’t use pronouns, they hate traditional women and children. Don’t lose weight, just buy and wear a mask. Consumerism exemplary!

Miss Nevada USA was a transgender in 2021. I think it was a slap in the face to all females, imho. Same with female sports – transgender women (men in reality) should NOT be allowed to participate in female sports, PERIOD.

They want to erase women. Johns Hopkins is already referring us to, “non-men”. And where is Gloria Steinem, the National Organization of Women? Me too! movement? It’s a false reality that they try to make you accept while they steal your sports scholarships and endorsements, even modeling assignments, print or runway. There is money involved in all of this. They are so delusional, they fake periods, and the monthly cramps that comes with it. I’ve seen their vids, they are disgusting. They are that far gone! Fake talking about periods when they have no uterus! They are not based in reality, clearly. And Biden hosted a White House party for them.

They hate us, because they will never be us, and that’s what liberal women cannot understand. They are only only on-board, because they are aging and want to stay “relevant.” No one will accept this, “New World” pronoun ideology. Don’t let them take your Womanhood away from you.

“They want to erase women.”

Well, let’s see, y’all got the vote ~1920, and the first thing you voted for was to make BEER illegal.

Women are ~52% of the population, and they’re getting everything they deserve.

Romper Room! OMG! Brings me back to childhood, didn’t realize the ulterior motive behind the show. There was another show from the 60’s called, “H.R. Puff-n-Stuff” that I remember watching as a very young child. It was beyond Bizarre! I watched a few clips on YouTube and realized that the creators of this show must have been higher than the moon! Witchcraft maybe? Drugs? A combination? Just so inappropriate for very young, impressionable minds.

My mother pushed for us to go outside and play, always! It was the mantra for 70’s and 80’s kids. We lived on a ranch in the Rockies and there were so many things to do and explore. Television and computers/games/gaming were very low on the list of things we did as children. In tandem with being active as children, the other ability we kids worked on was socialization skills through playing with others. Kids today are buried in their telephonic devices and computer screens. They are losing their ability to communicate, understand and interact with other humans. I think we are devolving as humans.

Obesity. We’ve normalized this very dangerous condition, haven’t we? People can embrace this medical condition all they want – the outcome will always be the same. Shorter life span. Diabetes. Muscle/Skeletal problems. High Cholesterol. Higher risk for strokes and heart attacks. Fatty Liver. Low self-esteem (for many). Respiratory ailments. Sleep Apnea. And a whole host of other problems that overweight/obese patients can bypass if they lost the weight. This is modern-day America though; most Americans won’t take a moment or two and reflect on their own behavior. They can’t and they won’t. Most Americans have been groomed and indoctrinated to “play the victim”. They’ve been told over and over that nothing is their fault. They’ve been told that being overweight/obese is beautiful. They’ve been told to be their “authentic self”! Over and over again, our youth have been told that they are the victim, that the norms of society need to be changed to suit their needs. And so, it is with the physical condition of Americans today. The elitist cabal must normalize certain undesirable characteristics (from back in the day such as obesity) to mask the insidious agenda to change our food supply (GMO’s for example) and Big Pharma. The deleterious effects from the changes in just these two examples (food supply and big pharma) has caused numerous problems that will continue as part of the depopulation agenda.

I fear common sense is dead in this nation. Save for websites such as this, the overwhelming majority can’t even discern when a condition is harmful to them. And many become enraged when the problem (such as obesity) is pointed out. Our nation’s population has made it too easy for the powers that be to depopulate our country. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.

About 10 years ago I sat down in a meeting with a client, he just arrived from Russia a few months earlier with his family. He was a brilliant developer and Quant. He went to 6 Flags over the weekend, he could not believe what he saw. He asked me is that where Americans go to get fat, or where fat Americans go to get fatter. Most of my conversation with him from that point on were about where to get healthy food.

Someone who moved here from Italy several years ago told me how horribly tasteless US food is. And I agree. When I was a kid in the 50’s and 60’s most foods had TASTE. Fruits and Veggies were delicious. Most of them taste like cardboard now. Even a lot of the organic ones. (And my husband and I buy as organic as we can afford with food prices still skyrocketing weekly.) The minerals in the soil and the topsoil are gone, depleted by decades of chemical farming. We are trying out a few organic crops in grow bags now and will see how it goes but in AZ any kind of gardening is tough. Lots of work but we are trying. And this is on top of having an indoor hydroponic tower garden for growing some leafy herbs and greens since the beginning of Covid. The world has gone to hell in a handbasket. Thanks, Brian, for once again telling it like it is! I am not sure many of the post 60’s through 80’s generations even knows what a real vegetable is. And then there is the promotion of the fake cultured processed garbage known as fake meats and more. Good God!

This is modern society sickness, people are looking for easy options, ready meal and cheap. We have to learn to do daily living necessities our self’s, teach to our kids. Eat less, think right, move for life and be creative, what evere we need for living should be meaning full not comfort and rubbish. If people opens their body, mind and spirit for outer sources then this is what other’s will do for their own comfort, don’t you think people? People must question, must know how to say no and must live life for purpose, Man without a purpose can be anything but a man.

I’ve read that the childhood vaccine schedule contributes to obesity by screwing up a person’s thyroid. If you look at the timelines, since 1986 when the drug pushers were granted indemnity for vaccine injuries, and the vaccine schedule exploded, compared to the explosion in obesity, there’s a correlation plainly evident. Gee whiz, I wonder when the FDA/CDC and/or Big Academia will do a study on that?

The obesity that we see rampant today would be considered otherworldly by people living in the 1900s. Look up “Chauncey Morlan.” He was about 474 lbs, and he worked for a circus sideshow around that time. Nowadays, in the 21st Century, we have “My 600-Lb. Life” and “1000-Lb. Sisters.”

Blue light from smartphones has messed up our bodies’ clock and the natural rhythm of tissues repairing themselves. Worse, it interacts with our fat cells. We’re not getting any deep sleep anymore — how can we possibly be in shape?…

Outstanding article and I agree with many comments here about taking personal responsibility for your own health.

It requires diligent planning, determination and commitment to cook healthier meals from scratch and make time to exercise. I put my A into G and stopped spending so much time glued to the screen (work and personal). It is all about balance.

My key observation is that BMI is not the best method to calculate obesity. There are flaws with that method of calculation. Doctors have admitted that the BMI index is not the best measure. If any doctors read this comment, I’d be interested in their views.

I’d like to thank Brian for giving me the motivation, through his articles, to get to gym and shed the kgs. It’s a fabulous feeling when people notice the results of the hard work. Besides, I want to avoid the so-called health system and quacks (with apologies to the remaining few good doctors out there).

It’s simple really. The elites were laying in wait for the technology to catch up with the agenda. Now that is has it’s time for the big cull. Fake vaccines, horrible food, inactivity, promotion of obesity, abortion and drug use not to mention the tranny weirdness are all designed to make you die off. AI and robots are here, they don’t need you anymore. Human life means nothing to psychopaths.

The ‘big lie’ is that people should eat low-fat diets, but sugar is okay. In fact the complete opposite is true! A good human diet is rich in healthy fats. Whereas a cola drink is bug food.

I have heard that there are enormous, huge people who consume 3k, 4k, even 5k calories per day, who suffer from malnutrition. It’s true! Because what they eat is such garbage.

There is an eight-hour window within which I will eat food. Then no food for sixteen hours (which of course includes sleep). And a minimum of three hours without food, before bedtime.

A good evening tip is vitamin B before bedtime. Supposedly calms the brain and mellows you out. I supplement B1 (this is Thiamine) but apparently Nutritional Yeast (unfortified) is the good stuff.

Just stop eating sugar! It is man-made, y’know. Does not exist in nature. Manufactured by humans in a factory.

I’ve struggled with weight my entire life and my experience has been because I’ve eaten too little. Basically, on diets my entire life, which has caused a lot of stress on my adrenals.

So, if what Lizzo says about how much she eats is true, it could be that she’s not eating enough. Or, even though she’s vegan, she can pack on the calories with pastas and sauces. Let’s not forget what folks may choose to drink. High calorie drinks like soda, alcohol, etc offer only empty calories and no nutritional value.
