Here we are again. Talking about obesity. And why it continues to rise in the UK (and the rest of the world). But more specifically in this case, how f*cked up we have become in our proposed solution to it. Irrational cherry picking and outright lies are vomited into our mainstream media every day. The latest installment of the former was last week on BBC 1. Apparently carbs are bad again 😒..

In the 1990s, fat was the culprit. Out of all the food groups wrongly demonized, I guess fat makes the most sense as it contains 9 calories per gram and is thus the most calorie dense macronutrient. However, this was/is still an incredibly naive idea.

In the early 2000s, carbs were the apparent cause of weight gain. You know… those carbs in the from of cakes, biscuits and pastries…. Yeah, the ones which actually contain more calories from fat😑. What about berries? Obviously lower in calories, but they are carbs too… This one is a joke as it can’t even correctly differentiate the foods it wants to demonize. –

In the last few years the blame has shifted to sugar – particularly refined sugar. It is not particularly satiating and is easy to over consume – but consumption is still decided by you. Naturally, it is included in sweet, calorie dense foods – so it’s easy to blame I guess 😑.

All three cases contradict each other. Mainly because most foods contain fat, carbs, protein and some form of sugar (all calorie sources). What’s more – you can only gain fat if you exist in a calorie surplus, regardless of the food source. Sure, consumption of some foods rather than others can make overeating calories a possibility, but not necessarily an eventuality. Instead, we need to look at ourselves and stop blaming everything under the sun. The buck stops with us. We eat too many calories for the amount we move. That’s it. –

We need to be better educated. Start by sacking off anyone who demonizes any food group, along with their false, fear provoking headlines.
