Fat Fiction Fat, lies and measuring tape

Do you not think it's well... a bit odd? The fact that the world has suddenly grown fat in a single generation? Since the explosion of gyms, low-fat foods, calorie counting and government healthy eating advice, 1 in 4 people in Britain are obese, and 2 in 3 are overweight. What's going wrong?

It's all about malnutrition. Once you get your head around that idea, obesity and all its related problems start making sense. Need to lose weight? Simple. Or maybe you've got gallstones? Well, as I'm finding out, that's not so simple.
Like any blog, this is all a work in progress, but if you're going to start anywhere, 2 minute summary is as good as any.

It seems pretty obvious - fat people are just greedy. When my weight started to creep up in my 20s, I’d still say it was ultimately because of bad eating habits, so while I wasn’t rejoicing growing outwards, I’d still hold myself accountable for it.
