  1. It is about time people start to recognize the connection between the food we eat and how we feel mentally. But there is still a misconception about obesity, as being the result of inactivity and overeating especially of animal fats. We are told that obesity is due to overeating and lack of exercise exercise. But this is really putting the cart before the horse. Obesity is a symptom of pre-diabetic insulin resistance, also known among traditional medical circles as “syndrome X” or “the Metabolic Syndrome’, and among nutritional experts as “hypoglycemia”. This is admittedly the wrong term, but if we want to understand “obesity” we must recognize the epidemic of pre-diabtedic insulin resistance as the true cause. See:
