Day 174: The Men Who Made Us Fat

on June 22, 2012

This evening has been a bit of a tellython. Well it was once the boys went to sleep!

Tonight I’ve caught up with Bob’s Burgers, A Town Called Eureka and the second part of BBC2 documentary The Men Who Made Us Fat.

This this particular episode Jacques Peretti investigates the introduction of Supersizing food portions from it’s inception in 1972 at a Chicago cinema then through fast food and into the onslaught of sweets and chocolate being advertised widely.

It has there has also been found a link to child obesity and lack of exercise. However, strangely it would appear that the lack of exercise only actually occurs after the obesity has set in and isn’t the nucleus.

So the message is. Just because it’s there it doesn’t mean we have to eat it. We just need to exact our own portion control. This isn’t easy as we were brought up by baby boomers. Who were ‘fed’ up by parent who had lived through rationing during the War. They fed larger portions to their kids, which happened to us and now we are doing it to our kids, and not always with the healthy stuff either.

We need to get educated and take responsibility.
