Yes, it's that time of year to start getting ready for Winter and all the germs that come with it.
Anyway, while I was at the health center, they had this model of what body fat looks like.
It was sort of just laying right on the table in the waiting room--yeah a big ick!
"Globs of Fat: This glob represents the look and feel of 5 pounds of body fat."
And this thing was enormous, bigger than someones hand, maybe even two hands.
There was some text about another 1 pound piece of body fat, but I didn't see that lying around anywhere (and frankly the 5 pound glob was enough to get the point without comparison).
This fat demonstration would make practically anyone want to chuck the carbohydrates and forever.
Pizza, pasta, bread, rice, potatoes, cereal, crackers, cookies, cakes--be gone!
Having recently done this myself, I can really appreciate how important this is and also how hard it can be.
The food industry has us addicted to this crap and really it should be illegal.
The high carb diet in America is truly of epidemic proportions and is potentially catastrophic to our health and longevity.
The only thing that glob of fat is good for is tossing it out the window and into the garbage dump.
A high carb diet that makes people fat is death and we want to live! ;-)
