The Truth About Why We Get Fat

Spread the love

Maybe the worst thing about losing weight is there are a million and one different ways you can do it.

Go on Amazon.com and you’ll find THOUSANDS of different weight loss books, each author telling you their way is best.

How do we know who’s right and who’s wrong?

Maybe the method that worked for the author won’t work for you.

Out of the few methods that WOULD work for you, which method will work best?

And what makes it all worse is you can’t just try a weight loss method for a few days and know if it’s working or not.

Since it takes time for the weight to come off, you won’t know if a particular method is actually working unless you’ve tried it for a good few weeks.

And none of these methods are EASY. They all take time and effort.

So this is what you have to face:

  • You have to choose between THOUSANDS of different possible weight loss methods.
  • You have no idea which method will work best.
  • You have to pick a method that appeals to you, and stick to it for a good few WEEKS before you know if it’s actually working.
  • Every weight loss method requires some effort on your part–it’s hard work. And it’s even harder when you have no idea if it’s going to work for you or not.
  • So you have to work hard on something that takes effort, willpower, and time out of your day.

You have no idea if it will work or not until you’ve done it for a good few weeks.

You have thousands of options to choose from, and you may never find a working solution, even if you tried method after method for the rest of your life, all the way to your death bed.

Surely, There Must Be A Better Solution?!

Well actually, there is.

Now, I know that right this moment you might be thinking I’m in danger of becoming just another one of those weight loss book authors who is telling you their way is best.

But I’m not telling you about MY way.

I’m not telling you about some fancy new method that I’ve discovered.

I’m telling you about a proven historical method that has withstood the test of time.

It’s worked for thousands (if not millions) of people in the past, and it will work for YOU.

I’m telling you about a real working method that has been lost in the modern-day noise of people trying to make money from your misery and the misery of over a billion overweight people on this earth.

The weight loss industry–including private organizations, government bodies, and private individuals–profits from you being fat and staying fat.

They’ll show you a weight loss method–some diet, exercise, piece of equipment, book, magazine, gym membership–that SEEMS like it’s going to work, but actually doesn’t… so you can buy their NEXT weight loss method and so on and so on until the day you give up or die.

I would make more money if I did the same to you.

But my conscience won’t allow it.

I want you to lose weight, and I’m willing to show you the right way to lose weight, even if it means I make less money.

In this industry, supplements are where the money’s at.

Open any successful weight loss or muscle magazine, and you’ll see some 80% of the ad space is taken up by supplement ads that big supplement companies pay thousands of dollars for.

The easiest way for me to get rich would be to come up with the next best supplement for losing weight.

But that’s not what I’m going to do.

Because it’s not what you need.

Though there exist some all-natural supplements (like this one) that can help you lose weight, the most IMPORTANT thing you should focus on is the right DIET and the right EXERCISES and other lifestyle changes that will stimulate your body to change.

And today I want to tell you about one of those historical methods that are known to work and WILL work for you.

Why A Historical Method?

To find real, working weight loss methods, we have to look to the past.

Why?

Simple.

Because there’s too much profiteering going on today, there are too many methods to choose from, and it’s impossible to know which methods work and who is telling the truth.

The weight loss industry today is full of shit.

The REAL solution to weight loss was discovered by scientific researchers centuries ago, and it’s very simple.

Heck, the real solution to weight loss is so simple, any observant person (who isn’t drowned by the noise made by today’s weight loss industry) can tell you what it is.

And I have just the right observant person to tell you.

His name was Brillat-Savarin.

Brillat-Savarin was a lawyer and connoisseur of food who wrote what may be the single most famous book ever written about food, The Physiology of Taste, first published in 1825.

“Tell me what you eat,” Brillat-Savarin wrote, “and I shall tell you what you are.”

Over the course of the thirty years it took him to write the book, he held more than five hundred conversations with dinner companions who were “threatened or afflicted with obesity,” one “fat man” or woman after another, declaring their devotion to bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes.

This led Brillat-Savarin to conclude that the roots of obesity were obvious.

The first was a natural predisposition to fatten.

The second was “the starches and flours which man uses as the base of his daily nourishment.”

He added that “starch produces this effect more quickly and surely when it is used with sugar.”

This, of course, made the cure obvious as well.

“An anti-fat diet,” Brillat-Savarin wrote, “is based on the commonest and most active cause of obesity, since, as it has already been clearly shown, it is only because of grains and starches that fatty congestion can occur, as much in man as in the animals… It can be deduced, as an exact consequence, that a more or less rigid abstinence from everything that is starchy or floury will lead to the lessening of weight.”

Here’s a longer list of the foods that Savarin’s overweight dinner companions indulged in excess:

Bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, beans, peas, biscuits, “sweet things”, tourte a la frangipane (a pastry dish with added sugar), macoroni, cakes, other flour-based foods.

He gives a clue as to what you CAN eat in the following passage:

“Avoid everything farinacious, under whatever form it appears. You have yet the roasts, salads, and herbacious vegetables.”

“Roasts” referring to red meat, poultry and fish.

And here’s more advice Savarin offers on how to lose weight:

“Drink every summer thirty bottles of Seltzer water, a large glass in the morning, two before breakfast and another at bed−time. Drink light white acid wines like those of Anjon. Avoid beer as you would the plague. Eat radishes, artichokes, asparagus, etc. Eat lamb and chicken in preference to other animal food; eat only the crust of bread, and employ a doctor who follows my principles, and as soon as you begin you will find yourself fresher, prettier, and better in every respect.”

Sparkling water, by the way, is an excellent appetite suppressant, I highly recommend it.

So, there you have it.

A simple observation on the kind of foods that overweight people tend to eat.

A scientist might argue that, “Oh, there’s no causality, it’s just an observation”. They’ll say it’s ooooorrrll just a beeg coincidence…

But observational evidence is POWERFUL.

When you observe animals, observe history, observe fat people and thin people, you’ll cut through the bullshit of today’s weight loss industry and discover the TRUTH about why we get fat and what to do about it.

So get started on cutting out those starches, cutting out those carbs and those sugars like Savarin recommended, and let us know how you get on in the comments section below.

Maybe you’ve tried this approach before? How did you get on? Let us know below, and let’s get this conversation started.
