People in the United States are becoming heavier. Statistics tell us that 61 percent of all adults are now overweight and 27 percent of them are dangerously overweight or obese. The numbers for children and adolescents are not much better – they range from 20 to 25 percent and show no signs of decreasing or even leveling off.
The percentages of overweight people in our population have taken a dramatic upswing since the early 1980’s. Prior to that time, the rates of overweight were stable and had not increased much from those at the turn of the century. Weight experts have looked at the data and tried to understand why the rates have taken such a dramatic turn upwards. We found that several important environmental changes have occurred.
First, we are surrounded by an abundance of delicious, inexpensive and convenient food. Great advances in the technology of growing food have made it less expensive. The average family now spends 11 percent of its income on food compared to 22 percent in 1950. Since our dollar now buys more food, it is easier to have more of it around.
Couple this with the increasing frequency of restaurant dining in America. In the late seventies, less than 20 percent of our calories were eaten outside of the home. Currently, 34 percent of our calories are eaten away from home. Restaurant and fast food meals are notorious for being much higher in sugar, fat and calories. The faster, more convenient and inexpensive the meal is, the worse it usually is nutritionally. For example, at many fast food restaurants we can “supersize” a meal for a few extra cents (a real bargain!) and turn an already high fat, high sodium, junk food meal into a super sized feast that often contains more calories than the average person should be consuming in the whole day.
In addition, our eating opportunities have greatly increased. We can eat full meals just about anywhere – – at sporting events, airports and gas stations. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture there has been an average increase in food consumption of 500 calories per person per day from 1984 to 2000. Since it takes 3500 extra calories to gain a pound, this increase of 500 daily calories could be responsible for a gain of fifty pounds a year to an individual.
The foods we consume in greatest quantities are also the worst ones for us. Our intakes of simple carbohydrates, fats and sugars have seen the greatest increases. One 12-ounce can of soda, for example, contains the equivalent of ten teaspoons of sugar. Many children, teens and adults slug down several 20-ounce or larger servings of these pure sugar and empty calorie beverages every day. Researchers have shown that calories taken in as liquids do not register in the satiety centers of the brain (the part of the brain that makes us feel full.) Because we don’t feel full after drinking a calorie-rich beverage, we tend to eat as much solid food (and calories) as we might have without the drink. By contrast, eating a calorie-rich snack does make us feel full and we tend to eat less at a following meal. Accordingly, adding one soda a day to a child’s daily caloric intake has been shown to be a contributing factor for child obesity.
Furthermore, because foods and beverages like soda, chips, candies, cookies and baked goods have a relatively long shelf life at the supermarket and are very profitable, food manufacturers have a lot of money to spend on advertising. Food advertising, in terms of dollars spent annually, is now second only to automobile advertising in this country.
On the other side of the calorie intake equation is energy expenditure. We are becoming less active in our daily lives. Great technological advances save us steps during our activities of daily living and the layouts of our communities have also changed. Children walking to school and adults walking or biking to work have become increasingly rare as our population moves out to suburbia. Television must be mentioned, as well, because when we sit and watch television we are not active. While we sit and watch, we are also bombarded with colorful commercials that showcase junk foods. Many Americans consume the majority of their daily calories during primetime television viewing. An important study done with adolescent girls showed that their metabolism while watching television was lower than if they were sleeping. Our increase in television and computer use must also be recognized as a factor in our rising overweight rates. Obviously, our culture is making it very easy for us to gain weight. To avoid weight gain and to lose weight takes major effort for most of us.
Being overweight has long been considered a cosmetic concern. However, the thinking about excess weight has changed significantly over the past several years as physicians see more and more health problems directly related to how much extra body fat a person carries. The rate of diabetes, a disorder of blood sugar, has reached epidemic proportions. Its growth is directly attributed to the increase in cases of adult onset diabetes, which is usually caused by excess weight. Actually, excess body weight is felt to contribute to 61 percent of all cases of diabetes. Being overweight has been shown to contribute to significant numbers of cases of many serious conditions: 25 percent of high blood pressure, 17 percent of heart disease, 30 percent of gallbladder disease, 11 percent of breast, uterine and colon cancers each and 95 percent of sleep apnea.

Detoxification is extremely important part of managing a healthy nutritional lifestyle. Detoxification cleansing programs are varied. If you do a detoxification to fast or to much at one time it will over whelm the systems That is why it is broken into a varied program. Why detoxification? Our bodies acts like a sewer system and energy plant all day long. We take foods in and then we try to break it down for our energy, if it is not for our energy it turns garbage. Some pollutants have long staying side effects. Dietary changes you are making are also a form of cleansing.” But, most people need more then this, especially when it comes to liver, colon, kidney, heart health.

Body Detoxification/Cleansing is even important for children. Our internal organs can hold lot toxins, and sometimes, it is impossible to get those toxins out, without doing cleansing. Our liver can contain hundreds of intra-hepatic stones. Those stones will block bile flow, and affect the bases of your health, your digestion. Another problem is parasites. You must learn as much as possible about parasites. And, don’t forget also dental toxins can cause a lot of damage to the body systems.
