A big part of what defines us is our diet. Nutrition, exercise, lifestyle and our thoughts work together to create the life we experience. We can’t ignore the quality and quantity of the foods we consume; they play a vital role in our well-being and the health we enjoy. Or don’t.

We’re so used to seeing obese people around us that I think it’s likely that many people don’t even really notice the problem anymore. It’s culturally acceptable for people to be seriously overweight. For one thing, the fast-food culture we’ve created makes it very easy for our health to go astray. Worse than that, though, business interests keep trying to convince us that fast food/processed food isn’t to blame.
