  • In Germany we have a Kids yogurt from Danone which implies to be healthy cause of calcium etc. And there are still parents who believe it. My kids eat that sometimes too , of course they are kids and love sweets, and that is the fact it’s sweets for them. I give this to them as sweet as something Extra. And I think that is important to make children aware of what they eat. Not to strictly avoid certain foods. But also be a role model. This is sometimes hard but it is ok too because this is Authentic.

  • Should clarify the definition of diabetes... Lisa doesn’t even it do it which is disappointing... I am type 1 and I did not thing to cause it type 2 is lifestyle and diet influenced... they’re discussing type 2 diabetes... type 1 can not be delayed by diet and life style and there’s no known cause

  • It’s devastating the only options lower income people have for food and accessibility to only certain types of food bc of distance and cost. The segment of briana talking about being bullied made me cry absolutely heartbreaking I really hope since this she’s been able to get more support to lead a healthier happier life bc it’s obvious her parents love her and will do whatever and she’s a sweet girl

  • Everyone harps on 'fat' but that is CLEARLY not the problem. They picked up so many low fat things in that grocery store (cabbage, cereal, bread), so clearly that's not the problem. We're inundated with low fat everywhere, so clearly fat is NOT the problem. How *could* it be? The real issue is that we have so many *simple* carbs in our diet now (because they're cheaper, unfortunately) and since carbs don't fill you, we eat more and more and more. A constant stream of carbohydrates, but no fat (because fat is evil, apparently) or protein (because apparently meat is evil, now, apparently?) is why we're Starving and Fat and Sick. This is just evolution in overdrive. We're meant to store fat to survive times of scarcity when there is NO food, but there are literally *always* simple carbs to eat, so we never get to use our fat stores. This is why we are where we are. You can work out all day, but you CANNOT out exercise a bad diet. You'd have to be an olympic athlete training twice daily to work off the amount of carbs people take in in the form of supposedly healthy food, and you'd be miserable. We need protein and fat for essential amino acids and fat soluble vitamins, and we also need carbs for certain vitamins, too, but there's no 'balance' anymore. Sure CICO is the way to go, but if you eat 1200 of low fat low protein high carb foods, you'll be hungry all the time. If you eat 1200 of high protein, moderate fat, moderate-low carb foods, you'll stay full on less. Doesn't even have to be any specific diet, but too many carbs are killing us. It's not just calories, carbs also count.

  • As much as people’s mindsets need to change, so do the sale prices that have to change too, why should junk food be cheaper and more accessible than the healthier options. Why is a packet of chocolate bars cheaper than a bag of apples?. This is what needs to change as well as people’s opinions, but first the accessibility of these foods needs to change too!

  • Stop lying to people and telling them fat is fat. Thats witchraft. It not just fat!!!! That is your body trying to hide toxins in your tissues!!! Swolled up with toxins. They stay hungry because there is addictive additives in the junk food!!! plus their not getting actual nutrients. the fact they allow companies to keep selling these tells you, they want you to keep eating them. they want you to be sick because they make money off yalls deaths.. man. wake the F*** up!!!!

I really want to help them it’s so sad to see them like this. I won’t charge no one it’s all free. I can’t wait until I get older I will help everyone ❤️

  • As a child, we always had the 'light' margarine, the skimmed milk, the wholewheat sandwiches, the butter halved when our mother would make us buns, takeaway only 2/3 times a year (if that) in our teens, only allowing diet fizzy drinks once we hit our late teens and pastries/ doughnuts were not allowed, full stop. I remember wishing I had the crisps and chocolate spread sandwiches of a girl I sat beside when I was 8 but I still remember my mom saying 'I feed you what I do because I care.' She never deprived us but taught us that sweets are treats and they aren't treats if you have them all the time.

  • I must ask this: Why do so many people over there don't have health insurance? Is it to expensive? Don't they take it that seriously? Everybody will get sick from time to time. I'm from germany and everybody must be insured over here. I can go to a doctor whenever i want to. Medication over here is also often times way cheaper because of that. Even the statutory health insurance pays a lot. And i do have a chronic disease, but til today they paid for every hospitalization and other expensive treatments.

    M. A.M. A.2 dögum síðan
    • Insurance is very expensive in America & going to the doctor without insurance is even more expensive. Insurance often doesn’t cover enough to make a difference for people, and when the government steps in the quality of care goes down. It’s insane, we really need health care reform.
