If there will be food shortages, it could be the best thing for Americans who are the most obese on earth. Food shortages might take a huge leap towards better health since obesity brings on so many health problems.
Well, it's the carbohydrates and sugar that are the drivers of all of it. Alas, when people are starving, they don't eat good proteins and fats.
It's really stress stimulus response - we spent millions of years in 'survival' mode with scare food, foraging for it (moving around slowly alot)... now people are stressed out by modern living ( jobs, commutes, school, news, internet, world events etc ) ..and
sit most of day...and reach for the easiest 'fix' - which is high gylcemic food - note how 'coffee' has become a 1000 calorie cream/sugar drink and queue's line up everywhere all day ...
If you took peoples 'stress fix' away, they will lose weight, but they will need another fix - used to be smoking, when that got banned food issue went up - if you make food scarce, I predict Drug issues increase
which are already out of control.
In other words, the real problem isn't food, or peoples will power its modern living which is so removed from our biology.
But if you want to get some control over your eating - then learning to de-stress some healthier way is start ( walking in nature, animals good start), and then look at intermittent fasting because against our biology to have continous calories - it prevents cellular
mechanisms for cleanup such as autography, and also epigenetic gene expression for 'healthier outcomes' .
Mark is correct in that repeated exposure to spiking blood sugar eventually damages insulin receptors, and insulin production in pancreas ..and this downstream leads to obesity - one way it can occur.
But FYI - calorie's and type is overrated, the body is smart and adjusts quickly to changes in calorie's - doctors again failed to understand the laws of thermodynamics - calorie is definitely not a calorie .. because body is not a 'closed system' - that is, its gene expression and hormones that determine the use of a calorie. This is easily proven by looking at people with over or under action thyroid hormones, menopause and host of conditions where calorie intake doesn't change but hormones
changed lead to weight gain, aging also shows this well been studying this a long time, aging is mostly result of the damage to systems and receptors over time. ( a closed system is a steam engine - energy in -> energy used + heat loss ...but in the body,
for example we are symbionts - u have trillions of cells, but each cell has approximately 10 bacteria in symbiosis ..and certain bacteria has use energy ..thus for example, experiments show transferring a slim person gut biome to obese led to
becoming thin ...another factor is metabotic process adapt including micro movements which over 24 hours can make enough different to account for gain/loss ..and as said, receptor efficiency and hormone signalling (its not just insulin, its WAY more
complex ..body has massive amount of feedback loops ..I studied complex system math ..body is very complex and we can't account/model it all yet ...so what i say is, a 'calorie is a calorie' only for people with perfectly working bodies, not many , mostly
those under 20 y/o ..after than damage accumulates especially in modern toxic world ..where chemicals in air/water/food are damaging all these systems, proven science BTW - even more complex is interaction gene expression with gut biome ).
>>instead of thinking about 'health' of your body, instead try to optimize the health of one cell - because if you do that, the whole body will follow but not case other way around.
FYI - health is really my lifes study because as I mentioned I had severe health issue from around 11, medical couldn't help me and had to 'cure' myself through studying everything imaginable in science and self
experiments ..some of which were very dangerous ..but i'm still here, healthier now than most of my life, so I try to share what i've learned on this journey - i find most I read is inaccurate to the leading edge of science,
medicine mostly is bad science and is really poor in general health.

Question everything, especially what you believe you know. The foundation of science is questioning the data, not trusting the data.
I only trust fully falsified, non vested interest 'data', which is extremely rare in our world of paid framing narratives 'psy ops'.
