It is Obvious

Garbage Out

It is obvious: I don’t read the newspapers

My wife read me one of the headline story in the Times today which said that 25% of people who are obese can do nothing about it as it is in their genes.  Glory be!  Not only has cold fusion been rendered irrelevant a quarter of our population have mastered perpetual motion.

I have long said that losing weight is simple.  It is not easy.  Take in fewer calories than you put out and the result is weight loss.  Do not worry if you have no fat on you – your body will happily break down muscle for energy.  Every day you are late having breakfast it does it.  My father said to me before political correctness was invented: “no fat people walked out of Belsen”.

Any diet that you are on will only lose you weight if the calories in/out formula is obeyed.  The diet will not work unless it fits your life-style.  So a fad diet is OK…if it works for you.

Just eating a bit less and exercising a bit more will always work.  It might not be the most efficient way to lose weight but it will work…always.  It is possibly the easiest as you will not really notice a spoon less of food on every plate and you can put in a bit more exercise without hardly noticing.  I have some ankle weights that fit under my trousers so just walking takes a lot more effort and does not stress any joints.

My wife spotted another ‘fact’ in the article that 10% of children had the same problem with their genes.  Now I thought that your genes at the start of your life were with you for all of it?  So how did the 15% of adults manage to change their genes as they grew up?  Not only have they developed perpetual motion some of them also managed to manipulate their genes as they grew up.  GM crops eat your heart out.

My wife persisted and in the ‘Life’ section, 23 pages later, was an article on diets.  It said that if you wanted lose weight then take in fewer calories than you put out and that is all there is to it!

It is obvious: I don’t read the newspapers and I know why
