It’s not just calories in calories out. Obesity is very complex and includes some environmental factors we have very little control over. It seems some people like to believe that every fat person is just a glutton, but that is just not the case! This is a nice little video that attempts to explain some of the many factors involved.
I’ve also written quite a lot about psychiatric drugs and fat, since the increased use of psych drugs, too, is an additional factor in people getting fat these days. Often people are made to believe it’s their fault they’re getting fat when sometimes there is very little one can do as long as they are on the offending medications.
Eating wholesome whole real food is important for body/mind/spirit health and well-being. I’ve written a lot about my adventure with diet and healing here: Nutrition and gut health, Mental health and diet
