The European medical-research community barely survived the Second World War, and these physicians and their ideas about being overweight weren’t around in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, when the question of what regulates fat accumulation was being asked.
Prior to this 1934 was The great Depression, the era of soup kitchens, bread lines, and unprecedented unemployment. This is where starch snuck in to all of our diets and became the normal, It’s not meant to be part of our everyday, but people still give their children sandwiches for lunch most days, it’s the lazy answer to a childs lunch and this is where they learn that its ok to stuff their faces with sandwiches on a daily basis. The Carbohydrates we need in our diets are in food like sweet potato, butternut, cauliflower, broccoli, eggplant, and Brussel sprouts just to name a few.
Our bodies Take the Carbohydrates it needs from these food items and no more, however if you eat 4 slices of bread (2 sandwiches) for e.g. You are consuming ,(1) more Carbs than your body needs, and (2) the wrong type of Carbohydrates .
These starches are the reason weight is such an issue for most people .
