Another lecture by Taubes.
My own on-the-scene expat photos, stories, podcasts, and video adventures, currently from exotic Thailand. Plus, anything else I write or video about.
Towards the beginning, he mentions the strong contrast between the extremely thin children compared to the obese adults. That caught my attention because when I was in my pre and early teens my weight was amazingly low. I went from 5'11 to around 6'1" and weighed between 135-145 pounds. When I got to college I was on the meal plan for 3 years, during which I had digestion problems and also put on around 30 pounds that first year. Most of what I ate was heavy in corn syrup and grains (soda, pasta, waffles for breakfast nearly every day). My face got noticeably chubbier and I began having a difficult time staying awake in class. Since I read Art de Vany roughly a year ago after it was linked on this site, I began feeling a lot better because I changed my diet. I never got huge before then, but I think I was certainly on the way given what seemed to be my family predisposition to getting heavy.
I'm just glad I caught it still being young. I know it's got to be a lot harder changing things when its corrective instead of preventative.
