A rough rambling I didn't think much about and never finished.
Why are you fat?
You are an expression of your culture.
Born into it by accident, then forced upon you, then reinforced, and probably accepted and colluded with.
Our culture is pervasive, and very few people commit themselves to Culture jamming.
The culture expresses itself in all the things related to your physique.
There is a chain of things from the source to your physique. The way food is selected, created, grown, packaged, labeled, stored, shipped, purchased, prepared, served, eaten. The times for meals, the amount of meals, the mix of foods. The very tools you cook your foods with, or eat your foods with.
When that culture is toxic, it taints everything on that chain.
What can be done? Become aware of the culture, and of that chain. Identify and closely examine the philosophies at the most rudimentary levels.
The open free market encourages cheap products and cheap practises. Food laws are based solely around basic public safety.. everything else is a matter of appeasing the public, which can be strongly directed through advertising. Most of our "old ways" have been completely consumed by this culture. Who cooks from scratch anymore? Don't talk to me about time, you can find the time.. it's not even hard to do so.
