My DH made a comment before we visited his country about weight.
I thought it was interesting so decided to share.
He said people back home are going to assume he’s struck it rich, because if you are overweight, people think you have plenty of money for food.
This got me thinking of all the many reasons people are overweight.
1.You have enough money to have all your meals out. Or you use Uber Eats on the daily and don’t exercise at all.
On a side note, I’ve noticed that my friends that eat out once or more per day are generally overweight.
My family eats out about 3x a week, and I feel it!
2. In America, sometimes you are overweight because you don’t have money to purchase healthy organic foods, relying on pasta, Ramon, and heavily processed foods.
That said, countries that live off of brand and rice (both starchy) are generally not over weight. 🤔
3. Other times you are overweight because of your health. Many prescription medications slow down your metabolism so much, that one of the side effects is weight gain.
Regardless of your exercise regimen.
I’m sure there are other reasons, but these are the ones that came to mind.
