We discussed how wheat contains an appetite stimulant (gliadin) that causes us to eat, on average, 440 more calories per day, every day. (440 calories per day x 365 days per year = 45.8 pounds gained per year. Yeah, that’s a lot.)
This phenomenon explains why Americans are incessantly hungry, seeking food every 2 hours (thus the inane and destructive advice from dietitians to “eat many small meals every 2 hours” throughout the day), obese, and diabetic.
We are the unwitting, obedient victims of the manipulations of Big Food, eating more and more, buying more and more, then blaming ourselves for our lack of restraint. In the conventional way of thinking, you are overweight and unhealthy . . and it’s your fault!
But it’s NOT your fault. It is the fault of a system eager to profit from your misfortune.
And thank you, Kelly, for helping me spread the word!
