See the NYC soda thread for what happens when you dare take away the 2-liter soda with delivery pizza, and then wonder why we're all fat.

Ima4nic8or: Deep Contact: We were always outside playing in the 60's and 70's. I don't remember my parents ever having soda in the house, and I never saw any fat people. Interesting!

And on the very rare occasions when we did see a fat person we were not afriad to say that they were fat.  A little social pressure goes a long way. Unfortunately we have removed all the stigma associated with being a fatass, or a divorcee or an unwed mom.


So yay babies of rape put up for adoption and yay for women who couldn't divorce men who beat them & the kids? Good old days my a$$.

As a parent of two kids under 10,  I can see what a pathetically difficult time kids their age will have in NOT getting fat.    All day long they have stuff on TV to watch with 8 million channels.  There are Ipads, video games, movies whenever they want. Most of the parents are fat, and they work 10-12 hours a day and when they get home, it's yeah just eat what you want, I am too tired to cook healthy food.  I work a lot of hours, but I do my damdest to keep my kids involved in sports and get them outside.  I am constantly turning off TV and video games.  We do our best to get decent food into them, vegetables, wheat bread, wheat pasta, whatever.  Truth is, the food, entertainment, and sugar industries want your kids to be fat little consumers, the are farking BESEIGED with bad choices all day.  It amazes me that I have to defend them against it.  I tell them the truth all the time while trying not to be a killjoy.

I was a kid in the early 80s and we spent all day outdoors, running all over the place and riding bikes - all without parents watching our every move <shudder>.  Why?  Because a>it was fun.  b>there was nothing much to do indoors.  So many parents around us just seem to give up.  Their kids rarely see the light of day unless they're going out to eat something.

It's going to continue to be a struggle but I aint going to lose.

My mom was divorced from my abusive, alcoholic dad in 1970 (thank FSM).

CSB, I wasn't allowed to join the boy scouts because there was "not enough room".  My mom raised such a stink that they suddenly found room foom me and all the other single parent kids there was also "no room for" to join.  We nicknamed ourselves the "fatherless bastard" patrol.

The baby boomers deliberately fed their kids way too much sugary/fatty/fried food, so they could outrun the torches and pitchforks when the younger generation figured out how they'd been screwed over.
 
2013-02-24 08:42:32 PM

namatad: the answer to (D) is so simple.
3) cane sugar vs HFCS - HFCS was rapidly introduced to many processed foods and soft drinks in the U.S. from about 1975 to 1985.
(( cane is ~100 sucrose ( a disaccharide  ) whereas HFCS is made up of two


I'm no fan of HFCS but (IMO) it's not so much the makeup of HFCS but that it's incredibly cheap to produce and so ends up in EVERYTHING, adding empty calories to foods that would otherwise not be there.

Another diet issue is that between the 60s and now a lot changed in meals. Processed foods have not only gotten cheaper and cheaper but the portions have gotten larger and the companies doing the processing have worked out that people are programmed to seek out sugar (hello HFCS), salt and fat and so they add these to all the foods/meals they make, leading to the meals being even more calorie laden and designed so people eat the whole meal.

I don't know if it's all that cheap or if we've just paid for it to seem that way. Corn growers have received billions of dollars in subsidies each year since at least 1995 according to this EWG chart: http://farm.ewg.org/progdetail.php?fips=00000&progcode=corn

I graduated in the late '80s and there weren't a whole lot of fat people around here even then. Then came the '90s and people really started putting on the pounds, until by the late '00's it was normal and this strange collective amnesia set in where everyone started pretending things were always this way and got angry if you said otherwise. It's part of the crazy we have as a nation right now.

It's good to see that you make the same logical errors in fields other than climatology.  Consistency is important.


Current obesity has two major factors:  first, activity levels for children have been declining rapidly since then; second, the focus on "low fat" diets with a concomitant rise in carbohydrate consumption is a perfect diet -- IF you are trying to fatten them up for slaughter.  Otherwise, not so much.  Get people to lower protein and fat consumption, and drive up carbohydrate consumption, and twenty years later, diabetes rates go through the roof.  Shocking, I tell you.

That was well before people started doing selective breeding to create strains of cannabis with elevated THC levels.  So, imagine the difference between modern beer and the stuff from ancient Egypt that was only like 2% alcohol.

Ah - yes - it's cheap partly because the corn industry gets us all to pay for corn whether we want to or not. I don't know if it would be an economic substitute for cane sugar or not if we didn't subsidize corn.

I only recall two overweight kids in my school from that time. We ate different meals compared to kids today. There were processed foods like twinkies and hostess cupcakes, but they were only for desert. I don't know if that diet change explains it, but it might be a good place to start.

namatad: the answer to (D) is so simple. it isnt one thing, but a couple.
1) buses - kids used to walk more and ride buses to school. none of that rides from mom BS
2) walking - some kids actually were able to walk to school or walked to the public bus stop and took that bus.
3) cane sugar vs HFCS - HFCS was rapidly introduced to many processed foods and soft drinks in the U.S. from about 1975 to 1985.
(( cane is ~100 sucrose ( a disaccharide  ) whereas HFCS is made up of two monosaccharides ))

combining these two major issues would lead to fat americans.

stop drinking soda

Cheap carbs, back in the 70's soda came in smaller cups (small was 8 ounces and a medium was 12 ounces don't remember what large was but wasn't much bigger maybe 16 or 20) and you paid for each one (no free refills on anything other than water and coffee). Fast forward a few decades and a medium soda is 32 ounces and you get free refills.

I wore a metallic gold polyester Nehru jacket in 1969, with vertically-striped bell bottom cotton pants and a (required) necktie that was 25% aluminum and 75% Rayon; you could scout a lasagna pan with that tie.

SomeoneDumb: I graduated HS the next year, 1970, and I'm pretty sure the girls at school couldn't wear pants to school any more than we guys could wear Levis. Also, this was before book bags or backpacks -  we all slung our books on our hip or held them to our chest and every Friday had to bring home our gym clothes for washing.

And, yes, the girls were great in those days, as were the cars.


Yes, those "great Cars" - everything looks better seen in a rear-view mirror,

With today's cars, you can walk away from most crashes. If you got into a crash in a 1960s vehicle, you were pretty much hamburger. Those "body on frame" designs were deadly.
You needed to "tune" the engines up every ~20K miles.
If you lived in a Northern climate, the salt on the roads would cause serious rust damage in 3 years for some models.  No you see cars 10+ years old here with no rust at all.
If you could actually afford a vehicle with A/C, it needed "recharging" every 2 years, or seals needed to be replaced. Most people just gave up on the A/C after this time
Crappy AM radios - actually a lot of the expensive "options" like the clocks, radios, power antennas etc would break after a year or so.  The warranties were a joke.

No. I don't miss the 1960s at all.
