- Obesity has grown 25% since 1980.
- Although calorie intake did rise its growth stopped around 1990.
- Total fat intake % has dropped consistently.
- HOWEVER, DAILY CARBOHYDRATE INTAKE CONSISTENTLY INCREASED.
The general public did not know any better and reduced their fat consumption and therefore increased their carb intake.
If you think that being overweight or obese can be blamed on fat or calorie intake, I think this shows you need to think again. Excessive carbohydrate consumption is to blame.
