They're fat not because of how much they eat but the fact that they eat processed, fast-acting carbohydrates in breads, cereals, fruit juices and soft drinks as opposed to eating whole foods like corn, beans, fruits, leafy greens and other slow-acting carbohydrates.

Fast-acting 'bad' carbs in processed foods turn to sugar almost instantly; the body cannot use all this instant energy and stores it as fat. Whole foods do not turn into those sugars and are not stored as fat. If you're poor and live in inner cities, your access to whole foods is limited, and what is available is usually more expensive than what suburbanites can buy at their supermarkets. Food stores in poor areas usually charge more for everything they sell because they know their customers don't have enough money to go elsewhere; they're trapped.


When bad stuff is what is in the stores where you live, what are you going to do?


You can get a 25 lb bag of brown basmati for $50 that's about 250 servings. Canned vegetables 3 for a dollar.

Ain't buying that canard.

Are you really this ill-informed? Good foods don't exist in every store in every neighborhood. There are many cities considered "food deserts" because they don't have grocery stores at all, just fast foods and liquor stores. Also, due to government subsidies on corn and sugar, the "bad foods" are cheaper than the good foods.


They're food deserts because stores move out of neighborhood where they always get robbed. So your contention is that people from these hoods don't shop for groceries?
