What is really the cause of obesity (the aetiology of obesity)? This is not a question most people think about because they assume they already know the answer. Too many calories causes obesity, they think. Of course, if it were true, then cutting calories would reverse the obesity epidemic. That, unfortunately, did not happen.

The entire obsession with calories was a 50 year dead end. We can only start to address the problem of weight loss and gain by understanding the real causes. So what is the real cause of obesity? Let’s go back in time and see what people thought about obesity in the past.

Eating low carb to lose weight is not new, it was known back in the 19th century, and indeed the first diet book written was about eating that way: https://archive.org/details/letteroncorpulen00bantrich

It means you've got enough money to get that way. Up until the early 20th cen. extra weight was seen as a sign of prosperity. If it was good enough for Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft, it's good enough for us.

Teddy and Billy did it the old fashioned way. These days calories are so cheap that it's as likely an indication of poverty as it is anything else. $10 on a nice 3 lb chicken, or two massive bags of Doritos at Walmart? Hey, I know which one will feed a family all day long.

And the dog. Chicken bones can kill a dog, but not good ol' Nacho Cheese Dorito's.

Now quit being snooty and pass the bean dip.

Does it come in a can and is it sold at gas stations? That's my kind of bean dip.

The real problem, in Pigmeat's case, is how to remedy a fat head. Doh!

Is there any other kind?

I'm big skulled. A giant brain like mine needs plenty of room, unlike a certain pinhead I know.

BTW, there's a carnival in town. The sideshow manager asked if you were still available for the summer.
