I think the issue is that so many dodgy diets have taken fasting and done it incorrectly which has lead to many dealths. So people assume all fasting is bad for us and they forget that humans didn't eat 2000calories every single day and that we used to go for weeks without large amounts of food.
I think my biggest issue is how people think our bodies have evolved in such a little time to be able to consume the fast food and processed garabage that is mass produced. As this food becomes more common and normalised the more we see health issues and obesity. In countries that have held back from this life style, we see healthier people.
There's some serious issues in society when it comes to diet and It's what's considered the norm that concerns me the most. It's good that we're seeing more and more doctors that are looking into fasting and seeing how benificial it is. Sadly it's hard to make money off something that just requires you to not eat or pay any amount of money to do =(
I literally have friends that think that coke cola made up excercise for a healthy lifestyle and that eating fruit is what makes people fat. So what they take from this is to NEVER go on walks or excersise and they go on these insane diets where they're eating deep fried battered food and still wonder why they're fat. I honestly don't know how they can think that's what must be done with the infomation provided. Yet when you try to tell them why, they just get angry and refuse to listen to any logic or reasoning. So i have no intention of telling them I'm fasting as all they believe in are the fads they see in movies and poorly made docus.
I imagine obesity will continue to get a lot worse before it gets better. =(
