I was just sitting in my living room, watching commercials on Television, when I noticed that most of the commercials are geared towards low fat, dieting, gyms, and everything geared toward losing weight.
I couldn't believe it! We are becoming an obsessive compulsive dieting, low fat society. All our thoughts are geared towards weight and weight LOSS in particular.

Did you know that people who actually have a metabolic disorder or a neuroendocrine disorder ( such as hypothyroidism, Cushing's Syndrome, or Polycystic Ovarian disease) do not get excessively obsese? And these are the people who have more of a tendency to get obese.

Statistically, neuroendocrine disorders cause less than 1% of the total cases of obesity!

Obesity occurs in individuals who do NOT have an underlying metabolic disorder!
