Yup, that's right. All of us. Unless we consciously do something about it.
Here's the thing: we Americans worship at the feet of two gods. On the one hand, we bow down to the Golden Arches and all that they symbolize, namely convenience, and on the other hand, we sing the praises of the likes of Twiggy.
So let's take a look at this little conundrum, shall we? Women across the nation are being told they should look like this:
The solution here is that each and every American must begin to prioritize health over convenience. Something has got to become more important than that almighty god of luxury. Yes, there are all the familiar scare tactics: diabetes, heart disease, cancer. It's easy to throw those words around, but really, those threats are years and decades off for most people, easily brushed aside.
And obesity? When we continue to flaunt women who are impossibly thin, those whose physiques are quite the opposite can all too easily say, "That's un-maintain-able! It's unhealthy!" And the truth is: they're right. So why should they bother? They'll never attain Twiggy status and truthfully they don't want to, so they will never reach that glossy American ideal. What motivation, then, do they have to forgo what has become a cultural expectation: quick service, quick food, quick results, everything fast-fast-fast?
Our culture is making us fat. No, The China Study, as much as I want to agree with your message, it's not too much protein and not enough carbs. It's not meat. It's not fast food -- not by itself, anyway.
We have become completely reliant upon, and quite possibly addicted to, convenience. And I just can't see a way out for the masses.
