That's more of a preventative measure than a treatment, though.

Although that does help when you've actually got an itchy arse.

Cities can be difficult, especially big ones. As for the evolution of the human diet, it's always a factor, but not as major as you might think. Retraining the remnant cravings is a short term matter, easily handled by acclimating to a healthier diet over the course of a few weeks.

It will always be there, but the ability to stave off the craving for high carb, low protein foods (those being the most immediate transition to new fat stores and additional fat storing cells that never go away) is more highly linked to life history factors.

For example, my former lab manager's masters thesis on life history theory and human behavior revealed a strong link between low income housing situations, violent neighborhoods, and increased impulsive behavior. Basically, poor people have so many stressful factors in their living situation that it drastically impacts their ability and willingness to self regulate. And since positive, difficult lifestyle changes require large amounts of willpower, the odds are not in their favor.

True. Also, for the lower class, lack of transportation can play a role.
When your car runs like shit, or you have to take a bus/walk miles to the grocery store, you minimize trips by buying foods that will last until your next food run two to four weeks later (ie frozen dinners and processed foods loaded with salt and/or preservatives) when the next batch of food stamps come in.
Loading up on fresh, healthy food means you eat well for 2-3 days then have nothing until next time because the greens rotted.
Planning around the longevity/ shelf life of food is key, as coronus said.
User avatar #72 - Visual (04/22/2015) [-]
Also tends to be that those who are poor may have long work hours to try to make ends meet and making your own food is a limited option in between other responsibilities, work and sleep.
#57 - coronus (04/22/2015) [-]
True in general, but a little effort and budget planning makes home cooking exponentially cheaper, and a hell of a lot healthier.

Buying in bulk helps; So does buying frozen vegetables. In undergrad, I managed to feed a house of four men three meals a day, seven days a week on $77 - $100 a week, including beer, wine, and monthly scotch costs.

If you know where to go, and plan shopping trips according to which stores have the best deals, you can buy and freeze pork chops, chuck roast, ground meats, and tons of vegetables. Add rice, bulk potatoes, and cheap yellow onions, and you've got everything you need to make decent meals.

I managed to stretch a shopping trip into a few nights of meatballs, pancakes and eggs for breakfast, leftovers and cold cuts for lunch, bean and beef chilies, and bulky soups and soup stocks from smoked shoulder and frozen vegetables.

It's all in the plan.
User avatar #253 - benjaminbutton (04/22/2015) [-]
I agree, but regional factors also play a role. In cities, things can cost more than in more rural areas. Evolution also plays a role as we desire foods that contain fat because our ancestors when in times of scarcity praised any sort of fatty food. There are bunch of things that go into why people are obese. I just hate when people mrsnowballs just say, "Why don't you just buy healthy food." It's the same fucking argument as, well "If you're poor, why don't you just get more money." It's a weak argument and it is pointless, without considering the individual and what they are dealing with.

I kind of have to call bullshit on this. A sack of potatoes cost more than an average junk food but a sack of potatoes also last longer. The problem isn't price, the problem is that people don't think about longevity of the product. For example, up town from where I live rice and soup are cheap as fuck and a bag of apples, which contains about 12 apples, are about 3 bucks. The sack of potatoes I mentioned I think were selling for about 3 bucks as well. A family sized bag of lays potatoes chips is about 2 1/2 dollars and a case of little debbies is a dollar and a half. The other may cost a little more, but not that much more and they keep you fuller longer than any processed food.

On top of that, I spend about 30-35 dollars on apples, oranges, banana's, cereal, bread, milk, 2 things of juice, and a bunch of other healthy shit and I can live for a week. I could easily live off of 20 dollars eating nothing but fat free rice for a fucking month but I like a little variety.

I think the real problem is that people don't think about that and fast food restaurants are prevalent. You hungry? Get a whopper. Don't bother making your own lunch for work, just grab something from McDonalds.

To the people who say, "Well it rots" I have bought apples that have been good for two weeks straight and they are just fucking fine. Just store them correctly and be sure to clean them when you buy them.

True dude, but where I live a big bar of chocolate is £1, a punnet of strawberries or blueberries? £3.50 please.
A pizza for 4 people is £1, a chicken for 4 people is £6.
#186 - syshusky (04/22/2015) [-]
Bag of potatoes is 3 dollars and a pizza does not feed four people fully. Unless it is giant as hell and I doubt it is bigger than the average medium pizza.

idk, when you buy lettuce, as soon as you open the bag if you don't eat it within 3 days it all starts to go brown. Same with fruit/veggies. After about a week they go bad.
#185 - syshusky (04/22/2015) [-]
That is why you put it in the correct wrapping. Lettuce is plastic wrap and most veggies could be put in plastic or Tupperware.
User avatar #201 - hoponthefeelstrain (04/22/2015) [-]
the same happens with fruit such as bananas (that sit out) and apples. They get all mushy
#203 - syshusky (04/22/2015) [-]
(that sit out)...Banana's I agree can be a bitch but apples such as Gala and I wanna say granny smith last a long time. Bought a bag about a week and a half ago and have a couple left. They're still fine. A bruise, sure, but it isn't entirely wasted. Honeycrisp may as well be rotten the moment you buy it but give or take a couple they are not all that bad.
#224 - lolmart (04/22/2015) [-]
i used to get mad at my dad for always buying bananas because almost certainly one or two wont get eaten but the thing about bananas is theyre like $1 a dozen
User avatar #204 - hoponthefeelstrain (04/22/2015) [-]
well I like kinda soft apples so they have a short shelf life I guess...
#208 - syshusky (04/22/2015) [-]
Not entirely, just when you buy your apples do not put them in a bag because they can crush and mush themselves. And try and keep them in a cooler environment because the warmer it is the higher chance it is to rot. And of course clean them when you get home. If you have to keep them in a bag, keep it laying flat so that they are next to each other but not on top of each other. They may still rot faster than a crispier apple but it should last a little longer.

ibebannedfewl blocked me from further commenting on his content so I'll respond here. I am a Baptist Christian, but I believe that portions of the Bible have been taken too literally. I accept evolution as the method via which God created humans, and yes, I know God didn't want us to have Knowledge, but He made it available to us anyway through the Forbidden Fruit. And based on the fact that I don't take everything in the Bible literally, you can't say that it's been disproven. I will however agree that a conversation over the topic is unnecessary, as neither of us will cede to the other's philosophical premise.
User avatar #40 to #34 - benjaminbutton (10/07/2012) [-]
Science isn't meant to necessarily "prove" anything as I am quite sure you are aware of, however, it does look for possible answers supported by answers. Hypothetically though, let's say he existed. God is omnipotent is an acceptable way to describe him. If he were to be the creator of the universe, and we were of any rational importance of him, why are we so small an insignificant compared to the grand scheme of the universe. Second, if he were to exist, there is no rational to create a universe, he can just imagine the possible outcomes that yield to what creating a universe(s) would be like. Third, he wouldn't care. A God would never be good nor evil, he couldn't be. One would require emotion to portray the lines of Good or Evil, and a God would exist only through logic. He wouldn't feel for us, or have any reason to torture us nor allow us to live peacefully for all eternity. The reason God is so closely resemblant to us, is not because he created us through our image, but because we created him through ours. You'd have to assume that your God is the right one, and how can you be so sure of yourself.
User avatar #42 to #40 - jokeface ONLINE (10/07/2012) [-]
I'm going to use an analogy, if that's okay. In the game Minecraft, you play the only person in a massive world, all of which can be used and influenced by your own actions. But you are the only one there (unless you're playing with others, but for this case let's say you're playing one-player). Why would Notch, the game's creator, give you an entire world, when it's just you? The only logical answer is that you're meant to explore this world and spend your time traveling to all it's parts. In the same way, I believe God gave us the entire universe so that one day we could explore it all. It's going to take a long time to get to that point, but we have billions of years left, according to science. Who knows? Maybe by the time Earth dies, our species will have developed the technology to move to another world. And we'll just keep doing that until the events of Revelations.

As for your second point, you're right. there's no humanly rational reason for God to create us. But God is not human. It's entirely possible that He has reasoning beyond our capacity to understand. He is God after all. I'm sure He has secrets. But we are so small compared to Him that we have no place questioning His choices or actions. We are flawed and He is perfect.

Your third point ties into the second in terms of us not having the capacity nor the right to understand God. True, what we define as morality is merely an arbitrary decision for God. But He is not a being of "logic" per se, as you describe Him. What you call logic is in itself a subjective term, because God exists outside the parameters of every aspect of the physical universe. He is not bound by your definition of logic.

And I can't tell you how we can be sure because we're not sure. We just believe. And that's enough for us.
User avatar #43 to #42 - benjaminbutton (10/07/2012) [-]
Yes, I think you are right about this conversation, it isn't going to go anywhere. Unfortunately, you cannot see disbelief as I cannot see belief. THis will ultimately get us nowhere, but we can both agree that ibebannedfewl, gives atheist's such as me, a bad name and is not to be taken seriously. It's a shame he doesn't understand how religion works, yet he mocks it. I understand the idea of prayer, it's not to relieve ails or other such things, as look at it as a way for christians to reach out to their deity. So I'm not in agreement with his post.

Here we go with the ten year old crap. I can tell that you have nothing else better to do that to start wars on the internet. If I was ten it would be more along the lines of "u mad bro?" I really think you must be trolling at this point, or we are talking about a completely different thread because in no way is anything I said have to do with innocence. It was just a statement towards my attitude at benching. I really don't see where you are going with this. I think someone forgot to take their smart pills this morning. How about you go lay down, think about what you said, and we can have an intelligent conversation about this in the morning, ok champ.

Well obviously I'm the one dealing with a 10 year old. You still can't find any basis for me acting like someone who quote on quote, "Goes Hard." You have no evidence making all your other arguments invalid. Now I think you just be trollin'. So unlike yourself I have a life to get on with, so unless you have anything intelligent to say, go sit in the corner, think about what you said and then proceed to maybe post an intelligent, thoughtful remark to my response, that is far from unintelligent. Your frustration towards my nonaggressive behavior is getting rather annoying now and while I would love to keep going on as to why you are wrong, you are just proving it yourself.
User avatar #28 to #27 - somepervert (04/24/2012) [-]
if you have such a life why are you replying back. im not trolling, if you go back to your posts and reread what you put, you will see how you were acting like a douche. but whatever, to think i was actually dumbing down my posts for you. i've gotten alot of **** for using alot of big words, i just thought you would appreciate it with you're compressed vocabulary. now go away, i have man business to attend to.
User avatar #29 to #28 - benjaminbutton (04/24/2012) [-]
No of the words you used are part of a large vocabulary. Your using low to medium diction words at most. You vocabulary is far from hard to understand, so I fail to see what you mean by a large vocabulary. I was still not acting like a douche. I just said I don't like benching for the following reasons and how people put to much emphasis on strength. Strength is not everything and while keeping muscle tone is important, it is not needed to win battles. So I'm still waiting to see how I acted like a douce. Please do tell me. Also what man stuff could you possibly be attending to. Got a lot of masturbation in your near future, or are you just a wee little 13 year old with a complex going through puberty.
