Just Put The Avocado-Toast Down! - Millennials "Will Be The Fattest Generation On Record"

Millennials are on a crash course with the grim reaper. This generation is apparently the smartest generation to ever roam planet earth, however, they can hardly manage their health. Something is amiss here... It turns out, millennials are set to become the fattest generation on record – with three-quarters projected to be obese by the time they reach forty, new research shows.

Despite all the modern technological advances and fancy health-trends circulating social media channels, the majority of millennials are overweight. Perhaps, overindulgence of the Western culture should be blamed... After all, Venezuelans lost an average of 19lbs in weight, as their fiat system crashed and burns. Maybe the Western millennial will have a day of reckoning when their fiat currency tumbles and inflation rears its ugly head, until then, the peak overweight millennial is still ahead.

New research from the Cancer Research UK states more than seven in ten millennials (born 1980s-1990s) are projected to become overweight between the ages of 35-44. Even the baby boomers (born 1945-55), which are criticized for stripping the economy of productivity managed to be around five in ten at the same age.

“Being overweight is the UK’s biggest preventable cause of cancer after smoking, but most people don’t know about this substantial risk. If more people become aware of the link it may help spare not just millennials, but all generations from cancer,” said Alison Cox, Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK warns being overweight as an adult can contribute to at least thirteen different types of cancers including “breast, bowel and kidney cancer, but only 15% of people in the UK are aware of the link.”

The government must play a part to help people make healthy food choices. We’re campaigning for a ban on junk food adverts before the 9pm watershed to protect young people from advertising tactics which all too often promote fattening foods,” Cox added.

Professor Linda Bauld, Cancer Research UK’s fat expert, said: “Research shows that our evolving environment has a vital role to play in the obesity crisis. Clever marketing tactics by the food industry and greater access to unhealthy food are all likely to have contributed to the rise in obesity rates.”

“Extra body fat doesn’t just sit there; it sends messages around the body that can cause damage to cells. This damage can build up over time and increase the risk of cancer in the same way that damage from smoking causes cancer,” she cautioned.

“While these estimates sound bleak, we can stop them becoming a reality. Millennials are known for following seemingly healthy food trends, but nothing beats a balanced diet. Eating plenty of fruit, vegetables and other fibre filled foods like wholegrains, and cutting down on junk food is the best way to keep a healthy weight. ”

Cancer Research UK is now warning its citizens that the fat millennial generation is jeopardizing the country’s survivability.

Our advice to millennials: Put down the avocado toast and realize your generation is not just fat and broke, but you are jeopardizing the national security of your nation. As we highlighted above, the Venezuela diet is coming to Western countries once the fiat system crumbles. Until then, peak fat millennial is still ahead of us.

Junk food is more addictive than cigarettes or crack. Here is a good experiment for those that want to eat better, but struggle. With a doctors approval, go on a 2-3 day fast. Water only. If you cant do a straight fast do a juice fast. When the fast is complete eat the cleanest most bland miserable meal you can imagine. Plain egg whites with brown rice and a dry salad is a good one. That fucking meal will be the greatest tasting thing youve ever eaten. Ive done it.

It's the parents fault but also the FED...

 

In the 80's Mothers had to start working instead of homemaking and taking care of the kids, kids grow up idolizing tv, internet, and games because they are alone at home after school while both parents work.  Of course there is junk food for the kids to eat when they get home, then they sit on their ass.  Why do both parents have to work?  The dollar and the FED.

smartest my ass - I think they are the dumbest. I've met a few millenials while I lived in San Francisco  - not bright at all in anything - most don't even know how to water plants . The most degenerate generation of all times probably. They are jealous of their best friends -kind of autistic in many ways

They have to both work to keep up with the Joneses next door.  To be able to afford that new BMW, take that family cruise, and buy all those shiny objects at the mall (now, online).

We made a decision early on that our family would be better off with my wife running the house full time.  She drove an old beat up Toyota while her friends were buying the fancy new cars.  We took brief weekend vacations, staying in inexpensive cottages.  We bought an older ranch style house while our friends were building big ones in the suburbs.  We never had 15 minutes of trouble from our son, who was kept busy and well supervised, while our friends wondered why they had so many 'issues' with their kids.  They thought we were sacrificing, but we never felt that way.  It is all about priorities.  Parents have responsibilities.  Too many shirk them.

"

blame the Boomers

most entitled

free shit demanding army ever"

I really dont know. This boomer was out of the house and independent at 18. No foodstamps, no welfare, Bought and paid for my own vehicle.

Now, I still support my youngest at 30. I supported my mother in her old ag, two wives and three girls. Now, unless I become a crypto millionaire, I think I will die before I get to retire. I have enjoyed my life very much, but I certainly dont feel privelidged 

I heard on the radio the other day 

" We deserve free condomns"

We certainly didnt kill Kennedy or Martin Luther KIng 

We also stopped the Vietnam War. Is this generation doing anything like that with their safespaces?

Iran-Contra?

9/11? 

Iraq?

Afghanistan?

War on Drugs?

Zionism?

Wall Street deregulation?

QE? ZIRP? NIRP?

Bes, you are correct. It just kind of hard for me to think of Wolfowits, Bush, Cheney and Colin Powel as baby boomers.

If they are I would like suspend their membership. 
 

But my point really is that the downslide began before, right after WWiI( which is when we started appearing on the scene)

The downturn, as I see it, began with Allan Dulles using the CIA to destroy democracies, institute Fascist regimes and kill JFK RFK MLK. The boomers that you mention flowed into that, I guess. I do agree its a mess.

exactly

The Powers That Be used the World War 2 generation and their children recently finding themselves in an America that had become a true super power (unbroken by war) and recently out of the FED created Great Depression

desperate to never go back to that old circumstance, they fell into the Oligarch's grasp

and were promised the world.... quite literally..... for their loyalty

Bes, I did a little homework:

Boomers 46-64

Bush 46

Wolfowitz 43

Rumsfeld  32

 Cheney 41

Rice 54

Rockafellar 15

Reagan 11

Weinberger 17

North 43

Zionism was begun late ninteent century, Balfour Declaration 17 followed by Versalle . Creation of Israel is just the masterpiece

FED created in 1913

Wall street deredulation also has s long history

Bill Clinton 46

Hillary Clinton 47

McCain  36

Gingrich 43

Trump 46

------------------ sa

If we changed the boomer range to 47-54 few would be boomers. Even at that I think the majority are not.

 

 

Moreover, I would like the address what I think is your real assertion Are you not really trying to say that it was the prevalent boomer culture?  That I could amost believe. The 60s was the beginning a big "me" self discovery thing ( I remember my father saying he had no interest. He just liked to work), jack Kerouac and all (Kerouac 22) , and I think that did morph into the bigger houses, identitifcation of your self esteem with the type of car you drove. That may be true. But  I could also assert that little of those events you speak of were made by the population. This country is run by CFR, CIA, Goldman Sachs, MIC, Media and Hollywood, not the sheeple chasing their orgasmic identities. and I suspect, much like my list below, the primary perps were the 

Post War Cohort 28-45

Mustafa,

I am sure you would agree that

all these generational definitions are arbitrary, and each blend into each other along a spectrum. 

Are you not really trying to say that it was the prevalent boomer culture?...

This country is run by CFR, CIA, Goldman Sachs, MIC, Media and Hollywood, not the sheeple chasing their orgasmic identities. and I suspect, much like my list below, the primary perps were the 

Post War Cohort 28-45

Yes, and yes.  I think we are describing similar things in different ways. 

the post WW1 cohort (young during the Depression and WW2), and boomers (their kids) were willing to go along with anything

to never be subjected to another World War or Great Depression (which were all deliberately manufactured)

and so fell into:

consumerism, mass incarceration, prescription addiction, ecological destruction, pollution, obesity, the sacred MIC, overseas war, neocolonialism, and deregulation of all monetary systems

Bes, I think the only weak point in your post is that,

since Americans basically sat on the sidelines in both WW, namely, we lost few civilians and minimal military casualties compared with the millions lost by the main participants, I cant really see how we  were adverse to that. I think it is quite th opponsite, that we got conned into thinking that we were so good( Patton won the war, vs the russians) that we could make the world safe for democracy. Your argument on the depression is sound.

Perhaps it was both. 

I would argue that Americans were quite aware of the carnage happening overseas, the death, misery, and violence was in the news and the soldiers witnessed a lot of it.  And the Depression was definitely something America suffered through first hand.  

and at the same time and equally valid

Yes, the WW2 win, and super power status lulled Americans into a sense of superiority and "exceptionalism".....

and America, being steered by the "Deep State" of its time, could do no wrong....

they have technology but socially they live in a Dark Age where even a memory of how humans should interact, collaborate, have fun, share and have meaningful lives is gone. 

they are not confident because for that you need to have lived in a meaningful social context (lots of interaction, playing with others, experimenting, failing, earning from your own mistakes etc)

Generalizing doesn't lead credence to your argument. I was born in 1962 so technically I'm a boomer and haven't received free shit ever. If you were born before 1950 I see that argument being made as it was these assholes that dominated the culture in the 60's when this shit went off track.  Don't include me in this shit. I'm still working and been doing so since 1974. I have 2 degrees that I paid for myself and in 35 years of working post college, I've collected unemployment a total of 8 months.

Exactly, it will break a poor diet habit. I do it about once a month, or anytime my sweet tooth starts getting the best of me. I do the juice fast though. I cant function at work with no nutrients. The funny thing is you will be starving stomach grumbling like crazy and in 30 minutes it passes and your not starving anymore. It also makes you feel great. More energy and strong.

Water fast is a bit dangerous for someone unhealthy without having top notch kidney function and good elimination. Raw juice fast is better. I had severe asthma for 30 years. After one year and 4 raw juice fasts ( actually did one for 2 1/2 weeks until I hit a fasting crisis which was the cue to stop) I was TOTALLY cured. Never had an attack again. Mr was simply blown away having had to endure many nights speeding me to the ER when I was turning blue. He told everyone he knew that had asthma to do what I did but none were interested. They'd rather suck on their inhalers. My doctor didn't give a rats ass too. You're just in remission, it'll be back. It's been over 10 years so they can just keep handing out the pharmaceuticals to those who aren't interested in exploring any other options.

Thats great congratulations. Good call on could be dangerous for some. I edited the post to ask a doctor. 

My wife has an autoimmune disease and the side effects would come and go. Some days fine some days so bad Id have to carry from the bed to bathroom. She keeps fresh juice in the fridge now. She juices 2-3 times per week for a couple years now. What she has cant be cured, but she has eliminated all the negative effects.

I did 10 days once. It was brutal. Now I just have 1-2 glasses a day along with meals and a monthly 2-3 day fast.

I only mentioned it because I was consulted by someone who had a lot of experience with fasting and he said he no longer recommends water fasting except in a small set of people who are very healthy. He said there is a great risk of auto toxicity because most people today cannot properly eliminate all the garbage. He had several people have severely swollen legs indicating kidney problems though drinking adequate water. He scared me enough not to try it because I knew I wasn't in the small set to which he was referring. 

 

My husband has Myasthenia gravis so I know what it is like living with someone with an autoimmune disease. He is doing much better now we have completely eliminated gluten and stuck to a paleo type diet. Also CBD oil has been a godsend though terribly expensive. Now I must get his steroid level down! Every time we try his symptoms come back. I'm hoping the CBD oil will help during this next attempt. Consider this for your wife.

Miffed, Mon'Amie - I will recommend that you go purchase CBD "flower" by the ounce and make oils or butters yourself. If you make butter, you can make cookies.  :-)

Making your own oils and butters will not only save you a ton of money but also give you way more of the stuff than buying it at the store.

Instructions for making your own oil:

https://redstormscientific.com/make-cbd-oil/

If you want to make butter, grind that stuff up and use low heat in a double boiler method (pot of water providing indirect heat to a pot of butter melting and infusing the cannabinols from the flowers).
