People were so much thinner back then and they still had fast food, soda, ice cream, all the stuff people claim is making people fat. What's exactly different that they were doing that made them so much thinner than modern people? Mentality around food?
America attempted to turn their population I to super soldiers by tampering with their diets to make them grow larger.
They fucked it up and the experiment went wrong.
also people moved around a lot more, like unimaginably more than they do today - gave them less time to eat useless shit mindlessly
I saw a convincing analysis on twitter that showed the introduction of PFAS to be the most likely culprit
Can you give me some advice on how to avoid this shit? Will it kill my gains?
Distill your water. Don’t cook on nonstick pans (use cast iron or steel). Don’t go out to eat. Eat USDA organic or farmers market. Basically, live the opposite of how everyone else is living, in every aspect of your life. That’s what I do and I’m awesome
Food was real. My mom grew up in the 50s and says that grocery stores used to have local beef, chicken, eggs, vegetables. Produce was only what was in season there locally because they were actually getting it from local farmers.
The "fat causes ____ so eat sugar instead" hype hadn't started yet so people still ate real food with lots of real butter and lard, not margarine and canola oil.
Tl;Dr they weren't eating goyslop
Goyslop hadn't been invented yet
>McDonalds founded in 1940
>Hershey founded in 1894
>Coke founded in 1886
>TV dinners invented in 1954
>Cheez Whiz founded in 1953
Try again retard
garden gnomes didn't get their hands on those until later
Spam didn't used to be goyslop. They changed it
it had, but it wasn't the majority of food.
get in a time machine and get mcdonalds in 1945 and tell me if it's even remotely the same to mcdicks in 2023. protip: you won't, so you'll just have to take my word for it.
Even in like 2005 I remember sitting down to play video games for two hours straight and it was like this giant time block to me. Like, sitting in front of the TV for 2 hours was something significant enough to remember. Otherwise I was just playing with my toys or riding my bike at my friend's house or something like that.
Even shooting pool or walking and talking seems like exercise when you compare it to just sitting down for 16 hours
Maybe it's eating out/getting takeout/delivery every meal instead of cooking but what do I know?
Keep arguing over inconsequential shit like macronutrient ratios and microplastics I'm sure you're onto something.

no seed oils
no plastic everywhere
McDonald's fries were fried in tallow, not sneed oils. They didn't have birth control runoff in the water supply, either
(1) Sneeds: Obesity correlates with seed oils, not sugar. The TV dinner in the 60-70s sort of correlates with the invention of goyslop. Even McDonalds used to cook their fries in tallow rather than sneed oils.
(2) Entertainment: There is an incredible amount of screen entertainment today that hardly existed in the 1950's. Meaning people were more active. Kids played outside rather than vegetate in front of a TV.
Pretty much this. If you look at when canola oil started being used in food it correlates closely with when obesity started to rise.
Whilst this is true I can guarantee you fast food places would have been using animal fat and regular sugar rather than seed oils and high fructose corn syrup like they do today.

its the linoleic acid
vaxx saved millions of lives of people with inferior health conditions
There’s no evidence vaccines improved mortality, you freak. In fact the polio vaccine had SV40, a cancer causing virus, in it and likely caused the cancer epidemic.
>Eradicating polio doesn't affect mortality
It didn’t. deaths from polio and every other disease we vaccinated against were declining for decades prior to vaccines.
I note you didn’t reply to the issue of SV40, you fucking tard. You’re probably a manlet lol
Polio cases sharply and almost immediately drop when the vaccine is administered, please look at any graph and notice how it lines up to the exact year
As for SV40 I can't see that any follow ups conclusively proved it caused cancer, but obviously having accidental contamination of a vaccine is bad.
Also feels good to be 6 foot five 😉
Read my post a second time you illiterate moron. I said DEATHS were dropping for decades, I didn’t say cases. And the Institute of Medicine has classified SV40 as a likely causing cancer, you absolute fucking moron.
I am aware SV40 is a carcinogen according to some scientific organisations, and I'm aware that a follow up study couldn't conclusively prove it caused cancer in people after the vaccination. In fact other scientific bodies doubt it's a cancer causing chemical so the status is disputed.
Deaths and cases were both skyrocketing until the vaccine was introduced, in this graph I've circled where they were immediately before it was introduced.
What argument are you even trying to make? Why are you so angry, lol. It's a silly hill to die on
I can't be fucked to do this for every country on earth but the point is that you can
I guess maybe you've been looking at this graph? This shows the death RATE declining, IE, the Polio virus was becoming less deadly, but it doesn't show the number OF deaths. As cases skyrocketed deaths generally increased also.
Finally, I have no idea where this graph comes from but it says that more than 110% of people were dying in the UK which is impressive. To think more people would die from Polio than the number of people with Polio, things must have been bad
sneed oils accounts for virtually every negative effect we know about on our bodies and many more we dont know about
It would be hilarious if people like you were allowed real jobs.
Like somebody comes into the ER from a house fire and instead of giving them oxygen you spoon coconut oil in their nostrils.
I, for one, would pay to see it.

People didn't sit anywhere near as much as they do now
They did especially office workers, but anyhow, they also exercised, a lot more than we did. It was expected of them to be fit by their possible partners and you had to be tough growing up, no pussy mind set.
I'm sure office workers sat a lot but even then, think about it. You're still working with a pen and paper or a typewriter, and they probably had to get up and move documents around more often than modern office workers.
the bigger difference is probably what they do with their free time. Maybe they sit down for 8 hours at work but they would go home and spend their free 8 hours probably not sitting down, mostly.
now, someone sits down in front of a screen for 8 hours at work and then sits in front of a screen for 8 hours at home, or more.
someone who spent their free time sitting and reading after work in the 50s would be an outlier and a nerd
they weren't eating PFA's
Penis Filled Asses?
They ate lots of butter, consumed less sugar and smoked affordable cigarettes all day long.
someone post the ingredients of popular meals then and now
Even though a lot of technologies and arrangements that're familiar to us like cars and drive thrus existed, things were less mechanized in general, like if you wanted to set the lockers on your truck you had to get out and manually do each one, now anything like that on your vehicle probably isn't even a physical button at this point. Cars needed constant servicing, like every time you drove shit had to be adjusted and maintained, you'd either do it or have to go to a service station, and it involved cranking stuff and bending down or reaching under parts of the vehicle. Power tools existed but were like 3 times as heavy as what we have today and even more times expensive, so maybe certain task on a site where it conferred the most advantage you'd be using a skilsaw or one of those giant two handed drills they had but most of the day you were using hand saws and swinging a hammer. Powered lawnmowers weren't common, let alone ride on ones, they used the ones that have blades in a drum you push manually you might have seen. People look at how more people are office workers relative to working in a factory or something and point to that but it's not even that simple, the physical demands even on a guy who worked behind a desk were different back then, and were very intense for someone who didn't
>What's exactly different that they were doing that made them so much thinner than modern people?
Are you fucking stupid? Do they not teach children history anymore?
After growing up in the great depression with not enough to eat, they spent years under wartime rations while they beat the shit out of japs and krauts. So before 1945 there's not even an opportunity to get fat really.
And getting fat takes time.
>fast food, soda, ice cream
Not really though. Your sodas are 6 oz each, and usually split with someone else. People drink soft drinks like they're hard liquor- just a couple ounces every now and again. When 12 oz cans first came out in the 1960s it was enough for "three big drinks for three thirsty people"- shit you'd have for a party. Retards today chug that shit like it's water.
Relatively rare in the 1950s, consumed as a special treat and definitely not 24/7, with relatively modest portion sizes.
Meanwhile people were still doing largely physical stuff for their jobs and for leisure. Older people danced or went fishing and physically moved their fat asses to places to do shit. Kids ran around and played. A lifestyle of barely moving from bed to couch just didn't exist.
They ate less, as far as I know. our portion sizes have blown up. And the "equivalent" foods from then vs. now aren't actually the same. If someone had a coffee and a donut for breakfast in 1955 it'd probably be black coffee and one of those smaller dense donuts. Still sweet, obviously. But your average coffee and a donut today is pretty much guaranteed not to be black coffee and the donut is some homer simpson tier cake donut with sugar glaze and sprinkles. This is just one example among many.
The other day I happened to be at starbucks, now I don't like this company much at all but I was there anyway. I had a plain black coffee and their old fashioned donut which is very different from a krispy kreme type donut. It's still really no good for you, though. But one thing I did notice is that I was the only person who ordered a normal coffee. granted the majority of people there were women but it was very busy and at least a hundred people ordered drinks while I was sitting and watching and not a single one got plain tea or coffee. They were almost all large sizes of really sweet drinks and probably hundreds of calories each.
eating like you live in the mid 20th century is unironically kind of a useful rule of thumb at least compared to eating like you're a goyslopper in the current year.
also they had to move a lot more. now people don't even have to unstick their fat asses from their gaming chair to turn the lights on and off. they didn't spend 8 hours a day in front of computer screens. I could list a thousand things that require less effort today than they used to
this is also a factor, foods have the same general concept but has gotten a lot more extravagant
can you not post that please
Your average meal wasn't 80% refined carbs.
3. Supermarkets were not the Wal-Marts you know, today.
2. Availability of WILDLY sugary snacks was not the mass-produced aisles and aisles you know, today.
1. Soda was not the sugary confectionary drink that people hydrated themselves with. It was a rare treat, and not that sugary.
