Why are more and more people gaining weight?
2. Convenience food outlets.
3. Ready cash.
4. No necessity to work for survival.
5. Food addiction.
Perhaps if slightly overweight people could work at something they care about, their mind would be otherwise occupied. Perhaps joining a charity, working with a local group of youngsters, community activity like keeping the parks clean or reading to children at the library would give another outlook on life.
Nobody can solve someone else's problem. Sometimes, an underlying problem exists—a need for love, low self-esteem, or an even deeper drive—like karma.
"It's easy to say that the experiences in one's life are the result of past activities, but the forces of this law are greater than we may first imagine."
Theoretically, a child who dies of starvation in Africa could be reborn in an affluent society. Unable to control the urge for the food denied to them in their last life; they eat and eat—well past the point of sustaining themselves.
Perhaps if everyone gave this some consideration, they would be well on their way to mastering their future destiny. I can't think of anything worse than being trapped in a fat body with a deteriorating mind controlled by dementia. The cycle would go on in future lives until the person took control of their actions.
Don't reach for that little treat.
