  • Gerardo A says:

    Nowadays, there are more fast food restaurants in all corners

  • Leslie G says:

    As a kid in the 70’s; a snack was a piece of fruit, soda was special occasions and fast food was maybe twice a year.


      most people were poor back then and fast food wasn’t on every corner, if that were the case you would have ate fast food at least 2 times a week

    • Kenny Michael Alanya says:

      Yeah but I heard the fast food back then was different from today. The ingredients were less fattening and greasy.

    • Connie Erickson says:

      @Kenny Michael Alanya No, actually, McDonald’s French fries were made with beef tallow instead of “vegetable” oil.

  • jatteam says:

    It was in the early 70’s I think when high fructose corn syrup came into the diet…

  • Magneticlaw says:

    And back in the Great Depression there are practically no overweight people, which annihilates the false idea that obesity is genetic and there’s nothing you can do about it

    • Penderyn says:

      Exactly…. You can have more probability than others in becoming fat due to genetics with same diet…..but you still keep reasonably slim

    • TheGreatSalsaMan says:

      I mean we’re in a world wide recession and fast food is more expensive than ever and people are still overweight 🤷‍♂️

  • Fernando Barrera says:

    We used lard (pork fat).

  • Educated Gypsee says:

    None of the food is real anymore

  • JammerTravels says:

    No snacking. No online time. No food delivery. No Facebook n Youtube. More outdoors activities

  • J Z says:

    Glyphosate used in wheat harvesting + more vaccines on the schedule w/ aluminum adjuvants ( amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate [AAHS]) are the two biggest factors in current health problems.

  • Boon says:

    Too much convenience. They didn’t have near as many grocery stores, gas station, and fast food open all the time

  • Sandy What? says:

    100 tv channels, endless internet & screen time, less activity. Endless kind of snack foods, many fast food places now. Back then we had 1 fast food place, Kentucky fried chicken. Eating out.

  • Elliot T Helms says:

    Fun fact. We ate a lot of sugar back then. Guess what. Its not the sugar. Its additives like carrageenan, dies, emulsifiers and seed oils. Not the sugar.

    • Chan Chan says:

      It was real cane sugar! But we didn’t have it all the time either. Our diet today is so awful compared to then. GMO’s, chem additives, “natural flavorings” added. Glyphosate in everything!

    • Dawn Elder says:

      Sugar consumption has almost tripled since the 50s. You are likely remember the home made goodies you mom made. Especially for holidays. Many families did not have desert every night. We didn’t.
      I am from Canada, but if you look at the cookbooks that I grew up with, one the Victory Cookbook from the war years, you will see that the recipes call for way less sugar. Even the ones printed in the 50s and 60s.
      But your taste buds were not use to sugar being added to everything, so to you it would seem very sweet..
      They add sugar to Windsor salt now.
      A chocolate cake would call for 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar. Compared to 1 to1 1/2 cups today.

  • Pema says:

    Momma wouldnt let you ruin your dinner, thats why no snacking. 😂

  • znz1232 says:

    I agree. Nowadays, it is soooooo hard to buy anything without added sugar in it. 😞

  • Jane Gardener says:

    My mother’s idea of snacks was a bowl of fruit. Dessert was jello. Cake was for birthdays.

  • Universal Patriots says:

    Keep speaking the truth Dr. Berg 👍

  • MajiMarji says:

    Plus we did not have a lot of the frequencies going through our bodies either. No internet, only 3 major tv channels. I was born in 1946 and remember. We also played outside.

  • Vinlago says:

    By the time dinner rolled around we were hungry. Not, “I could eat”, I mean hungry.

  • Lemony Skunkketts says:

    I like to garden to have some kind of normality. Food tastes 100 times better from a garden. A garden potato…no butter needed when baked, they already taste like butter. Garden peas and strawberries never make it to the kitchen, that’s the best snack you can have. A big Radish or Carrot will stop your hunger for a couple hours, and the Asparagus raw tastes nutty and delicious. Next to free salad, which grows fast, and nearly endless. Everything is on another level, eat very fresh.

  • End Times - Last day events says:

    Many good comments. It’s more complicated than DR berg says. He is right, up to a point. but it is a combination of all these things. I am surprised no one is mentioning water ! The chemicals, secondary drugs, pollution are major factors. There is also the air pollution.

  • Melanie Simms says:

    I was born in the 50s and a snack mom gave us an orange. She didn’t let us get in the fridge or help ourselves to anything because what she bought was for our meals. We had to have permission. I ate at meal time and never after dinner. We were never over weight! Now that I am older I do eat late and have too many foods with sugar. When I was in my 40s I startes gaining weight and moving less. So now I am having health issues. So my daughter and I are starting a new way of eating to regain our health. We are 20 to 30 pounds over a health weight!
