A colourful post!

What goes round comes around, yesterday it was carbohydrates, today it is protein;last week it was protein and then carbs were back.
Aussies do not know who to blame for our rapidly increasing obesity, but France and Italy are certainly in the firing line!!! :wink:

But possibly the second greatest culprit is the USA - which we have been following faithfully for forty years.

Top of the pops is ourselves - eat too much, flab too much, too many appliances and too many cars.

There - the problems of the world encapsulated in a walnut shell - which is good for you......(the nut, not the shell...)

Nari,

It is a good place to say these things and begin to train our patients to a better life => how to move, how to eat?

I agree, but the dietitians/nutritionists may not be too pleased if we advise on nutrition.

You see, wherever we go in the hunt for better management, we will tread on someone's toes.....dietitians, psychologists, doctors, OTs, even speech pathologists who have taken over management of oro-facial dysfunction here.
Even the multi-disciplinary team is seen as split into neat components (Cartesian) of diets, cognitive behaviour management, the body in general, functional tasks and the Head and Neck, respectively.
Fortunately, we can all share knowledge, (or, in theory?)

That was hilarious!! And we harbour a huge enclave of French speaking sweets loving Canadians in this country! We are chubby in Canada too. We've been swamped by American culture since 1776. We finally managed to get a country together in 1867, with the combined efforts of French, Brits and First Nations. Everyone who didn't want to be an American...

They of course invaded us and tried to exert hegemony over us, many times actually, before we became a country, but we fought them off every time. In 1812 we actually went down and burned down their white house, and oddly they started to back off a little after that. Of course that was prior to the days of Bush... had he been around there would likely have been a slightly different strategy deployed. Also the pasteries were less abundant then, in what would become Canada..

Mostly we keep the US from invading us by mimicing them so closely they don't quite see us as "different", while at the same time discussing them obsessively behind their backs. Sort of national "Grand Rounds"... they seem so crazy.. We never turn our backs on them however because we've always had to share the continent with them and they do like to gaze at our water longingly. (Bit by bit they've invaded us economically until there's not much left that's economically sovereign, in fact huge US companies sue our little ones, and our little crown corporations, for unfair competition. They usually win too, because of how the North American Free Trade Agreement is stuctured. All we've got left anymore are water, some trees.. some snow.. for now..)

Part of the mimicry tactic (to stay safe from their rampages) is to get just as fat as they get. We blend in better that way! Camouflage.
Cheers,
Diane
