The thing that Keith did, where he ate what he perceives as healthy food all day and then binged at night

...that's one of the reasons why diets don't work.

That's not just a personal screw up or lack of "will power", it's biology and psychology at work.

That's the most common response to restricted eating (dieting).

Its sometimes called a restrict-binge cycle. Some people are able to hold out in the restrict phase longer than others (weeks, months, years).

When the binge happens it is often way more calorie dense than if you had just eaten whatever it is you wanted to begin with. Resulting in weight gain...which triggers you to want to restrict (diet) again...etc, etc

True. You can only restrict so much. Than it's over especially in the evening.

This is great on many levels. Fresh veggies, low cost, no transportation needed and it's fun to see them grow.

While listening to this episode all i kept saying is that none of this has to do with being black or white and white privilege. This is a class issue. Which is why white people and minorities can relate to this conversation. Because typically with money you can get access to better healthier food. Now that does not mean that because you have money means you won't be obese and make poor food decisions BUT you will likely know but just choose to do otherwise. And yes we can say which race primarily occupies the middle to upper class but that distinction doesn't matter in this argument. Just look at the stats of who is primarily on welfare - (lower class), white people. So it is safe to assume that these people lack income, are lower class and lack access to healthy food. A class issue.

We should also note that another reason why people don't learn about their bad choices is because another thing that comes with the lower class is lack of adequate healthcare. If they were steadily going to the doctor annually like privileged (not white privilege)people are then they may find out from blood work that their numbers are out of whack as a result of their poor eating and their weight is too high. In that convo alone they will get some education from their doctor.

All in all i really think this is a class thing (specifically about not knowing what is good for you and not good for you).

Jemeira I think you are right. And I believe that often black people and other poc have less possibilities and therefore they tend to belong to lower classes. But everyone in lower classes has this problem.

Well this might work for America but not for countries with no or close to no POC. Our lower class is made of people with no education and is pretty white.

exactly!! What's interesting is i was raised in a single parent household all of that jazz. I would say we were upper lower class LOL since my mom worked and we had insurance. But we were definitely living a low frills lifestyle. I hadn't even thought of this in my previous comment but we actually started eating healthier by way of my insurance/doctor example. We were eating fried chicken and all of that then one year for a physical it came back that I had high cholesterol. From that day forward chicken was always baked and the skin removed. i'm a gotdamn adult now and i eat the skin! lol and my blood work is fine LOL
