Realize the word FAT and its meaning has changed within the culture and how a person learns to emotionally value fat levels has changed compared to 100 years ago. Fat was never a problem in the past, in fact having fat was viewed by the culture as a sign that you where rich and belong to the higher social class within the culture. Having fat was sign of health in the past, for it was very hard for a person to have enough food to have large amount fat on your body. People had to deal with hunger and starvation that was normal for almost 1000 years in large part of the world. For there was no real super markets around and fast food place on every corner.
The culture ideas was about how to get food and how to value it and if you become fat that was good. Realize the culture idea of fat levels on a person never exist as negative up to 30 years ago to any great level. Realize there where no ideas about managing fat level within this culture therefore how to look at your food intake has no real culture form unlike some other culture. Knowing how to eat your foods and types of foods is a blind of culture and personal leaning.
Example parents where saying back in the 1950’s to the children “clean your plate, there are starving children in the world” so appreciate, you have food and eat it all. Great idea to teach when food was very limited and you have to eat what ever you can get otherwise you may not get food until the next day or week. There was a time, not that long ago, there was question if you where going to get food the next day of any amount so what you eat today had to last you through the week until you get food again. In the 1930’s food in places in the this culture was hard to fine and so in the 1950 was a reaction to the facts of valuing food being taught to there children was to get as much as you can and eat it all. Diet in the past was for the sick and old and there was books on food for health but not for fat management or weight control for the culture to provide foods when way up and at a low cost.
Events change, and in the 1960’s fast foods started and big grocery store were common every where so access to food in large amount became ease and very affordable.
