Coming from a resident in traning, obesity is linked to many things. I used to be obese my self until 10 years ago, while I was developing Heart disease at a very young age. I tipped the scale at 280 punds at 5'1 at a young age which was extremly unhealthy. I went on the Atkins about 10 years ago and I have went down to 180lbs and I am 5'11. Not bad for all that weight i lost and now i am traning to be a Cardiologist. I have sticked to the low carb lifestyle for over 10 years and have reversed heart disease and diabetes. If it wasnt for atkins i would not be here today posting this in the noetbookforums.
Back to the topic, I dont think desktops and laptops are to blame for obesity as it is a choice to own something. I own like 10 computers or more
That doesnt keep me from doing my daily activities. I still go to the gym and work out 3 times a week and hang out with my Girl Friend. What causes obesity is the rise in carbohydrates and less activity. People on Low fat High Carb diets will witness heath problems in the longterm affect. The truth of it all No diet has been proven safe for long term use except the atkins. No one has a bit of solid evidence to see that it is dangerous diet. Also keep in mind Cholestrol is no an important indicator in heart disease or Heart attacks. Triglycerides and LdL fractionation are the key in detecting Heart disease or Heart attacks.
I think i overdid it a little bit
