Coca Cola Funds Scientists to Say That Diets are not to Blame for Obesity

If you’ve ever looked at the back of a 2-liter bottle of Coca -cola you may have noticed that 2 liters is 800 calories. That’s more than half the recommended daily calories for many healthy adults, particularly women, and those who protest that is the fault of the person who drinks to consume a total of 2-liter soda in one day be surprised to know the three 20 ounce cokes was at work today account for nearly two very liters.

Now, in a rather surprising turn of events, the Coca-Cola Company is paying money to scientists who say that diets are not the problem when it comes to the obesity. In other words, its about 1,000 calories per day soda addiction is not to blame for their weight problems.

For a long, long time, science has known that the reason people become obese are your options diet (particularly the number of calories consumed) and exercise habits, or lack thereof. No matter what fad diets have come and gone, the simple truth has always been consistent. If you want to lose weight, reduce your calories and start exercising more.

So why scientists – influential scientists – saying it is not the diet that is causing obesity at all? Well, it might have something to do with who is paying for his research.

Indeed, Coca-Cola has given money to what is now becoming a movement, called the Global Network energy balance. The main theme of the message this organization? Increasing exercise, but stop counting calories if you want to lose weight. In some proponent repeating the message actually reads: “count calories causes weight gain.”

Indeed, Steven Blair, the V.P. of the global energy balance Red, he said: “Virtually no convincing evidence that [calories], in fact, is the cause.” It’s hard to believe that anyone but a scientist, in particular, promote this message, but it’s true. What this professor of Exercise (University of North Carolina) Science apparently does not know is that science has demonstrated the relationship between calories and weight loss or gain.

To be fair, there have been a lot of research suggesting that may not be only the number of calories we eat, but the type of food and when we eat can have more a little impact on weight loss. But to say that there is no evidence that calories affect weight loss is gross distortion of reality. It is also bad way to suggest that when Coca-Cola is financing your organization.

This comes after Coca-Cola apparently acknowledged that its sales decline is not a temporary trend -. That will continue now that people are more educated about obesity and its relationship with food

Who can blame them for trying to change the mentality of people? Unfortunately, the facts are the facts, and the fact is, Coca-Cola Classic contains a lot of calories and a lot of sugar, none of which is useful when you are trying to be healthy.
