preservatives and additives in the processed food is unique to western countries as well as huge portions at every meal. in asia most people eat fresh foods and small amounts more often.
From what I've heard, it's not the case in Western Europe except for probably the UK. And here in Mexico, preservatives and additives are nowhere as common as they are in the U.S., though they've been importing some processed foods from the U.S. via the North American Free Trade Agreement. But carbs are another factor contributing to weight gain, which is why I decided to cut bread, pasta, and pizza from my diet.

I'm not on board the carbs-are-evil train. We need carbs for energy. But pay attention to where you get them from.

Also, those who eat any kind of beef are doing themselves a disservice, to say nothing of the poor cow!

^ Not in particular, but I do like soy myself. The form I most often eat it in--tofu--is not really the best way to eat it.
