I am losing my own personal little war with belly fat. Always have! This has been going on for a while now, but like all the minor annoyances in my life, I try to remain optimistic that a solution will shortly be in hand.
It isn’t working. I am starting to sense that something larger is going on here, and that I am not fully in control of my body any longer. Rather, it is in control of me and is dragging me in a direction I do not want to go.
Of course, I am hardly alone in this. Millions of people are losing their own little war with their body. It is an epidemic of the modern age. They willfully destroyed their bodies and cut 20 years off their life span. Couldn’t they see what was happening to them?”
You’d be surprised, but I think it...
