Full-Belly Starvation: An American Invention


Can we feel full and be starving at the same time?

Almost everybody is familiar with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s My Plate. The food protocol is mostly very high in calories and extremely low in nutrition. The only good parts are the fruit and vegetable levels, which are high in nutrition but low in calories.

Starvation in America suggests not getting enough food. But starvation is best described as a diet very high in calories while very low in nutrition. This is the American diet as portrayed by the USDA’s My Plate.

The deception is that we are satiated with a lot of calories but starving for nutrition. This is the perfect formula for the conditions that are so prevalent in America: overweight, obesity, heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

We can feel “full” but be starving. This is what we need to understand. Starvation by definition is lack of sufficient nutrition. Thus, we have full bellies but very low nutrition, or full-belly starvation.
