ONE CAUSE OF OBESITY EPIDEMIC IS

NOT THAT WE EAT TOO MUCH BUT THE

WRONG KINDS OF FOOD.

MORE THAN HALF OF CALORIES COME

FROM ULTRA PROCESSED FOODS.

LORIE JOHNSON TELLS US WHY THEY

ARE SO BAD.

REPORTER: SHOCKING RESEARCH

EXAMINING 10,000 AMERICANS

REVEALS HOW MUCH OF OUR DIET IS

MADE UP OF SO-CALLED FAKE FOOD.

NEARLY 60% COME FROM ULTRA

PROCESSED FOODS AND OF THAT, 20%

IS SUGAR.

STUDY ALSO SHOWS AMERICANS GET

LESS THAN 1% OF CALORIES FROM

VEGETABLES.

ULTRA PROCESSED FOODS CONTAIN

FIVE TIMES MORE ADDED SUGAR THAN

NON-PROCESSED REGULAR FOODS.

IN FACT, ALMOST ALL THE ADDED

SUGARS WE CONSUME COME FROM

ULTRA PROCESSED FOODS.

THEY ARE ONES THAT HAVE ALREADY

BEEN MADE, FROZEN DINNERS,

BREAKFAST CEREALS AND SNACKS.

THEY CONTAIN A LONG LIST OF

MYSTERIOUS INGREDIENTS DIFFICULT

TO VISUALIZE AND PRONOUNCE.

HEALTH EXPERTS SAY THE SUGAR IN

ULTRA PROCESSED FOODS, ADDITIVES

AND PRESERVATIVES LEAD TO

OBESITY, DIABETES, HEART DISEASE

AND CANCER.

SOLUTION IS GAINING CONTROL

OVER THE FOOD.

MICHAEL MOSS ISN'T SURPRISED

AMERICANS KEEP COMING BACK FOR

MORE OF THESE FOODS FROM THE BIG

COMPANIES.

THEY GOT BIG BY MAKING

PRODUCTS THAT ARE UTTERLIER

RESISTIBLE BOTH IN TASTE AND

ULTRA CONVENIENT THAT WILL SIT

ON THE SHELF AND WAITING AND LOW

COST.

DON'T FEEL BAD IF YOU CAN'T

STOP EATG THEM.

THEY SPARE NO COST.

FOODS THAT REACH THE PINNACLE

KNOWN AS THE BLISS POINT.

TASTE AND TEXTURE, SOMETHING

THEY CALL MOUTH FEEL.

THOSE CHIPS WILL COMPEL YOU

TO EAT MORE BEYOND WHAT YOU

SHOULD.

HEALTH EXPERTS SAY THE

SOLUTION IS SIMPLE NOT EASY.

JUST SAY NO TO DELICIOUS, CHEAP,

AND CONVENIENT ULTRA PROCESSED

FOODS AND EMBRACE WHOLE FOODS,

ONES WITH NO INGREDIENT LIST

THAT YOU'LL FIND AT THE GROCERY

STORE AND PREPARE FROM SCRATCH

AT HOME, LORIE JOHNSON, CBN
