Today we’re going to talk about the fattest country in the world. In this country, the average person weighs 225 pounds. This country also has the highest rate of diabetes. Nauru, a small island in the South Pacific with a population of 11,000, is the fattest country in the world.

The island of Nauru was a rich source of phosphate and quickly became one of the richest countries in the world. When all of the phosphate was depleted from the land, the country went into a deep state of poverty where it has remained ever since.

Nauru’s obesity rate went from 2% to 61%. This was caused by the shift from a traditional diet of fish, coconuts, fruits, vegetables, taro, palm oil, and coconut oil without any grains or seed oils to a Westernized diet of processed foods.

Nauru’s soils have been depleted, so they’re no good for growing food. Over 40% of the marine life has been destroyed by pollution, and nearly 100% of the food is imported. Even water must be imported into Nauru.

Ultra-processed foods typically contain the following three types of ingredients that can cause many consequences for your health:
1. Artificial starches: Modified food starch, modified corn starch, maltodextrin
2. Synthetic sugars: Corn syrup, glucose syrup
3. Highly inflammatory seed oils: Corn, cottonseed, canola, soy, and safflower oils

Seed oils are the only trending item that parallels obesity, even more than sugar! They create nutritional deficiencies, inflammation, and cause you to feel hungry after eating.

    I have been living in Costa Rica for 16 years, I have seen how the population have becoming fatter and fatter.

    They used to eat “tortillas” and they slowly slowly changed to bread. etc.

    • @JuliElisabett on January 26, 2024 at 4:06 pm

      Yes… They just need to be fed healthy fats, butter for example, and good natural foods, and probiotics. Bad bacteria in the gut are connected to obesity, bad oils cause gut dysbiosis. Children NEED to be protected from refined oils, hydrogenated fats, and ultraprocessed junk.

    Hello Dr.
    I am on Keto diet and this is my sixth day.
    This is not my first time doing Keto and intermittent fasting but this time is different. I felt nauseous. I lost my appetite from the second day and I can’t eat anything till the point where I forced myself to eat because I’m working and I was scared to collapse during work. I don’t know what happened or what’s going on with me and my body but I thought that it could be another type of Keto flu. Now I drank a little coffee with sugar and I felt better. I want to go back to my diet but I’m scared to do that again. I really wanna hear your advice.
    Thank you very much 🙏

    I have a question regarding the seed oils being inflammatory and oxidized, does this also apply to cold press chia or flaxseed oils (eco ofc)?
    I was thinking of pressing my own (but not use these for cooking as they handle high temperatures poorly).
