Or, simply don't consume as much fats and sugars. Easy to do and tastes good, probably costs less as well.

To be fair many don't find it so "easy to do"

True, I've lived in areas where it was difficult to get fresh, or to cook it, and I noticed the effect.

But shouldn't that be the focus instead of how to counter the effects?

Hey, if you've got the executive functionality to shop, cook and clean up fresh, healthy foods, good for you. Not all of us can handle that after working a twelve hour shift..

I do remember well, and it was a rough time in life.

The problem for me was I didn't realize how serious the problem was until I was out of it. Even now there are many days in which I am barely able to get by, and count on the one dish meal stash I have in the fridge. One day in the kitchen gets me a good meal each day for ten days.
