No Obese People in Manizales?
We were just in Manizales, And I was astounded to see huge numbers of sweet snacks
(My favorite is the brownie, which I am sure has tons of sugar) .
I was even more astounded that there were little to no obese people.
I walked down street and I saw no obese people in sight. Why is this? There has to be at least 30 sweets and candy stores, quite a few fast food restaurants and no obese people to be found? Why? Maybe because half of the population is elderly, but
this probably has nothing to do with it. If this was in the US I would be sure there would be tons of obese people, because there they use corn syrup. In most Latin American countries they use A LOT of sugar, which I would think would still cause obesity, but apparently not.
