How can a green leaf be turned into a white cube?

Something natural like a plant can’t be patented so the “Pharma Cartel” came up with a way of extracting part of the plant & fooling us all by marketing that we are buying the same thing. There is big money to be made from the Diet Industry & something calorie free was bound to be attractive.
Why are we not aware of how much we eat? … it seems that what we see is more important that what we actually eat. We are greatly influenced by packets, colours, because it’s in reach, because it’s free – nothing to do with hunger.
The bottomless soup bowl experiment contrived by Brian Wansink, a Cornell researcher who studies how we eat, proved that our eyes deceive us. He rigged the bowls with a tube so they continually filled up. It appeared that everyone had half a bowl of soup however those with the unrigged bowls ate just half a bowl of soup but those with the rigged bowls just kept eating…three times more actually!

Do let me know what you think about it… it is the very first one so I can only get better!
It is estimated that 54% of people in the US are trying to lose weight & it’s said that a dieter will try a new plan four times a year…. Weight cycling, as experts call it, or repeated dieting, raises hormone levels which in turn causes you to start putting weight on around your midriff which research has linked to diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.
So why does this happen? Well when you go on a diet & eat fewer calories or fewer carbohydrates, your body goes into famine response. You lose weight from your lean muscle and fluids because your blood sugar drops, your metabolic rate slows down & hormone glucagon is released which burns body
