Once upon a time in America

  1. I agree wholeheartedly with your reasons that we Americans have such a high rate of obesity. I do, however, offer an additional reason: our lives are too easy! We are all driving in to work and our children have never walked miles to school in the snow, uphill both ways. We even have small “robots” to vacuum our homes!

    My personal struggle is with portion control, celebratory (& generally emotional) over-eating, and a dislike of exercise.

    Too bad that magic pill is just a fantasy…

    1. I also agree that most Americans have way to little physical activity. But, I would offer you a thought, since you have been able to realize your weak areas in portion controll, and emotional over eating that could present you a specific goal to work towards in weight reduction. For example, when you go out with friends or family make everyone aware of your specific challenges and ask for help in limiting portions by agreeing as a group not to order an appetizer or dessert.

      And modern medicine is working towards new safe pills for obesity every day.
