It is in a sense a wonderful adolescence training tool that teaches us to care for one another, be kind and giving to one another, forgive one another, understanding of one another, to become what we used to refer to as being a real human being. What we failed to realize is that it also teaches us that it’s okay and fun to be obese and fat.

To put this in perspective here are some real facts: 26.7% of Adult Americans are either overweight or obese .We have to lose weight and lose it now. And how can we do that you ask?
