    Its a shame so many people buy into those lose weight by doing nothing scams these days. I get sick when i see diet pill advertisements. Just take this pill and bingo! you will not only lose weight but also get those washboard abs you always wanted. lol
    Hereditary illness aside, I am a firm believer in diet and exercise to help lose and control weight. Its not easy to stay committed to such a program but if you do you are sure to reap the benefits and rewards of a healthier leaner body.

  4. These are good tips. I still think diet and exercise are the main factors in preventing obesity in kids and adults. There are medical physcholical and addictive factors to consider too, but I beleive for many it isn’t half as complex as many people like to make out.

  5. The reason why teenage obesity is increasing, according to me, is because of excessive use of gadgets and a lack of social interaction. Kids needs to know that they can walk to the store down the street, a car is not really needed!

    Well…. Honestly people need to realize that its just not what you eat you have to be willing to get up and do something like working out or even just going for a walk in the morning this issue is not crucial just something we need to control people need to understand also that eating so much is a sin that can send us to hell. Rthink about those people who are not blessed like us to have food so we need to be able to control our eating habits….
