But I think we need an immediate course correction!
I was out biking around town today. It was a beautiful day, the temperature was about 75 f, the sun was out, there were a lot of people on the street. about one out of every three people I saw today was overweight, about one in seven was obese. It was downright scary to see what we are becoming
This is what Humans are meant to be...
(notice the ongoing laughter?)
But this is what we are becoming
It's kind of sad really.
I ran across a book a little while ago which I found to be to the point on this subject. It's called "The End of Overeating" by David A. Kessler, MD. If you have ever wondered how we have become the fattest nation on earth (we even make the Saudis look thin) this is the place to start.
It even has some constructive suggestions on what to do about the problem.
It is worrisome that so many of us have become disconnected from our bodies. Personally I find it the obesity epidemic to be scarier than global warming.
