Getting FATTER by the second

Our country is getting fatter by the second and I know a lot of people feelings will get hurt when you start too have a conversation about weight.

The truth is that our country is getting FAT. Our country has become so sensitive to the simplest conversation and just speaking about the truth of  Obesity, you will be blasted that you are fat shaming a person. I’m not saying that fat shaming doesn’t happen but what I am saying, if weight is not an important issue. Then, why do people spend billions of  dollars spent on diet aids, fitness videos, products & supplements and everything else under the sun. If people say “Don’t listen to them they are #fatshaming you”, love yourself just the way you are.  Then why do brides & couples go on a weight loss journey before their wedding? Why are there show such as The Biggest Loser, My 600lb Life or Dr. Oz and countless other shows encouraging weight loss. So, if obesity wasn’t a problem facing our country why is so much money wasted on the next best diet pill/supplement.

You can’t out beat a healthy diet & exercise

In an article by Paul Bedard with the Washington Examiner states that life threatening obesity has become a worldwide epidemic and continues to indicate the 711 million are overweight around the globe are obese with Americans in the led.  YIKES! I had to re-read that, just jaw dropping. A  recent study by the New England Journal of Medicine finds that American children & adults are the leaders in the war on obesity.

Under President Obama’s administration, the first lady Michelle Obama implemented the “Let’s get Moving” campaign but that just wasn’t enough and I personally didn’t find it to be an affective program. I have a child in school and the food that is served is gross. Now, my daughter does get lunch at school sometimes because there are a few items that she does like. However, the program was not implemented the correct way, if are on Instagram, look for the hashtag #thanksmichelleobama of the students posting photos of their lunches. Not to say this wasn’t a good idea, it just wasn’t gone about the correct way in my opinion. I agree changing up the vending machines to have much better opinions to choose from but taking them out completely isn’t fair and if the schools own the vending machine that is one avenue of revenue coming into the school.

In addition, was the lunch menu taken into account of the athletes that need high calories that they look to get from their lunches if they have sports practice that day. Also, did they take into account the children that are from low income families or children that get free lunch may count on the high calorie meal that indeed may be one of the meals or they only meal they will get that day.


The article continues to say that US & China had the highest number of obese adults. Can you believe that, China? Why & how does China have a high rate of obesity? Is it because more fast food restaurants are being welcomed and that the people of China are eating more like Americans, that we have food that is so easily accessible. Just a short search around the internet, I found that there are 7-11, Subway, Schlotzky’s KFC & Pizza huts are in China. Could American way of food consumption impacting the food culture of China?

If you have children in public school and haven’t eaten lunch with them, take a day off and have lunch with your child and see what the school is providing as nutritional lunch and see if it’s beneficial for your child. My children took their lunches to school for the most part, their are days that they would have items like pizza or hamburgers that they really liked and I would allow them to get school lunch that day. However, as  my son got older and was in high school, he was too cool to take a lunchbox and I just allowed him to get school lunch. With my daughter going into the 9th grade this year, she doesn’t mind taking a lunch box and she puts her lunch together with me taking a peek making sure that it’s nutritional. In additional, PE has just about been taken out of school. Well, nothing like when I was in school with doing the 50 yard dash, 100 yard dash, arm hang, running the track…etc.


We seriously have a obesity problem and until we can get this country back to just talking and discussing facts, this will continue to be a problem. I haven’t even touched on about health cost that are associated with obesity and then individuals that are obese, want to have the lap band or gastro bypass surgery but I think many people think that it will solve all their problems and I know I’m just touching the surface of this issue. I know that it goes a lot deeper. People deal with emotional eating, traumatic events that happen in their life. But, what I don’t like so much about the show “My 600lb Life”, is that the Doctor tells the person that they have to lose so much weight before they can even get the surgery, my issue is Why not encourage the person to continue losing the weight and if surgery is still needed then they will move forward from that point. 

In addition, if a potential surgery candidate can lose 100 plus pounds in order to get the weight loss surgery, why can’t they go a little further and continue with the weight loss under a controlled diet, like the doctor provides with just getting skin removal afterwards rather that getting the stomach partially removed and skin removal. This is a very complex and sensitive subject but I hope that we as a country can get control of this health issue.
