Health care reform is all the talk these days …
… but since health care costs are at the top of everyone’s minds, maybe we should instead invest that same money into OBESITY REFORM.

Why doesn’t Congress and the Obama Administration take time out to discuss prevention of this disease? That may actually get us somewhere and make a dent in the iceberg.
Talking about Health Care Reform without touching the prevention of such diseases is like switching seats on the Titanic …
… it’s a losing situation.

Tomorrow we’ll be back with very specific strategies to combat this disease — without weight loss pills, without weight loss gimmicks, and without asking you to do endless hours of exercise .
