I am calling for a national debate and discussion on childhood obesity.
The food environment is poisoning a generation of children, and the
environment of blame adds to this issue. Obesity is a very complex
issue , and I am suggesting creating a shift in our focus. Obesity is
not a disease and I hardly think we need to fight it.
is working to promote education. Blaming
the individual is interfering with efforts to improve health,and obese
people are being exploited at multiple levels. I am not a Big Loser,
and that term needs to be challenged. Our children are facing a war
zone ,and no one seems to want to address the real issue.
calling for a change ,a shift in our thinking. You see adult obesity is
hard to inspire a talk, but children and obesity allows for a shift to
take hold . Please add your voice to this cause by doing something to
inspire ,or ignite the conversation. Obesity is more than calories in
and out , more than simple plans,more than weight loss surgery, more
than fitness, more than willpower and a whole lot more than Lifestyle.
Lifestyle has been manipulated to suggest blame without directly
labelling blame .It is a brilliant term, and I think the media needs a
Lifestyle Shift. 90 % of people obtained their information on obesity
from the media, and first response is Lifestyle from a person. Why?
I am calling for a serious examination of this media reporting ,TV
weight loss health crisis. I think we have an education crisis.
Currently the War on Obesity,which attacks the individual may go the
same way the War on Drugs has gone. Let's Move and trade Heat for
Light. We do have a crisis, but how much of it speaks to our food
