I've known friends and family who suffer because of poor decisions that
affect their weight, and I've found the only way in my own life to prevent
it is to become educated about my body and live healthily.There may
well be other factors, and it's important to understand them... But in the
end, if I blame anything I can't control, it becomes a scapegoat, and we
have more than enough people wasting resources trying to regulate scapegoats.
If someone would become obese by going out late to eat fast food, limiting
access to that fast food late at night doesn't make them stop and

food industry. If you don't treat each area with equal treatment you are
bond to fail. But again I say, people don't need Food Police. Give them
information and let them govern themselves.
I thought that when the crash started in 2008. Knowing that schools have well
equipped kitchens. Smorgasbord's should be there. Food served at low cost.
Fresh fruit, vegetables and meat. Lunch sacks could be bout to there.
I find it interesting that while the title and the article it is quoting make a
point of showing all of the other factors that lead to obesity, the only
suggestions made for curbing weight gain all have to do with restriction of
fatty foods (which they have just said is not nec. one of the contributing
factors). Why are none of the solutions addressed to the reasons in the
article? Some heavy people already eat much less than many of their skinny
