Obesity is an epidemic, but don’t believe everything you read on how to deal with the subject. The problems of weight reduction (and if you need help here is a list of the best diets), can not be so easily solved.
It’s not so much that we eat too much, it’s that we move too little. Entertainment seems to be all about sitting; TV, Internet, movies, even concerts are seated, leaving little room for dancing. The secret is to move around more than you sit, and avoid all the health troubles that may seek you out in a chair by staying on the move as much as possible.
