Weight of the Nation and Your Family
The following is not a sponsored post in any way. It’s something I’m passionate about. I’m definitely not the poster child for healthy living, but I am working at it, day by day, and hope this may inspire you to do the same.
We all know that we need to eat healthy and eat less, but do we act upon it like we should? What are the consequences for continuing the bad habits we’ve developed? How does it affect us and our children?
Being someone that loves food, I felt that I had a good grasp on what was healthy, what portions were appropriate, and how it affected me and my family long term.
After watching Weight of the Nation (currently running on HBO), I learned that I still had a lot to learn. It’s an eye-opening series and covers a lot of topics – everything from health risks associated to obesity, healthy food options in the public school system, and how our increasing obesity rates are affecting the American work force.
If you don’t have HBO, think about getting the DVD when it comes out at the end of July, and read the book, which is already available. If you do have HBO, set your DVR and watch it with your family – especially your kids. We have to teach them now that there is a problem and what small steps they can start taking to make a difference.
