Comments on: Attacking obesity, one can at a time Our coverage of worldwide events Wed, 16 Nov 2016 10:16:18 +0000 hourly 1 By: KipK Sun, 10 Feb 2013 15:14:40 +0000 “Charity begins at home”. As a physician, I’ve always been concerned about the unwelcomed marketing from the soda giants. Kids (4) in their impressionable years, gravitated towards what was cool. Though we couldn’t avoid this, we indeed made changes in the house where we never bought soda, instead had an electric upright cooler next to the breakfast/dining area. We quickly noticed, kids coming in and out of the kitchen reach out for the water to quench their thirst. For those moments of “chilling after a meal” we had a variety of low-sugar juices. Now that they are adults and on their own, we continue to see their habits do not include sodas. Though we may not be sticks and bones, we certainly are not above 25 BMI.

There is ONE formula to lose weight in a healthy way: eat less and move more.
