Which gets me thinking about this other article I came across:
|Source: The Atlantic|
"Fat people know they're fat. They know why they're fat. And they know that being fat kinda sucks."
Maybe it is because I don't want to believe this to be true, but I don't believe this to be true! That means everything that we do in Kids in The Kitchen is all in vain. The most frustrating thing about the article is that it does not pontificate as to what DOES help obese people change their lifestyle. Something must. There are people who turn their life around.....at least 12 people every season on the Biggest Loser! All my volunteering is built on the notion that education CAN help.
I am not the only one who harbors hope that education can assist if fighting the obesity epidemic. My friend Nichole, a doctor, teaches classes about fighting obesity and healthy eating habits. If she believes there is hope, than I will too! I think fighting obesity is about motivation, not just education. I hope that I can make a difference through education AND motivation.
What do you think kids? Can we make a difference in the fight against obesity?
