This is my weight-loss blog. I hope it's a success!
Started with a nutritionist March 23, 2009.
Total Weight Loss So Far: 13.1 Pounds As of June 15!
Hm, interesting. The market certainly responds to the needs of the consumer. I think a big problem is price - a lot of the kids I work with (low income, etc.) have families who are poor but obese - mainly because fast food is cheap food. Going out to dinner for them is going to an all you can eat buffet filled with fried stuff. I think the other problem is education (and not necessarily just in schools). Because I'm an ex-teacher and a current education director, I say we need more education about nutrition - targeted at people who don't necessarily read a newspaper, or see a doctor regularly, or watch the Today show or 60 Minutes, and who can't afford to join a gym for $75 or more a month or buy $5 garlic at Whole Foods.
