CNN is carrying an article about Memphis. One of the most obese cities (cities with the most obese people, really) in the US.
However, some are taking steps to fix that.
Memphis, most obese U.S. city, moving from fat to fit
Some keys in the article:
- replacing bad options (high fructose corn syrup) with less bad options (fruit juice).
- replacing high calorie, low nutrient foods with lower calorie, more nutrient dense food.
- adding in exercise.
- small changes making big differences over time.
It's worth the read to see how people make these small changes and move forward on getting leaner and healthier. No quick fixes here, just slow and steady ones.
