I personally feel we can target obesity and fix it but we can only do so if the government can offer certain health programs to help individuals facing this problem. After reading this article I can agree that those people who want to loose their weight should aim for loosing 10% of their current weight. We need to change our eating habits and there should be fruits and vegetables that are affordable for people to eat rather than relying on canned goods to get our nutrition from. An average individual who is 5 foot 4 inches and weighs 174 pounds or more is considered to be classified as obese.
Obesity takes a hugh toll on many people and really affects their health. It can give an individual many health problems that can be avoidable if we start educating everyone on proper and good eating habits. Some diseases obesity ca lead to is diabetes, cardiovascular and liver probelms. We need to be able to offer classes that individuals can take to learn what they need to know in order to avoid future citizens from being obese and teach them everything they will need to know to live a healthier lifestyle.
