Obesity is a major problem, said Huckabee, who has lost many pounds himself. He applauded Michelle Obama’s efforts, saying obesity threatens the welfare of the country. Gov Christie echoes that, saying it’s important to get kids to eat healthy, because then maybe they won’t have to struggles with weight like he has.
Sue also struggles with weight. This is made harder by a corporate food system that is clearly biased against healthy food. Sugar and corn syrup are in everything. Too many foods are laden with fat. Feeling blue? Have some comfort food, you’ll be sure to feel better. For a few minutes, at least.
Michelle Obama’s campaign is a worthy one. We are among the most obese of nations, and it’s getting worse.
Mr. Huckabee said many young people can’t pass the physical necessary to join the military.
That’s sad, isn’t it?
