    Diets are not the solution.

    Exercise is.

    And it's a damn fine cure for depression too.

    Try it sometime, and you'll see...

    Anyone who is fat and who has the time to work out, needs help.

    Should run a camp with drill instructors...

    •  excercise isn't a cure for depression. (0+ / 0-)

      Actually, most people who try it DON'T see.
      For those with a genetic predisposition to fatness, ore who aren't fleet of foot, excercise increases, not cures, depression. The sense of failure is awful.

    •  Europeans WALK everywhere. I recently returned (0+ / 0-)

      from a 2-3 week trip to France, using Paris as a base. I was on the streets, in subways, taxis, trains, etc. This is not a scientific study, of course, but I can honestly say I didn't see a single obese Frenchman. American tourists? One could always spot them -- they were the people who were substantially overweight and wearing Nike's.
