  •  Obesity isn't just a matter of how much you weigh (2+ / 0-)

    It's a matter of how fat you are, and that's not the same thing.   2 people can be the exact height and weight and one can be obese and the other isn't.  I work out 6 days a week and include weight training and aerobic activity.  In the past year people have asked me how much weight I've lost.  In reality I have actually gained a couple of pounds.  Muscle weighs more than fat, and burns more calories even while at rest.

    I understand what you are saying, and diet certainly is important, but I think the lack of physical exercise in young people is a serious problem.  40 years ago children played by riding their bikes or playing sports, or tag.  Today many sit and play video games.  The body is meant to move.
