I LOVE the point made in the Boston Globe article:
"But it doesn’t have to be this way; we can do something about it, and we should start now. How to change these behaviors, which are so often entrenched and driven by financial circumstances?"
That's where SPARKPEOPLE comes to the rescue! :-)
We need to make some MAJOR changes in our lifestyles in this country. Look at the sad results in the statistics offered in this article: news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090701/ap_on_he_me/u
Living a SPARK life offers a solution to the fattening of America! AND it is a wonderful stress-reliever when stress levels are so high due to unemployment, poor finances, etc. Contrary to what we've been "taught" by our media, reaching for that Twinkie TRULY isn't going to help us feel better!
"The reasons behind this nutritional paradox are unclear." says the other article about the fattening of America. They are not a BIT unclear to me! Corporate America is cashing in on us consumers at our own expense! At least that's my strongly held 2 cents...lol!
