Americans are the fattest people on the planet. Obesity costs this country billions each year in health care, money that could be spent other places. I was fat once and I know how much I cost the government in drugs, diabetic test supplies, blood tests and doctor visits. Being overweight is the root to too many other health problems. If we all lost 10lbs (some of us 50) just think how much healthy and richer we'd be.
Ear less of this!
