More good info!

I can't stop finding great stuff! I spend about 10-15 hours each week finding new studies and research, and love to share all the great new information out there. Here's some more:

Obesity is a public health disaster of enormous (pun intended) proportions. The prevalence of obesity in the U.S. has increased from:
• 12 percent in 1991
• to 18 percent in 1998
• to 34 percent in 2006, according to CDC obesity data

A full two-thirds of the U.S. population is now considered overweight. However, in some ethnic groups the rates are even higher, such as African-American women, of whom 78 percent are currently either overweight or obese.

If the trends of the past two decades continue, researchers estimate that 86 percent of American adults will be overweight by 2030, with an obesity rate of 51 percent.

So what is the solution to this epidemic? MOre willpower? NO! It's about retraining our brains! Visit to learn how to bust cravings, and keep posted on this blog for more tidbits and techniques to think like a thin person so you become a thin person without even working at it!
