Here's some stats:

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says that 21% of the American population is obese. In 1991, it was only 12%.

The CDC also said that the number of overweight children aged 6-11 has doubled since 1980 and the percentage of overweight adolescents has tripled!

The surgeon general states that 300,000 deaths each year are directly related to obesity. This is second only to tobacco.

The Goliath Casket Company , a manufacturer of over - sized caskets, has increased their sales of the triple wide model exponentially in the past few years.

Can't we do better?

Here's why:

1. Weight loss is hard. Most people tend to look for the easy way out, and when it gets tough, they quit. Losing weight may very well be the toughest thing many people will do, but it is also the most rewarding.

2. People eat way to much. A Monster Thickburger at Hardee's has over 1400 calories and more that 100 grams of fat. The average female gains weight on 1800 calories and the average male gains weight with 2200 calories. You do the math.

This is why you're fat

3. People don't move enough. The more technologically advanced our society becomes, the more sedintary it becomes.

4. Too many experts. You cannot turn on the television during the day, without seeing at least three ads like this:

So, my simple advise on how to lose the weight:

A. Stop watching the TV

B. Start exercising more

C. Stop eating so much

D. Repeat.

Thanks for reading and have a great halloween!
