What's eating at our culture and society that makes this statistic true?


A recent study reported two-thirds of women and three-fourths of men are overweight or obese. Are we so abundantly delighted with life that we, as a society, are eating ourselves to death? Most cultures understand you eat to live not live to eat. Is this a matter of not dealing with issues beneath the surface? Gluttony is a sin. Perhaps with our on the go society, lack of home cooked meals, mcdonalds and taco bell have caused damage to our health as a society? Why is obesity a problem in the United States. Does the mentality of eating till you explode now mirror the norm?

    Thus far, I personally know 5 women who have had gastric bypass.It took a year to finally lose 100 pounds. They looked & felt great for about 8 months. If they opt to have the bypass undone. In 3 months they balloon back up! The moral??
