An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory, but according to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more and more teenagers and young adults are becoming overweight (and the numbers are increasing rapidly).
Overweight in teenagers is generally caused by lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating patterns (or a combination of the two) with genetics and lifestyle playing important roles.
Our society has become very sedentary -- television, computers and video games -- all contribute to inactive lifestyles. In fact, 43% of adolescents watch more than 2 hours of television each day.
The Internet represents an important medium to get the word out and educate in a nice, effective way. We believe it's nice to be important (but it's more important to be nice). That's because the meaning of life is to give life meaning (isn't it?).

Nearly half of American youths aged 12-21 years are not vigorously active on a regular basis. Inactivity is more common among females (14%) than males (7%) and among black females (21%) than white females (12%).
Did you know that only 19% of all High School students are physically active for 20 minutes or more, five days a week? Plus teenagers are eating more and more junk food and not getting enough of the nutrients their body needs. Fast food combines two of our favorite desires: things in a hurry and food (plus it tastes good too).
Risk factors for heart disease, type II diabetes and some forms of cancer plus high cholesterol and high blood pressure, all occur with increased frequency in overweight teenagers compared to their peers with healthy weight.
So let's get to work on it. But remember, delegating work works (provided the one delegating works, too). And one more thing... always remember to smile, because if your eyes are the windows to your soul (your smile is the font door).
