MET-Rx Talks Childhood Obesity

 

I've heard it time and time again. "Doctor Whyte, I've been fat my whole life and I've only had diabetes for a year, so it can't be related to my weight." Or "My child is big-boned. He'll lose weight once he starts to grow more. There's nothing to worry about." Unfortunately, we have a lot to worry about as we continue to put on the pounds. We're quickly becoming a country of overweight and obese people. Obesity is a real problem in the U.S. because it's making us sick -- literally!

The scary part is that if you are actually at a normal weight, you're part of the minority! That's a big problem.
