Maine just spent 3.7 million dollars and decreased their obesity rate by 1.5%. 1.5% is not a typo. That’s a one point five percent decrease. The program was 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, 1 hour of exercise a day, 2 hours or less of TV a day, and no sugared drinks. If you want to lose weight, exercise doesn’t work. Exercise makes you hungry and makes you eat more. If you want to lose weight, eating fruit doesn’t work either. You body makes twice as much alpha glycerol phosphate from fruit compared to simple carbohydrate, so fruit makes you store twice as much fat. No sugared drinks is always a good thing. If you want to lose weight, you have to limit calories and carbohydrates. There’s no other way.
