The Weight of the Nation

Yes, I’m going to be THAT parent who strongly encourages you to watch a documentary on how food consumption and aerobic activity impacts obesity in our country.

Why? Because…
Sugar-sweetened beverages are the largest source of sugar in the diets of children and adolescents.
One in four adults gets no leisure-time moderate or vigorous physical activity at all.
About 46% of adults’ added sugar intake comes from sugary drinks.
In the United States in 2010, over 63% of people are overweight or obese.
The percentage of adolescents aged 12-19 years who were obese increased from 5% in 1980 to 18% in 2008.

The four part series begins tonight on HBO.

Watch it. Record it. Save it.
