How to Stop Giving Away Your Health For a Doughnut!

As I write this article, 65% of American men and 62% of American women are overweight. 22% of our children are overweight and 0% of them are obese.

We tell them that if they eat all of their dinner they can have dessert. What are we as parents thinking? This has gone on for generations and I have no doubt that it will go on for many more.
