Striving for Health- Some facts about weight loss and exercise

Tips, tricks, and plans to lose weight hits you in the face almost wherever you go. They're splashed across every magazine at the checkout counter, in many commercials, on the news headlines, and featured on almost every page ad on the internet. Yet, we are by far the most unhealthy we have ever been here in the US.  As a whole, statistically there has never been such a wide divide between what our waistlines look like, and the people we Photoshop, and edit onto our magazine covers.

I don't want to make this into a big political piece about how the fashion, and beauty industry is taking advantage of us, and making us feel ugly to buy their products. To some degree, I think they are, but what I would rather focus on is being healthy. It's not healthy to be overweight, or to be normal weight, but with a high fat percentage. This is a fact.
