Obesity as a cultural signal

may 31 2008

Had a long talk with a friend of mine about our idea that forcing people to lose weight isn't the solution to obesity.

It's interesting that in so many countries the numbers of obese people are climbing.

Especially in countries where people are working long hours many people are obese.
Not only those who actually work, but also those who have no work or work at home.

It's a kind of cultural signal, and according to us it can't be solved with courses in fatfree cooking, dietinstructions and fitnesscentra.

What do you think?
