Let’s start now.
250 million Americans don’t live a healthy lifestyle, and that is my biggest concern. Right now, America is the most overweight nation in the world with 31% of people suffering from obesity. Studies suggest that by 2015, 75% of American’s will be overweight. 360,000 Americans die every year from obesity and its complications.
This must stop. America is the greatest nation in the world and should be the healthiest as well, given all the resources and possibilities here. We are leaders in the world when it comes to democracy, military, and individual freedoms. There is no excuse to not lead the world in healthy living. My charge is this—by 2015, we should be the fittest nation in the world. America wake up, it’s time to be fit and healthy!”
