Fat Americans

Michelangelo's famous statue, David, returns to Italy this week after a successful 12 week, 20 city, US tour.

Why is it that America is the most health crazed county in the world and also the fattest? There is a disconnect between what we desire and what we see as desirable. It is as if we feel we can get away with cramming our faces with fast food as long as we occasionally buy a new diet book or organic fruits and vegetables when we are at the market. What will it take for Americans to live up to their goals and do something positive for themselves by actually being healthy? Our obesity rate is rising and more gym memberships are sold each year. As a nation we need to actually go to our gyms and stop visiting pizza hut our health is on the line!
