(NBC) - An American obesity report by the Trust for America's Health found there is a bit of good news this year, as fewer states are reporting high obesity rates than in 2008.
However, researchers do note obesity is a large problem in the United States. In most states, 1 in 4 adults are considered obese, adding to an increasing problem of chronic diseases like diabetes.
Officials say they are concerned that as aging baby boomers enter their senior years, it will begin to overwhelm the Medicare system.

I tried making the family go vegan, but DH had a fit - we live in OH and if there isn't a whole cow on the table at dinner people go ballistic. girl, I hear ya.. My family is from Wayne/Holmes County Ohio.... Hubby is from Coshocton (another small farm town) Meat, Milk, and Potatoes...Ohio The Heart Attack of it all!! I have learned to counter the comfort foods my family won't give up for activity. Even if it is challenging the kids and hubby to a sit up/push up contest after dinner. I suck at push ups. But I like hearing my kids root me on!!! :o)
