I Hate The World's Obsession With Weight

I am sick and tired of the obsession the world's -(especially America) toward weight. 1,025 People

    People are fed information about "fast" &

    "simple" weight loss and it is absolute tripe in most cases. Media (I believe this is the route cause) sells people false packages of stuff that will not help people with their long-term goal or gaining/losing weight. Trying to live a constricted calorie diet of "99cal Fudge...
