Way back in 2005 I gave a presentation to a group of men and as part of that presentation I spoke of my views of childhood obesity. In this 17-minute audio recording you’ll hear me speak candidly about the roles each of us have in controlling and managing childhood obesity.
- Is it genetics or parental modeling?
- Obesity genes haven’t really changed much – so why is childhood obesity up 3-5 times what it was 20 years ago?
- Should we put kids on diets?
- What’s the likelihood of a child becoming obese if his or her parents are obese?
- What’s the real damage if any to a child who grows up obese? Should this really be a big deal?
- How many fat cells does a lean adult have? Obese adult? Morbidly obese adult? Why would this matter?
- What’s more important: Fat cell size or fat cell number?
- Who has smaller fat cells? The formerly-obese person who got lean or the never-before heavy at a healthy weight? Why does this matter?
- In the Greenwalt home what was our motto about the inmates running the asylum? You’ll like this.
- Is eating healthy a punishment?
- What can we do to help our kids to grow up healthy and normal weight?
