I know that weight loss hypnosis can help end and prevent childhood obesity, but what do you think about putting a tax on junk food? Time and again I have witnessed both in my Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss offices of Slender For Life™ that hypnosis for weight loss works for children, teens and adults. So, if your children need to lose weight and you know that diets don’t work, then learn how to hypnotize with self-hypnosis. You and your children can easily learn how to do hypnosis and use the benefits of hypnosis mind control for weight loss, academics, sports performance and just about anywhere else in life. So, get your kids out of that hypnosis trance of video games and TV and get them to make positive changes in their life with hypnotherapy. My book, Becoming Slender For Life and its hypnosis CD set can guide you on your weight loss journey.

Maggie Fox writes in Reuters.com that A strongly worded report on child obesity released on Tuesday recommends that state and local governments tax junk food and soft drinks, give tax breaks to grocery stores that open in blighted neighborhoods and build bike trails.

The report from the independent Institute of Medicine and National Research Council also suggests that governments limit television and video games in after-school programs, require restaurants to list calorie counts on their menus and open school playgrounds and athletic fields to communities.

Childhood obesity poses a serious threat to health in the United States,” it reads. The problem cannot be solved by the federal government and communities need to act, it adds.

“This is not a report that says ‘this is what every community should do.’ This is a menu of options,” Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, who chaired the panel that wrote the report, said in a telephone interview.

Obesity rates are soaring among U.S. children, and along with them rates of early heart disease, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes.

“The prevalence of childhood obesity has tripled in just three decades,” the report reads. Nearly 18 percent of U.S. adolescents are obese.

Last week, the American Heart Association took on the $115 billion soft drink industry, saying the drinks are the No. 1 source of added sugars in the American diet. (See: Weight Loss Hypnosis ~ Cut The Sugar Intake)

Taxes work, said the experts on the panel, commissioned by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“The research around tobacco has shown that large increases in taxes on cigarettes has been the single most effective policy to reduce tobacco use,” said Mary Story, a dietitian and professor at the University of Minnesota.

“A 10 percent increase in the price of a sugar-sweetened beverage could reduce consumption by 8 to 10 percent.”

The report also recommends building sidewalks, ensuring schools have water fountains available so students do not have to use vending machines and changing public transport routes so people can reach grocery stores.

It cites communities that have encouraged grocery stores to build in neighborhoods designated as “food deserts,” or that have helped corner stores add fresh fruits and vegetables to shelves now loaded with soft drinks and snacks.
