Congress has been hearing testimony on curbing childhood obesity by getting junk food out of U.S. schools. Through my Seattle weight loss program Slender For Life™ I am passionate about putting an end to childhood obesity. My book, Becoming Slender For Life provides families with strategies for healthy living. At Slender For Life™ you learn how to hypnotize with self-hypnosis. Weight loss hypnosis is has proven success.

As I read a Reuters article by Charles Abbott about getting junk food out of U.S. Schools I was reminded that what goes around, comes around. When I was in high school my class stages strikes and sit-ins for 3 causes: 1) To be able to wear blue jeans to school (we won) 2) To get a Coke machine in the student lounge (it showed up the last semester of my senior year) and 3) To be able to go off campus to get to McDonald’s & Burger King for lunch (we got that privilege early in my senior year.)

And, here we are today, almost 40 years later having the PTA and the American Dietetic Association testifying that Congress can fight the epidemic of childhood obesity by getting “junk” food out of school stores and snack machines.

Roughly 17 percent of school-age children are obese, triple the rate in 1980 rate and “an epidemic in the United States,” says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Obesity increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and other chronic illnesses.

I was obese when I was in high school and now that I have lost over 100 lbs I don’t want children to needlessly experience what I did. That is one of the reasons why I am so passionate about ending the mostly preventable epidemic of childhood obesity.
