I recently read an article focused around the obesity “epidemic”. As many of you know, Colorado prides itself on being the Least Obese State, year after year. Well, this year is no different. We are still the reigning champs. However, check this out: Our obesity stats this year, as the Least Obese state, are the same stats as the Most Obese state back in 1995. Wow.

Thoughts?

  1. We take Crossfit Junction nationally as a franchised chain. I’m volunteering for chief executive officer up front.

  2. First off, I don’t think that the survey took Mo-town into account, otherwise we would have finished higher.

    Second: Chad, you already have a franchise or two, let someone else run stuff.

    C: This is the FDA mission statement taken directly from it’s website:

    FDA is charged with protecting the public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human
    and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices; ensuring the safety of foods, cosmetics,
    and radiation‐emitting products; and regulating tobacco products.
    Specifically, FDA is responsible for advancing the public health by:
    • Helping to speed innovations that make medicines and foods safer and more effective
    • Providing the public with the accurate, science‐based information they need to use medicines
    and foods to improve their health
    • Regulating the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products to protect the
    public and reduce tobacco use by minors
    • Addressing the Nation’s counterterrorism capability and ensuring the security of the supply of
    foods and medical products.

    So they don’t hate us… so long as we continue to be sick enough to buy drugs and keep big pharma paying big taxes.

    Miss you guys!

  3. always happy to be a team player Chad… Annie= 6:17 to your 6:18 today, as impressed as I am! keep your gym bag :-)

    John,
    I like the post! eyes wide open. but what about food quality? especially for those that don’t have the luxury to afford (organic & grass fed?) where in a busy lifestyle of “NO TIME” it becomes inconvenient to find a healthy solution.
    I try hard to prepare my day with good choices, only to find myself falling victim to the dreaded issue of hunger. Bad choice! Is it really my imagination that our children are taller & over developed? or is it simply that I failed to pay attention to that detail in high school, along with my school work.
    I appreciate the time you spent educating me with the F.D.A. facts & welcome more input.

  4. by the way, here is the USDA mission statement:

    expanding markets for agricultural products and support international economic development, further developing alternative markets for agricultural products and activities, providing financing needed to help expand job opportunities and improve housing, utilities and infrastructure in rural America, enhancing food safety by taking steps to reduce the prevalence of foodborne hazards from farm to table, improving nutrition and health by providing food assistance and nutrition education and promotion, and managing and protecting America’s public and private lands working cooperatively with other levels of government and the private sector.

    Thom, you are right to have your concerns but I have two answers for you:
    1: will you find time to fight the cancer or type 2 diabetes that will eventually take hold of your system due to poor nutrition (and I am not speaking of you specifically but the “global you”). The same goes for the expense of eating this way, my assumption is that one round of chemo or a year’s worth of exogenous insulin is more expensive than all of the good food choices that you make now. They don’t have to be organic or grass fed (our ancestors didn’t have the problems that we do, but you have to start somewhere).

    2: You have a person in your gym who is dedicated to giving you the best nutritional education that you can come by. Amy is a wealth of knowledge and has made it her life’s goal to make sure that you are armed with good information so that you might at the very least make informed decisions for you and your family. I know that we will not always do so, lord knows I love my whisky, but at least I know what it is doing to me.

    3. As far as kids being over developed… I would have to look into that. I have a sneaking suspicion that it will be based on ancestry (i.e. norse folks will be bigger in general, hispanics and asians smaller) and even then I think that our prehistoric ancestors were pretty big. Interesting question though, I’ll have to look into it.

  5. John,
    What a wealth of knowledge, you gave me a lot to think about. I like the views you shared & need to start reading more with regards to this. I am very glad I have Amy & her wealth of knowledge. I have managed to peal 25lbs. off my frame & keep it off with her assistance. Not to mention the fact that I sleep better, feel better & have become stronger in almost every facet.
    I liked your rebuttal to over development by the way. I was really expanding on my opinion more than fact & believe there is validity in your statement.
    Thanks for your time and shared wisdom.

  6. You guys are hurting my head! I say moderation! With a shot of good wiskey every once in a while to cleance the body and soul.
