Antiobesity: Good Nutrition and Exercise

Willing to contribute a little in the fight against obesity, specially in the U.S.A. I want from time to time to include encouraging stories of real people overcoming severe obesity.

Consider it as a praise of Intelligent Design for an amazing human plasticity to the point to reshape our bodies and minds.

The first and foremost example is that from Arkansas R. Governor Mike Huckabee.

The video of his transformation can be seen at:
