DailyDirt: Creative Ways To Eat Less

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

A pretty concerning statistic for Americans is that 17% of kids in the US are obese. The solutions to reduce that figure range from getting kids to eat better school lunches to eliminating various kinds of advertising aimed at getting kids to equate food with fun. There are a few other crazy ideas to keep people from getting fat, without trying to eat less or exercise more. Here are just a sampling of such suggestions. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    symbiotic parasites for people... great idea.

    Maybe instead of liposuction, there's some kind of fat-eating parasite we can let loose under people's skin, too.

    Stupid people do stupid things

    How about people just start eating healthy and realize your body needs to burn off calories instead of thinking eating man made, modified foods like the lazy ones do.

    Paleo diet, and just some basic exercise depending on your daily life will do wonders.
