One of the greatest challenges in today's world is to maintain your weight steady as you age. There is so much food in our modern society that people are dying of obesity instead of hunger like several centuries ago. The famines of today are caused mostly by war, rather than the unavailability of food. In case you did not know, Americans are now the fattest people in the world, and Mexico has become the second fattest nation in the world due to the rising popularity of soft drinks and fast-food restaurants.
The obesity epidemic has been a boon to diet industy firms like Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, and Weight Watchers. These firms assume that you don't know how to eat properly (otherwise you would not be so fat), so they are going to measure the food for you to keep you from overeating. It seems to me that it is not right to abdicate the responsibility of taking care of your own body. We are not children any more. We can be disciplined. We can learn how to take care of ourselves, and we should take care of our own bodies.
It does not take much effort to cook nutritious foods. Two days ago, I baked a delicious salmon fillet. While the fish baked, I steamed some broccoli and carrots. I also boiled some wild rice. In less than half an hour, supper was ready.
 Mexico now the 2nd fattest country, after U.S.
