America Takes on the Challenge to Fight Obesity
Date:8/6/2009

NEW YORK, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report has now confirmed that America is in a national obesity crisis. More than one out of three Americans is obese and it's threatening America's well-being, not only as individuals, but as a country.

The community-based movement is rapidly building momentum and rallying Americans to lose a collective 50 million pounds. This tremendous accomplishment will make an enormous dent in the nation's healthcare crisis.

"America's obesity epidemic requires a multi-faceted approach including individual motivation, accessible free resources, government support, and community involvement," says Dr. Ian, founder and creator of The 50 Million Pound Challenge and NY Times bestselling author of The 4 Day Diet. "No single person can fight this alone; but with free tools and the motivation of each citizen in every town we can provide each other with a continuously growing support network that a million people have already found in The Challenge."
