Message to Idaho Residents: Forgo Fad Dieting and Join the Campaign for Healthy Weight

Campaign to Visit Boise to Rally Residents to Eat Right, Move More and Milk

Their Diets

BOISE, Idaho, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The last decade can be defined by the ups and downs of different fad diets -- which seem to go in and out of fashion like shoulder pads and hemlines. Yet, long-term success has been slim. Two out of three Americans -- including 51 percent of Boise residents -- remain overweight or obese.
