Last week the American Medical Association announced that they are now labeling obesity a disease. Their purpose is obvious: they can now get insurance companies to pay them to tell patients to lose weight—because now being fat is a disease. If this was delusional thinking from the AMA, I wouldn’t be so fired up. It’s not. It’s greed. CNN called me minutes after the AMA announcement for comment and wanted me to debate an AMA member on the air. I was unavailable, but in the past 5 days I’ve done 14 national interviews on this subject. The good news is most people seem to agree that the AMA is wrong. It’s time for American’s to grow up and take control of their bodies and their lives. If we don’t, the government is going to take control for us. Watch this short video I taped on the subject and I’ll look forward to your comments.
