75% of Americans are either overweight, obese or morbidly obese. There is a simple solution, it just takes will power.
My wonderful partner lost 40 kgs (88.2 pounds) over the last year, this is what he did:
Stopped eating the following:
Increased eating vegetables and fresh meat/fish.
He also exercises regularly.
This all takes will power - and most of us simply don't have it.
