Fighting the Bulge One Nutritional Fact at a Time: Helping Houston Texans Fight Obesity by Eating Smart

The apparent change in the eating habits of Americans has truly taken a toll on general health, well being, and longevity. Obese and overweight issues have caused increased concern on an international, national, and local level. The co-morbid conditions associated with obesity and overweight are equally life threatening and quite costly. Houston, Texas is definitely one of the many densely populated cities in the country that is experiencing the bulge. The detriment of poor food choices can be combated through the use of nutrition menu labeling. Other large cities and even one state have mandated the use of nutritional facts to fight the bulge. The intent of this presentation is to develop awareness and begin talks of a plan of action to place nutritional facts within the menus of common eateries.
