Obesity is Getting Bigger in the U.S.

I found this article on Obesity is Getting Bigger in the United States. I know that is no new news. But I thought the article was interesting because it talked about how we have built our lives around comfort and convenience. Much like I discussed in Becoming Bulletproof

Our society is moving further and further away from what we were made for: movement. Our diets and our inactivity only add gas to the fire. We are headed down the wrong road. We need to move! 

If you have a job that requires long periods of sitting, get up at least once an hour and do some cross-crawls, stretch, walk, or something. Do something. If you drive for many hours at a time, schedule movement breaks every hour. Find ways to schedule movement breaks! If you can perform the Becoming Bulletproof movements, even better! What ever you do, make time to move.
