Click on the slideshow and watch Kentucky, the South region, and the “Bible Belt” area as they grow more obese over the past 3 decades. Its really sad, now children are infected with this Obesity disease
Any suggestions for helping the children’s future?
- overall standard of health
Setting health standards will directly effect the learning and productivity opportunities our children will receive by presenting themselves as distinguished individuals.
Talking about no child left behind, no child should be malnourished and limited in physical activity. Under stimulated kids loaded on sugar with pent up energy is asking for trouble. Blood flow does a body good. Let the stress out.

I live in KY, the frontline in the War on Poverty in America.
My belief is that for this state to make a turnaround we have to focus on women and children. The percentages of low birth weight babies, children in poverty and children in single-parent families has increased over the past 10 years in KY.
IMHO, everything in the past 50yrs has failed us to a certain degree. Our education system, our industry, our healthcare and “common wealth” in general have all produced a state that is the lowest in every major statistical category. We are poverty in America.
- respiratory problems
- difficulty feeding (malnourished, dehydrated)
- vision problems
- behavior problems
- learning disabilities
- mental disease
- also linked to obesity and diabetes
Kentucky has one of the highest rates of women who smoke during pregnancy. About 30.5 percent of Kentucky women who are of child-bearing age smoke. Smoking while pregnant leads to low-birth weight babies.

I believe that teaching and motivating Bowling Green is the answer to Kentucky’s own health crisis. By taking charge and inspiring individuals to be responsible for a standard of health, My hope is that in 10 years (2020) Kentucky will separate itself from the current Obesity epidemic that it faces.
- cook more healthfully and seek out fresh fruits and vegetables
- reduce sodium intake to 1,500 milligrams per day
- cut back on sugary sodas and beverages
- eat less saturated fat
- eat more seafood and low-fat dairy products
- 2hrs of physical activity week for adults and 1hr a day for our children
My goal is to motivate you to motivate someone else not by what you say, but by what you do. That is my mission, my purpose to teach exercise science so people can learn to burn body fat and get toned with ease .
Can you motivate someone to lose weight and get toned?
All of us can, if you will.

I believe that motivating people and business is the answer to our Kentucky’s own health crisis. My goal is to help educate and separate our state from the current Obesity epidemic it faces by inspiring individuals to be responsible for a standard of health.
I believe if you lose 10lbs then Ky will be a healthier state that’s WHY!!
All of Us can if You will.

(from the Bowling Green Daily News)
House Bill 52 – which aims to reduce obesity and improve body mass index in children. A bill in the Kentucky House that mandates 30 minutes of physical activity be set aside each day for schoolchildren does not have the support of local education officials.
“I’m not in favor of it,” said Mike Wilson, a Warren County school board member. “I think we do a pretty good job of tracking food and nutrition anyway. It causes problems for us when Frankfort comes out with something like this. While it is well-intentioned, they don’t realize the impact it has on the districts.”
In KY county schools, 54 percent of elementary schools are meeting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s target for recommended physical activity per week. That means 46 percent do not. NOT ACCEPTABLE!!
What kind of hope can we have for our children if school board members are not helping to make a difference?
30 minutes activity and this guy says NO!!! aaaaarrrrrrgggghhhhh are you kidding me Mr Mike??
How can I HELP if you’re not going to???
