Worst Soda

#16 Sunkist

(1 bottle, 20 fl oz)

Wait . . . but aren’t all sodas equally terrible? It’s true they all earn 100 percent of their calories from sugar, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still varying levels of atrocity. Despite the perception of  ealthfulness, fruity sodas tend to carry more sugar than their cola counterparts, and none make that more apparent than the tooth-achingly sweet Sunkist. But what seals the orange soda’s fate on our list of worsts is its reliance on the artificial colors yellow 6 and red 40—two chemicals that may be linked to behavioral and concentration problems in children.

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?

KY Gov Beshear’s gets an “F” for failure to lead states in education reform

Great Seal of the State of Kentucky

Image via Wikipedia

Ky Gov Steve Beshear failed to show that Kentucky is making strides to lead the way in education reform on a National level.  Kentucky’s economic and social despair will continue until something is done to show that we are indeed striving to make a difference.  Leadership has to step forward.

Who’s with me?  I believe the difference will come in health reform to make  our children leaders in:

  • nutrition
  • fitness
  • 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.

Some local teachers and school officials are on board with personal health&fitness standards.  Its leaders like these that make nutrition & fitness education a lifestyle change and are motivating the children they come into contact with on a daily basis.
Now thats real reform!

If you know a teacher or school official/employee that sets an example of health and fitness tell them THANKS for me

Poverty – In My old Ky home

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.

Diane Sawyer poverty in Ky get toned

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.

In Kentucky, 102 babies are born with low birth weights, this has many problems

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.

Obesity can also lead to low birth weights because obese woman typically require premature delivery due to health complications of the fetus and delivery.


To prevent low birth weights, women should stop smoking, practice healthy eating habits, and get regular physical activity before becoming pregnant.

Motivate – Get Toned Bowling Green, KY

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.

We should:

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’m Pissed off at everyone

I’m pissed off at everyone.  I’m pissed off at what they say and do.

Everyone says they are going to eat healthy and walk more.

Everyone encourages to conserve gas and oil.

Everyone says they wash their hands before dinner.

Everyone insist you should get a degree.

Everyone pledges they listen to the customer and do what they say.

Everyone knows our Kentucky is unhealthy.

Everyone has an excuse.

That’s why I’m pissed off at everyone.

Every one of you that says something and does NOTHING!!!

Get up, get fit, GET TONED

David Nuckols – Why I do Personal Training

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.

School officials against proposed physical activity bill

(from the Bowling Green Daily News)

House Bill 52which 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???
