The current bandaid solutions for obesity
Obesity is a widespread problem in the developed world, it is an abundance of choice that has allow people to overindulge and eat for pleasure. Where the true problem lies isn't the lack of knowledge about food, most people could pick the healthier option between a chocolate bar and apple, but a life time of reinforced bad habits and a lack of will to change.
Should societies, rather than offering gyms and personal trainer, offer mental wellbeing centres or other mental development applications that expose people who want to physically change to harness their will power and build confidence in failing and learning from ones' mistakes.
