need to loose weight
Jan 19, 2000

can you give some advice, I am a 28 year old male 170lbs. 5 feet 8 inches tall. Im not sure if this is a problem or not I have been eating a lot of junk food lately (burgers,pizza,chips ect.) and Im afraid that someday it will afect me. My family has only a few caces of overweight relatives. do you think I may be another addition to this portrait. I seldom excersize or workout. could you give me some tips on health foods that will satisfy my cravings. thank you.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Well...if you find the answer to this let me know, we'll publish a book, go on Oprah and make millions.

Self-control (easier said than done of course). Exercise.
