We get it. America has an epidemic of obesity. As a country, we are fat and out of shape. We’re aware of this, but hey, we’re busy.

For those who want to change, there are tons of ways to trim down and eat healthy. For instance, May is National Physical Fitness and Sports month. You can choose to follow the Federal Activity and Dietary guidelines or you can even participate in First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” program.

But if you’re anything like me, the only arm curls you’ll do is when you lift a comforting, convenient, fatty food to your mouth. They don’t call it comfort food for nothing!
