Very good points and great blog. My husband and I have started walking to work (about 1 mile one way) least until it gets really cold. But we're trying to change our ways.

worse stigma of the weight loss phenomenon today is all the weight loss hustlers out there (read, con men) who are trying to cash in.
Slim Slippers--how to lose weight through your feet by way of reflexology and magnets--caffeine-loaded sun screens--even caffeine-saturated tights. The list of such zany scams goes on. Endlessly.
