Pill for Obesity...Are we giving up that easy.

So here we are near Atlanta and its late February and the weather is great. Highs in the 60's and some days even in the 70's.  I was already thinking about how its great to have nice weather this time of year when it is still usually cooler outside.  Give the kids and even some adults the chance to get outside more and run and play and exercise.  Isn't that what having nice weather does to people, makes them want to go outside and do something?

Brings me to the article I was just browsing. US Advisers back experimental obesity pill ? Really, is this what we need?  More pills?  I can go off in so many different directions regarding this.  The government is going to make more money off an obesity pill.  I know there might be some people that may need a pill for obesity, but seriously are we not just giving people the easy way out.  Will some obese people not even try to get healthy on their own. Eating better and exercise. What if they are obese from another medical condition and this pill has a bad side effect that harms them?

We have pills for everything. Some people take pill,  just because they are told to take them and they never do any research on them. Why do we let doctors and government officials take control of our bodies and what we put into them. I still cant get over it, an obesity pill. I am by no means near being obese so I cant speak from first hand experience but I have seen obese people at my gym work hard and lose weight.  I have seen obese people eat better and lose weight.  I have also seen non obese people take pills and weight loss supplements and get sick and sometimes die from them.  Do you think the trainers on the show The Biggest Loser are in favor of a obesity pill?  They work hard to get those people in better shape and live a healthier lifestyle. In a natural way.

I think the biggest point I want to try and make is about children and how this may affect them in the future.  Who is this drug available for?  Kid and adults?  Just adults?  Is this going to make it OK for kids to just sit back and become obese or stay obese and then just pop a pill for it.  Will parents of obese children just let them take a pill and not even see if there are any other problems the child has that is causing them to be obese.

We are already living in a society that has the biggest obesity problem ever.

In my opinion this pill is making it easier and giving people the easy way out.

Lets not fall back on drugs. Lets not let pills take over the role of hard work and effort.
