    Holly, Thank you for your perspective I ttaolly agree! I was one of those skinny people who was Very Unhealthy and it lead to me being Obese and still Very Unhealthy! I have 100% changed the way I eat and am FINALLY getting healthy, but not losing weight due to some medication I am on. Hopefully I can get off of it soon and lose the weight, but in the meantime, I am learning and doing all I can and from what I’m learning, I think it is URGENT that we teach people about the bad things they are eating the sad truth is that they DON’T KNOW!!! I’m so glad I found this site I think we should help and challenge each other to teach others!
