I live 20 miles east of San Francisco in a very small town. I run a bootcamp in my town and have had success with it. What amazes me is that most of the food choices in my town are less than healthy.
Let's start with Trader Joes, ok so yes it's better than a huge supermarket but it is by no means a super healthy choice. Then there's Chipotle, ok, well I guess that's better than the Taco Bell across the street. Next we have Jamba Juice, do people really believe that JJ is healthy? do they look at the sugar content? Moving on we have Yogurtland, across the street from Yummygurt. Yogurtland charges by how many ounces you yourself pour, in addition to the "toppings" you choose. Does anyone look at the sugar content? Then we have Five Guys hamburger/fries next to a Red Onion, hamburger and fries....NOW we are getting a KrispyKreme Donut shop across the street, you guessed it, from a donut shop. In addition, we have "the ice cream truck" plowing through our community, stopping at our local schools waiting to pounce on the kids once school gets out.
Yet study after study shows the link between Sugar and Obesity....
It amazes me that I live so close to one of the most educated, sophisticated city in the world, yet I live in a town that let's in whomever signs a lease!
