It does not matter how much health and fitness information you have, the responsibility to take measurable action to make good health a priority is yours and yours alone.
Health is one of the few things you cannot give away.
However, it is your responsibility to develop a plan for your own health.
Whether we are dealing with obesity, Type II diabetes, or any lifestyle induced disease, people cope with health threats differently.
It is the presence or absence of the belief that you can overcome obesity that fuels the act of personal responsibility.
It is human nature to place a higher priority on those things that we appreciate the most.
Whether it is health or education, people will behave more responsibly toward things they appreciate most.
For example, a health report about how to treat heart disease written in 1950 would be obsolete today.
