obesity in church

FoxNews reported recently that the obesity is actually worst in America’s churches.  Here’s a short excerpt of the article:

“Statistics suggest that the church today may indeed be in worse condition than the general population.  A 2006 Purdue study found that the fundamental Christians are by far the heaviest of all religious groups led by the Baptists with a 30% obesity rate compared with Jews at 1%, Buddhists and Hindus at 0.7%.”  

“Similarly, a 2011 Northwestern University study tracking 3,433 men and women for 18 years found that young adults who attend church or a bible study once a week are 50% more likely to be obese.”

What kind of a message are we sending to people? Be smart and correct this cutting out the processed foods, reduce meat consumption, eat more vegetables and fruits and take care of yourself by walking/exercising EVERY DAY.
