Now that my kids are going on play dates, my oldest seems to be requesting the Wii and the game Skylander at home. So far, weve been able to avoid console games. However, I suspect this might change shortly. Parents often tell me that their child plays a console game system too much or that it is a source of tension in the household. Is there a silver bullet as to how much console time your child should get?
Statistics from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey suggest that as many as 72 percent of men are overweight or obese (measured as a body mass index of 25 or more). Clearly, there are a lot of men who could stand to lose a few pounds.

It takes a combination of diet and exercise to lose weight, and different diets focus on different methods.
