Many years ago our ancestor insisted that we eat all our food and that breakfast was the most important meal. They were right. Today in 2010 there is not a state in the U.S. that has a plan that has worked to combat obesity in the U.S. We are confused today as to what, when and how much to eat. We often talk about not living in the past, but I believe we have to go back to the basics.
Society has moved to easier solutions to weight-loss, such as adjustable gastric band, gastric bypass, sleeve gastronomy and we have many weight-loss clinics. These are solutions with no permanent results.
The IYP System (investigate your plate) is a system for the whole family. The system teaches individuals to investigate their plate before eating, thereby resulting in conscious and healthy decisions.
