    Schools in Finland are widely recognized as the best in the world. There are many differences between their schools and ours. A close friend who grew up in Finland told me they got 15 minutes of recess every hour in grade school. Apparently they still do it that way and average 75 minutes of recess per day.http://www.takepart.com/photos/ten-surprising-facts-finlands-education-system-americans-should-not-ignore/more-recess

    The point is to eat healthier and exercise more. Doing both is the absolute best way to stay in shape.

    You know, I asked that of them. The reply was that in the sandwich they wouldn't be able to see it, whereas if I sent him in with a huge pork chop they'd see it :roll: I just go with it for now-he's only got a year there to go.

    This is true. However, not all pizzas are equal -you can put veggies on there, use healthier dough....portion control, too.

    And it's not just about dieting to lose weight, just like it isn't just exercise. It's a combination. There is a reason starvation diets don't work, right?
