And yes, I'm sharing this info with you mostly because I wanted to use this picture.

One of my favorite things about obesity studies is when the television coverage feels compelled to show a compilation of large bellies and blurred out faces. It just seems wholly unnecessary to show me what overweight people look like. I live in America, for crying out loud.

Anyhow, if losing a few pounds around the midsection is of interest to you, try eating almonds instead of cake for breakfast. Snacking on almonds seems to have a very particular benefit to weight loss in your midsection. Eat enough and never see that flabby belly of yours on tv!
