Iowa Makes Another Top Ten List...For Obesity

Look, there's a reason I talk about getting healthy on the show. I've been at the point where I've tried extreme things, had temporary success, lost my discipline, and considered giving up on getting healthy. But it CAN be done with small changes rather than extreme changes that make you unhappy.

That said, Iowans are still struggling with their health.
