The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Blog: Clones
Last night we were at the movies and saw The Dictator. The helicopter scene was hilarious..tears were rolling down my face from laughing. I try to be “off duty” when away from the office but I couldn’t help but notice a dynamic which was very sad. I saw a gentleman that easily weighed 450 pounds at the snack area with his son. The boy was about 17 and weighed about 240. They were horsing around together and clearly were having a “father/son” fun time. They both ordered the extra large Pepsi and popcorn. The sad part is that I have no doubt that the father will die very prematurely from the co-morbidities of his morbid obesity and I also have no doubt that the son will clone directly into his father, meaning that even though 240 now, by the time he is the father’s age (around 48) he will similarly weigh over 400. Your children may not look like you but in many ways they will clone into you. Behaviors in many forms will be imitated over time. Eating is a prominent behavior that they will take their cue from you on. Early death and suffering is not something you want your children cloning into. Be a role model.
