Adult and childhood obesity is a growing problem in the United States, primarily from eating too many calories and not getting enough physical activity. Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Jay Amin of Tustin, California is taking a stand to lead people to healthier, more fulfilling lifestyles.

Dr. Amin has founded a non-profit organization called Fight Obesity Walk. Their mission is to help adults and children with their fight against obesity by applying all contributions toward fruit and vegetable coupons for families, getting sports equipment and bicycles for children and organizing community health and fitness programs.

Dr. Amin says, “We are organizing our 1st 5K Fight Obesity Walk right now. It will be held at Irvine Regional Park in Orange, California on November 10th. People can register online at Fightobesitywalk.org, call (714) 832-3452, or simply show up the day of the event. Registration begins at 9:00 am. Vendors will be on hand to offer their healthy products and services too. Everyone is welcome to come out and join us for this day of fun. The $20 registration includes a t-shirt as a thank you for helping to support our cause.”

Obesity is a serious medical condition, with adverse effects on health, which leads to reduction of life expectancies. It is also the #1 most preventable risk factor for many diseases, including depression, heart disease, stroke, stress, back pain, arthritis, joint pain, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.

Come join Dr. Amin’s Fight Obesity Walk and help make a difference in someone’s life. All proceeds will benefit Fight Obesity Walk, a non-profit organization. For more information, visit http://www.fightobesitywalk.org or call (714) 832-3452.
