Do Good by Doing Well: Fight Hunger and Obesity at the Same Time

Did you resolve to get fit and lose weight in 2014? If so, you are not alone.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that more than one-third of U.S. adults are obese. Meanwhile, the developing world is contending with the opposite problem: malnutrition.

The holistic health guru, Deepak Chopra, created the Weightless Project to address both of these issues.

By signing up, you pledge to keep your resolution to exercise more. The program’s sponsors will then contribute $1 to hunger relief for every 1,000 calories you burn, as measured by your calorie tracker device.

If you do your exercises well and keep your New Year’s resolution, you will be doing good in two ways at the same time: fighting both hunger and obesity.

Best wishes for a healthy new year!
