3 Obese Americans Move to China, Shed 427 Pounds Combined
Three morbidly obese American men took the unusual step of moving to China in an effort to shed their unhealthy habits and lose weight, Agence France-Presse reported.
Alonzo Bland, 33, and brothers Walt and David Anderson, ages 56 and 50, moved to the northern Chinese city of Tianjin in the middle of this year as part of a weight-loss effort and have managed to shed a combined total of 427 pounds. They hope to lose at least another 100 pounds combined.
The three men headed to China after winning a contest from the U.S. company China Connection promoting traditional Chinese medicine, AFP reported....
Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon wrote: To these therapists we offer a challenge and a warning. Take a long look at the world of Chinese medicine and then decide whether you belong there. Do you feel comfortable as a part of the New Consciousness movement, promoting Taoist philosophy, supporting a system whose basic message is that "all is one," and helping usher in the New Age of miracles and magic? If not, then it is time to stop participating in therapies which lend credence and support to a world view which is antagonistic to the most basic teachings of Scripture.
