Oklahoma city – going on a diet

It’s nothing new to hear about individuals getting together to collectively diet, but for an entire city to be put on one is unusual. However, that is what Mayor Mick Cornett of Oklahoma city has done.

Fed up with seeing Oklahoma residents getting larger by the day, he has put the city on a diet. The ambition is for residents to shed 1 million pounds of wobbling humanity. That’s 454,545 kilos or the equivalent of nearly three 747 jumbo jets. Residents have so collectively puffed and panted their way to a weight loss of 62,000 kilos which is a great start.
