The NY Post reports that Huntington NY, which is on Long Island, has been ordered to go on a diet. Long Island officials on Wednesday told an entire town to go on a diet — in an effort to combat coronaviruslockdown-induced weight gain.
Suffolk County Legislator William Spencer at a Facebook live press conference entitled "Dr Buchin is putting Huntington on a diet" announced The Healthy Huntington initiative. “We have to not let this take control over us … we need to take control of the situation. So we are providing free online exercise and yoga classes and nutritional advice for all 200,000 residents"!
Dr David Buchin director of bariatric surgery at Huntington Hospital, will oversee the program and he added “I’m hoping that we start off with Huntington and it kind of spreads across the country because it’s a very serious thing, and most every American could lose some weight.”
