Dollars for Donuts

You think putting on some weight is embarrassing? What if an entire town was watching you? In a move which could backfire magnificently or vastly improve the health of its citizens, an Italian town will pay overweight and obese men who live there to lose weight.

According to Reuters: Men living in the northwestern Italian town of Varallo will receive 50 euros ($70) for losing 4 kg (9 pounds) in a month, Mayor Gianluca Buonanno said. Women will get the same amount for shedding 3 kg (7 pounds).


Will Italian residents lose the pounds? And more importantly, would America be wading through an obesity crisis if we were getting paid to work the fat off? Hmmm.....
