As we previously mentioned, New York City is planning to try and ban the sale of sodas larger than 16 ounces.
It's a move that has some people praising the city's health efforts and others damning their assault on personal freedoms.
Well now diet groups, like Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig are coming out to support the soda ban!
Weight Watchers North America President said:
"There has been a lot of discussion about obesity, but little action, which is why we at Weight Watchers support what this administration is doing to help New Yorkers live healthier."
The problem some people have is self control.
You may have a desire to lose weight but find it hard to do it when surrounded by temptation!
We think other cities should follow NYC's lead!
