Do 4 out of 5 Black women really want to be obese? According to a recently published opinion/editorial in the New York Times by Writer Alice Randall, the answer may be yes.

Alice Randall and Dr. Sharon Ottey will join Byllye and Ngina to discuss why so many of us are overweight and obese on Wednesday, June 6, 2012, at 2 p.m. EST on BlogTalkRadio. 

Do you believe Black women are fat simply because of poor eating habits, lack of exercise or admiration from our men? Or, do you believe that there are others reasons why we are  overweight or obese? 

We’re heard from the experts - who blame it on a lack of self-esteem and poor body image - in addition to overeating and under-exercising. Now, it’s time to hear from you.
