We all know that exercise is key to our physical and mental well being. However, there are a growing number of African American women who choose not to work out because of their hair! Styling and grooming black hair can be expensive and time consuming, so many women opt out of any activity which causes them to sweat. So what are the options? Is it possible to have great hair and a great work out schedule too? On the next Another View, we'll blow out the myths and weave in the facts about black hair and exercise with stylist Billy Parker, yoga instructor Tiffani Bryant, and satellite radio talk show host and wellness educator Shawna Renee, host of Cocoa Mode with Shawna Renee. Find out how you can make the choice between "your hair or your health"...and "your hair and your health". Join us for great conversation on the next Another View, Friday, December 6 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live from this blog!

"Oh, it's just baby fat". "She's just a little plump - she'll grow out of it." "He's not overweight - he just big-boned". Sound familiar? Cute sayings to justify obesity in our children. But the fact is childhood obesity rates have tripled over the past three decades, and in the African American community almost 40% of children are overweight or obese! Eleven percent of Black kids two-five are obese, and African American girls ages 12-19 have the highest prevalence of obesity than any other group. On the next Another View on Health, we continue our discussion on obesity and ways to combat it with Cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby and Dr. Caren Beasley, Clinical Director of the Medical Weight Loss Program at Sentara Comprehensive Weight Loss Solutions. We'll talk about ways to eat healthy on a budget, and how to get our kids off the couch and outside moving! Plus Lisa Godley introduces us to an 11-year-old singer/songwriter who just produced her first single.
