Joe used to be unhealthy, overweight, and unhappy, and he sure did want to fit in with his friends and make the soccer team. With the help of his parents, his doctor, and his best buddy BuffHound, Joe successfully battled his addiction to sugar and became super motivated to live a healthy lifestyle. He learned how to choose healthy foods and the benefits of exercise. By reading Joe Some-More, you too can learn about what happens when you eat too much fat and sugar, and how nutritious food and staying active can change your life.
If Joe can do it, so can you!
