According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, obesity is fast becoming the number-one teen-age health problem in the United States.

n : more than average fatness [syn: fleshiness]
Princeton University Dictionary

Based on the above, it isn’t much of a surprise that the number one New Year’s resolution is “lose weight.”

The solution is so obvious.

The movies have always taken big beatings from critics who complain that too much sex and violence in movies is a direct cause of too much sex and violence among teen-agers; that it’s the powerful influence created by all those over-sexed and violent roll-model movie stars. If what they are saying were true, it would be reasonable to presume that if there were less over-sexed and violent movie stars, there would be LESS sex and violence among teen-agers.

Based on this same hypothesis, we should then be able to further presume that if there were less obese movie stars, there would be less obese teen-agers on the street. Well, I got news for you: There ARE NO obese movie stars! They are all rich and thin.

So, if your teen-age son or daughter is a victim of “more than average fatness,” and has a bit of unwanted fleshiness, put them on The Movie Diet.

Hey Lloyd!

Great to see you online. I have a question for you. Do you have a list of all of the episodes you did of the Lloyd Thaxton show, with guests notated? I'm an editor for several online archive sites and would love to have your information archived for all to remember.

If you don't have it yourself, any idea who may?

Thanks and keep rocking.

Hey yourself Rob:

From 1960 to 1968, I did over 2000 LT shows. Never thought at the time that anyone 40+ years later would be interested so I never kept a list. Believe me, I am as sorry as you are.

But thanks for listening. You just became a member of The Lloyd Thaxton Mouse Pack.

I collect a number of things, including old TV Guides for TV references. I have compiled a list of guests (and some songs) from Lloyd's show. It is far from complete but it is a start! If anybody is interested in a copy, please email me at

A whole array of anti-obesity pills and medicines are available in the market that helps you to trigger off successful weight loss but the weight loss diet pill Xenical is somewhat different as it prevents around 30% of the fat you take from being absorbed in your system. This further leads to less fat accumulation and ultimately weight loss becomes a reality. For more details on Xenical, visit the website
