NARON, Spain: In a remote corner of northwestern Spain, a small town has set itself the ultimate weight loss challenge: by early 2020, its residents must shed 100,000 kilos. Gone are bacon and fried calamari from the diets of thousands of residents in Naron who are taking to sport again as part of a slimming program that kicked off in January.Pineiro often swaps his practice for the local park where he helps dozens of others warm up and exercise.Perched on the Atlantic coast of the Galicia region, the 40,000-strong town counts 9,000 overweight residents and another 3,000 who suffer from obesity, Pineiro says.The program, drawn up by local doctors, offers personalized diets and physical activity adapted to those who adhere.In the town, 18 restaurants now offer healthier dishes by promoting an Atlantic-style diet full of seafood.
