1. Buy advertising to persuade people to eat much less and quit sugars and junk foods entirely. It will be much cheaper than more government.
2. Put premium reductions into health insurance. Incentivize success.

There is more to it and the Nannies have screwed us up.
My company did that with a "wellness" program. The down side is that you have to submit to a long list of measurements that are entered into your personnel record as a starting point. No thanks. My employer doesn't need that information. The "payback" is a $75 annual reduction in the healthcare premium (currently running $300 every two weeks). Big deal. It's a fart in a hurricane.
I control my calories in a very narrow range daily. My weight stays +/- 0.5 lbs from day to day. I can drive it down by adding a fixed amount of exercise daily. I don't need government or employer "intervention" in my life.
