A program in the North Carolina mountains promises to change the lives of young people who are overweight.

Wellspring's Camp Hope is in Canton, about an hour west of Asheville. The camp is not cheap, but compared to a lifetime of obesity, some might consider it quite a deal.

The camp advocates 10,000 steps and fewer than 20 grams of fat each day.

Most people, however, take fewer than 5,000 steps a day and eat nearly 100 grams of fat.

Wellspring also runs schools if the summer camps aren't enough to reach the kids' goals.
