Fat black belt experts

Okay, enough with the kissy-kissy. Lets get down to some issues.
I believe we have an epidemic of fat folks in this country, and as martial artists, we have the ability and duty to teach people self-control and self dicipline. Teach them to push away from the table and back away from the cheesecake. I don't know how it is your school, but mine is pathetic. I try to educate my students on eating well and exercising, but unfortunately the majority of them think just coming to class 2-3 times a week IS their exercise.
I've had guest instructors come to my school and not be able to walk up the stairs without being winded, because they were so out of shape.
I have one guy that tells me how healthy he eats, because he eats his 'fruits and vegetables' everyday. When pressed about those, he said that means he eats a slice of watermelon everyday.
We've got to change this.
I'm open to any ideas that you've experienced to motivate people to eat less and work harder.
