Our nationwide problem:
- Americans are extremely overweight; 40% of us are obese, 2/3 of us are seriously overweight.
- We spend billions of dollars on quick-fix weight loss programs and it is getting worse.
- We continue the practice of insanity! We perform the same bad habit with the same poor outcome with the illusion that continuing the same habit will result in a different outcome.
Something is clearly missing!
A new study reports that in the course of a lifetime, 9 out of 10 men and 7 out of 10 women will become overweight. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that 40% of the country is currently obese. Obesity is overtaking smoking as the biggest threat to our health.
Obesity raises the risk of heart disease, some cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis. The National Institutes of Health says that obesity causes about 300,000 deaths annually in the United States. Moreover, the financial costs to healthcare are staggering!
The price you pay for being overweight is huge!
- Your self esteem
- Your relationships
- Your wallet
- Your health
- Your productivity
- Your quality of life
- Your longevity
