Why Weight Loss?
Did you know that over the next few decades, the life expectancy for the average American could decline by as much as 5 years? Unless aggressive efforts are made to slow rising rates of obesity in our country, this will be the case. In 2000, obesity caused 400,000 U.S. deaths—that’s approximately 16% of all deaths nationwide! That compares with 435,000 for tobacco, or 18%, as the top underlying killer. Obesity is a very scary and very real second place killer in the U.S.
The truth is that obesity is truly an American epidemic and has proven to be a precursor to disease. It seems we’ve been talking about this for years and unfortunately it’s getting worse, not better. Here’s a look at some of the shocking statistics:
- 75% of Americans are overweight
- 50% will be obese by 2025
- 57 million people are pre-diabetic due to weight related issues
- $117 billion spent on health related obesity problems
Did you know that overweight people are twice as likely to die early and obesity is linked to the top 3 causes of death and many other health problems? These include:
- Heart Disease and Stroke
- High Blood Pressure
- Gallbladder Dx/Gallstones
- Breathing Problems
- Back Pain
