It’s no secret. Obesity in the United States is a major health issue, resulting in numerous diseases, specifically increased risk of certain types of cancer, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, as well as significant economic costs. While many industrialized countries have experienced similar increases, obesity rates in the United States are the highest in the world. (Reuters report)
What do we mean by “obese”? If a person’s body weight is at least 20% higher than it should be, he or she is considered obese. If your Body Mass Index (BMI) is between 25 and 29.9 you are considered overweight. If your BMI is 30 or over you are considered obese. (Medical News Today) Your BMI is your weight in pounds times 703 divided by the SQUARE of your height in inches.
It’s not just those who are truly obese. Increasing numbers of Americans are significantly overweight, exposing themselves to all the risks associated with obesity itself. The primary cause of this problem is a diet rich in simple carbohydrates (primarily sugar and white flour). Many people say they would like to lose weight, but they don’t know how. Or they have continuous CRAVINGS for sweet snacks, candy, donuts, cookies, ice cream… Sound familiar?
