I frequently write and talk about the economic cost of obesity and it’s resulting diseases. Obesity is preventable and as a nation we simply cannot afford the economic burden of this preventable epidemic caused by lifestyle choices. Here in the U.S. we have the highest obesity rate in the world. Frankly, this is shameful and inexcusable. We can change this. You can begin by voting with your dollar – simply don’t buy foods that make you fat and sick. And, you can learn hypnosis for weight loss to help you make healthy plant based food choices. Let’s no loner be a nation of gluttony. Weight loss hypnosis can help you make positive changes in your life.
The Economic Cost of Obesity

According to Dr. James Hill, director of the Center of Human Nutrition at Colorado Health Sciences University, “Genes don’t make us obese. They allow us to be obese.” If our genes aren’t to blame for this rise in obesity, what is? Recent research suggests that socioeconomic class can impact our bodies as much as genetics, and may be a more accurate predictor for a variety of future health issues, including obesity. Check out this video to learn more about how American policies, like food subsidies, have had a direct role in driving our current obesity crisis.
65% of the world population live in a country where you are more likely to die from being obese than you are from being underweight
32.9% of people with less than a high school degree have the highest obesity rate
Rates of severe obesity are 1.7 times higher among poor children and adolescents
$1.28 billion went to junk food ingredients in 2011 for a total of $18.2 billion since 1995
18.2 billion is enough to buy 116 Krispy Kreme donuts for every American tax payer
Only $637 million in subsidies for apples since 1995 – that’s enough to buy 1/2 of an apple for every tax payer
The average American consumes slightly under 2700 calories per day which is a 25% increase since the 1970s
The cheapest food is the fattest food and it is the least filling.
The effects of obesity are devastating to our society and threatening its very existence impacting the economy, healthcare and military defense. There is no excuse for this. Studies show that weight loss hypnosis can more than double the effects of traditional weight loss approaches.
