Are you fed up with obesity? You should be. Americans are the fattest people on earth. At a time when our nation is in a financial crisis and is in desperate need for healthcare reform we are making ourselves sicker and poorer with the food that we eat. For most of us, obesity and its related diseases like diabetes are preventable. Yes, many of us, myself included, are genetically predisposed to be overweight – but, we do have choice. We have the power to choose healthy food, to eat only when we are truly hungry and to exercise. Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss hypnosis clients learn the proven Slender For Life™ techniques that allow them to lose weight and keep it off.
Are Americans Getting
Fed Up With Obesity?
WebMD, January 17, 2012: The growth in the nation’s obesity rate appears to be slowing and in some groups leveling off, according to new research. Yet, the rate is still more than double the government’s goal for 2010.
The proportion of obese U.S. adults changed little in the 1960s and 1970s, but grew nearly eight percentage points between the 1976-1980 and 1988-1994 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys, or NHANES.
In 2009-2010, more than 35% of men and women and nearly 17% of children and teens aged 2-19 were obese. That adds up to a total of 90.5 million obese Americans. The Healthy People 2010 goals were 15% obesity among adults and 5% obesity among children.
Using NHANES data, the researchers compared obesity rates for 2009-2010 with those for 1999-2000. An increase was seen only in men and boys, but not in women and girls. In 2009-2010, women aged 60 and over were more likely than younger women to be obese, but there was no significant difference in prevalence of obesity in men by age.
Some researchers have suggested that 30% of U.S. youth will be obese by 2030, but, the authors write, their data “suggest that the rapid increases in obesity prevalence seen in the 1980s and 1990s have not continued in this decade.”
So have Americans finally begun to heed health messages about the risks of obesity?
Obesity and its related diseases are not only disabling and have a profound impact on our quality of life, but they also create an impossible financial health service burden for any country. The medical care costs of obesity in the United States are a staggering $147 billion per year. However, if future projections become reality, by 2030, obesity-related conditions will cost the U.S. health care system up to an extra $66 billion each year
We can change this. We can stop the preventable epidemic of obesity. How? With healthcare reform! Each of us must individually take responsibility for our own health care. Each of us must be responsible for what we eat, how much we eat and we each must be responsible for our weight. No more blaming our genes or McDonald’s or the processed food manufacturers. No one is forcing you to eat these obesogenic foods. You do have a choice.
