Atlanta Weight Loss and Management
Most Americans struggle with weight gain at some point during their life. In fact, two thirds of the U.S. population is overweight and one third of them are obese! This staggering trend has been steadily rising over the years. There are many familiar factors that contribute to being overweight, such as poor nutrition, lack of exercise, disease, hormonal imbalance, medication and heredity.
Although genetics play a part in obesity, it is much more complex in nature. The other, non-hereditary factors listed above are more frequently the culprits.
The Risk of Being Overweight
Weight management is not only an issue of appearance.
The health ramifications can be numerous, including:
- high blood pressure
- stroke, high cholesterol
- liver and gallbladder disease
- sleep apnea
One obese adult will cost a family $549,907 in health related illness.
Tax payers spend $147 billion dollars annually on obesity related illness.
Americans spend $33 billion dollars every year on weight loss diets and programs and most are unsuccessful.
