Weight of the Nation

I just watched the most informative video on the very serious problem of overweight and obesity that exists in our country. Startling statistics confirming that 68% of all Americans are either over weight or obese. Not only does this affect the lives of these people but also the cost to the health care programs, insurance companies, hospitals, businesses etc.

Companies of all sizes are also feeling the affect due to employees increased absentee rates and more use of the companies insurance plans caused by various illnesses. Most of these illness and diseases are directly related to overweight and obesity. Theses are mostly preventable diseases.

As adults we are all responsible for our own health not only for ourselves but for the society that we all live and share. There are many reasons for this epidemic some not in our control. What is in our control is our responsibility to do something about it.

This HBO special gives you all the needed information so take advantage it.

Keep it Simple, Consistent and Fun.
