OMG! 75% of US Adults will be Overweight by 2015

I don't know how long this article will be posted on Fox but here is the link:

75 Percent of U.S. Adults Will Be Overweight by 2015, Study Says

I believe it is around 66% right now. That is right. 66% of U.S. adults are either overweight or obese. And it is no laughing matter...

Some of my readers will absolutely know what it costs them to be overweight. Medical problems, lack of mobility, poor performance at work due to being tired and so on...

And 41% of the U.S. adults will be obese by 2015. And that my friend is a VERY serious matter. Now we are talking about a serious threat to life...

And what is even more scary is that women and some ethnic populations tend to have a larger proportion of overweight people.

For instance, 80% of Black women over the age of 40 are overweight and 50% of those overweight Black women are obese.

And those living in the southeast -- probably deep south are more likely to be overweight than those who live elsewhere.

The article doesn't conclude WHY exactly but I suspect it is the diet. You see, I believe that our bodies were designed to be lean, mean and healthy but when we feed ourselves with foods that our bodies were not designed for -- all that calories gets saved as fat.

The greatest paradox is that foods that are tasty and plentiful to us -- is killing us by putting ourselves in great danger.

And not to mention being the most miserable experience ever visited on humans. Being humiliated that our body parts jiggle. Being envious of the people who are skinny and wear sexy clothing.

When you are ready -- I mean it. When you are ready, that is the only time you are ever going to fix the overweight problem.

So when you are just mad enough... when you are just humiliated enough... to make that MASSIVE change in your approach to diet and exercise...

ONLY then -- you will succeed. And forget about everyone else. Especially the negative vibes from the "discouragement fraternity."

When you are ready, take a look at some of the books that I have reviewed that is going to work for you because YOU decided to take responsibility and make a change in the way you look and feel about your body.
