In the U.S., obesity rates continue to climb, despite more people exercising and working to be fit. Excess body weight increases the risk of multiple diseases and disability.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calls obesity an epidemic and the Pentagon has cited obesity as a national security risk.
Obesity is a complicated, multi-faceted problem and one that can’t be attributed to overeating alone.
No one deliberately decides to be obese and the solution to losing the weight is far more complex than simply deciding to eat less and exercise more.
Being obese affects the physical body, but there’s also a mental and emotional component to being overweight that’s further exacerbated by societal standards. Being obese affects every facet of an individual’s life, from their physical and mental health, social life, financial well-being, and earning power.
DietHealthMag is committed to providing individuals with the essential information they need to stay healthy and fit throughout their lifetime.
The online magazine’s new scholarship competition, “Our Fight Against Obesity,” is helping to shed light on a problem of national proportions.
