Overweight/obesity is turning down life expectancy and health. This can be corrected with behavioral weight management programs, as scientifically verified, which you may not overlook. Read on to learn about details.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
According to the U.S. governmental National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIH), more than 30% of adults in the country are overweight and more than 40% are even obese. I.e. their Body Mass Index (BMI), i.e. index weight-for-height, is at least 30% higher than what it got to be in terms of age and height. In fact, this index has tripled since 1975.
Although this is not the only reason why the U.S. ranks only at position 46 on the list of life expectancy of the World Health Organization, it certainly plays a role.
