Dieting, weight loss… they’re words nobody likes hearing, but in a country where 34% of our adults are obese, we really need to think about what we’re putting on our plates, don’t you think?
Studies show that the obesity rate has been climbing for years, and we’re not just talking about being a few pounds overweight. ‘Obese’ means that more than a third of all Americans are 30+ pounds over a healthy weight, so it’s no wonder we’ve seen such a big increase in obesity-related health problems. Those extra pounds put added strain on the body and can make a big difference in our overall health.
But wait, there is some good news! Studies show that the obesity rate seems to be leveling off, so even though more people are obese than they were ten years ago, for the past couple years the rate has not increased. To put this into perspective, in 1980 the obesity rate was less than half what it is now (just 15%), so when the obesity rate actually begins to fall, then we can really give ourselves a pat on the back.
Okay, so what can we do to help put those rates on the decline? It starts with lifestyle changes, and not just changes in your diet, but I mean long-term, honest-to-goodness, stick-to-them-for life changes like exercising more, getting more sleep, and drinking plenty of water.
And instead of quick-fix fad diets that are often unhealthy and don’t really teach you how to eat well, my Fiber35 Diet provides a sensible, healthful approach to long-term weight management that works with every lifestyle, no matter who you are or where you live.
Take it from me, fiber is one pretty amazing nutrient, and getting at least 35 grams a day is a great way to take off unhealthy weight and improve your health and digestion at the same time, so what are you waiting for? Let’s start changing those statistics today!
