Americans are getting bigger and bigger. According to recent data, by the year 2030 over 40% of Americans will be considered obese. Right now, the rate is 1 out of every 3 Americans is considered fat. If these trends continue, which it looks very likely they will, then our country is headed down a path with very serious consequences. Consequences not only for the health of the individual, but also the economic health and prosperity of our very nation.
Obesity leads to increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and a myriad of other health problems. This increases the utilization of drugs, hospitals, insurance, and overall health care costs for EVERYONE.
This cost must then be built into the cost of everything produced in this country, because employers are going to pass this cost along to the consumer. So not only does the cost of everything rise, but the overall productiveness of these people decreases as they get sicker and fatter, and have more health woes.
That is why it’s important to get the message out about how diet and exercise is the best solution for this looming problem for America. If people can get educated and understand that their health not only affects them, but it effects everyone around them as well. Maybe people will start to take responsibility for their own health and stop blaming the government and everyone else for their problems. Wake up America, Get off your asses and start taking responsibility for what’s going on around you. Be the change you want to see in others. Start eating healthier-raw fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and water. Exercise- weight bearing exercise for 30-50 minutes 1-3x/week and do cardio in between. And for Pete’s Sake- get adjusted every two weeks to keep your nervous system healthy. The Master System of our bodies that controls and regulates EVERYTHING.
If you consistently do all three ( 80/20 Rule), then you will have an amazing life for yourself, and you will actually help this country get back on track to becoming once again, the greatest country on this Earth.
