Obesity is common, serious and costly. More than one-third (34.9% or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese and medical costs for people who are obese are over $1,400 more than those of normal weight. Obesity can also cause heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, September 2015)
From a personal perspective, obesity affects you physically and emotionally. It can take a toll on your self-esteem and your relationships or ability to build relationships with others.
