The National Obesity Rate is at an all time High…

Hi Friends-

I’m going to get right into it- we all know that a healthy diet and exercise is best for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This knowledge is no surprise to us and has been analyzed and evolved over the years to still hold concrete value. So I ask you, why is it that our obesity rate is not only substantially high, but is continually increasing? I came across this interesting report from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index® showing that the obesity rate in the United States is the highest since Gallup and Healthways began tracking and measuring well-being in 2008, from 25.5 to now 27.7%.Gallup Report

American Obesity Rates are on the Rise, Gallup Poll Finds

So I ask you, are you on the track to a healthy life or a quick route to becoming a tragic story? People are dying from this disease, and it is so highly correlated to other severe health conditions. I challenge you to stop this epidemic by getting involved in your community, joining a health concsious association, playing with your children, stoping at the gym down the street, and actively making smarter choices. I want you to be proud of the healthy body you’re in, and enjoy what your body can give you.

Hope this has opened some eyes and inspires change:)

Until next time!
