Weight Loss Management ("The Combat Zone")
Over 68% of the US population is overweight or obese. Many experts believe that this phenomenon is of epidemic proportions, and THAT it is the biggest health risk that America faces at this time.
Being overweight or obese can lead to many serious diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, gall bladder disease, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer. In addition, obesity can play a large role in other health problems such as depression, stress incontinence, musculoskeletal injury, and pain. Obesity is the leading cause of premature preventable death in this country.
