The National Health and Nutrition Examination says that data from 2017-2018 indicates that nearly 1 in 3 adults (30.7%) are overweight, more than 2 in 5 adults (42.4%) have obesity, and about 1 in 11 adults (9.2%) have severe obesity. Obesity can impact your health both physically and mentally.
Taking the steps necessary to manage your health and watch your weight can prevent you from chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Healthy weight does not come from short-term dietary changes, rather it is about a lifestyle that involves healthy eating and regular physical activity.
Weight control is to help you manage and maintain a healthy body weight. Reaching a healthy weight can prevent weight-related chronic conditions like heart diseases, diabetes, enhance sleep, and improve your overall health.
