Obesity: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:39 by admin
Over thirty percent of Americans are severely overweight or "obese." People who weigh over twenty percent more than their ideal weight are considered obese. The problem of obesity has been increasing as the American lifestyle has become more and more sedentary. Despite the fact that diet and exercise are time proven methods of weight control, many people have been attracted to quick weight loss schemes that promise dramatic results with little physical exertion and no reduction in caloric intake. Additionally, many dietary supplements, over-the-counter medicines, and prescription drugs are advertised as miracle weight loss agents even though their efficacy and safety have been seriously questioned.
