So I just found out that 2/3 of the American Population is overweight or obese.
Seriously!? That is freaking crazy. What the hell has happened to us to cause this shift in overall well being?!
It is very concerning. Are we as a people so numb to the feeling of being overweight that we dont realize we are? or is it something medical/mental or both? Where is our willpower? Why are we not actively changing?
There are millions of ways to lose weight, fitness programs, and supplements.
I think that our health insurance should be free if we are actively seeking to better ourselves through exercise and supplementing in a healthy way. The average American who is obese is spending more on food then they are bettering themselves mentally and physically.
If it were me, and it was about saving someone’s life, I would actively be reaching out to them daily to make sure they are on track. I know we have free will, but the problem with that is with that comes way too many options. Too many options with a small few that are actually beneficial to us. They should change the dietary guidelines across the boards in the US. They should limit the amount of groceries you can buy per day, per week, and per month. We spend excess amounts of money on stuff that goes to waste and it is POINTLESS!
Eat what you need, not what you can. Do what you need to do, not what you can do. If we did this more often, the rate of overweight Americans would drop. We just need to hold each other accountable, and help each other live a long healthy life. A 10 to 20 pound weight loss can be life or death for some people.
If you know someone who is overweight and you know they have complications because of it, reach out to them. Let them know you are there for them and will help them through starting a process to change for the better. Being healthy is our right as a species. Being strong is our right as a species.
We must stand together to beat obesity and live, or sit together and die.
