America has a problem. According to the Center for Disease Control, almost 35% (78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese. Being overweight creates a myriad of health problems that are preventable, and often treatable, by following a healthy diet and exercising. Heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer are linked to obesity. In addition, approximately 17% (12.7 million) of American children between the ages of 2-19 are obese. Compared to the rest of the world, the U.S. obesity rate is ranked among the highest.
