Most Americans fall short of achieving Optimal Health™ on their own, and our unhealthy habits are to blame. We spend most of our day sitting down and relying on modern conveniences (cars, elevators, etc.)

The food industry is not helping, offering ridiculously huge portions at many restaurants. Snacks and sugary drinks are everywhere we turn. To increase their own profits, food companies continually churn out high-calorie products, cutting nutritional corners with cheap sugars and loads of fat.

Obesity: a serious health crisis

The consequences of obesity and poor nutrition in America are sobering:

  • Less than one-third of U.S. adults are at a healthy weight.1
  • Obesity-related illness costs America $39.3 million in lost work days.2
  • Obesity was associated with nearly 112,000 excess deaths in 2000.3
  • The health burden of obesity, measured by the number of quality adjusted life years lost, has more than doubled from 1993 to 2008.4
