A conservative estimate holds that 1 in every 2 Americans are overweight. One in 3 are clinically obese. And today, 1 in 10 children age 2-5 are obese!
Personally, obesity can effect individuals in the following ways:
- Physically: Limited activity level, lifestyle limitations, higher susceptibility to illness, slower recovery time, chronic conditions and chronic pain, difficulty sleeping. Potentially, shorter life expectancy.
- Mentally: Effect on alertness, comprehension and memory.
- Emotionally: Effect on self-confidence and overall sense of well-being.
- Socially: Effect on the ability to socialize, connect with new people, to engage in satisfying long-term relationships.

Causes of obesity:
Obesity may be a symptom of something larger. The underlying causes can range from a physical condition, body type, physical trauma or addiction to social conditioning and habits sometimes beginning in the early years in life to emotional conditions such as response to emotional trauma. You may have the experience of repeatedly trying various diets with little or no success.
