Interactive Obesity & BMI Data.
The numbers don't lie. Obesity is a growing problem for the entire planet, but when compared to the United States it seems we are trying to beat the rest of the world to the buffet line.
Obesity isn't a problem just because it makes your clothes fit tight, it's what it eventually leads to; avoidable health problems that are closely related to diet. Cardiovascular Disease killed nearly 18 million people in 2016 alone, add another 3.2 million if you include Diabetes related deaths and that's nearly the entire population of Australia. It doesn't have to be this way for you or your family, but at the end of the day the choice is yours. Just remember, we are here to support you through the transition to long term healthy eating patterns that lead to lower BMI.
