is in a state of health emergency.
More than 60% of the U.S. adult
population is overweight and over 25% are considered obese. One
out of four children and adolescents are now considered overweight
or obese and are quickly headed for a lifetime of chronic disease.
We are far fatter than ever and the numbers continue to rise at
a dreadfully high rate! Even more alarming is the fact that approximately
20% of the overweight Americans may not realize the need to lose
excess body fat - because they physically "appear" to
be of normal weight. Despite looking thin and having a normal
weight, they have altered or unhealthy body composition. What
is unhealthy body composition? Generally speaking, it refers to
carrying too much fat in comparison to lean tissue (e.g., muscle).
It is clear that activating healthy body composition is critically
important to experiencing the joy that optimal health can bring.
