Facing The Twin Health Epidemics Head On
Obesity & Diabetes
One cannot help but notice the expanding girth of those around us; maybe even our own. This is not a surprise, as according to statistics provided by the World Health Organization in 2016 and 2017, both the prevalence of diabetes and obesity have almost doubled since 1980.
According to the American Diabetes Association, 29.1 million Americans live with diabetes and an alarming 1.4 million new cases are reported each year! Additionally, 68.8% of Americans are obese/overweight.
Globally, diabetes has risen from 4.7% to 8.5% in adults since 1980 and obesity in men has approximately tripled, and in women, doubled, between 1975 and 2014. This dramatic rise in obesity has led to at least 2.8 million people globally dying every year as a result of this added health risk!
Scientists say sweetened beverages are the single largest contributor to the obesity epidemic and that epidemic exacts a big toll in both health problems and medical costs. All you have to do is take a stroll down the beverage aisle at any store.
There are low glycemic beverages that provide a healthy alternative to the plethora of high glycemic beverage choices. Science and clinical trials have been key to finding a way to battle these statistics.
It is concerning that physical inactivity in the United States is very high! American adults do not meet the government's national physical activity recommendations for aerobic activity and muscle strengthening. A lot of adults are not sufficiently active to achieve health benefits. The Healthcare Costs of Obesity is one of the biggest drivers of preventable chronic diseases and healthcare costs in the United States.
LIFE DOES NOT NEED TO BE THIS WAY!
My PASSION is to help reduce this diabetes and obesity epidemic in the United States, and specifically right here in San Diego, California… I think to myself, “It’s no wonder that we have a population that is overweight/obese. Our food choices are fast, cheap and often on the go!”
We are in the middle of a health crisis tsunami, so it seems… How cool would it be to Drink and Shrink? We need a Health Revival in our country!
Could you get excited about that? How would it feel to make a difference in the lives and the health of yourself and others?
Knowledge is power. This is the reason I want to steer you, the reader, into doing more research on the glycemic index. This is no secret, so why not PUT THE SKINNY BACK IN YOUR GENES.
It’s time to break the cycle that the diabetes and obesity epidemics have been making headlines about! It’s time for us as a people to make a difference, make a change! Let us empower one another with the knowledge that is available.
