We all want to lose weight, but most diets and exercise plans end up failing. But why? Lack of willpower would be an easy explanation, but that’s almost too easy. Inaccurate calorie counting can certainly derail weight loss efforts. And then there’s the “losing steam” factor.
During this time of year, most New Year’s resolutions have dissolved; waning enthusiasm and the failure to “stick with it” are certainly major reasons why diets fail.
Banner Urgent Care offers an effective, proven medical weight loss program. With obesity rates at an all-time high in the United States, the need for such initiatives is becoming more of a necessity than a luxury.
Let’s take a look at some statistics, and then look at how Banner Urgent Care’s plan can help.
Sobering Stats: The Rise of American Obesity
Everyone talks about the obesity epidemic in the United States. To really grasp the severity of the problem, numbers are much more effective than words. So how dire is the situation? Consider the following:
- More than one-third (close to 35%) of American adults classify as obese.
- 17% of children in the United States are overweight, and another 14% are considered obese.
- Among U.S. adults, middle-aged adults have the highest obesity rate at 40%.
- Annual medical costs for obese people are, on average, over $1,400 higher than non-obese people.
- Since 2008, the obesity rate has increased most among Americans aged 65 and older.
- 1 in 25 Americans are “morbidly obese,” with a body mass index (BMI) of at least 40.
Some statistics have a certain disconnect – that is, they seem to refute the reality of what the eye can see. However, obesity numbers have no such issue; the numbers are astounding to consider, but if you go out in public, it’s not difficult to connect the dots between statistics and sober observation.
So Why Isn’t Your Weight Loss Program Working?
After you’ve exhausted what may seemingly be all of the possible efforts, there’s a simple explanation: it might be lack of expertise and guidance. Maybe you’re not getting research-backed, clinically-proven, professional-level mentoring.
Let’s put it this way: if you’ve never played the guitar before, you would sign up for lessons from a band member, established musician or even a professional instructor. Now apply that line of thinking to weight loss. The vast majority of would-be pound shedders typically “go on their own,” confident that their own methods will succeed.
