The US obesity epidemic reaches a new all-time high


The US obesity epidemic reached a new all-time high in 2016, according to new CDC data. Every single state has an obesity rate greater than 20%, and in five states it’s even greater than 35%. Topping the chart? West Virginia, at 37,7%

To reverse this trend, something new needs to be done. Perhaps we should start by reversing the carb-heavy dietary guidelines that may be contributing to the obesity epidemic.

So how do you lose weight and maintain a good weight? Check out our main weight-loss guide or the new stories below.

    Hello there!

    Perhaps you ought to read some of the Diet Doctor's plans for losing weight? It doesn't appear that you have done any low carb eating really. One doesn't count calories on a low carb diet and once you get past the Keto "Flu"you don't even feel hanger and cravings. It's good you've cut out the white stuff , but you could do "The Challenge"you'd be sure to lose weight. Take some time to read the articles by people who've lost a lot of weight. I've been eating this way for over a year and have lost 20Lbs without trying.
    Good luck!
