MORE THAN YOU IMAGINED! USA TODAY 344 Billion Strong, Opps, I Mean Wrong! A USA Today article states that if Americans continue to pack on pounds, obesity will cost the USA about $344 billion in medical-related expenses by 2018, eating up about 21% of health-care spending, says the first analysis to estimate the future medical costs of excess weight. These calculations are based on the projection that by then 43% of American adults may be obese, which is roughly 30 or more pounds over a healthy weight. So if obesity continues to rise at the current rate know that it will cost you more than you imagined. Here’s why. Extra weight increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and many types of cancer, which can be prevented. How so?  It starts with you doing this. You must right the wrong by getting your weight and health in check. Note: I have a number of blogs here that will help.
