Advantages of Weight Loss

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the obesity rate in the US for 2017-2018 had reached 42.4%, from 30.5% in 1999-2000. This increasing share of adults who are considered obese is getting alarming, considering the associated risks involved in being overweight like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Obesity is also linked with increased morbidity (medical problems caused by a treatment) and mortality. [1]
