Weight Loss Statistics
In 2009–2010, 35.7% of U.S. adults were obese. 1
If you are obese and have unhealthy eating or activity habits, you have a higher risk for gallstones, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides, coronary artery disease (CAD), a stroke, and sleep apnea, among other conditions. 2
People with breathing problems could benefit noticeably from weight loss. Those who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea may experience improved sleep patterns and decreased daytime sleepiness with only a 10% loss of total weight. 3
A weight gain of 11 to 18 pounds increases a person's risk of developing type 2 diabetes to twice that of individuals who have not gained weight. Over 80% of people with diabetes are overweight or obese. 4
