    There is no doubt that America has an obesity crisis, with nearly 70% of the total population overweight or morbidly obese!

    Many things have changed since the obesity crisis has come into play. The cost of healthcare has risen to a substantial extent. Hospitals must rip out walls and doorways to accommodate larger size equipment and hydraulic hoists. Hospitals have also had to rip out wall-mounted toilets and replace them with floor mounted models to accommodate the weight of said individuals. Public transportation’s cost have skyrocketed due to having to put in larger seats and spending more money on brakes and fuel cost.
    Yet the reality is that most of these rising costs can be easily avoided by paying attention to one’s diet. Choosing to a proper portion sizes, as well as a well-balanced diet is an easy way to avoid this obesity crisis and economic crisis.
