We live in a country that hates to face the truth and facts. Fact is Americans are unhealthy. According to the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, about 1 in 3 children of age 2-19 are overweight. In 12 more years, 1 in 2 American adults will be obese. These numbers are very high…too high to ignore. According to the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, $861 to $957 billion dollars will be spent on health expenditures by 2030. That accounts for 16% to 18% of the entire United States expenditures. These staggering statistical numbers that increase every year brings us back into truth and reality. As Americans, we can no longer sit and use excuse or turn our heads on the fact that something is terribly wrong with our lifestyle and diet. We need to educate ourselves on healthy lifestyles.

The best way to start reversing illness is educate oneself with nutritional information. Secondly, it’s important to have a support group. Taking pills, fad diets, extreme cleanse, and surgery is not going to fix the root problem. You cannot mask an unhealthy lifestyle with additives. Find the problem, figure out the weakness, and eliminate the issues. Remember eat to live not live to eat. Get your life back. Below are important links and movies to start your education.
