It is estimated that 130 million Americans are overweight or Obese, and obesity is now considered to be a global epidemic.  At any one time at least 85 million Americans are believed to be on one sort of diet or another.

As many people search labels for low amounts of everything from fat grams to calories, a recent scientific review says there are two nutrients that serve them well in high quantities – water and fiber – the main characteristics of low-energy density foods

• 6 out of 10 Americans are overweight.

• 64.5% of American adults (more than 120 million people) are obese

• Obesity affects all age groups, both sexes, and all races.

• 85,000,000 million Americans are on some form of a diet and 35,000,000 million are on a low carb or no carb diet

• Being overweight is correlated to the increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, some types of cancer, arthritis, and many other major health problems

During the past four decades, obesity rates have soared among all age groups, more than quadrupling among children ages 6 to 11. Today, more than 33% of children and adolescents—approximately 30 million kids—are overweight or obese. 

Preventing obesity during childhood is critical, because habits that last into adulthood frequently are formed during youth. Research shows that overweight adolescents have up to an 80% chance of becoming overweight or obese adults. Earlier onset of obesity leads to the earlier onset of related illnesses, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer.

Increased fiber in your diet is known to help with weight loss.
A high fiber diet can help you loose weight.

“ Some researchers have calculated that if Americans doubled their intake for fiber, they could cut 100 calories from their daily diet -- which could shave off 10 pounds of yearly weight”

• Fiber blocks the absorption of fat in the intestines

• Soluble fiber slows the transit time though the digestive tract, providing a "fuller feeling" while amorelating hunger pains

• Fiber changes the pattern of hormone release, thereby preventing low blood sugar, which contributes to hunger signals.

• Soluble fiber moderates the postprandial rise in blood glucose which can affect mood swings

• The greater your fiber consumption, the higher your caloric waste
In addition to the toll on our nation’s health, obesity also poses a tremendous financial threat to our economy and our health care system. It’s estimated that the obesity epidemic costs our nation $117 billion per year in direct health care costs and lost productivity. Childhood obesity alone carries a huge price tag-up to $14 billion per year in direct health care costs to treat kids.
