Obesity in the general population is an increasingly dire problem in the United States. Well over half-a-million people die each year from just one of the major problems that arises because of obesity: heart disease. It affects all demographics – race, gender and age don't matter. The primary causes are environment (food advertising, lack of outlets for exercise in many neighborhoods, and giant portions served by eateries), genetic influences and an inactive lifestyle.
Groundless weight loss is a result of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that means those patients who suffers from malnutrition, which causes them to get tired faster and makes them more susceptible infection. Even, more important is that, these patients may not cope well with the effects of treatment such as chemotherapy and other treatment are often delayed, for example, due to a decrease in the number of blood cells, which prevents the holding of the next healing rate.
By Wendy Grace, Trainer and Co-Owner, Mission Fitness CenterThere have been several seasons of the ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ TV shows, featuring celebrity trainer Chris Powell, and, sometimes, his wife, Heidi. One of my clients is a fan of the show, and she asked me what I thought. After talking to her, watching an episode, and doing some online research, I’d say there are things to learn from this well-intentioned program, but I also have some concerns.
What are YOU doing to save more lives and make a dent in the obesity epidemic with your fitness business?
I love what I do. I help to motivate individuals who never ever thought that they could change their lives. I help people to see a number on the scale that they have not seen in years. Through Fergie;s Instructional Training, individuals learn about nutrition and healthy choices.

Researchers say you can measure a person’s risk of obesity by measuring his or her soda intake. Versus people who don’t drink sweetened sodas, here’s what your daily intake means:
½ can = 26 percent increased risk of being overweight or obese
½ to 1 can = 30.4 percent increased risk
The headline says it all, "US Waistlines Expands Despite More Exercise". So if we're exercising, why are we still obese? Isn't exercise the "cure"? As a personal trainer and fitness professional, I'd like to say yes. However, Americans can't lose weight until we become honest about how we eat.
