Obesity kills about 47% more people every year than smoking.
And a recent BYU study is shows things are about to get even worse.
They looked at 13,800 adults and found that more than half of Americans got at least 5% fatter over the past 10 years. [R]
On average, Americans today are already 30% more obese than 22 years ago.
Now, here’s the million-dollar question:
What specifically is causing this trend?
What changed over the years?
If you can answer this question, I’m sure you have the Nobel Prize waiting for you.
While it’s hard to pinpoint the exact reasons, I have my theories.
For one, it’s no secret that most of our food is processed and filled with a bunch of unnecessary ingredients designed to get us addicted.
Also, our education system doesn’t help.
Remember the food pyramid?
That turned out to be an outright lie.
In what world is bread the bedrock of a healthy diet?
Also, look at the way modern American lives are structured:
Crawl out of bed with very little sleep and into the car for a 20+ minute commute.
To a job where sitting around for 8 hours a day is normal.
There are probably cupcakes in the breakroom.
5pm finally strikes and it’s time to sit in the car for another 20+ minutes…
Only to get home and collapse onto the couch because you’re so exhausted from the stress of work.
Sleep can wait because whatever’s on Netflix is more important.
You get my point.
If I wanted to create a society full of miserable and unhealthy people, this is exactly how I’d design it.
But hope is not lost.
You can resist.
You can be the one to say “no” while everyone else is indulging in junk.
You can be the one who works on your own business while all your co-workers are passively letting their lives go by.
You won’t opt out of the system overnight.
But I promise you this:
Take the right steps like the ones we show you in these emails and you’ll be free sooner than you think.
