Fat Fighting Solutions Week: Battling the Bulge in Your Busy, Modern Life

"It is no question that obesity is rampant in the United States. More than one-third of American adults are obese...That's why I'm dedicating this week to losing weight and melting fat for good."

Our battle of the bulge has spanned centuries with numerous diets, supplements, shapewear and exercises. The ancient Egyptians induced vomiting at least three times a month to stay slim; the ancient Chinese have used supplements to aid in weight loss; Renaissance-age women relied on corsets made with whale bones to keep a flat stomach. As our fashions and tastes changed throughout history, our obsessions with our hips, thighs, stomachs and arms have evolved, as well. Now, in the 21st century, our weight loss battles have evolved into a public health epidemic. It has expanded from a mostly cosmetic obsession into a question of life and death, and we're losing.

It is no question that obesity is rampant in the United States. More than one-third of American adults are obese, and this number is even higher among African-Americans and Latinos. Those numbers, like our waistlines, are growing and growing. That's why I'm dedicating this week to losing weight and melting fat for good. During our Fat Fighting Solutions Week, I will show you, America, how to beat the bulge and not only boost your confidence but also change your health for the better.

This fat fighting week is very important, America. This battle is vital for your health. In the operating room, I've seen thick layers of fat encase the heart, line the arteries and practically suffocate the internal organs. Obesity increases your risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and certain types of cancer, and we're currently spending around $147 billion a year on medical costs associated with obesity. We're losing a centuries-old battle, and Fat Fighting Solutions Week will give you an advantage our ancestors didn't have.

You'll learn that simply eating less fat isn't the solution. Losing your bulge requires transforming not only your diet but also your lifestyle. You'll have to look at not only how much fat you're eating, but also how much sugars, grains and protein you eat as well. You'll have to assess how your hormones are affecting your metabolism; and above-all, you'll have to find ways to fit weight loss into your busy schedule. I've done all the work for you. All you'll have to do is tune in and learn from our array of experts who are here to help people like you.

Weight loss is a personal, challenging, never-ending journey. Stick with me, and we'll get through it together.
