Lose Weight, Save Money: The Staggering Monetary Impact Obesity Has On America.

11 Jun

I snagged this off of Yahoo Finance. I like it, I think it’s great work and I wanted to share it with you all. I find it to be very disturbing personally but at this point in time I am finding almost every aspect of the obesity epidemic to be disturbing. We need to change and it needs to happen NOW. Now is the time for everyone to get moving and get switched over to a plant-based diet. Look at where we are heading, we have to be accountable for this, we have to change because no one did this to America but us.

I encourage everyone to go and rent a DVD/VHS/Blue Ray of a movie from the 1980’s  or the 1970’s, heck even the 1990’s will do. Now take a look at the people in the movie and in the background, notice how SLIM EVERYONE is. Men with 29 inch waists, women with 25 inch waists are a common place and no I am not even talking about the Hollywood actors in these movies. For example, the opening scene of Saturday Night Fever as Tony is strollin thru Bay Ridge, yeah, look around at the figures of the people on the streets. Slim. Everyone was slim. I watch old movies a lot and am constantly in a state of shock when I see the average people’s bodies back then, everyone looked GOOD. Let those movies motivate you cuz that is how we should look, we should not look the way we do today. Plus, being so fat is costing us A LOT of money, so shape up people cuz let’s face it…you want to look better, you want to feel better and you deserve better.

Plus, it saves you money. Save your money and safe your life? It’s a friggin win-win.

    It is scary to see these figures but what is even more scary is that the governments know that all the hormones and toxins put into animal based foods causes obesity and health issues yet they advertise them as “healthy” and still allow these hormones and toxins into foods.
    Thanks for sharing this chart!

      That’s the truth.
      I totally operate on the level of ‘If the government says its good for me, I don’t dare eat it’ ;)
      Thanks for stopping by.
