    Even though obesity rates in America have remained stable over the years, it still affects millions of people nationwide and is one of the leading contributors to health-related problems – such as diabetes and heart disease.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7 percent) and approximately 17 percent of children and adolescents are obese.

    It is also noted that losing weight is one of most difficult things for a person to do, which can leave them frustrated and discouraged.

    In order to bring down the nation’s obesity rates in the coming years, public health experts, government agencies and health & fitness companies are looking at new, more effective strategies to help Americans loss weight.

    This helps to explain the lucrative market for weight-loss drugs and strategies that may be questionable at best.

    Researches have discovered that individuals who go at it alone are less likely to succeed than those who dieted in a group setting – such as Weight Watchers.

    In fact, researchers discovered that people who engaged in group weight loss programs are eight times more likely to succeed than those who dieted and exercised alone.

    The study’s findings highlighted that in order for people to effectively lose weight, they need a variety of weight loss methods. Companies – such as Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig – offer their members these tools to succeed. Each company provides group meetings, fitness exercises tailored to their needs and individual consultation when needed.

    People who have chronic health conditions typically pay higher premiums for health and life insurance. They are also more likely in the long run to face a higher risk of hospitalization or early death, depending on factors like lifestyle modifications and the success of their treatment.
