Why Are Fewer Americans Trying to Lose Weight?

The number of obese Americans has reached record levels. This trend is plenty disturbing on its own, but CNN reports that the situation is even worse than we imagined. Despite the catastrophic obesity epidemic, fewer Americans are interested in losing weight than a generation ago.

Less than half of overweight Americans are trying to lose weight. There are certainly multiple reasons for this serious issue. With so many people overweight, one theory is that obesity has been “normalized.” Another real concern is that fad diets have proven demoralizing and ineffective. This is particularly troubling because there are proven ways to take control of your health. It is just a matter of finding credible and accurate information. 

My cutting edge nutrition plan is an excellent starting point. Its foundation is the basic concept that you should remove all processed foods from your diet. In their place, consume only nourishing and sustainably sourced whole foods. This change may sound time consuming, but the benefits are immense.

Another integral component of any successful weight loss plan is to exercise effectively and incorporate regular movement into your daily routine. When it comes to weight loss, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) combined with intermittent fasting is the most effective combo I know of.

As you know, I’m a huge advocate of intermittent fasting, which helps reset your body to burn fat for fuel, and helps optimize insulin sensitivity. This is one of the most effective interventions for normalizing your weight and helping you feel less hungry because, when you exercise while fasting. It essentially forces your body to shed fat.
