Welcome to the 6th edition of the Weight Management and Fitness Forum . We received more submissions for this edition than we have ever received before. We had a very difficult time narrowing it down to these. We appreciate everyone's hard work and participation because that is what makes this forum possible. We hope you enjoy the selections and look for information about the next edition at the end of the articles.
Doug Ragan presents E3 Success Blog » Blog Archive » Cleansing for Weight Loss posted at E3 Success Blog , saying, "According to the Center for Disease Control, an estimated 66 percent of U.S. adults are overweight. 32 percent are obese. A new study by researchers at RTI International and the Centers for Disease Control estimates that U.S. obesity-attributable medical expenditures reached $75 billion in 2003 and that taxpayers finance about half of these costs through Medicare and Medicaid. Some estimates claim that obesity contributes to over 300,000 deaths per year in the U.S. and has surpassed smoking as the #1 killer."
That concludes this edition. Again, we hope you enjoyed the selections. Look for our next edition to be posted here at Weight Master on December 16th.
