Lose Weight Not Money

What Americans need is a way to lose weight not money. Wealthy Americans can afford to hire weight coaches, registered dietitians and chefs who can create, monitor, and prepare tailor-made diets. But what about people who live from paycheck to paycheck? These people need a way to lose way to treat their overweight condition that's free.

In 2006, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released their "Behavioral Risk Fact Surveillance System (BRFSS)." This research substantiated "that the obesity rates rose from 18.3% of the U. S. population in 1998 to 25.1% in 2006, which suggests that the increased prevalence of obesity is driving increases in total medical spending."

A recent paper entitled "Annual Medical Spending Attributable To Obesity: Payer and Service-Specific Estimates," written by Eric A. Finkelstein, Justin G. Trogdon, Joel W. Cohen, and Williams Diez documented that "the real cost savings are more likely to be achieved through reducing obesity and related risk factors."

If Medicare and Medicaid costs associated with obesity-related medical conditions could be avoided, would Americans do it? Here are some free things to do that those who are determined to lose weight without breaking the bank.

Write down all beverages and foods that you eat and drink. Begin making notes for about a week. Do not make any changes while making these notes.

This means everybody, regardless of their budget, can begin making changes immediately that are absolutely FREE.

Make and keep an appointment with the family doctor. Ask the doctor to suggest no-cost alternatives that can help in the quest for ideal weight and any decisions that need to be made about what to eat and drink. Begin doing the following things that are absolutely FREE!

Drink more of the right water. Because humans are 85% water, it only follows that 85% of everything a person drinks should be water. However, all bottled water is not the same. Kidney stone specialists endorse steam-distilled water as a beverage of choice because this process removes minerals and other things that might form kidney stones. Because canned soft drinks are so expensive, if a person drinks just half as many sodas, everyone will have the money that would have been spent on sodas, to get the steam-distilled waster. It is absolutely FREE!

While discussing what America drinks, there are some beverages that are wreaking havoc with the health of a particular segment of the U.S. population. Some of these so-called energy drinks are touted as performance enhancers that offer the wrong kind of sodium, sugar, caffeine, enzymes, artificial coloring and flavorings. This topic is so broad that it can't be discussed completely in this format. The best bet is to avoid these beverages altogether until and unless a doctor can be consulted.
