Maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall health and can help you prevent and control many diseases and conditions. If you are overweight or obese, you are at higher risk of developing serious health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers. That is why maintaining a healthy weight is so important.

Importance & Scope:

 The United States is facing a serious epidemic. Recent nationwide surveys reveal that 66 percent of adults have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or greater, classifying them as either "overweight" or "obese." Unfortunately, this epidemic is not only affecting adults. We are now seeing increasing numbers of overweight children and teens.

As the weight of Americans rises, so do the secondary risks associated with obesity. These risks include cardiovascular disease, hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, stroke, osteoarthritis and even cancer. The chart below shows how in the U.S., for instance, poor diet and lack of adequate physical activity are the second leading underlying causes of death, second only to tobacco use.                  

Researchers reported that the risk of developing diabetes, gallstones, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, and stroke increased progressively with the level of being overweight among both women and men. The most obese members of the study population were 20 times more likely to develop diabetes than their normal weight peers. This conference may provide a comprehensive study on weight loss and fitness management.

Why Philadelphia?

One of the biggest issues facing is the U.S. is the obesity epidemic. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is home to more than 1.5 million residents, is tackling obesity and tobacco use throughout the community. Approximately 67.9% of adults in the city and approximately 41% of youth aged 6-17 are overweight or obese. Additionally, nearly 70% of youth in North Philadelphia, the majority of whom are black or Hispanic, are overweight or obese, which is nearly double the obesity and overweight rate for youth in the United States. Fruit and vegetable consumption is a challenge for residents, with nearly 25% of youth and 30% of adults getting only one serving or less per day.

 Over the past three decades, obesity rates in America have tripled, and today, nearly one in three American are overweight or obese. Less physical activity, having junk foods, increased portion sizes, and spending more time watching TV and playing video games are just a few factors that have led to this epidemic. Philadelphia is facing high obesity rate and working hard to combat obesity throughout the state.
