• Over 65% of American adults are overweight or obese. 
• Obesity is the second leading cause of unnecessary deaths. It is a disease that affects more than 
one-third of the adult American population (approximately 60 million), with an estimated 5 to 10 
million considered morbidly obese. 
• Obesity results from the excessive accumulation of fat that exceeds the body's skeletal and
