80.2 million people, aged six and older are physically inactive in the United States.
Just 5% of adults get 30 minutes of physical activity per day. The average student spends 7 hours in front of a screen every day.
According to the Journal of health, healthcare costs from obesity cost the US between 150-200 billion dollars annually.
These figures are no surprise. The “Standard American Diet” aka SAD, is to blame. We are bombarded with advertisements and pressures to fall into specific social norms when it comes to diet.
Soda, chips, and fast food industries know that food and drink can be addictive. How so? Many foods available today are packed with sugar and sodium. We are wired to specifically crave certain things about our food, but these offerings have unhealthy amounts of these specific ingredients.
The result? Our bodies will store these in the form of fat. Not only that, the nutrients consumed are not of good quality, and don’t actually give us what we want from our foods… energy.
Sugar is a vital part of our diet. Everyone needs a certain amount of sugar to be healthy. Sugars are found naturally in many fruits and vegetables.
That said, when we consume too much for our body to process, and consume “empty calories” as it’s now called, Americans are feeling lethargic, tired, stressed, sick, and unable to perform their daily routine.
