About two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight, and almost one-third are obese. Poor nutritional choices like Junk Food, Soft Drinks and Fast Food are contributing factors, along with no exercise and sleep deprivation.
It's a known fact that globally, American's are workaholics, so what ever and when ever we eat, we grab and run with. Fast and Junk Foods offer little nutritional value, high fat, high sodium, high processed carbs and a future of obesity, high cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease. The American diet is also low on fiber, most getting 14 grams or less per day, but needing 25 to 38 grams per day.
