Obese People Miss Work More

Obese employees miss more work, and they have much higher weight-related medical expenses than folks who maintain a health weight, a study of 20,000 employees reveals.
In fact, an obese person 30 or more pounds over a healthy weight has to pay an additional $460 to $2,500 per person on medical bills.

See mercola.com’s interesting post about this and also this USA Today story, which tells more about the study.

Sugar was once my go-to "drug." Now, I'm an ex-sugar-addicted journalist. ALL 44 of my baffling ailments vanished after I reluctantly kicked the sweet stuff and quickie carbs in 1998. Now, I’m author of the expose, Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012), which gives you a simple, proven plan to kick sweets. My next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™ -- which I'm now completing -- will give you easy, tested tools to squash your cravings for sugar, salt and fatty foods. I’m also a motivational speaker, certified life coach, certified health coach, media guest, and Gab with the Gurus host. I'm also organizer for the upcoming Sugar World Summit.
