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.

I'm a former sugar-addicted journalist, who reluctantly quit sugar on doctor's orders in 1998. When all 44 of my crippling ailments vanished, I began interviewing hundreds of experts worldwide so I could give you the sour scoop about sweets. Fast forward 17 years, and I'm now author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012). The latter gives you a simple, proven plan to easily squash your sugar habit. I'm also a motivational speaker, a certified life coach, a certified health coach, frequent media guest, and Gab with the Gurus host. I'm now planning the first first Sugar World Summit and I'm finishing writing my next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™, which will help you easily escape your must-have-junk-food moments.
