The U.S. obesity rate increased from 13 percent to 32 percent between the 1960s and 2004, according to researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Human Nutrition. By 2015, it is estimated that 75% of adults will be overweight with 41% of those being obese.

The higher your BMI the greater risk you have for heart disease, Type II diabetes, high blood pressure, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers.
