Approximately 40 percent of adults in the United States are considered obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Being overweight can lead to a host of health issues, including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.
Obesity can also contribute to anxiety and depression.
