This is insane!

Sadly, it’s also a real possibility.

A new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that about 32 MILLION Americans will be obese by 2030.

That’s literally 42% of the population.

It even predicts that 11% of Americans will be considered severely obese by then, which means more than 100 pounds overweight.

The report predicts that there will be a $550 BILLION increase in obesity-related care costs.

One of the report’s authors said:

“Their weight continues to increase. Over the last 10 years, it has gone up tremendously. This is a group at great risk of health complications, and yet they are increasing at an even greater rate than the rate of obesity.”

The scariest part is the report has found that efforts aimed at helping obese people lose weight has proven ineffective.

Something needs to be done and soon.

C’mon you guys, let’s start a fitness revolution!
