Overweight and obesity are epidemics in New York City (NYC) and across the country. About two thirds of the US population live with overweight or obesity, including more than half (3,000,000) of the adults in NYC. Fortunately, obesity is preventable and as obesity rates decrease, so will chronic disease and associated mortality. In fact, even modest weight loss of 5%-7% (about 10 pounds) can improve health and decrease disease risk.
