Millions of Americans struggle to overcome the chronic health condition, obesity. Obesity is a serious disease because of the complications that it can lead to, including but not limited to cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and even some cancers. While obesity is a common problem as we age, the frequency with which children are being diagnosed with obesity has increased dramatically in recent years. Adults with a Body Mass Index (BMI) score of 30 or higher are diagnosed with obesity and children with a BMI score in the 95th percentile and higher in their age group are defined as obese.
