Diets don’t work. The diet and supplement industry is a $30 billion industry, yet almost two-thirds of the U.S. population is overweight or obese.

Weight bias: What is it and what can we do about it?

There is an issue that has been flying under the radar for far too long. It is an issue that has become a socially acceptable form of discrimination and is prevalent in every state throughout our great nation: Weight bias. The unfortunate reality is that 69 percent of adults in the United States are overweight and 35 percent are obese.
