Obesity is the greatest healthcare epidemic the world has ever faced. It is now the fastest growing cause of death worldwide. Globally, 1 in 5 deaths is now caused by the excess weight that people are carrying. Excess weight has surpassed smoking and use of tobacco as the leading cause of avoidable death. In fact, carrying excess weight is greater predictor of very high rates of chronic illnesses than poverty, tobacco, and alcohol.

Now that we have your attention the next question is what is causing the rapid rise in obesity and excess weight. The answer is Insulin. Insulin in excessive amounts. Insulin is the obesity hormone. It causes the body to gain weight and at the same time prevents the body from losing weight. Currently, half of the people you know are actively trying to lose weight. They do not tell anyone of their efforts because they know the rate of successfully losing weight and maintaining the weight loss is abysmal. At least 95% of all diets fail within a 5-year period. The problem here is excessive insulin is the main cause. The complexity is that there are numerous other contributing causes to excessive insulin. Once a patient has excessive weight and is seeking weight loss it has become a medical problem. In fact, it becomes a medical problem to the point whereby a highly experienced specialized physician is needed. This the standard of medical care. Examples of this are low thyroid hormone or high thyroid hormone. Patients do not attempt to self-regulate their thyroid hormone; why should they try to self-regulate their insulin levels when insulin is just as potent of a hormone as T3. To lose weight patients require medical supervision.
