According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the prevalence of obesity, defined as a Body Mass Index (BMI) of greater than 30 kg/m2, represents a significant health concern for the United States. By this criterion, almost one-third of adults in the US are considered obese and more than two-thirds are overweight.
