There is no doubt that “high risk” people for developing serious Covid-19 illness, aside from age, are those that have poor weight control and the associated co-morbidities. Even before the pandemic, obesity related medical issues kill over 300,000 Americans a year. However, the Covid-19 pandemic as made weight control, now more than ever, of utmost importance. If losing weight were easy, 70% of our population would not be overweight. People need help, support, structure, and often, a medical “jump-start” to start seeing weight coming off quickly. The fall is less than 5 months away so NOW is the time to start working aggressively on weight control.
