Obesity and Comorbidities
A 2014 study in the American Journal of Health Promotion identified significant costs associated with obesity and comorbidities. These costs can increase annual incremental health care costs by over $5000 a year per employee.
A 2010 study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research estimates the costs of obesity add up to a nationwide total of more than $168 billion a year. Obesity often leads to serious and expensive illnesses, such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, depression and pain.
Today, nearly one third of all employees in the United States are obese, an increase of 20% in the last ten years. According to the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality, the morbidly obese, or 5% of the population, drive 49% of our national healthcare costs. Reversing obesity is one of the most important things we can do to prevent the downward spiral of deteriorating health and the consequent increase in health care costs.
An independent evaluation of the iDiet in the workplace found that the program has a significant positive impact on the metrics that matter – weight, body mass index, blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol levels all decrease.
Healthy employees are productive employees. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), healthier employees are less likely to call in sick or use vacation time due to illness. Workplace studies, for example, have found a 56% increase in missed work days by obese employees.
The iDiet promotes workplace productivity, first by helping employees reach a healthy weight. Next – and perhaps most important – the iDiet gives employees the tools they need to sustain their success, to maintain their new body weight and live a happier, healthier life.
iDiet’s Sustainable Results
Even more impressive than higher initial weight loss, the iDiet helps employees maintain their new body weight by creating sustainable, healthy habits.
The iDiet cognitive restructuring techniques are simple and scientific. Most iDieters say they are no longer tempted by high fat, high sugar foods. The iDiet reduces temptation while it helps to eliminate cravings and emotional eating.
Diane, a relocation consultant, lost 35 pounds on the iDiet and says her new way of eating is “here to stay”:
“Once my tastes changed, it was much easier to walk the perimeter of the grocery store and get excited about what the zucchini looked like that day. And that’s what’s different about this diet. There’s no more slippery slope, there’s no more greased slide into the chocolate fondue. It’s just not there.”
No other weight loss program offers these impressive results and or can deliver such a unique return on investment.
