Concerned with the rising amount of obesity in the U.S. and hoping to encourage people around the nation to talk and act on the issue, Dr. Richard Ng wrote “Overweight or Obese?: You Can Lose It” (published by LifeRich Publishing) to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

“Overweight and obese adults make up almost seventy percent of the U.S. population,” Ng says. “The statistics for children and young adults are not encouraging either, with seventeen percent of those between two and nineteen years old reportedly obese.”

Overweight or Obese?” explores ways of losing weight, keeping it off and improving health. The book guides readers to identify the causes of being overweight or obese, recognize the risk factors that go along with it, engage in exercise that efficiently burns calories and avoid foods that contribute to weight gain. In addition, the book explains how losing weight can improve sex life, why sugar is a potential poison, how weight gain can result in cognitive impairment and what foods help keep weight under control.

Ng says “I want to impress my readers that healthy weight is important with serious impact in one's life.”
