Our Big Weight Loss Mission
The Big Weight Loss mission is to provide science guided nutrition and physical activity recommendations. Big Weight Loss is your guide to weight loss. Please read our blog to help you achieve a healthy weight.
Americans who are overweight or obese can benefit from our recommendations. If you have lost 40 pounds or more, we want you to be a guest speaker and tell your story in a Zoom Meeting.
Founder of Big Weight Loss
In November 2020, Brian Kondas started the Big Weight Loss website writing content from his home in Palm Harbor, Florida. Brian says, “by achieving our mission, we will make America healthier by lowering the incidence of chronic disease.”
Adult Obesity in America
For more than 25 years, more than half of the adult US population has been overweight or obese.2015 – 2020 Dietary Guidelines
The CDC reports on obesity and severe obesity:
- Adult obesity was 42.4% (2017-2018)
- Severe adult obesity was 9.2% (2017-2018)
- Over 51% of adults were obese or severely obese
On December 18, 2019, The Havard Gazette reported a new study: “About half of the adult US population will have obesity, and about a quarter will have severe obesity by 2030.” These predictions have a high predictive accuracy (95% confidence).
The New England Journal of Medicare published the study results. By 2030, nearly 1 in 2 adults (48.9%) will have obesity, and almost 1 in 4 adults (24.2%) will have severe obesity. However, this study defines severe obesity (BMI 35+) differently than CDC (BMI 40+).
We want to lower the rate of adult obesity in America, and science will guide our weight loss recommendations. Scientific evidence demonstrates that a healthy diet and regular exercise can help reduce obesity and other chronic diseases.
Your Guide to Weight Loss
Our blog provides weight loss and physical activity guidance for US adults based on the most current scientific evidence. For example, weight loss guidance on nutrition is based on Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) set by the Institute of Medicine.
Furthermore, you can learn about obesity and fibrous carbs. Discover the best foods for weight loss, and cook healthy foods.
A healthy diet and regular exercise can help improve your health and reduce your risk of certain chronic diseases.
Preventing Chronic Diseases
The CDC reports six in ten (60%) US adults have a preventable, diet-related chronic disease, such as:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Overweight and Obesity
You can reduce your risk of chronic diseases by eating healthy and regular physical activity.
