Obesity is costing you money.
The average medical cost for someone who is obese is $4,000 a year higher than a normal weight peer, according to a study published in the American Journal of Health Promotion
Obesity is now the second leading cause of preventable deaths in America. In addition, obese adults and children are at risk for numerous diseases, including high blood pressure, diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, high cholesterol, heart attacks, and strokes. Further, numerous studies show that obesity is linked to absenteeism and presenteesim (working despite illness). As an employer, all of this adds up to paying a higher cost for employees who are obese.
The BOUNCE System for Employers offers a branded wellness program designed to help your obese and overweight employees develop healthy eating patterns and a healthy lifestyle that will yield a lifetime of benefits. Developed by Dr. Wendy Scinta, it combines evidence-based medicine with her clinical experience to provide a roadmap to health for obese and overweight patients.
The BOUNCE System can be used individually or customized as an onsite group wellness program. The system addresses obesity as a whole family issue and includes:
- Behavior modification
- Optimizing metabolism
- United as a family
- Notation of food
- Counting steps
- Elimination diet
