Americans spend over $200 billion dollars a year on fast food. The weight loss industry makes around $72 billion dollars a year and the healthcare industry generates around $1.7 trillion dollars in revenues related to weight-related diseases. That’s a total of 2 trillion dollars in revenues by making people fat!
