California is a state in the United States that has significant proportion of the population dealing with being overweight or obese.


Population of California

Total Population as per census 2010 is 37,253,956

  • Adults age 18 and over is 75.0% of the total population in 2010
  • Youth under 18 years of age is 25.0% of the total population in 2010

Adult Overweight and Obesity California

Among California’s adults age 18 and over[[]]

  • 60.7% of adults were overweight, with a Body Mass Index of 25 or greater
  • 24.0% of adults were obese, with a Body Mass Index of 30 or greater

Adolescent Overweight and Obesity California

2009 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) adolescent obesity data is not available, as California’s overall response rate was below 60%, the minimum necessary for statewide reporting.

Child Overweight and Obesity California

Among California’s children aged 2 years to less than 5 years[[]]

  • 16.0% were overweight (85th to <95th percentile BMI-for-Age)
  • 17.2% were obese (>95th percentile BMI-for-Age)

Dietary Behaviors of Californians

  • 40.1% of adults reported having consumed fruits at the recommended level of 2 or more times per day.
  • 26.8% of adults reported having consumed vegetables at the recommended level of 3 or more times per day. Physical Activity
  • 46.0% of adults achieved at least 300 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity or 150 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity (or an equivalent combination).
  • 22.1% of California’s adults reported that during the past month, they had not participated in any physical activity.

What went wrong with our diet?

Instead of blaming the victim for obesity, or yourself for obesity, it is important to understand what drives the weight gain, such as insulin resistance that affects up to 71 percent of the entire population out of which 35 percent already have metabolic syndrome.

Confusing choices

With over 20,000 books written on this topic with so much misleading information, let a trained practicing weight loss physician, Dr Prab R. Tumpati,MD educate you on the true science and art of obesity medicine.

Why the food pyramid failed?

The now withdrawn and failed food guide pyramid was a disaster as it advocated a low fat, but glycemic diet that leads to increased risk of insulin resistance which in turn causes weight gain.

Metabolic starvation in the obese

Most people that gain weight are not on a mission to gain weight intentionally. It is the paradoxical metabolic starvation that happens in the obese due to insulin resistance with a compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin that drives weight gain, hunger and metabolic starvation leading to food cravings, and weight gain!

Weight loss options in California

In order to lose weightt, understand the proven options to lose weight in California including the following.

  • Physical activity for weight loss which only works in combination with diet as exercise on its own is shown to be pretty useless for weight loss since exercise stimulates appetite and builds heavier muscle tissue thereby negating any weight loss with calories burned. However, a combination of low calorie diet and exercise, or diet alone would work for weight loss but not exercise alone.
  • Surgical options for weight loss such as the gastric bypass surgery can be an option for some to lose weight in California although most might regain the weight even after surgery and a behavior weight loss program is still needed for long term weight loss success in California.

Exercises for weight loss in California

Although exercise and physical activity is important for losing weight fast in California, it is important to understand it only works if used in combination with a reduced calorie diet for weight loss. Research shows that for weight loss, exercise alone is not a very useful tool for weight loss as exercise has a stimulating effect on weight loss, and it builds heavier muscle thereby compensating for any weight loss with burning of calories with exercise. Understand the role of exercise for weight loss in this youtube video from 52 weeks of weight loss and wellness video series.

Weight loss medications

In 2012, the FDA approved two new weight loss medications Qsymia and Belviq after years of rejecting many other weight loss medications. There are other traditional and time tested weight loss medications such as Phentermine, Phendimetrazine etc.
