The adult obesity rate in the United States has been growing steadily since 1999, registering at 30.5 percent that year. It currently stands at an alarming level, affecting 39.6 percent of the adult population, according to a government report published in 2017. Experts from around the world are concerned because the condition is associated with other diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some types of cancer. It is a global problem, which has also gradually reached children.
Brazilian Emilly Pacheco shares with us her remarkable and interesting life story. Born in Mantenopolis, Brazil, she now resides in Bethel, Connecticut. Pacheco has become a viral influence online because of her perseverance and commitment in the fight against her obesity. She managed to lose 55 pounds and today, she inspires many followers in their daily struggles with weight loss, against the scale, sharing on Instagram, in a clear way and with a cheerful spirit, the recipes and simple choices that helped her become slim.
Pacheco also shares her life in the fitness world, where she has become beloved to many followers, especially because she is living proof that it is possible to get out of your comfort zone and achieve your dream goals if you are willing to commit.
According to Pacheco, the secret of not giving up and keeping your focus on a diet is consistency, adding that her final and personal goal is to achieve a better quality of life and improve her overall physical and mental condition.
