What do you think about what some employers and insurance companies have done-if your waistline is healthy(within a certain amount of inches) you pay far less than the obese? They've been doing it in Japan for a long time. They live a lot longer and don't get nowhere near the amounts of cancer and other diseases as here. I forget the number of inches for the waist but I want to say it's like 34 for a man and maybe 30 for a woman. Something close around there. I'm all for it. If Americans can't be motivated to lose weight when their health is failing what will? Money. They get to keep more of their paycheck in exchange for being a healthy weight. And yeah I know some may say "it's genetic" why some Americans are obese but that's really just an excuse. Very rarely is it hat a person can't lose weight or struggles because of something medical. In those rare cases a dr could exempt them from the inches insurance policy. The companies that have already tried this have seen great weight loss success. Being overweight really is all mental. If you set your mind that you want to lose weight you can.
