Black women are tipping the scales and dying of preventable illnesses. Now is the time to get your weight and health back on track

Obesity, which is a growing problem among Americans, is the biggest issue for black and Hispanic women, according to a new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

African-American females have reportedly reached a 57 percent obesity rate. Ladies, it’s time for us to take to control of our health.

The study, which had about 5,000 participants, comes after more than a decade of government anti-obesity campaigns trying to get people to eat better and exercise.

So what can you do to get your health under control?
