New York – Two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese, putting them at increased risk for diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems.

.

Its a public health problem too big for the public health system to solve. Increasingly, businesses are asking what they can do to fight obesity among their employees, customers, and communities.

.

It was the subject of a recent meeting at the National Academy of Sciences. After all, employers pay for obesity in their health-care costs, so they should have some incentive to figure out solutions.

.

Here are five things companies can do to combat obesity.

.

1. Fix the food in the workplace

.

A year ago, you could walk into the Cleveland Clinic and eat at McDonalds. The Clinic shuttered the fast-food chain’s location in its food court last fall, one of 52 changes the hospital system has made in recent years to make healthy food more readily available.

.

It has removed deep-fryers from cafeterias and kitchens, banished sugary beverages, and made it easier to buy bottled water, said Michael Roizen, the health systems chief wellness officer.

2. Help employees meet their goals

.

Businesses have eagerly adopted wellness programs in recent years, using both carrots and sticks to prod workers into healthy behaviour. Some companies are beginning to make these programs more employee- and family-centric, says LuAnn Heinen, vice president of workforce well-being, productivity, and human capital at the National Business Group on Health.
