Dr. Clarke loses 40 pounds
During this fourteen year period Dr Clarke slowly gained significant body weight, going from 180 pounds to 220 pounds, and was at this point classified as obese. Being astutely aware that Alabama has a major obesity crisis, he realized that in order to maintain his health and to have longevity he needed to do something about this.
60 percent of the US population is obese. 80 percent of African American women are classified as obese. Alabama is ranked second in the country in obesity. Obesity is associated with increased risks for many medical conditions including Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Heart Attack and Stroke.
Dr Clarke took further medical training, did research and studied this serious issue of wide spread obesity in the country. He implemented for himself a low calorie diet and an exercise regiment, subsequently losing 35 pounds over a six months period.
Dr. Clarke is a former world class Olympian in Track and Field. READ STORY...
