What Is The Weight Loss Money Saving Calculator?
The weight loss money saving calculator is a unique tool developed by Ideal You to help you calculate just how much money you might save over the course of your lifetime for each pound that you lose. The data used to power the weight loss calculator is based on an in-depth study conducted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health that was published in the Obesity Research Journal.
This tool can be great for helping you calculate a return on investment for your weight loss efforts. Regardless of whether you invest in a weight loss program or just invest your time into losing weight, there will always be a cost when you commit to building a healthier lifestyle. This tool can help you evaluate or justify that cost.
How To Use The Weight Loss Money Saving Calculator
To use the calculator, you’ll simply enter your age, weight, and height in the input boxes. These factors play a role in determining your lifetime savings. Once these details are entered you can click the calculate button. A slider will appear with the number of pounds you’re trying to lose.
You can adjust the amount of pounds you want to lose by dragging the slider to the left or right. Your estimated total lifetime savings will update in real time based on the number of pounds entered.
The Cost Of Obesity
We often talk about the health consequences of obesity, but obesity can also have a significant impact on the health of your wallet. Regularly consuming larger portions of food leads to higher grocery and food bills each week.
Obesity also increases the risk of developing a wide range of different health complications. These complications can drain thousands of dollars from your savings over your lifetime. A report from the CDC concluded that the medical care costs of obesity in the United States is $147 billion.
In addition to spending more, you may also make less over your lifetime. Health complications can reduce your productivity along with the reduced mobility and energy that comes with being overweight. Experts estimate that obesity costs the United States somewhere between $3.3 and 6.4 billion dollars in lost productivity.
The combination of increased expenses and reduced income can really take a toll on your budget. Depending on your current weight, age, and how much you’re looking to lose, you could stand to save thousands of dollars by shedding some pounds.
How Much Money Could You Save With Weight Loss?
You could stand to save a considerable amount of money by achieving your weight loss goals. The study conducted by John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (the study our calculator is based on) found that adults could save anywhere from $6,330 to $31,000 with weight loss.
Savings are greater when you drop a weight class (from obese to overweight or from overweight to a normal weight). Those who are obese could stand to save the most by losing weight. You can view the estimated savings by age and weight class in the table below.
|Obese to Overweight
|Overweight to Normal
You can use the table above to determine how much you could save from dropping a weight class depending on your age. As an example, if you are 31, you could save up to $16,339 in lifetime expenses dropping from obese to overweight. Additionally, you could save up to $27,331 dropping from obese to a normal weight.
Can You Make Money Losing Weight?
There is a lot of interest in weight loss programs that pay you to lose weight. Popular Google searches related to that relationship include: Weight loss for money, losing weight for money, money for weight loss, and get money for losing weight.
It’s important to keep in mind that losing weight is more about saving money than earning more money. You likely will earn more due to increased productivity, but you’ll save much more in avoided medical expenses.
Programs that pay you to lose weight should be avoided. Companies that offer these types of programs are for-profit businesses. They wouldn’t be in business if they were giving out more money than they were taking in. The best way to lose weight is to choose a proven program that will keep you focused and motivated, and give you the guidance you need to keep the weight off.
