Health Economics: Is Obesity Hurting Businesses?

In a free country, nobody should force you to do something you don't want to do. Even though obesity is a health risk, it should be a personal issue on which nobody can compel someone who is obese to address. It is their choice whether they would like to hit the gym and stick to a diet to lose weight. That's because it's a personal and private issue.

Some studies suggested that companies lose profits due to productivity problems stemming from employees who are obese. So, perhaps implementing a weight loss program would solve this issue? Robert Graboyes tackles this issue saying that such a program might not be in the best interest of the company.
