In USA, obesity has reached a level that is quite serious. Most in the obese category have at least a 25 BMI and we have over 15% Americans who are seriously overweight (see stats here). Extreme obesity is an underlying factor in many health issues among them are heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.
An obese person is more vulnerable to chronic and often extreme health problems. For example, the extra pounds affect your circulation, potentially causing heart problems. This is also a reason for issues with high blood pressure. Many who fall into the obese category are also developing Type II diabetes as well. There are a number of factors that could lead an obese person to develop diabetes. One such factor is that a person who ingests too many sweets in their every-day diet are at an increased risk for being obese and developing diabetes. Being at an increased risk for developing diabetes is something to be alarmed about. It can cause the body to go into a sugar coma and many people have died because it.
As mentioned, people with obesity will get serious issues with the heart. And when a person gets a heart attack, a surgery could be needed. Getting a heart surgeon to treat a heart problem can cost a lot! Instead of spending $10,000+ to treat this problem, why not get healthy? In some really serious case, I know of people getting harder in hearing and ended up going to visit an ear specialist. So, instead of getting to all these troubles, get rid of the cause of the whole thing: Obesity.
If you are struggling with their weight it’s important that you take steps to improve your health by losing the fat. Dieting doesn't have to be difficult. For instance, you can follow the food guide pyramid and join a gym to begin modifying your weight. A number of healthy eating plans let you cheat on your diet with indulgent foods from time to time. Portion control is key. So, no more super-sizing.
Those who are overweight and desires to cut off a few pounds should not do so for cosmetic reasons alone, instead, they should be losing the weight in an attempt to live a longer, healthier life. Just by starting your day or ending it with a little more physical activity can give your body a good start towards becoming healthy. The side effects of continuing to be overweight far outweigh the limited pleasures that being dormant and over-indulging provide.
