How to Eliminate Obesity and Say Goodbye to It Once and For All

The prevalence of? obesity among Americans is high.? According to a study conducted by American Medical Association from 1999 to 2008, more than 30% of both men and women in the United States are suffering from the direct and indirect consequences of obesity. In fact, so many have already developed hypertension? and diabetes because of this condition. In another study conducted by the aforementioned? association, they have also noted that obesity is positively associated with excess mortality due to cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.

Obesity is now considered a disease suffered by so many people.? This may be a result of slow metabolism, overeating, less or no physical activity, and sedentary lifestyle.? In majority of cases, many just accept obesity as a fact of life when in fact, like most of the diseases, obesity can be cured.? It can be eliminated.

If you are obese and you are battling to overcome those extra pounds, you may want to have some lifestyle modifications to stop that somewhat endless trend of gaining weight. I’m sure you have already tried using zero calorie sodas or zero-fat ice creams. Maybe you have already tried those products that say “Lose 30kg in 30days!” If you think your fat will just go away by eating this and trying that, then think again.? That stubborn fat will not just say goodbye to you with any fad diet.? There is no magic involved in bringing down the reading in your weighing scale!

Luckily, there is safe yet effective way of getting those fats off your? body.? The road to recovery from obesity may sometime be a little frustrating. It may sometimes be tedious. But if it means having a healthier, lighter you,? will you not give it a try?

And so, here are the steps:

1.? Stop munching and nibbling all those junks!? Every day, you should have three major meals, not one continuous meal that never stops day in and day out!? To help yourself from getting off from this food addiction, why not start by eating a healthy, delicious and very satisfying breakfast that can get you on the go until lunchtime?? Coffee is not enough.? Take some time to prepare your first meal of the day.? Getting hungry before lunch?? Grab a healthy snack such as fruits, grains or nuts.? Remember, junks such as potato chips, french fries and soda can only give you empty calories, which if not metabolized to energy will only? be converted to fats, fats and more fats!

2. Consult your doctor. If you are more than 50 pounds overweight, never start a diet plan all by yourself.? In a study conducted in? John Hopkins Bayview Medical Center last June 2003, the experts noted that rapid weight reduction is strongly associated with the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver, a condition by which liver becomes overly deposited with fat due to increased fatty acids in the blood stream, which in turn is predecessor of liver cirrhosis, a chronic liver disease which causes destruction of the liver cells. Asking an expert is very much needed for you to avoid developing fatty liver while having your weight loss program. In fact, your doctor can also give you the best programs to help you get started. This way, you can have gradual and healthy reduction of your weight.

3.? Find a good psychologist or counselor who can help you win the battle against your overeating disorder.? If you just can’t resist the temptation of going to your kitchen to eat every now and then especially when you are depressed or stressed, chances are you having some behavioral problems. Getting conscious about the reasons why you keep on putting your hand into you potato chip bag is the start of better self control when it comes to your food intake. And once you? have a better control of your appetite,? you are one step ahead in your journey to weight reduction and recovery.

Changing your lifestyle and having more self-discipline is the best method of fighting obesity.? It is not just a diet plan.? It is about creating a better and healthier habit.? Never, ever, accept the fact that you will be overly obese for the rest of your life.? You deserve to have a better you.? Start eliminating obesity now and say goodbye to it for the rest of your life.?

Obesity and Society – 5 Ways of Helping the Obese

Why should we take steps towards helping the obese? Well they generally have to live a life with many great struggles. You might compare them to the handicapped, disabled or those who are too old and too sick to see about themselves. Some of us may have contributed to the stigmatization these people face at one point or another. Obesity and society with respect to the way we treat the obese is not really different.

The fact is they are human beings with feelings. Like other human beings they are not perfect either. However they are treated unfairly at times. A little compassion towards them would go a long way. After all they may not be entirely responsible for their current situation. What I am saying is to treat them the way you would like to be treated. Here are 5 ways of helping the obese to make them feel better about obesity and society. Some of them may even help you.

1) Stop scorning them:

Unless they have done something to really upset you. You and that person should try to move from the point of conflict without the feelings of anyone getting hurt. Apart from that it won’t hurt to go to an obese individual you may see often and greet them, striking up a conversation and generally be polite to them. If you scorn them and everyone else scorns them, they will feel lonely. You know what it feels like?

2) Imagine yourself in their shoes:

As hard as it might be. Look at various obese people and what they go through. Imagine yourself as one of them if you are not obese yourself. By helping the obese you learn to understand them.

3) Respect:

This goes without saying. Even though their ideals may not be the same as yours, you should still respect their point of view, in the same way you would like them or someone else to respect yours. Call them by their name instead of “fatso” and other derogatory names. Listen to them and make them feel important. Helping obese individuals would not make them feel discriminated.

4) Educating them where necessary:

Many obese individuals are aware of their situation. Some may not be aware of the solutions however. You may know something they do not. For example steps they can take to lose some pounds. Many obese people are constantly seeking weight loss solutions. Some do not really bother trying to lose weight and continue with their current lifestyle. A reason for this could be that they are not aware of the various health hazards linked to obesity. Here is where you come in and help the obese by educating them.

5) Encouraging & supporting them:

As long as they are taking part in a positive endeavor with good intentions, you should provide some encouragement and support to them. They will be able to live better, when someone who is a positive influence is by their side. Being that support base would be a step towards helping the obese in a big way.
