Do Your Part to Reverse the Obesity Epidemic
Obesity is an ongoing issue that affects millions of people worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have labeled obesity as a chronic disease. What makes obesity so dangerous is that it causes so many other health conditions. Heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, neck and spine issues and affects the overall quality of life for individuals struggling with the problem.
The Diet Roller Coaster
The thinking around weight loss has been consistent for decades. If you need to lose weight, go on a "diet." There are plenty of diet products to help achieve this, as well as diet supplements. You're told to consume less food, and to choose low-calorie "diet foods" and that you will lose weight.
Sometimes, it works. Sometimes drastically cutting calories and consuming low-calorie foods will help you lose weight, but you will likely find that you gain it back. Not only that, but standard dieting practices often leave you feeling awful. At best, they are difficult to maintain; at worse, they are extremely unhealthy. Low energy levels are common with these strategies. The outcome is often gaining back lost weight, and then some. This is where the term "yo-yo dieting" originates. For so many people, dieting is an ongoing, unsuccessful process.
What Is The Solution?
Long-term weight loss comes from a healthy lifestyle. WHO and the CDC have recommended promotion of healthy lifestyle choices in order to halt the obesity epidemic that affects so many people. Whole foods and a diet low in sugar and processed foods seem to be the key to affecting real change.
