Do Your Part to Reverse the Obesity Epidemic


Healthy and Unhealthy Directional Signs

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.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
