Obesity and Health
Obesity is not healthy!
Obesity is a complex disease where you have an excessive amount of body fat. Obesity increases the risk of many other diseases and health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer. It is a major health problem worldwide. Obesity results when someone takes in much more calories than are needed and in turn the body stores these calories as body fat, and it adds up over the course of time with this complacency to this habit. It becomes an addiction, and it can be cured.
Many factors play a role in obesity however diet, exercise, and lifestyle are the most important. The body is like a temple and what goes in and out is important. The standard American diet involves unhealthy eating choices and junk food. Many foods these days are processed, and fast food also plays a role in obesity. Much of this comes from the quick fix of convenient food. An unhealthy diet such as one that’s high in calories, lacking in fruits and vegetables, full of fast food, and filled with high-calorie beverages and oversized portions contributes to weight gain. There are many ways diet can help obesity including keto friendly and ketogenic diets. New Vitality Centers Medical Weight Loss Program involves the ketogenic diet. Exercise is a crucial part of the process for anyone wanting to reach and maintain a healthy weight. This program allows you to lose rate at a good pace, reduces hunger cravings, and helps you burn fat instead of muscle.
People with obesity are at high risk of developing serious health problems. That cannot be said enough. Obesity increases your chances of having high blood pressure and abnormal cholesterol levels, both of which are risk factors for heart disease and stroke. Obesity can have an impact on how the body uses insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. This increases the likelihood of insulin resistance and diabetes. Obesity increases the risk of heartburn, gallbladder disease, and liver problems. Obese people are more likely to suffer from sleep apnea, a potentially fatal disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. Obesity increases the likelihood of developing severe and life-threatening symptoms if infected with the virus that causes coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Obesity can have a negative impact on one’s overall quality of life. You may be unable to engage in physical activities that you previously enjoyed. Some people avoid going to public places. Obese people may face discrimination as well.
