Tackling Obesity: Are You Prepared?

Love is about going past the looks and finding the heart.

Unfortunately, the society we call ourselves a part of has witnessed a significant shift in contrary to what has been said in the beginning of the post. While some cultures still believe obese people to be the most beautiful, majority of the people across the globe are obsessed with a thin waistline.  

Gone are the days when you could just go unnoticed at public places with your baggy clothes assisting you hide those extra pounds. The people who are still obsessed with baggy clothes are seen as old-fashioned and have a hard time mixing up with people around them.

While men don’t seem to care about obesity much, their lifestyles gets hampered in a lot of ways as well. With obesity affecting their working capabilities adversely, it becomes impossible to fulfill their everlasting demand of physical routine work.

Why tackle obesity?

Well, because it affects your body in ways you can’t even imagine. Whether you take obesity seriously or not has got nothing to do with its effects on your life. Taking obesity seriously won’t do any good either unless you plan on doing something to tackle it.

You can recall from your personal experiences regarding the difficulties of being judged for your looks every single day you have survived on this planet. I used the word ‘survived’ rather than ‘lived’ because the standards and beliefs of the society didn’t let you live the way you wanted. The worst feeling is indeed having a proposal turned down just because you looked obese. Always being busy trying to fit in with people is indeed not a pretty feeling to live with everyday.

This is not all. Obesity has some really nasty effects on your body which is not meant to handle this much extra weight. Obese people are a greater risk of developing the following:

  • Heart conditions
  • Type-2 Diabetes
  • Bone and Joint diseases
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Psychosocial Effects

What Are Your Options?

I believe the post so far has made you understand what is happening with you exactly. The feelings arising out of the social stigmas have already made you feel like an outcast. However, with the advancements of medical sciences, the ways to tackle obesity have also gotten smarter.

While the conventional dieting methods can still be preferred for controlling obesity over a period of time, it proves to be totally ineffective for obesity that has advanced to a certain level. Both these methods have proven to be the most effective so far in recent times due to their exceptional capabilities to control the food intake quantities. The reduced amounts of food intake mean reduced nutrient absorption and hence help in reducing your weight.    

Obesity is a serious chronic disease. Over thinking your situation will only get you depressed and limit your options further. If you have read this post, you still have the opportunity to shred those extra pounds and live a healthier life. Don’t miss out on the second chance life has given you.
