Obesity and Binge Eating

Obesity is a condition that has become a major health concern affecting many individuals in the Western Societies and especially the United States. This condition refers to the build-up of excess body fat that may impair health conditions. Obese individuals are prone to health risks like cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, sleep apnoea, and many more. These health hazards have prompted many people to include a weight-loss program in their lifestyles. However many health experts advice individuals to understand the cause weight-gain is essential in preventing the additional cases of obesity. 

Understanding the cause of obesity might enable overweight individuals to treat their health problems. According to clinical studies, one probable cause of obesity among Americans is an eating disorder called binge eating. It is an eating disorder whereby individuals have a strong addiction for food. The cause of this condition is still unclear but experts suggest stress, anxiety, and depression can trigger compulsive eating disorder.

Individuals with this condition crave for food even though they do not need to eat that much. They end up eating too much and not realizing that they should not once they are fool. Individuals with binge eating disorder may gain weight overtime and have obesity problems. However, there are some individuals who have this condition and have normal weight.

 

Eating too much is one of the symptoms of binge eating disorder. Eating when not hungry or eating while being sad, angry, lonely, or bored can also be a symptom of this condition. After binging, one might feel upset, guilty, or depressed. These individuals may also feel alone because they are embarrassed of about how much they eat. Eating in secret is also a symptom of binge eating disorder.

 

The common treatment for binge eating disorder may include the use of medication like antidepressant pill or counselling or a combination of the two. Recent treatment for this condition includes cognitive-behavioural therapy which teaches patients to monitor their eating habits and respond properly to difficult situations.

Treatment for this condition may last for extended period to fully recover. Individuals with this condition which includes depression, obesity, and other conditions that may be associated with being overweight.

 

Health experts advise individuals to include exercise and nutritious diet in their lifestyle to eliminate depression and anxiety. Physical activities promotes the release of endorphins. Endorphins are substances that is released by the brain and is the body's natural pain-reliever. These substance may elevate the mood and promote a state of bliss.

Many health specialists refer to this phenomenon as the runner's high. When this state well-being is accomplished the use for antidepressant pill may not be necessary. For overweight or obese individuals, it is never too late to engage in regular exercise and healthy diets. Exercise is good for different people of all ages, sex, and weight. It is necessary to maintain improved overall health and enhanced well-being.

Individuals who decide to include a regular program of physical activity should consult doctors and other health professionals for advice. This is important because a lot of individuals tend to work out too much or workout improperly, which may do more harm than good.

 

Understanding proper workout and including a healthy diet in one's lifestyle may lead to improved health and overall well-being and therefore eliminate mental disorders that may lead to eating disorders like binge eating.

Overweight?

           Have You Given Away Your Power?

Are you unhappily overweight? Do you despair of getting to the right size and shape for you? Is it because you’ve given away your power? 

Do you let others decide on your portion size?

When you eat in a restaurant, buy a ready meal, buy chocolate or an ice cream, do you let the producer decide what is the amount you should eat by finishing whatever the portion size happens to be? Next time you’re in a restaurant take back your power and decide for yourself when you’ve had enough. 

Do you let inanimate objects decide whether or not you’re a good person that day?

Do you weigh yourself, and feel bad if you haven’t lost weight, letting the scales determine how you feel about yourself? You know your weight will fluctuate from day to day anyway. What’s important is the overall trend. What’s even more important is what type of person you are, not how much you weigh. 

Do you let others decide what your weight should be?

Do you look in the magazines and on the TV, and accept what the media say is an ideal weight? Think about the cost of being that slim. Remember that many of the pictures are digitally enhanced and that the photos are taken by experts who know how to flatter. 

Do you let your parents decide what you are now?

Did your parents show you love through food? Were you made to eat up all the food on your plate? Do you still behave in the same way around food, even though you’re a grown up and allowed so many other things to change? Think of all the things that have changed in your life since you were a child and decide to write your own programme around food. 

Do you let your age determine what you weigh?

Do you believe that “all women” put weight on when they have babies, or when they reach the menopause? Do you believe that “all men” get fatter as they get older? Weight gain as you get older is often because you do less. Get more exercise, take up a new sport – there’s lots of other benefits than simply weight-management. 

Do you let science decide why you’re overweight?

Do you believe that it’s “genetic” and that there’s nothing you can do about it?

If you believe that, then that is what will happen: you’ll come to look like the rest of your family.

Remember that genes only set the framework of what you are – the rest is up to you. 

Take back your power,

and the control over what you weigh.
