The First Steps To Curing Obesity

Obesity has become an epidemic, especially in The United States. An average of 300,000 Americans die each year and nearly $200 billion is spent on illnesses related to obesity. 

Obesity can affect your legs and back. It can raise your blood pressure and even cause diabetes. 

We are becoming fat and lazy, but before we can conquer the problem, we have to start accepting responsibility for our own actions. What you are about to read may offend some people, but it needs to be said. 

Many people suffer from being overweight. It may result from a stocky build, slow metabolism, or some other physical reason, but it is a fact of life for many people. They will probably struggle with it their entire lives. 

But obesity is different. A very miniscule percentage of obese people have medical reasons for their condition. The rest of them just cannot stop shovelling the food in long enough to see the consequences of their actions. 

How many times have you been in a restaurant or at a party and watched an obviously obese person shovelling in the food and drinking a diet soda? Do they think the diet soda will make all that fat and calories go away? It doesn't work that way.

 

Please understand that the following suggestions are only the beginning of a very long and bumpy road to recovery. But even the longest journey begins with a single step.

 

  1. PUT DOWN THAT TWINKIE! Someone, right this minute, is probably reading this article and eating something fattening. If not, it has probably been less than an hour since they have last eaten. 

Before they can recover from their problem, they have to admit that they have one. And that Twinkie is the first sign. 

If this is you and you feel that you absolutely must eat something, get some fresh fruit or vegetables. They not only contain the essential nutrients that your body needs for good health, but some will actually burn more calories that they replace.

 

  1. See your doctor. If you are more than 50 pounds overweight, only a fool would recommend any diet plan until you are medically cleared by your physician. 

Your doctor can also advise you on the best programs to help you get started. 

This cannot be emphasized enough. Once you have eliminated the fattening foods, see your doctor before going one step farther.

 

  1. Consider seeing a counsellor. Is there a deep seated, subconscious reason for your obesity or are you just a pig? The answers may surprise you. 

Once you discover the reasons for your self-destructive behaviour, you will be better equipped to handle them. 

If you cannot afford counselling, talk to a trusted friend or, if you are a religious person, perhaps someone at your church. 

They may not be able to diagnose your problem, but they can be there for you when you encounter those bumps in the road to recovery.

 

The bottom line is this. Curing your obesity and getting fit not only will increase the likelihood of a longer life, it will make that life much more pleasant. 

Maybe it's time you stopped looking

for sympathy and give yourself

a swift kick in the pants.

Getting Obesity Help

Obesity help can come in many shapes and sizes. Family members and friends can lodge their support by dieting with you or helping you to diet alone. Doctors can help by referring you to a nutritionist and prescribing you some appetite suppressants (also known as diet pills, be wary of them). Nutritionists will help you by coming up with a diet plan which you abide by and then concentrating on an exercise routine when you can manage one. 

Another new way to help people suffering from obesity is to perform surgical procedures such as extensive gastric bypass; where portions of the stomach are removed, gastric banding; placing what seems like an elastic band around your stomach, panniculectomy; removing pieces of stomach (also known as a tummy tuck). These are just some of the procedures available and are only for use in drastic times. Many people can lose weight without these operations and therefore do not need to put themselves through a lot of pain which is consistent with each of these operations. 

When accepting help for your obesity make sure it is a plan that you will stick to and work for as motivation does decrease very quickly, a lot of weight falls of at the beginning but when the first initial few weeks are past the weight will fall of slowly and you will start to get cravings so that needs to be taken into consideration and whatever you do don't attempt a quick fix fad diet all they will do is mess up your insides. The best way to lose weight is to eat properly and sensibly. 

Obesity help is available all around you; there are adverts on the television, books, videos and programmes to help people who have problems losing weight. Why not join a slimming class? That way you are not alone in our efforts and you meet people in the same position as you. Slimming groups tend to follow healthy eating programmes and have a weight in every couple of weeks so you can keep record on how well you are doing! They then reward people with certificates to keep for losing weight; these certificates offer a big motivational surge and help you to keep on going.

 

Don't let others get you down by saying "oh you've not lost that much" keep your spirits high by telling yourself that at least you have lost something and you have dedicated yourself and put in a lot of effort, by doing so you will continue the chain of weight loss and inevitably make you feel a lot better!
