How can you deal with obesity?
The two main causes of obesity are the consumption of pre-packaged and junk foods, and a lack of exercise and outdoor activities.
It has now become a very serious problem in Western societies. It has been recorded in some European countries that school uniforms for children and teenagers are, on average, being produced in larger sizes.
Obesity in society is a complex problem and there are many causes. However, for most people, a few lifestyle changes can reverse the ill-effects of obesity. If you suffer from obesity, reaching your healthy weight is an attainable goal, no matter how daunting it may seem at first.
Whether you go it alone or look for the help and advice of a dietician, you need to examine your diet. Cutting back on the amount you eat or changing the types of food you eat can make a big difference.
However, crash diets are not the answer. You should be able to eat a healthy, tasty, balanced diet and lose weight at the same time. The food pyramid will show you how to meet all your nutritional needs.
Pick a healthy meal plan that is low in calories and suits your taste. Try to stick to this and do not to give into temptation. Eating healthily does not mean you cannot eat well so check out some cook books on how to spice up healthy meals.
Exercising regularly is a vital part of losing weight. Not only will it help you lose weight, it will keep you feeling healthier and happier, and you will have much more energy for the things you enjoy doing. Although it may not seem like an attractive prospect at first, you will be glad you did it once you get into the habit.
Doctors recommend that we do some form of exercise that increases our heart rate for at least 30 minutes every day. Not only will this help you lose the pounds, it also burns off toxins in the body that can make you ill and prevent any number of health problems.
Do not bite off more than you can chew. The trick is to start slowly. Walking is an excellent form of exercise. Start with short distances and you will soon be comfortable walking, or even jogging, for a few miles.
Of course, there are many, many sports and activities you can take part in. Tennis, dancing, martial arts, football, the list is endless.
If you are unsure about it, try going along to your local gym and talk to a personal trainer who will take you through the first steps and come up with a plan that will bring you back to full fitness and help you lose the pounds.
Losing weight is not always easy. Most likely you will have to make some significant changes in your lifestyle. You may have to abstain from some of your favourite foods and be active when you just feel like watching some TV. However, this doesn't mean you can't enjoy life.
Also remember that your actions will have a knock-on effect on those around you. If you are fit and healthy, your family and friends will be more likely to be fit and healthy so you will be doing a lot of good.
Obesity is a big problem in the United States and around the World today and for many people it is something they cannot avoid.
However, for many of us it is a choice we make, a choice about our lifestyle.

For Stress and Obesity
Advances in science and technology have revolutionized how people live and work. The breakthroughs in 21st Century medical science have extended life expectancy rates and wiped out some of the diseases that were once thought to be incurable.
Still, these modern miracles have fallen short of eradicating two of the most troublesome conditions that have afflicted mankind: stress and anxiety. No matter how many vitamins we take, or how many fitness programs we try... absolutely no one can get immunity from life's woes.
Another health problem that poses a challenge to medical science is the silent plague of obesity. According to the U.S. Obesity Society, at least 64% of Americans are now obese or overweight. The dramatic changes in food intake or diet, the ease of transportation, and the change of work into a more sedentary activity have all contributed to the rise of obesity.
But another major factor that has been left behind in the news is the fact that stress is a contributing cause for obesity. What comes to mind when you are trying to beat the deadline? What comes to mind when you become so tense just thinking about the upcoming bar exams? What comes to mind when you feel over worked? Food! Food! and More Food! You begin to develop food cravings as a way to relax your nerves and keep your mind off your problems for a while. You can hear it calling inside your head "Come to me....taste me! How delicious I am today!" Your mind suddenly is filled with swirling images of cakes, cookies, candies, chocolate bars, donuts, burgers....and, mind you, not just plain burgers --- we're talking about double cheese burgers with extra toppings.
It is true that eating is one of the most common escapes for troubled souls. No wonder there is such as term as "comfort food." Depressed people are more prone to give in to food cravings. Studies show that an average healthy individual carries around about seven to ten pounds of toxic waste. So it is not hard to imagine how much waste overweight people have to move around with. Other studies reveal that 10 percent of people who are overweight actually began overeating as a means to escape from their anxieties. The pleasures of eating had become a way to block off all negative thoughts and feelings.
Having a healthy body and a healthy mind is something that we cannot achieve separately. In fact, our thoughts have a very big influence on how our bodies feel. Somehow, our bodies show our mental and emotional condition. Obesity, therefore, could probably be a sign of a more serious emotional and psychological problem.
Stress and anxiety, as indirect causes of overeating and obesity, must be addressed squarely in order to avoid more serious health problems. To determine whether you or a person you know is being slowly sucked into a stress spiral, see if you have any of these stress symptoms:
High Blood Pressure
Changes in sleep patterns
Aside from managing our eating habits, we also need to manage our emotions. The daily pressures at work and at home can be too much for some people. Most urbanites and executives are trapped in a life in constant rush. Busy people can become so frantic that even their eating habits can be affected. Just observe a regular restaurant in the middle of the business and financial district. Most likely, you'll notice people just gobbling up whatever is in their plate...not really enjoying the meal. And to make it worse, they eat enormous amounts of food thinking that they need to replenish themselves after having worked so hard. The worst part is that instead of getting good nutrition, busy people consume high fat, high calorie foods that are not good for one's health.
So, if you are serious about not getting too fat or becoming overweight, you must eliminate the many things that can cause stress in your life. More than just controlling the amount of food you eat, you should also try one or more of the following health-enhancing activities:
1.Try out a Yoga Program or DIY Yoga - all you need is a mat and a yoga video showing the different Yoga positions.
2.Laugh till you drop- laughter is still the best medicine.
3.Meditation - although a bit difficult to master it is good stress reliever. it involves focusing inwardly and shutting out all the noise, restore the body and give us calm.
4.Diet - There are certain foods that contributes to a person being stressed out like for instance too much caffeine. Watching what you eat and knowing what essential foods that gives you strength and stamina is vital. Getting the right proteins and balancing it with vegetables keeps you strong and healthy!
A healthy solution to combat stress and obesity is that you must lessen your hectic, fast-paced life.
Get rid of the thousand and one things that bring chaos to your daily life. Eat healthy foods and try to keep in mind to do everything in moderation. Do something else with your hands other than dipping it into bucket of chicken or holding a litre of soda.
When you think about it,
the solutions to stress and obesity
are in your hands.
