Obesity is nowadays a serious problem. Being overweight is one of the leading causes of deaths around the globe, but we all know that obesity also affects our confidence, productivity and overall well-being negatively. We are all aware that people are getting fatter and fatter every day. Even a third of the population in numerous developed countries is obese or overweight.
The fact that people have started treating obesity as a disease is very worrying even in cases when it’s simply an effect of a sedentary lifestyle and an unhealthy diet.
The American Medical Association decided to classify obesity as a disease in 2013. The public was admired, even though there were many people who thought the opposite.
Obesity is a disease because it decreases life expectancy and impairs the normal functioning of anyone who has it, but people only become victims with an excuse for the state of their bodies.
This state of a victim only releases you from personal responsibility and self-reliance and they’re very important if you want to make progress.
Edward Archer, a research fellow with the Nutrition Obesity Research Center at the University of Alabama says, “There are some people who are vigorously active, but this number is offset by the huge number of individuals who are inactive.” This researcher along with his team conducted a study on obesity. The results of the study showed that the average obese woman gets the equivalent of about one hour of exercise per year and the average obese man gets about 3.6 hours of exercise per year.
We are all different. Some of us store fat pretty easily and have difficulty to get rid of it. Our genetics influences our body composition along with the ability to maintain a healthy weight. You shouldn’t avoid the mistakes you made. Start taking care of your body right now!
