How do you define disease? Is an epidemic something to be concerned with? Yes. The obesity epidemic is dire, because nearly 36% of adults in the U.S. and almost 20% of children are obese. This puts them all at risk for stroke, heart disease, diabetes and a multitude of other diseases that are preventable. The short explanation of this syndrome is a poor diet, lacking protein nutrition and being overrun with trans fats, fast foods, processed foods, salt, sodas and many other poor choices in their diet followed up by a sedentary lifestyle without exercise.
Stress is a also MAJOR component of your lifestyle. Regardless of what you do, this can have a big impact on your health and how you feel. Believe it or not, it affects every action in your body, even on a cellular level. Worry, anger, bitterness, stress….none of which you can control from others or the outside world, actually controls your body. So….just let it go!!! Find ways to relieve it. You’ll live longer and be healthier. A great saying is…. “5% of life is the actual event, and 95% of life is how you respond to that life event”. Just think about that for a minute…..it’s a big difference. Find your balance and you’ll be so much happier.
Now, many physicians are starting to believe this actually is a disease, or better said, a metabolic syndrome that is rampant, one that requires immediate treatment as well as prevention. Although the average healthy person might say it is really just laziness and overeating, it is being discovered that genetics and metabolic challenges, even hormones and age are playing a large role in obesity. The key is regulating your hormones (especially thyroid, but also testosterone in men), making sure your liver is supported and the main thing is to change your lifestyle habits and stay on top of them.
The key is to turn off your insulin requirements and its overstimulating of insulin output…..stop snacking, regulate your meals by limiting your calories and even drinking a meal replacement drink for breakfast and lunch, or focus on solely protein intake….then having just a lean protein dinner with green vegetables only….no carbs, no alcohol, no caffeine. The goal is to reset your body’s computer. For some, it can take only days or a week or two, for others in a more severe state, it might take 6-8 weeks. Exercise is not the only answer, but can speed the process up. Weight loss, however, is essential, so achieving that through a strict and limited diet or a combination of that with cardio exercise might be what it takes.
You’ll feel amazing…..and…..you’ll even LOSE WEIGHT!!! And…..keep it off!
Drugs and surgery are not the answer. We each have a responsibility regarding our bodies and our weight. This obesity didn’t happen overnight and we can’t restore it overnight. Like anything of importance, if you focus on it, you will make it happen.
Live happy and eat well. ( :
