How to Prevent Obesity

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

The epidemic of fattiness is spreading at an unprecedented pace. We live in a world where it is so easy to earn fattiness.  This entire information means that now we must be more prudent than whenever before. You need to take everything under control to avoid the accumulation of excess fat in the body to such degree that it is bad for your health, leading to reduced life expectancy and increasing of health problems. You can achieve this by preventing and reducing any causes of obesity.

Follow the Correct Nutrition

  • Be sure that you get enough amounts of fruit and vegetables. New and new guidelines and the updated version of the food pyramid focusing more on fruit and vegetables (mainly vegetables) are appearing every year. Your diet is advised to be based on a greater degree of colored products, as well as protein and low fat dairy products. If all your meals contain fruit and/or vegetables (potatoes don’t count!) as the main ingredient, everything is correct.
  • Think of the rich in protein and low-fat dairy products. Protein is a necessary element of our diet. It strengthens and builds your muscular tissues as well as suppresses your appetite – it means that you will not drag on the night chocolate, thus nullifying all the efforts that you have applied during the day.
  • Limit your consumption of processed and refined foods. If there is only one cause of the adiposity epidemic, it’s due to the fact that the packaged, refined grain is one of the most affordable products on the planet. You can take a cookie, a piece of bread or a bag of chips and go away. Of course, it is convenient now, but it will bring the destruction later.

Water and Full Breakfast

  • Drink water. Advantages of it are almost innumerable. Your skin is cleaned, your organs are washed out, you reduce the level of toxins, and you feel energized in addition to losing weight. If you drink water, you don’t want to drink sweet, high-calorie drinks, wanting to compensate the temporary lack of caffeine and consuming empty calories. The research informs that in case you raise your water drinking quantity to at least a liter a day, you will lose weight gradually – without other causes. Men are recommended to drink about 3 liters, and women – about 2.
  • Have a breakfast. It is a quick way to cut down your calorie intake. Although in the morning you will feel a lack of calories, studies have shown that you are more than catch up, swallowing a big dinner. In addition, you will feel sluggish all morning, waiting for the burst of energy during your lunch break. Try to find time for a full breakfast.

Healthy Lifestyle

Running Human

  • There you do not need to be a genius: exercises are useful for you, they help to keep you in shape and can improve your mood. Ideally, you should be engaged in moderate-intensity exercise for 30 minutes a day. But no matter how much you do – it is a step in the right direction. You must not sign to the gym or buy running shoes and start to save for the inevitable knee replacement operation. Make exercises a part of your lifestyle, but not what you are forced to engage yourself in. Go hiking, swim, and sign up for the race. Even if the exercises don’t work, they are fun, and you’ll be more likely to deal with them.
  • Use active transport. If this is possible in your lifestyle, keep the car in the garage. In such a case you do not only help the environment, but also get to a point in the most useful way to be healthy. Biking or walking to your destination will give you fresh air, help to burn calories and allow you to reach the goal.
  • Focus on changing habits, and not on your weight. To avoid fattiness forever, you cannot hope that the diet or the latest fashion trends bring you permanent results that you are looking for. Health should be a way of your life – without other options, no “if” and “but” in this issue. This should be the way you live. So instead of focusing on numbers on the scales, focus on your habits.

Correct Life Regime

  • Stop sitting in front of the screen of the TV. In these days, people spend on average 34 hours a week watching television, and that’s not even including your phone, tablet, or computer. Do you imagine what you are doing when you are sitting in front of TV? You do not move and do not achieve the result, that’s for sure!
  • Get enough sleep. This, in general, is the ideal diet: sleep more, and at the same time lose weight. This is not only because you do not eat during sleep, but also because the sleep regulates hormones such as leptin and ghrelin. It is the key to ensure yourself that you do not feel hungry and satiety only. It is amazing!

Walk This Path Together

  • Keep your child’s health. If you choose the wrong way from an early age, it will be much harder to get back into normal lifestyle. So start working on the kids now! If you are sure that they take the right decisions, it will also help you to make your own correct decisions.
  • Be a role model. If your child sees you devouring a bag of chips, he will do the same. Show him that correct nutrition is something normal and for every day. If you do not want to eat potato chips, then he would not want them too.
  • Encourage your children. This means that it is necessary to promote physical activity, drink water and eat only when you are hungry. It’s good idea to suggest doing something active together or bringing a glass of water when they are thirsty. Eat together, so they do not eat alone (or more often). But do not use harmful products such as the award – they will associate it with something desirable.

How To Prevent Fattiness In Children

Child with Cake

  • Increase physical activity of your child. It is recommended that children and teenagers receive physical activity of moderate intensity on a daily basis at least for an hour a day.
  • Take into attention that there are psychological risks. Obese children suffer from social discrimination. This state of stress in a child can lead to low self-esteem. This, in turn, can slow down the intellectual and social activity. Such painful conditions should be exterminated prior to the entry into adulthood.
  • Limit the time that your child spends watching TV, video games or the Internet. It is correct to limit spending time in front of the screen to 2 hours . If the child can not control his own time on the Internet, consider the possibility of buying software on a computer with a timer function.
  • Learn about the health risks of childhood adiposity:
  • Cardiovascular diseases caused by high cholesterol, high blood pressure and abnormal glucose tolerance;
  • Asthma;
  • Diabetes of 2 type;
  • Sleep apnea;
  • Hepatic steatosis.

The Consequences of Obesity

Health of Human

First of all, during writing your essay you should know the verity. The truth is that almost everyone has an overweight. Of course, it causes displeasure. Excess weight can even cause depression and low self-esteem. And here not only human prejudices are important, the main role plays actually a real discomfort: the difficulty in finding beautiful and comfortable clothes, dissatisfaction with appearance, and health problems appeared within this condition.

Do not forget to mention in your essay when the weighing machine begins to go off-scale and the ratio of weight and height is significantly disturbed. In its turn, it is fraught with negative consequences in terms of health.

The Threats of Fattiness

Fattiness is a serious threat to health. Each person should know that adiposity is linked to a full “bunch” of very terrible disease states.

You should remember that a high percentage of body fat means:

  • cardiovascular diseases;
  • that it may be a consequence of diabetes;
  • abdominal adiposity (fat accumulation in the abdomen), which is directly connected with the development of ischemic heart disease;
  • the risk of arterial hypertension and other diseases.

Hypertension: Your Blood Pressure Rate Goes Up

Blood Pressure

The blood pressure of obese people is often so high that it creates a real threat to vessels rupture with all the ensuing consequences for health… Treatment of such hypertension, as a rule, is not very successful. The fact is that high pressure is necessary for human’s body with adiposity, because the heart needs to pump blood under higher pressure to this body.

The consequences of hypertension take more lives than AIDS, cancer and tuberculosis which are taken together.

Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is the most common chronic disease of the arteries, with the appearance of single and multiple of lipid niduses, mainly cholesterol sediments that are the plaques in an inner membrane of the arteries. In addition, the acute blockage (occlusion) of the arterial lumen is possible by either thrombus, or (less often) the contents of the broken plaque, or both of them simultaneously, which leads to the formation of niduses of necrosis (heart attack) or gangrene in the organ which is fed by this artery.

There are such risk factors as:

  • smoking,
  • overweight,
  • high level of cholesterol in the blood,
  • high blood pressure,
  • stress,
  • slow-moving lifestyle.

Atherosclerosis is a major factor of lethal outcomes for the majority of our contemporaries. Atherosclerosis is developed much earlier and more frequently in obese people, because of the specificity of their metabolism.

Decrease of Immunity (Metabolic Immunosuppression)

Nowadays, almost everyone knows that the role of immunity is great. In connection with the spread of AIDS, the immunity may be reduced under the influence of various factors. One of such factors is ketone bodies, which are formed in particular during the splitting of fat. A significant part of the energy is produced by the splitting of fat. It is called a «fat type» of energy of obese people. It produces a lot of ketones, and they depress the immune system. Unfortunately, tumors are one of the diseases that are developed on the background of the oppressed immunity. Adiposity is a risk factor for tumor diseases.

The First Result Is Cardiovascular Diseases

First of all, it is very destructive for the heart, because it is forced to provide blood to lots of areas of the body. The raise of the loads on the cardiovascular system leads to the cardiac enlargement with thickening it muscle walls and strengthening of the beats. The result is high blood pressure, development of hypertension. The person is cured by pills, unsuccessfully trying to reduce the pressure, but the correct treatment is to lose weight. The “extra” lipids are saved on the walls of blood vessels and form plaques that overlap lumen of blood vessels and disturb blood circulation.

If the weight exceeds the norm by more than 10%, the risk of stroke, coronary heart diseases and other ailments raises. Also, the pressure and cholesterol level are increased, glucose is accumulated as the cells are unable to split it. Load on the heart is raised even during rest state if you have overweight.

Your Liver Is Under Attack

Human Liver

The liver is the second organ, which falls under attack of fattiness. Products, which we eat, are made up of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. And carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the body. All carbohydrate food turns into glucose in a small human intestine, which enters into the blood, and then (as a reserve) to the liver where it is converted into glycogen. It is a substance that is very similar to a kissel. Normally, the liver can contain 90 g of glycogen, and the rest is converted to fat. In other words, it is sent to adipose stocks of the body. If carbohydrate intake is greater than 90 g, or there is a systematic overeating, the liver will begin to be overfilled with fats. And gradually, its cells are transformed into a source of fat reserves.

Increasing Risk of Diseases

Adiposity has influence not only on the heart, but also on the bowel. Abundant nutrition leads to over-work of the digestive system. And over time, it will not be able to cope with such load. The frequent consequences of adiposity such as gastritis with low acidity, biliary dyskinesia, cholecystitis, chronic pancreatitis, colitis are appearing. The permanent result of fattiness is hypothyroidism. It means a lack of T4 thyroxine hormone of thyroid gland in blood. As a result of hypothyroidism, metabolism of the patient slows down, it becomes sluggish and passive. This disease is so often accompanied by adiposity, that endocrinologists don’t always prescribe research on hormones of obese people with excess weight.

Respiratory Issues

Overweight and fattiness in particular impede the work of the respiratory system. There is a great probability of apnea acquisition (stop of breathing during sleep). Also, it causes the development of snore, tiredness, pain in the heart area.

Diabetes

Cakes, candies, pies

It is ten times more likely to find diabetes in overweight people, comparing to people with normal weight.

A clear link was noticed between the fattiness and diabetes of II type (non-insulin dependency). The opportunity of getting this disease increases with excess weight in forty times.

Hormonal Issues

There are various hormonal disorders that appear due to excess weight. Pre-diabetes state arises when the body requires more and more insulin to regulate glucose rates. The level of hormone growth is reduced. It causes development of dishormonal disturbances that can lead to the menstrual cycle disturbances or impotence. Testosterone rate is often reduced in men, and in women, in contrast, the level of testosterone is increased, and progesterone level is lowered.

Other Consequences

The extra kilos are an additional burden for the joints and spine, which have to constantly carry a huge load on themselves. If you are able to cope with excess weight in time, you will save yourself from premature deterioration of the joints and painful hurt in old age. Almost all diseases, including influenza, pneumonia, acute respiratory diseases occur to obese people much harder. They require long-term treatment and more often cause complications. It is also known that the body of obese people is much worse internalized by drugs that are introduced via injections. In such cases, the injections do not get into the muscle, as it should be, but in the fatty tissue.
