Why Being Overweight Is Dangerous to Health

Why Being Overweight Is Dangerous to Your Health

A recent study has shown that only 12 percent of American adults are metabolically healthy, and this percentage reduces to 8.0 and 0.5 in overweight and obese people, respectively. This is an alarming situation as 42.5% of Americans above 20 are obese, which means almost one-third of the population is not healthy.

Obesity is one of the most underrated health disorders that can cause many severe health problems. Some of them include Type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, sleep apnea, liver problems, gall bladder stone and irritation, kidney failure, and even cancer in some cases.

Why Most People Fail at a Weight Loss Program

Why Most People Fail at a Weight Loss Program

We understand that everyone’s body is different, and it's not easy to keep up with a predefined weight loss program. Here are some reasons why most people fail in successfully losing weight.

  1. Setting Up Unrealistic Goals
    To be successful in your weight reduction journey, you must set clear, realistic objectives. We will provide you with short-term, attainable objectives that will result in keeping the weight off for the long term.
  2. Emotional Eating
    Many people mistake eating as a coping method when upset or anxious. This is harmful since it can lead to eating as a compulsive behavior. We will teach you how to correct unhealthy behaviors and have a healthier attitude toward food.
  1. Fad Diets
    People are constantly seeking fast remedies, and weight reduction is no exception. Fad diets and hunger diets are examples of 'quick-fix' diets. This is not a healthy technique to reduce weight since it ignores each individual's unique needs.
  2. Physiological Problems
    Even if you think you're doing everything properly, there might be underlying conditions like hormonal imbalance or thyroid disorders preventing weight loss. If you feel something is wrong, contact us today. Our specialists will take a look at your entire medical history to see what plan will be best for you.
