There is a lot more talk of obesity these
days and you only have to stop in the
street, look around and see just how
many people are overweight
So, just like, alcoholism, drug addiction,
cancer, being hit by a bus or winning the
lottery, it’s always something you think
will happen only to other people
except this one isn’t extreme, it’s more
common to be overweight now than it is
to be a healthy weight
but do you now what obese is?
If you were to join me in the street,
could you pinpoint if someone is obese?
Sure, there are people in the 20 stone
and above category that look obese but
what about someone who isn’t that big?
Do you know that you only have to be
2 and a half stone overweight to be obese?
Most people can carry that amount of
weight and disguise it with some clever
and compared to much heavier friends
or work colleagues they may feel ‘safe’
allowing denial to set it
How does someone become obese?
It’s much easier than you think, eating
is socially acceptable unlike drink or drugs,
you can do it at work, on the train and at
you only need to overeat a small amount
of food each day, like a biscuit for example
and you only need to put on a lb a week for
40 weeks to become obese
It’s scary isn’t it? Technically the whole
population could become obese in a blink
of the eye
Obesity increases your risks of getting just
about every imaginable and horrible health
disease, I’m not going to list them, if you’re
obese and have a medical condition,
chances are they are related
How can you stop obesity?
First, you may need to face reality and get
some help, then with some adjustments to
your eating and adding some exercise you
can get back to a healthier weight.
Working in reverse, looking to drop a
pound a week, no need for radical diets
or signing up for a marathon, just being
sensible and taking one step at a time
If you are at a healthy weight then make
sure you stay there and be aware of any
pounds creeping on
implement good habits like what I coach
in FFS Nutrition and some 1:1
coaching makes a huge difference
