OBESITY is a worldwide disease

OBESITY is a worldwide disease
It is actually not a disease but OBESITY is considered a disease in some places because it is the primary cause of heart and other organ problems. Physicians say that obesity is a kind of syndrome that people undergo when they are under stress for a long period. But some obese people admit that they have a voracious appetite that they cannot control the intake of food especially when there is an occasion and food is abundant on the table. The only way to combat obesity is not just the exercise but the moderation of eating and the selection of the right food to eat. For the obese to control their weight, check the kind of food that you eat and your lifestyle as well regarding physical activities.

Yes, I do believe obesity is a worldwide disease. Obesity is connected to a lot of health problems like having a high blood pressure and diabetes. Exercise is very important to fight this disease I have to know I lot of fat people who went to the gym and after a few months, they had some amazing results. The right diet is also very important to combat this disease, eating the right food and having the right discipline on the amount of food you consume is the key to a healthier body.

I agree with you. It's just the lifestyle that should be improved. Well, it sounds easy, but it's hard to implement. You should discipline yourself to achieve good results

One of the main causes of obesity is purely thermodynamic: when a person consumes more calories than he spends, the difference of the equation is an excess of energy, which is stored in the form of fat. In this sense, bad eating habits and sedentary lifestyle appear as the main components.

Obesity is everywhere. It can even happen to you. You just have to monitor your lifestyle, the way you eat and the way you are after eating.

I think junk food has contributed to a lot of health issues. The amount of thinking that has been changed due to progressive mentality. I think that also is responsible on that note. I hope that too changes.

Obesity is growing fast. People are getting obese everyday. Bad eating habits, no exercise, sitting for hours together in front of systems are the main causes for becoming obese. You should exercise daily, take short gaps in work, go out for a short walk will help a lot.

Yes, if a person have a sedentary lifestyle then, they would probably develop obesity. As much as possible when we are getting older, we should avoid or limit drinking alcohols, smoking and eating unhealthy foods like junk foods and those that are in fast foods because the tendency is people tend to gain more weight. We should exercise regularly to burn some excess fats in our body.

There are also some interactions with the environment. Living in certain areas, such as in cold climates or at high altitudes, can generate a predisposition to obesity. In addition, there is a genetic component, although it is less evident: there are people more efficient than others in the transformation of energy, and that also influences in gaining or losing weight.

I think junk food if controlled properly. It can surely be the change that needs to be taken into understanding. I have found out that obesity needs to be properly handled as some sort of national crisis or so.

Since the beginning of the century, the percentage of hungry people had been decreasing. It has rebounded in the last three years, but it remains around 800 million people, according to UN data. In contrast, the number of people with overweight and obesity problems does not stop increasing. It's something that seemed unthinkable half a century ago, but the world is home to more people with overfeeding problems than hungry ones.

I do believe that aside from healthy lifestyle, parental guidance is also a great help to avoid obesity. Many children are into bad eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle because their parents are also in the same lifestyle. If only the parents start a healthy lifestyle with good eating habits and proper exercise, we can minimize the numbers of obesity in the world. The solution will start from us.

Yes that's true. Parents should know what types of foods to offer to the children. Also, they should introduce some vegetables as early as possible so that child will familiarize the taste of vegetables and be a good role to our children.

That's right. I guess, some parents fail to realize that pampering their children too much with too much food and unhealthy food everyday is not good anymore.

Yes, obesity is very common these days. Maybe one of the cause is because of eating in fast foods every day especially to the children. Parents should see to it that there child should get an enough and nutritious amount of food on their lunch box instead of giving money to buy some lunch.

Obesity is undoubtedly one of the most major health problem faced by people throughout the World. Obesity can lead to various diseases and health problems in the long run. The most unfortunate thing is that there is an increase in the number of children and teenagers who are facing this problem these days. The main reason for the increase in the number of people facing this problem is the increase in the consumption of fast food and the lack of physical activity and exercise. If one is able to change there lifestyle and make a concious attempt to live a healty life then you can easily overcome this problem. Stress management through activities like Yoga and Meditation can also be very helpful in tackling the problem of Obesity.

True. I have seen children and teens suffering from high blood pressure and heart attack because of obesity. There was this kid who suffered from a stroke. Definitely very scary. Parents should guide their children to a healthy living.

We have a classmate during our college days who was paralyzed due to hypertension. According to her mother, she eats french fries and fried chicken every day. It's okay to eat in fast food but should limit of how many times we should eat.

It's true, obesity is one of the modifiable risk factor to a person to develop lifestyle disease such as hypertension, diabetes milletus, cancer and other. It's good if as young as we are, we have to omit fatty foods and other products that are high in cholesterol which may cause weight gain. We have to make it a habit to exercise regularly, eat healthy food and get enough amount sleep. As much as possible, we have to know how to manage stress because it can also be a problem.

I agree that amount of the junkfood and the bad food is rising. And that makes consuming the food and then not making movement. That adds up more weight. You can see that leads to not much using the brain. And that leads to the worldwide disease in that case. I would say on that note it's better to have healthy food something you make on your own.

I believe that obesity has become an epidemic. It is a problem that is not easily solved. Obesity is caused by a lot of factors such as our lifestyle. I think that lifestyle is the biggest factor. The foods that we eat and being a "couch potato" contributes to it. People do not exercise and they only watched television while eating.

Obesity is a world wide disease: Yes it is consider in some country due to the number of person who are admitted to the hospital due to heart attack, high blood preassure, diabetes and the likes and all of those are becuase of the obesity. Luckily in our place obesity is not really an issue and you can only see 1-2 people who has it. It was maybe because of the food they use to eat and a luck of a descipline to the self.

Population is increasing as obesity is becoming an epidemic. This is just a reminder that everyone should be conscious with our health as being an obese can cause a lot of sickness . From diabetes to highblood and others are diseases you can get from being obese. You need enough discipline for you to become fit and healthy.

Yes. I personally know a lot of people who are obese and I'm really worried about them. I always remind them to watch what they eat or go for a little walk but I feel like they're not listening to me or they just can't control themselves.

Kids don't understand consequences, if you tell them eating sugar will make them fat, they wont get it until they're fat. If you never tell them that, then they won't understand why they're fat. Nutritional education is left up to the parents. So if a kid has a lazy parent or one that has bad eating habits themselves, then they won't have any idea that you look how you eat.

Yes. It's same as when I was a kid, brushing the teeth, especially after meals and after eating sweets is a must. But, I didn't realize that it's really important until I developed problems with my teeth.

Obesity is a serious disease that needs treatment. I see so many young, obese people, all over the world. Obese people are unhealthy. They may have more diseases and problems than people who are not obese. One should take care of his/her body, not only because of the looks but because of the health condition. The obese people should exercise a lot and be patient. And the weight will be reduced! Patience and organization! Those are the keys for beating obesity!

I agree with the thought of this discussion about obesity, that obesity is a bad thing. Some people think that when you're fat, you are healthy. Most of us think that when you have malnutrition, you are thin.

I think that the only countries that don’t have issues with obesity are developing countries where food is scarce. Otherwise, I’d say that almost all developed countries have problems with obesity, with certain exceptions like Japan. I’d say that the biggest issue is readily available, highly processed and incredibly cheap food. Food that requires actually cooking is not only healthier for you, but also more expensive. Most people feel why buy organic, healthy food, and cook a decent meal when I can just pay for a cheap burger and fries but feel just as full? This sort of mentality--as well as ignorance towards the dangers of highly processed, sugary junk foods—is what’s leading to a worldwide epidemic in obesity.

You are right that price and availability of food is also a factor. Most of us can't afford to buy all organic food and ingredients as it is really expensive, when on a budget, eating food is priority and it being healthy is not. There are also others who are always in a hurry and don't have time to prepare food for themselves and have no choice but to get what is available and that tends to always be unhealthy types of food.

Not necessarily. A lot of countries that are poor or developing have extremely high rates of obesity. Of the 20 countries where obesity grows fastest, eight are African. Three out of four children who suffer from obesity live in Asia and Africa. Excessive weight is no longer a problem only of rich countries or citizens: poverty, a low educational level or vulnerability appear more and more as a risk factor. The archipelagos of the Caribbean (and those of the Pacific) also present alarming numbers of overweight persons. In countries like Tonga (an island nation of Oceania), eight out of 10 persons that are over 18 years old weigh more than they should, and half are obese.

A lot of factors contribute to obesity. I think the main factor is the food we consume. Our goods are packed full of artificial things and other preservatives. There's also a wide variety of junk foods and sugary drinks. Add those food with lack of exercise in our digital age and there you have it. But I don't agree with calling it a disease, it's a worldwide concern and problem but let's not use disease to term this out.

A healthy and proper diet is what is needed. You are correct that many of the regular food we have on the market that we consume daily are unhealthy and those kinds of food are what's readily available and is cheaper, hence the reason more people consume it. There are cases where a person's obesity is a disease though, and they need to have a surgery to correct their thyroid gland.

Lifestyle is important. Others make exercising a big deal but most people I know that exercise regularly just incorporate them with the things that they do for leisure. There are many ways to exercise naturally like walking, trekking, riding a bike, etc. When you are having fun then exercising is not a goal its just a casual thing that you do that happens to be beneficial for your health.

Can you really call a life choice a disease, as the main reason why people gain loads of weight is that they have decided to stuff themselves full of unhealthy foods'.
All calling obesity a disease does it to encourage people not to lose weight as they start thinking it is out of there control.

People simply lack self-control! Many of them complain and moan and say they have tried everything but nothing seems to be working. Really? Have they tried reducing the quantity of food they eat? Many of them have tried everything except reducing the quantity of food they eat and they expect not to become obese? I know some people's obesity is caused by some medical problems but many are caused because they eat unhealthy foods in large quantities and fail to exercise.

For centuries obesity was an almost exclusive problem of the rich, the ones who could afford to eat food to spare. Even today those who suffer from obesity drag the stigma of being guilty of gluttony or lack of self-control. However, now the epidemic has also reached -and the rates increase every year- the poor. Countries that barely produce food are forced to import almost everything, which constitutes a great nutritional problem. Healthy and fresh food became too expensive to buy; instead, people choose to consume cheap, but low-quality meals that are choke-full of sugar, food preservatives and almost no vitamins.

Being obese means that you are lacking self-discipline. If you are disciplined with your eating habits, you won't be obese in the first place. I think what should be cured is the "self-discipline". It is the root. But in some cases, obesity is a result of some problems in their hormones. In that case, that is an exception.

Being overweight and obesity are defined as "the abnormal or excessive accumulation of fat in the body that can be detrimental to health". Although there are genetic or environmental factors that can influence this, the main cause of obesity is precisely to consume more calories than you can burn with your daily activity. And the vast majority of health experts qualify the negative effects and associated ailments that come with obesity as "epidemic".

Obesity is spreading, with hardly any geographical exceptions, and it has become a global health problem. Even in poor or developing countries, extreme malnutrition already coexists with obesity. This phenomenon does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
