I believe we understand the basis and foundation of obesity and even the risks However, the persistent question on my mind is; Can the causing factor also be the curing factor?
OBESITY AND FOOD
Table of Contents
Ok! Let’s go on…
OBESITY, which is the leading disease that is preventable or treatable, is the addition of excess fat to the body till it starts making the body malfunction. It’s the source of uncountable diseases from atherosclerosis to diabetes etc
Do you want to know if you are one or coming close? Simple!
Divide your body weight against your height. (Metres square) For example, I’m 90 by weight and 6ft in meters should be around 1.7m. multiply 1.7 by itself and divide it by your weight and you will know if you are normal, slightly overweight, overweight, obese, or very obese.
25-30 is the range from overweight to obese. 30 upward is the range of obese to very obese.
So let’s say I’m nearing overweight and caution needs to be taken.
What makes FAT so hard to eradicate?
Fat has so many uses in the body. In fact, without normal body fat, the body might suffer different complications.
Before I let you into the reason fat is hard to lose, let me share its functions with you.
3. They underline the skin where they help maintain regular body temperature.
Let’s stop here… Read more yourself.
Fat is hard to eradicate because unlike salt and other substances that can be expelled by urination, sweating, crying, etc, they have no OUTLET. They have to be burnt and the incoming source of fat has to be lowered or cut off.
HOW TO BURN OUT FAT WITHOUT TOO MUCH EXERCISE
Note: These are not for people who don’t want to put in the work and discipline it takes. If you are one, please stop reading!
*Wake up in the morning and drink as much water as you can
* Wait for an hour before you eat. (That’s it majorly)
Functions Of Water Therapy
From experience, it will kill your strong urge for food, junk, and sugary foods. You eat less.
Since it has been researched that the major cause of obesity is food, taking water will cut down the amount of food you take and still make you feel filled (Not hungry).
2. STOP BEING SEDENTARY
Even if your work calls for it, always find time to move around and expend energy.
Make sure you take any opportunity to walk around. Make sure you sweat in a day.
Don’t be lazy. Engage in skipping when less busy, go on a walk and meditate, intentionally, clean your house, wash your car.
Do something that gets your blood moving fast. Engage yourself in judo classes, dancing classes, community service, or any sport you love just for the fun of it.
Cholesterol is a fatty substance made by the body to produce some hormones and maybe vitamins.
It’s essential in the body However, too much of it will form plaques around the artery wall thereby shortening the space where blood is passing.
Blood realising this will want to force itself through thereby causing heart-related problems like artherosclerosis.
So eat good oils (Non-cholesterols) or do Grills!
4. VEGETABLES AND FRUITS
I wrote extensively on this and you can check by clicking here… Fruits and vegetables
They are rich in fibers, antioxidants, and vitamins that not only balance your food intake and enhance digestion but also prevent the build-up of sugar in your body which will eventually be converted to fat if not used.
Probably they have told you but you feel they are exaggerating or you are procrastinating about stopping or reducing it, let me inform you; Sugar is at the core of obesity.
Sugar through a process called Lipogenesis is turned into fat and stored or used in the body. The whole shady deal occurs in the liver when it metabolizes fructose or sucrose into fat.
Sugar will not be left unused in the body; so when there is the excess of it, it get converted to fat and get stored in the body.
Now, sugar doesn’t only causes obesity, sugar also causes diabetes and high blood pressure. Not stopping there, this same sugar also affect your Sterility as a man. TOO MUCH SUGAR IS BAD!!!
*Cut the sodas
* Cut the diary products with lots of sugar
* Cut alcohol (beer); contains sugar too. Alcohol (spirit) weakens your kidney.
* Cut raw sugar intake. Sweet things are cool but not worth my life.
