The dangers of obesity

Obesity is caused by the fact that the amount of food entering the modern human body far exceeds the amount needed to produce energy. As a result the unspent remainder is transformed into fat. The quality of food also matters. If they are based on easily absorbed carbohydrates, they will accumulate in the form of unsightly folds.

Overweight should not be perceived simply as a visual flaw. It is a risk factor for many diseases. The more adipose tissue accumulates, the more damaging its influence on the organism becomes.

Warning: patients with excess body weight are three times more likely to suffer from diabetes, two times more likely to suffer from liver and cardiovascular system abnormalities, compared to people of normal weight.

Obesity is a systemic disease that can affect the function of all internal organs. It helps a lot of people:

Among the diseases that overweight provokes:

Alzheimer’s disease;
male impotence;
varicose veins;
angina pectoris;
respiratory disorders;
apnea (sudden respiratory arrest in sleep);
heart attack;
gallbladder abnormalities;
diseases of the digestive tract;
menstrual disorders.
It is scientifically proven that obesity increases the likelihood of developing breast, thyroid, colon, gallbladder, and kidney cancer. The relationship between being overweight and malignancies of the esophagus as well as the endometrium is most clearly seen. On average, fat deposits shorten a person’s life by 12 to 15 years.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that obese people have impaired metabolism – this slows down the process of losing weight. But, the situation is reversible. It is possible to “lose” even the biggest weight. To do this, you first need to change your diet. The main mistake of many people is that they try to give up food altogether. As a result, periods of fasting are followed by breakdowns. The weight comes back in even larger amounts, health problems arise. A professional nutritionist should take care of the diet for someone who is obese.
