If you’re looking for some useful tips for overcoming obesity, then this article was written for you. In particular, we’re going to talk about exercise, eating healthier and tracking your progress. By the time you have finished reading this article, you’ll have a good general overview of how to deal with this naturally and healthily.

Tip 1 – Start exercising.

If you’re inexperienced when it comes to regular exercise, then it’s wise to start slow. Simply walking for an hour a day (or however long you can comfortably manage) is a good start. If you can, it’s even better to start a higher intensity program – such as using an exercise bike or elliptical machine to achieve a harder aerobic workout. It’s also easier on the joints than jogging or running.

You may want to consider joining a gym, where you can receive detailed help, advice and support in person from a qualified professional.

Tip 2 – Clean Your Diet.

Obesity is often caused by a poor diet and emotional eating. You will need to cut down on the unhealthy snacks, and replace them with healthier alternatives. Also try to eliminate processed foods, as these are often high in calories, and contain preservatives which won’t help you lose weight.

To prevent hunger, eat smaller meals every 3 hours. This keeps your metabolism running fast, without falling into the habit of snacking. Throw out all your unhealthy snacks, and replace them with fruit.

Tip 3 – Track Your Progress.

This is a crucial step to keeping yourself motivated, and helping you find the will power to conquer bad habits. Don’t rely on the scales alone to track progress. Take measurements around your stomach, arms, waist, legs and anywhere else you want to lose weight. You may notice your progress here much quicker than the scales, and it will give you the motivation you need to continue with your lifestyle change.

Childhood obesity is one of the hardest challenges faced by parents, and new parents are looking for steps to prevent childhood obesity from being a problem in their kid’s lives. This becomes a challenge because not all parents are very effective in showing their kids how to eat a proper diet. Whether people admit it or not, they sometimes become doting parents who want to shower their child with love and affection; and this affection usually comes in the form of the foods they eat.

However, parents should also understand that not teaching their kids about good nutrition and fitness will only add to their future misery. Obese children are often bullied and made fun of to the point that it is hard for obese children to enjoy their childhood. In addition, they will often grow up with very low self-esteem which hinders their capacities and prevents them from becoming all they can. Because of this, parents should really know the steps to prevent childhood obesity if they want to give their children a healthy social life.

To understand the steps to prevent childhood obesity, it is important to understand why obesity happens in the first place. This will make it easier to understand the drastic steps needed to reduce the weight of the children.

The most common case of childhood obesity is lack of exercise. With the growing technology today, we can now see children absentmindedly sitting in front of computers and playing video games for hours on end. Instead of running around the neighborhood exercising their muscles and enhancing their metabolism, they sit idly for hours burning very few calories. Without exercise, chances are that children will develop obesity at an early age. So as a parent, you should encourage different kinds of physical activities for your kids so their bodies will burn the food they eat.

In addition to the lack of exercise, seeds of obesity are planted when children are exposed to large amounts of food rich in sugar. Children in general are sweet-toothed, and they are likely to eat sweet foods such as ice cream, cakes, doughnuts, and chocolate in very large amounts. To help prevent your child from suffering from obesity, you should encourage a healthy diet. Limit the amount of sweets you have in your home. Instead, fill a bowl with fresh fruits and vegetables and encourage your kids to eat them. Avoid putting desserts after every meal, and teach them to drink lots of water to neutralize their taste buds.

We can put an end to the growing epidemic of childhood obesity. It is time to take control and teach the kids of today healthy habits for a healthy lifestyle!

Obesity is a disease in which fat has accumulated to the extent that health is impaired. Note that there are three key components to this definition:

1. “Obesity is a disease…” It is only recently that major health authorities such as the World Health Organization and the US Federal Department of Health have acknowledged obesity as a disease. This change is most important as the disease of obesity can now begin to claim attention and an allocation of resources as do all other diseases.

2. “…in which fat has accumulated…” Fat is the key element of obesity. Primarily we are interested in how much fat there is in the body. We are not focused on weight per se. However, as we do not have a simple office method for directly measuring the fat content of the body, we have to use surrogate measures. We could use weight alone, but this would be terribly misleading. The tall person is always likely to be heavier than the shorter person. Therefore, as a minimum, we have to take into account the height as well. Currently, our best way to do this is by using the body mass index of the BMI. We will discuss how we calculate the BMI and look at its strengths and weaknesses below.

3. “…to the extent that health is impaired.” We are dealing with a disease that causes disease. The disease of obesity may be expressed in various ways. It may be as type 2 diabetes or as any of the dozens of known diseases that are caused by or made worse by obesity. It may be expressed as a physical or psychological limitation on the quality of your life. For example, you can no longer do the things that are normally expected. You may have severe lowering of self-esteem or self-confidence, leading to isolation, depression or unemployment. Or it may be expressed as a risk to your future health. You may feel fine currently, but you are aware that you are at high risk of disease in the future and that your life expectancy is being reduced by your obesity.

We will look at the disease of obesity in a more detail below but, firstly, let’s be clear about how we measure this disease.

The Body Mass Index

The BMI is our best single measure of obesity.

The BMI is a measure that combines the weight and the height according to the following formula: BMI = weight (in pounds) divided by height (in inches) X 705 or

BMI = weight (in kilograms) divided by height (in meters)

If you want to fight childhood obesity it is best to not wait until your child is already obese and stuck in the habits that lead to obesity, but to start today instilling good habits that will keep your child at a normal, healthy weight, and keep their body healthy as well.

If you want to fight childhood obesity, fight the following:

Sugary sweet children: It is simply a matter of diet. In most instances children who are obese get that way because of the way they eat. Their parents have poor eating habits that are passed down, and those compounded with popular children’s snacks, such as sugared cereals, candy, and other sweets, lead to a habit of poor eating where a large majority of what a kid eats during the day is filled with sugars and nutrition-less stuff that has been processed, refined, artificially colored, etc. These sugary sweet treats are fine on occasion, but if your child is eating more than one treat a day, they are in a cycle that could lead to obesity. So, monitor how many sweets they eat, and limit their intake of packaged, processed, and refined foods.

Computer, television, video games: If you want to fight childhood obesity, in addition to limiting the amount of junk food they get, you also have to limit their time spent sitting in front of the television, the computer, or playing video games. While there are some notable exceptions, most of these activities mean sitting still and vegging out. There are numerous studies that have linked these activities to weight gain. If you want to avoid obesity in your child, limit them to one to two hours of these activities a day, and have them spend the rest of their time doing something more active. This could be taking your family pet for walks, jumping on a trampoline, riding a bike, swimming, hitting a ball around, etc. Get them outside as the great outdoors invites more physical activity than sitting around inside does.

Bad habits: Childhood obesity is never solely caused by poor genetics, or misfortune, it is a combination of several factors, but usually can be attributed to accumulated bad habits. When children are small, those bad habits are the fault of the parents, as the kids age they get into the routine of not exercising or being active, and eating improperly. Over eating, eating foods with low nutritional content and high calories, not providing your body with the nutrients it needs, and living a sedentary lifestyle, rather than one where you are up and moving. These bad habits build on one another, and soon instead of playing outside and running around like a kid should do, your kid is going to be obese and it will hurt or be uncomfortable to be active, and a soda and a television show are going to be a more appealing option, continuing the cycle.

Get your kids out of the obesity cycle and on their way to good health by consulting your pediatrician, and by choosing to live an active, healthy life.

Obesity has now turned into an endemic disease in many developed nations and is on its way of entering the gates of the developing countries as well. Obesity is more the result of not just too much eating but rather consuming of unhealthy fatty food items in reckless amounts. In this present world where access fat rich packed food items is quite easy the incidence of obesity related diseases would also be quite common. The following are some of the obesity related diseases that frequently occur among individuals suffering from overweightedness.

Some Obesity Related Diseases

Type 2 diabetes is often caused due to the incidence of obesity. Diabetes occurs when the insulin producing capacity of the body diminishes or the cells become incapable of responding to the insulin produced resulting presence of unused insulin in huge quantities. It has been studied that 80% of the patients of type 2 diabetes are over weight. Obesity actually results increased inability of the insulin to control blood pressure.

Heart diseases are also common obesity related ailments. Obese people are often the victims of the heart attacks; congestive heart failure, angina, sudden cardiac arrest and experiencing of abnormal heart rhythm. Obesity is responsible for exerting a negative effect on the blood lipid levels resulting increase in levels of the triglyceride and consequent decrease in the lipoprotein of high density. Lipoprotein is also known as HDL or good cholesterol. In fact, presence of fat leads to the development of LDL or bad cholesterol causing chronic heart diseases.

Hypertension is another disease which occurs due to obesity. The blood pressure is actually the pressure with which the blood exerts on the walls of the arteries. High blood pressure increases the risk of development of chronic heart and kidney ailments. Increase of weight often results the increase kin high blood pressure.

The incidence of obesity further worsens the conditions of the endocrine and metabolic disorders. It has been noticed that about one in every five obese individual is affected by metabolic disorder, which is also known as metabolic syndrome or Syndrome X26.

Obesity is also the primal causes of fertility related ailments. Due chronic obesity many woman develop the syndrome called PCOS or the polycystic ovary syndrome. The disease is characterized by ovaries having under developed follicles causing infertility. The irregular menstrual cycles, multiple ovarian cysts along with excessive hair growth are some of the symptoms of the disease.

Apart from the above mentioned diseases there are many other ailments that can be associated with obesity. On can stay away from these diseases, if he or she can get rid of obesity.
