Obesity and the prevalence of excessive weight gain are almost constantly in the news. We hear, just as often, about ways to combat these issues. More exercise, less fat, more protein, strength training and fewer carbs are touted as being remedies for excess weight. Another answer still is HCG treatment in Marysville.
There is a distinct difference in simply being overweight and being obese but both are recognized by disproportionate amounts of accumulated fat that negatively affect overall health. BMI or body mass index (a weight compared to height ratio) is utilized to determine whether you are actually just heavy or are obese. A BMI of 25 to 29 is considered overweight and a BMI of 30 or greater is obese.
The Worldwide Health Organization (WHO) estimates that, as of 2014, there were in excess of 1.9 billion adults who were classified as being overweight and more than 600 million were obese. These statistics are frightening. More deaths occur across the globe due to being overweight or obese than being underfed.
The ultimate causes of weighing too much are: eating too many foods that are high in fat and a decrease in the amount of physical activity. The consequences can be dire: increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, osteoarthritis and some cancers.
