Childhood Obesity

Everyone is hearing that obesity is approaching epidemic proportions in the United States alone. However, nearly every industrialized nation is encountering this problem. The good news is that it is largely reversible with lifestyle changes. Of course the longer one suffers from obesity it may appear nearly impossible to reverse; however, this has not been show to be an accurate statement. There is much you have in your own power to reverse obesity and approach your optimum weight.

Obesity and being overweight is more than the political issue of looking good as opposed to looking fat. Obesity and overweight contributes to premature death by heart attack, stroke and degenerative diseases such as diabetes and arteriosclerosis. What few people understand, and only a small population of those in the medical profession also, is that fat is a metabolically active tissue! What does that mean? Fat is more than a storage device for excess calories. Fat cells make hormones that impact other hormones, fueling inflammation, controlling our metabolic function, digestion, hunger signals, brain function, pre-mature aging, skin elasticity and even bone health! Therefore, striking a balance between having our fat cells take over and throw other bodily systems out of balance is crucial to understand! Fat and being over fat is more than aesthetics!

We also know of friends and family that groan and moan about how hard it is to diet or loose weight. We have also seen that one “diet”, pill, program etc. does not work for everyone. Why is that? It’s because we are talking about hormones, toxicity and metabolism, and the three are a dynamic force that strike different balances in different individuals. Some individuals have a certain hormonal system in place to allow them to function optimally on a high fruit and vegetable diet and others become weak and fatigued without more animal protein. Some can loose not weight or maintain weight loss at all because of excessive toxicity stored in fat cells. Our articles will go into depth the broad spectrum of body types, metabolic and hormonal issues to help you decipher what your personal issues are with respect to maintaining your optimal weight.

Is it inevitable that we must surrender to weight gain with aging? No! Our articles will empower and uplift you to know that you can look, feel and function better as you age than you did when you were younger! Stay tuned and know that you have more power and control over your weight than you ever thought possible.
