OBESITY

OBESITY

Obesity is defined as having an excessive amount of body fat that increases your risk of diseases and health problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/obesity/DS00314). Our bodies need calories in order to live but obesity occurs when you take in more calories than you burn through exercise and daily activities. These excess calories will be stored as excess body fat. There are many factors that lead to obesity which are lack of sleep, medications, unhealthy eating habits, and sedentary lifestyles. Let us look at each factor. Sleeping less that seven hours can change hormones that increase your appetite, and increase the crave for foods with high calories and carbohydrates (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/obesity/DS00314). This one is harder to adjust because medication for some people is a necessity. The only issue with the medication is its possible weight gain associated with the side effects. Medications such diabetes, antidepressants, and anti-seizure medications can lead to weight gain if the diet or activity levels do not change. A controllable item is unhealthy eating habits such as skipping breakfast, eating oversized portions, and heavy fast food meals. This can be controlled with item such as meal replacement shakes, carb-ease plus, and leptilean. These items are alternative products that provide a high quality grade of protein with vitamins and minerals, support healthy blood glucose while reducing the absorption and breakdown of carbohydrates and fats, and also providing a feeling of fullness and satiety while boosting metabolism. Each of the products listed can be found in our store link. The last cause of obesity is sedentary lifestyle.

Lets face it, life is tough, we have to get up, get ready, get the kids ready, cook, clean, go to work, spend time with friends and family just list a few. So after all these activities we are tired and decide to rest, then relax in front of the tv or relax somewhere where little activity is needed and then we enjoy food. That is where we come in to give you that needed motivation to move, to change, and to be better than the person you have become. We develop a mutual agreement that will progress you to your goal in a safe and effective manner to move you out of that sedentary lifestyle. Life was not designed to be sedentary, so get moving!
