Atlanta Obesity Treatment
Obesity is a medical condition which is caused due to excess body fat and it has an adverse effect on the human health. Obesity increases the chances of getting various diseases like diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, and certain types of cancer.
Food is very important part of human life. There is a saying, "Eat to live and not live to eat". People who believe in "Live to eat" become victims of obesity or weight gain. Obesity has almost doubled in the last couple of years. Almost 56 million children are obese at the turn of 2012. Obesity or weight gain refers to the excessive/abnormal fat accumulated in the body which can affect the day-to-day lifestyle and dramatically affect one's health in the long run. The main reason why the excessive fat gets accumulated is because of the intake of food with high energy content like oil, cheese, butter, and high carbohydrates.
You should limit intake of processed and refined fats and sugars, increase consumption of fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and nuts, and engage in regular physical activity to achieve energy balance and a healthy weight."
Obesity needs to be taken care at the initial stages, because it becomes difficult at later stages. Obesity or overweight is a sign or risk factor for many other diseases. A person can be overweight from extra muscle, bone, water or having too much fat.
