Health Issues of Obesity
Taking an objective look at your weight gets harder every day in America, and its something people are getting less willing to do as well. People convince themselves that their weight is average because everyone around them looks the same, or that their weight isn’t a health problem because of the constantly falling standards for public health and appearance.
Talking straight, obesity is unattractive, unhealthy, and raises your risk of some seriously ailing health problems that could change your life forever, or end it for that matter. We’ve listed some of the more common health problems that the obese get diagnosed with every day. Each of them are completely preventable through weight loss.
Of people with type two diabetes, about 80% are overweight. Doctors aren’t 100% agreed upon why overweight people are more likely to have this disorder, but are agreed that lowering your weight reduces your chances of developing it. Even for the already diagnosed diabetic, engaging in a healthy lifestyle now could mean completely eliminating your treatment necessities tomorrow.
Some Serious Problems
The struggle is real, take action now to reduce fat acceptance and take back your nation’s health. There are of course other health problems that come along with obesity, but that gives you an idea.
Strokes, heart attacks, and agina are all heart diseases umbrellaed into the heart disease term. Nearly all overweight diagnoses leads to some form of serious heart disease at the end of the day. Both high blood pressure and diabetes lead to some form of heart disease, whether your stroking out or suffering from abnormal heart beat.
This is the leading cause of death in America, and its a direct result of our country’s weight problem. Reducing your weight is a direct method to ridding your life of the threat of heart disease. In some cases reducing body weight by 5% can have a big impact. Lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure, weight loss is directly correlated with improving heart health.
High blood pressure will place additional stress on the heart with every pump, not to mention the wear on the kidneys. When someone has high blood pressure their body is doing exactly as described: the blood is pushing harder than it should be on the walls of arteries and veins. Every pump the heart performs is sending blood to every artery in the body.
Obesity doesn’t necessitate a diagnoses of high blood pressure, but it certainly ramps up your likelihood of having or developing blood pressure issues. The kidneys feel the stress of additional fat cells in the body, and in turn produce more blood to carry oxygen to those cells. Without weight loss a patient will need constant medicating, however even just a little weight reduction can reduce the amount of treatment required.
Diabetes, the Silent Killer
Type 2 diabetes is a blood sugar disorder in which blood sugar levels are abnormally high, causing major stress to the body’s organs. Back in ’09 type 2 diabetes was a major cause of death in USA, and yes heredity may affect your chances for diabetes, but reducing your weight has a stronger chance of preventing it.
My Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery in Portland OR
My Rhinoplasty Surgery experience began with the hunt to find a decent doctor to perform the operation. Well, this was after I was committed and determined to have it done, which took a good bit of psychological wrestling and would be another blog post in it of itself.
Its a funny thing when searching online for a surgeon, in a perfect world the most talented and well qualified plastic surgery practitioners would be with easiest to find, but such is not the case. Marketing and self promotion play a huge role in a surgeons market visibility and probably some of the best local surgeons only get found through patient referrals, which is a real shame.
Finding a doctor, it turns out, can be a real pain. Luckily about halfway through my patience I stumbled upon an awesome website that referred me to the best local plastic surgeon clinic and surgeon for my specific procedure. I had already blown through five consultations (and $559 in consultation fees) before finding this service and just didn’t feel comfortable with any of the surgeons or their portfolios.
The Winning Plastic Surgery Consultation
When I met with the doctor the website had referred me to I knew almost instantly that he was the one to perform my surgery. He had an air of experience and confidence that immediately squashed my stress and anxiety surrounding the procedure. Honestly I think a lot of my stress came from hunting around for weeks looking for the right doctor!
The consultation was a relieving and educational experience. We started off with my goals for cosmetic surgery, then conversed into the procedure itself. We outlined how exactly the surgery would go in detail. I felt a bit squeamish about surgery before but for some reason learning how it would all go down helped me relax a little more. We talked about the risks involved in the surgery, which medicines would be used, the timing of the procedure, and even what instruments would come into play. All this in about thirty minutes!
If you can’t tell, I skipped the surgery part of the story which should be the climax. Therre was nothing to it! I don’t know why I was ever so nervous for but the day of surgery was a slice of pie in comparison to finding the surgeon. You just walk in, change into surgical robes, get your face prepped with some crazy tropical smelling ointments, then get wheeled into the operation room where the surgeon greets you and proceeds to knock you out with a wondrous chemical cocktail.
My recovery was smooth and almost enjoyable compared to my cramped work schedule. I did well informing just about everyone that I was going into surgery, so no one really bothered me except to bring my ice cream and soup. During the first few hours after waking up I was in moderate pain, but it was taken care of with some painkillers promptly enough. Later that day I got to watch the two hour procedure in wonderful HD, which was surreal. I recommend anyone thinking about cosmetic surgery find an experienced doctor and not hop on board with the first one they meet.
Healthy Habits To Give Your Wellness a Headstart
The amount of fad diets, media campaigns, and products surrounding health and wellness make staying focused on general wellness an every day hassle. Its easy to lose track of the absolute essentials of health – the internet, the TV, and even billboards on the street keep you focused on products to fix problems not everyone has. Shun the fad diets and health products and focus on a healthy lifestyle that feels best for you and your body.
Snack to Victory
One great routine to get into for improved health is snacking. Many people often feel guilty eating a snack between meals, but the opposite should be true according to nearly every study featuring snacks. Despite the false pretenses, snacks can help you shed off the pounds or manage a healthy weight. Most people might think of snacks as unhealthy because of what they usually pick to snack on. Breaking up your meals and choosing healthy grains or servings of fruits and vegetables is 100% proven to boost your metabolism and even keep you focused.
The easiest and most basic health habit that’s dropped these days? Drinking enough water! With so many other drinks out there today the message of how much water is proper gets, well, watered down. Its easy to forget that we’re mostly water, and its the absolute basic building block to getting anything done in our bodies. Drink more water the more active you are, most adults should intake around 2 liters per day, although nearly none of them do. Staying properly hydrated means more energy, a faster metabolism, and a happier, more energetic mood. It keeps everything just right.
The most obvious and rewarding points for cardio are an improved heart and lung health. Much like every other muscle they require stress and elevated performances to stay healthy. There’s absolutely no product or diet that will improve your metabolism more drastically than a few simple cardio exercises each day. Getting a regular run or even walk in often is the hardest healthy habit to fall into. Its rare to find people who get their every day cardio, but I don’t think you could find one person who knows they should be developing the habit. If you find yourself sore after a hard day of working out, a routine cardio exercise can improve the time it takes to recover.
By getting into the healthy habits we’ve listed you’ll get a strong introduction to what lifestyle changes can do for your mood, energy levels, and focus. Everyone’s body is different and may require specific exercises and diets, but the three healthy habits we’ve listed are apart of nearly everyone’s health agenda no matter your shape.
