However, there are two things that are essential for this: your effort and perseverance, and the support of a good professional.
In fact, the number of people affected has increased considerably in recent years, as in most industrialized societies like ours. Thus, at present it can be affirmed that more than 50% of the Spanish population weighs more than would be appropriate for it.
Of course you have to take a step from obese to not being obese, and that is not easy, just as it costs to overcome other diseases, but it is not impossible. Unlike other diseases, will, constancy, and non-discouragement can be factors that can help prevent the disease.
Today there are more obese than ever before and some experts have published the XXI. They consider obesity as one of the main pests of the twentieth century. And why? Dr. Marius Diaz, president of the Spanish Association for the Research of Obesity, says that two are the reasons that justify this situation:
However, without prejudice to these two factors, most experts recognize that at the origin of obesity, many factors must be taken into account, among which are:
In view of all these factors, you may be tempted to despair. But calm, if you eat properly, without excesses, giving your body just what you need, there is no reason to worry. However, the risks derived from overweight should always be very present. Obese people have a shorter life expectancy than non-obese people, for many years it has been known.
The first ones who realized this were responsible for the North American insurance companies and since then they began to charge more to their insured according to their overweight.
However, not all types of obesity present the same risk. When fat builds up in the lumbar area, around the hips, complications are lower and lighter than when fat builds up in half the body.
According to Dr. Javier Aranceta, director of several papers presented by the Spanish Association for the Research of Obesity, the ideal would be to not put health in danger. In other words, "the prevention of obesity is not always to eat less. It is, above all, a diet or a balanced diet, in which predominate foods of vegetable origin, avoiding fats or fats, sauces and very elaborate dishes. And exercise, how not."
Prevention should focus on specific times or times: during pregnancy, during childbirth, in childhood and in adolescence, from 40 years old and when you want to quit smoking.
Once it is checked that a person is obese and wants to start treatment, it can be many and very different programs specifically designed to reduce weight, but watch! !, mistrust the methods that ensure you lose several kilos in a short time. The ideal is to put it in the hands of a specialist (endocrinologist or nutritionist doctor) to make a measure of food to your measure. Treatments against obesity are usually based on:
Diet or measure of eating
It is not enough with a food table or the proposed menus already formulated. Before the doctor implants the diet, the specialist should evaluate its obesity, also controlling its metabolic alterations (if any) and nutritional history.
For the prevention and treatment of obesity it is convenient to perform physical exercise with moderation but continuously. Many housewives, for example, believe it is enough to do household chores, but it is shown that the calories burned in this way are minimal.
It is necessary as long as the patient does not have sufficient strength to follow marked treatment or there are psychological problems in depth that can hinder the process.
Drugs or drugs
In recent years, medicines have been created that, along with diet and exercise, prevent the absorption of fat to fight the disease.
In some cases it will be necessary to take more drastic measures, such as surgery, in severe cases (when the body mass index is higher than 40).
Children, increasingly obese
As in the case of adults, in the last 10 years there has been a worrying increase in childhood obesity. According to some studies, between 3 and 6% of the child and youth population is obese.
And children who do not have breakfast are, it seems, the most vulnerable to obese.
