Oversized America

Oversizing America has become common place, as well as, a bitter sweet concern for everyone. On average, 64 percent of people are overweight in the United States alone, and, 27 percent of Americans are classified as obese.

Losing weight can vary, and whether people are looking to lose weight within the next week or two, or whether they 100 plus pounds to lose (long term) weight loss needs to be addressed. Being overweight can lead to high blood pressure concerns, type 2 diabetes, asthma and other health problems. People look to lose stomach fat, that fat back look, get rid of double chins and even “man boobs” We all look for a cause leading to being overweight. Although there may be some reason, there is always a rhyme. We notice that the cloths start not fitting as well. There is a loss of energy. And even the dreaded “couch potato” syndrome. These can circle and spiral into the beginning of medical conditions that are previously discussed or even worse.

Being overweight is never something we look forward to in our later years, or even in our early years. The foods you eat, the type of exercise you perform can all help in the day to day battle of the bulge. Take for instance this idea: Try not to skip breakfast. As a rule of thumb, breakfast is the best meal of the day. Take time out of your morning to enjoy a nutritious breakfast to start the day. Remembering what your daily routine is can be very helpful in wheat you eat. While constantly moving through out the day, eat a hearty meal to start the day and snack through the rest of the day.

The other ideas we want to remember in weight loss is that when you become less active, eat for a less active lifestyle. Those heavy meals that are consumed in the evening and then very little activity, that does not “burn” off that heavy meal. Big snacks before bed time are a real no-no. The body is a machine that is designed to rest while you sleep, not utilize the food that was consumed just prior to bed.

All this becomes tied together and results in an overweight disaster. The pounds seem to come on, and they become a lot harder to get off. The metabolism slows, and the body does not regenerate as quickly as it once did. This is the beginning of the end for those of us that become oversized Americans.
