Obesity affecting more of you

Postby Canuck Singh » Sat Sep 27, 2008 10:41 pm

A recent study published by scientists at Boston University has revealed that obesity is a problem that is much bigger than previously suspected. The study headed by Dr. Ramachandran Vasan reported that a staggering nine out of men in the United States will become overweight in their lifetime. Women faired a little better; seven out of 10 American women will have weight problems.

This research is part of a rather famous study called the Farmingham research, which began collecting data on Americans way back in the late 1940’s. Back then, only around 30% of men and women were overweight at some stage during their lifetime. Today, that figure is closer to 90%. If nine out of 10 Americans will be overweight at some stage of their lives, which one of the 10 are you?

Hi Canuck,
Agree with you and like to say obesity has been declared as an epidemic in some countries and to reduce the risk of obesity, we must workout daily and have nutritive diet plan. Avoid skipping meals, break meals in small frequent meals and prefer raw food over processed food.

1) Pre-cook your food, even bring lunch to work. In order to minimize cooking time, cook large batches of food at the beginning of the week or several days in advance!

2) Keep a paleo-friendly meal replacement bar or shake in your desk or purse in case of a change of plans. Being un-prepared will lead to poor decision making.

3) Try a new vegetable - the more color, and the deeper the color, the more nutritious it is! For example, kale is one of my favorite superfoods and it's very versatile - you can use it in recipes for smoothies, salads, and even cooking as a warm dinner side.

4) Don't keep any food you don't "want" to eat in the house... at all. Out of sight, out of mind. And no, your kids don't need those chips and cookies either.

5) Learn how to use new spices. This will offer much more variety and flavors in your meals.
