TO EAT OR NOT TO EAT? July 24, 2009 crizlai You were standing in a barbeque line to get to your food. You spotted something good and the aroma coming from the stove kept your tummy yearning for more of those hot and spicy, not forgetting oily seafood platters. Those fish could well be safe for your diet as they are low in fat and high in protein but the method of preparation was a bit risky. There were spices and coconut milk in them. Grilling might sounds good but the amount of carbon accumulated might tarnish your health. You paused. You contemplated whether to follow the queue or to quit. Awww… those clams, mussels, scallops, shrimps and squids were too good to resist! There goes your diet plan. You lost your battle against your temptation to savor those fat-rich food again. Isn’t this what happened to us when we were trying to scale down our weight? Well, there’s the good and evil in that. The good part would be that you have the best weight loss supplements to burn out all the fat that you had gained. The evil part would be that you just do not heed your health at all and fall into the obese category. Under a prediction by the World Health Organization, there would be about 2.3 billion overweight adults in the world by 2015 and more than 700 million of them will be obese. That’s an alarming figure, thus something has to be done to create the awareness on obesity before more people are down with obese related complications. Obese related illness can be quite fatal. They include high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes type 2, congestive heart failure, heart diseases, stroke, gallstones and gallbladder disorders, gout, osteoarthritis, cancer, pregnancy complications, female reproductive health and so on. On top of that, there would also be the psychological disorders which would trigger depression, eating disorder and low self esteem due to unbalanced figures. Won’t it be better if we were to stay fit and healthy instead? I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
