TRIMMING DOWN THE EXTRA FAT April 10, 2009 crizlai If you have read the latest report on obesity right within US itself, you would get a scare out of your life. Can you imagine that 58 millions of Americans are overweight with 40 million of them being obese and 3 millions are morbidly obese? Since 1990, there has been a 76% increase of Type II diabetes cases, mostly in adults within the range of 30-40 years old. To avoid those obese related diseases such as Type II diabetes, cardio vascular diseases, breast cancer, colon cancer, gall bladder or even high blood pressure, one should take note of the body weight not only on yourself but also on your children’s as new study had found that one in four overweight children has shown early signs of diabetes impaired glucose intolerance which is related to Type II diabetes. Most of them stood a high risk of getting heart related diseases. Within the last two decades, the numbers of overweight and obese children worldwide had increased four fold and it would climb dramatically by 2010. If you are a pair of loving parents with high hope for your children’s future clean health, do give them balance diets during each meal. Through my years of observing families with obese children, it’s almost always the case of leadership by example. If you are not concern about your own weight issues, you would not even heed the future health of your children. Some families even thought that having fat, chubby, overweight children would show their status of prosperity. What a wrong perception. Those children stood a high risk of being stunned by critical diseases in the later stage of their lives! There are many diet programs out there to help you to maintain a healthier lifestyle. Some may even use diet pill for a swifter effect. It all lies on your effort and determination to step forward now for a healthier living. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
