Obesity and Associated Problems

Obesity has become a very large problem in the United States, and around the rest of the world. More and more adults are being classified as obese. Over two thirds of the United States population is considered obese but the most shocking part is a large amount of kids are being considered the same. Obesity effects the health and well being of a person so dramatically yet obese people either do not feel the need, or do not have the will power to do something about it.

Obesity also puts a big strain on a nations health system. Obesity causes many physical ailments. As a result obese people are flooding hospitals and doctors offices costing the health system millions and tying up health care professionals.

Health problems related to obesity include but are not limited to high blood pressure, heart disease, general heart problems, intestinal problems and many many more. But problems associated with obesity are not limited to physical problems. Mental problems are also caused by obesity. Self esteem is effected as well as confidence. It is not often you see an obese person that is happy. They are largely not happy with their lives. Sometimes this is due to their physical size, but other times it is caused by hormonal imbalances caused by obesity.

Overcoming obesity really is a struggle for many. Especially those that are morbidly obese. But in the end losing weight is something everyone can achieve. Moderate exercise and a nutritious diet will do wonders for those that actually want to do something about their obesity.
