Will obesity ever end?
i don't mean will everone become skinny, I hope not but will people start to at least try to be somewhat healthy as far as weight is concerned? skinny is no better then fat in my eyes but there is a limit to what is healthy and what isn't.
Nope. People don't exercise and eat processed food instead of making food from scratch.
Then there are the "calorie freaks" or the "protein drink freaks". They're basically anaemic bodies with muscle attached.
I would like to see everyone healthy & comfortable ,however that isn't my decission .It will take a person's own choice to eat healthy & exercise or not . No the GOVERNMENTS decission either.. Adults would have to be the role models for youth , as in eating heathy , fixing healthy meals , being active and turning the TV/ Video Games off a few hours a day .
This was good question nightwork4
Actually, many low income people are overweight because they can't afford to buy nutritional food. When you can't eat right due to economic factors, you are going to be overweight. People in this category, I believe, must bypass vegetables and high protein foods in order to get enough to eat. Unfortunately, the food that fills them up comes from calories and carbs.
If it were easy, believe me no one would choose obesity. Try to imagine looking out at the world and seeing lovely slender people and know that in order for you to be like that, you will be hungry all the time.
It is not as simple as slender people think. Believe me, I have been both slender and obese.
It is unfair to characterize all obese people as TV, fast food junkies.
I think not. Because I have heard many comments that with this global crisis the rate of obesity has increased. People have less purchasing power and therefore they are eating less well.
No, it's probably not going to end. The problem is that people like to eat. Food companies could help us out a little bit, but some people just have a big sweet tooth.
No I don't think so.
Not everyone who is obese is unhappy with their weight. Take note of all of the BBW and "chubby chaser" dating websites.
Today we have numerous options from 24 hour gyms, diet meals, diet pills, detox plans, health awareness education outlets, as well as gastric by-pass surgeries as options.
And yet obesity in America is at an all time high!
The only way to get rid of obesity is to take away our choices! (No one wants that!)
Living in a free society each of us has the right to eat at as many buffets, devour as much fast food, cakes/pies, ice cream, candy, snacks, soda, and alcohol as we want!
Everyone CHOOSES what they eat.
We either make working out a priority or we don't. It's all choice.
Having said that it wouldn't hurt if a salad with water were as cheap as buying a junk food combo.
Today a nice size "organic tomato" can run you $2.99, For the same price you could get 2 McDoubles, 1 small fry, and 1 small soda (with free refills). Someone on a tight buget is going to go with the $1 menu more often than not. The variety alone is worth it in their eyes.
Why should a salad cost more than a beef sandwich in fast food restaurants? When we go to a grocery store a head of lettuce is a lot less than a pound of ground beef, pork, or chicken.
I'm fairly certain these large chains are getting a much better discount on veggies than we ever will.
Having said that I still believe most people would opt to go with what "tastes best" to them instead of what may be most healthy.
Yes, it will end.
When I was young, I tried my best to gain weight. But after a few years of trying so hard, I gave up.
A few years back, I discovered how we can gain weight as well as losing weight and the solution for me is so simple.
It is a matter of calculating the amount of calories intake. I take note of each calories of meat, fish, rice, etc that I am taking and by cutting down the total calories, I am able to reduce weight. I normally will eat around 2500 calories of food, so I cut it down to 2250 and for 1 month, I lost about 5 kgs.
I don't think it will ever end in America. It's just too pervasive and access is so easy to junk food. Eating healthy in this country is expensive and difficult to maintain. But in other countries, obesity may never exist as they just don't have enough.
Yes. As soon as our freedom of choice is abolished. Until then it never will. Instant satisfaction is what people want.
Probably not!! food is so so good! and as we age the fattiness stays longer. Also for many women birth control is a necessity and weight gain is almost certain.
Not unless people understand the manner in which they eat , what they eat, and why they eat; along with understanding how the food reacts to their bodies. That may never end in our lifetime.
I doubt that it will ever end. In fact it will probably get worse before it gets better. Food is a matter of choice that usually begins at an early age. Ex: If you guys are good in the store I'll get you a happy meal on the way home. I mean think about the name alone "Happy Meal" so when you eat this it makes you happy. We take away physical education in school, feed them hot dogs,pizza, and sugar for lunch and wonder why they're overweight or they become an overweight adult
Food is given for rewards, sorrow, joyful occasions, etc. You don't see a wedding with a wedding "salad" or a birthday salad Then after a funeral what does everybody bring FOOD It's a multi trillion dollar industry. Shoot McDonald's now buys there meat from Europe because it's cheaper and hardly any FDA regulations like in the US Do you really think they're going to start serving organic fruit and vegetables? A friend of mine and her daughters/twins just had gastric bypass surgery they eat 2-4 oz of food 4 or 5 times a day with no beverage allowed during 1/2hr before or after. The doctor told them that's really all we as humans need everything else is psychological and promotional and they've never looked better Imagine what would happen if we all ate like that.
i hope it will on the other hand it will be my death cause
I don't think so it will end because consumption of fast food products increases day by day.
As the technology progresses, it seems impossible.
Obesity occurs because of the cheap and large access to foods that have flavor profiles that we have evolved to sought out in nature, but were very hard to find. There is also speculation that synthetic nutrients (high fructose corn syrup usage as a replacement for sugar being the most well known) are causing our bodies to react negatively to the caloric intake. One way or another when we as a civilization will either advance to such a level that obesity does not pose a medical threat anymore and thus obesity will likely never entirely go away or we will develop a way to meet the caloric demands of the body with out over saturating it with unnecessary levels of nutrients that lead to obesity.
Not until it is treated as the medical issue it is and not some sort of moral failing. The plain fact is, that some people get hungry faster and stay hungry longer. The cause is somewhere deep in the brain, not the psyche. Until the medical establishment stops being in the pocket of the multi-billion dollar diet industry, no successful treatment will be developed.
