How Do You Deal with Obesity?

by : Jerry Leung

It is a nightmare for some people who want to deal with the problem of overweight and obese. In fact, a lot of people are overweight mainly because of their lifestyles. People may have prejudices on a person who is fat or overweight. They may find that a fat man is funny if they feel happy on one day. However, the case will be worse if the overweight person is a woman.

As a matter of fact, how do we see yourselves will greatly affect by how others see us. For most of use, it is very difficult not care about what others say. Due to this fact, a lot of people who are overweight would prefer staying at home rather than going out. They will avoid moving too much. And they will not do any exercises. This in fact will make more fat to be accumulated. As a result the problem of overweight will become even more severe.

It is also relatively more difficult for overweight people to have relationships. As a matter of fact, people who are overweight are generally reluctant to be naked. And this will certainly ruin their relationships in sex. As mentioned, overweight people will not choose to go out and this will make it even more difficult for them to find partners.

In order to deal with obesity effectively, one has to motivate oneself. He / she will need the determination to fight with fat. Of course the support from the others is also very important. As mentioned, what we see ourselves will be greatly dependent on how the others see us. If the other people try to support an overweight person, he / she will probably have more incentive to deal with the problem. Besides, we have to understand that addition to food is somehow like drug addition. We may feel depressed if we eat less than we used to. As a result, even more extra support may be need when an overweight person is on diet.

It is very easy for a person to get fat. However, losing weight is a different story. In most cases it is hard to lose weight. A strong emotional support will be needed in order to succeed in weight loss. After the diet, the overweight person will still have to eat less for his / her whole life. Of course exercising is also a must in order not to gain too much weight again.
