Here Are Common Health Consequences Of Obesity And How You Can Combat Them

India has the 2nd largest population after China, contributing to 17.74% of the total population of the world. With so many people, various health problems arise in society, one of these is obesity. With fast food chains multiplying at a rapid speed, unhealthy food has become easily available to the masses. Globalization and the fast-paced lifestyle have a significant role to play in increasing obesity in the country.

States such as Jharkhand are still struggling with issues of malnutrition and holding mass rallies for the right to food. On the other hand, metro cities are painting a completely different picture with child and adult obesity on a rapid rise. Obesity is a severe condition, and it is harder to beat in children than in adults. This condition isn’t commonly talked about, leading to people being in the dark regarding the grave consequences of obesity.

Common Health Consequences Due to Obesity

  • Cardiovascular – hypertension, coronary artery disease, pulmonary embolism
  • Respiratory – dyspnea, asthma, sleep apnea
  • Neurological – stroke, dementia, meralgia paresthetica
  • Cancer – esophagus, kidney, pancreas, prostrate
  • Gastrointestinal – cholelithiasis, hernias, pancreatitis
  • Psychological – body image issues, social stigma, depression
  • Women Issues – PCOD, infertility, early puberty

The above issues are alarming! We understand how junk food and carbonated drinks can be extremely addictive. It gives you a kick or a sense of euphoria when you consume them, and you want to experience this feeling over and over. In such condition how can one ensure to combat obesity?

Seek Help

  • Mental Help

    Obesity could be a deeper-rooted problem than you think it as. You could have a bigger appetite because you might have anxiety or depression, and vice versa. In instances like these, you feel a strong urge to eat junk or just food in general to get a kick. If you are feeling like this, seek professional help from a therapist or a psychologist. It is possible to beat mental health issues if you seek help at the right time.

  • Dietician

    If you are unable to lose weight and control your diet despite many efforts, don’t feel disheartened. It is difficult to kick the habit suddenly; it is better if you do it in moderation. You can consult a dietician and get help. A dietician will help you get the right kind of nutrients from your food in proper amount.

Healthy Living

You can’t achieve your desired weight in one go; hence, short term dietary changes won’t help you reach your goal. You have to make long term dietary and lifestyle changes to achieve your targets. Here’s how you can do it:

  • Weigh yourself

    Make it a point to weigh yourself regularly to check your progress, make sure to chart the data on your wall. This way, you see the progress of your goal and get even more motivated.

  • Include exercise

    No one is asking you to join the gym! You could do simple exercises at home and burn tons of calories. You can start easy and with progress; you will realize the limits of your own body and make moderations to your exercises.

  • Read your food

    We mostly ignore this, but the table behind our packaged foods for nutrition is for a reason. Look for foods that have the least number of calories, artificial sugar, coloring, fat, and carbohydrates. Make it a conscious effort to remove the use of whole foods from your diets.

  • Eat Your Greens

    The right kind of diet includes fresh vegetables and fruits. While shopping for them, make sure that you skip the prepackaged and the frozen aisle. Buy fruits that are fresh, preferably from your local fruit vendor or from the farmer’s market.

The problems of obesity are no longer limited to the urban rich; it is slowly but steadily creeping into other sections of the society as well. It has become crucial to exercise precautions as it leads to life-altering health issues. Therefore, we at Bharti AXA GI have Health Insurance Plans to have your back. We value our customers and offer a hassle-free and quick service with our 24*7 claim support network. You can live a happy and healthy life stress-free with our health insurance policy !
