Meaning Of Obesity And Why
The meaning of obesity is being fat and
overweight. Truth is nobody likes to be that way. Especially women.
Because being obese not only affects what people – in particular
your family and friends – feel and say about you but also how you
look at things. More importantly, it affects your confidence and
The primary reason for obesity is from the foods we eat. Especially
oily and fried food that we seen at fast food outlets, cafes and
restaurants. Unfortunately those are what the media constantly
bombarded us in papers, TV and internet as part of their marketing
strategies to get more customers and make more money.
I am not in a position to name those places serving such foods. But
what I can and will say is that they do not really care if you get fat
and suffer from all kinds of weight-related problems. All they care
about is your money which they need to fund and keep their
businesses growing and expanding.
Know this. The health of most people – especially in developed
countries – have deterioriated to such extent that it became a

privileges. As a result, they live a very simple life of doing manual
labour and running about every single day of their lives. Whether or
not they are exercising, they are constantly on the move which
gradually resulted in them being fitter, slimmer and more alert.
But the root cause is the way we eat. Especially men who simply
grabbed a quick bite and ended up consuming what most doctors
and healthy experts feel they should not on regular basis.
Most foods – whether from eating places and stores – are processed
and refined. They are filled with chemicals as preservation for
longer shelf life.
Since we live in a fast-paced society, we have a tendency to give
excuses that we do not have time or are too tired to cook after a
hard day’s work. And this goes on not just today or tomorrow but
