Health and Wellness Tips

If you had super amazing health and wellness tips – how quickly would you begin to make changes?

Not many know this but obesity afflicts at least 28 percent of adult women and 19 percent of adult men in America. In fact, there is a huge majority of people out there who consider themselves more than “pleasantly plump.” Despite the many diet book and diet foods now available, obesity is on the rise – NOT on the decline.

WHY?

For starters there is that pesky little problem called appetite control. For what it’s worth, appetites seem to be influenced more by social, environmental, and emotional pressures than by internal physiological cues or signals.

What does this mean? Simply put, you are not eating when YOU are actually hungry.

Scientists have discovered that people seldom go without food for more than a few hours, or at most, a day at a time.

Are you with me so far?

And, who can blame you? Seriously, with the enormous variety of tempting foods available, especially those high in fat, sugar, and calories, but low in bulk, make it EASY to overeat. To make matters worse, seductive food advertising, television commercials, and the prevalence of high-calorie menus in cafeterias and restaurants also make it hard to whittle your middle.

But, get this: Sometimes your family can be your biggest problem. They encourage you to eat more than you otherwise would. Then, there are those of you who react to stress or depression by eating even when they aren’t hungry.
