Being overweight is not just about the way you look, true most of us like to look good which has a knock on effect of also making us feel good, but there are also the health issue’s that weight gain and obesity are linked to and increasingly causing concern in the medical profession.
The treatment of health problems associated with obesity costs the NHS over £5 billion every year. A staggering amount on an already overstretched service.
When you are overweight you place yourself at risk of Coronary heart disease, increased cholesterol levels and metabolic abnormalities. The risk of becoming diabetic increases, some types of cancer, gout and gallbladder problems are all associated with carrying too much weight plus of course the added pressure on your internal organs and your limbs and joints.
On top of all of this is the stress that can accompany being overweight. When you don’t feel good about yourself you become depressed and stressed out.
Many people’s reaction to stress is to eat, and comfort eaters usually reach for chocolates, biscuits, sweets all the unhealthy options. It then becomes a viscous circle overweight leading to stress, stress leading to comfort eating, which in turn leads to even more weight gain.
Studies recently carried out suggest that many forms of social stress including public speaking, relationship difficulties, work problems, exams and other tests trigger the urge to overeat in many people.
Remember we do not start out being obese, it begins with gaining a few extra pounds, and then a few more which quickly becomes another stone and so on until being just a few pounds over has turned into obesity.
Why not reclaim your life? Become the person you have always wanted to be? You deserve to feel good. To move with ease and confidence. To look good in those clothes you have always wanted to wear. To give yourself the best possible shot at a healthy life.
Today is the time to do something positive about it, according to Shape magazine mounting research shows that Hypnosis can help you lose weight and keep it off longer.
