Weight loss is difficult. Struggling with that extra weight and feeling frustrated? Longing to break the cycle of comfort eating? Tired of losing at weight loss? Or maybe you’ve been trying—without success—to get down to the size you were in high school or on your wedding day.
It’s not your fault! We inherited the “energy conserving” genes of our hunter and gatherer ancestors while living in an “obesegenic” society. This means that our environment and circumstances outside of our control and often outside of awareness nudge us to make choices that ultimately end up hurting our health and well-being. As a result, obesity in the United States is a major problem and increasingly throughout the world.
Obesity hurts personally, as health and quality of life plummets. Health care professionals generally agree that the more obese a person is, the more likely he or she is to develop health problems. Emotional suffering may be one of the most painful parts of obesity. Because of the negative stereotypes in our culture, people who are considered overweight or obese often face prejudice or discrimination in the job market, at school, and in social situations.
The good news is that if you’re overweight, losing just 10% of your body weight is associated with a myriad of health benefits, including lowering blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood sugar, and reducing your risk for heart disease.
