In 2007, I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes, my cholesterol was 270 and I was 40 lbs overweight. I began investigating weight loss programs and the science behind them.
They were often geared towards pre-packaged products that did not fit into my family’s lifestyle. More importantly, most of the programs focus on eating just to lose weight. None focused on making the lifestyle change necessary to avoid repeating past dietary mishaps. Insulin is a key factor to weight loss. Recent studies conclusively find that men, women and children that have “belly fat” are targeted for an earlier death than those without this tendency. This even includes individuals that are not overweight! “Belly Fat” is dangerous due to the fact that it poses a serious risk of disease to the organs it envelops and it is also a clear indicator of high insulin levels. My approach to weight control is an easy, realistic and nutritive way of dining that decreases inflammation in the body by targeting insulin, which results in significant and consistent weight loss.
One in three children are affected by childhood obesity today, making it the most common chronic disease of childhood. According to the CDC, obese adolescents are more likely to have prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels indicate a high risk for development of diabetes. They are more at risk to develop adult health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.
Children who are overweight are unable to participate actively with their peers, leaving them isolated, feeling alone and helpless. Often they become the target of bullying. This can occur in many forms, including verbally at school, isolation during PE class, social exclusion, as well as online and more.
This bias can extend even to professionals. In a recent study, it was reported that teachers perceive overweight students to be untidy, overly emotional, less likely to succeed at work, and more likely to have family problems compared with their normal-weight peers. In some cases, it has been noted that doctors examining overweight patients spend less time with them, engage in less discussion, are reluctant to perform preventive health screenings, and do fewer interventions.
All of this combined can readily result in low self-esteem and lack of confidence, creating a vicious cycle of resorting to food for comfort. A destructive pattern of behavior that is carried, along with their weight, into their adult lives. These children get a negative head start in life with emotional problems and physical illnesses directly related to their weight.
