Overweight, Obesity, and Solutions

On September 17, 2020, the report "State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America" was published by the Trust for America's Health and there they reported that the United States has a 42.4% rate of obesity in adults. In that report it was also found that childhood obesity reached 19.3% among young people aged 2-19 years. Really overweight and obesity have become a real "epidemic."

Overweight andobesity are a cause of great concern because excess body fat can overload the heart, bones, and muscles. It also increases the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, varicose veins, breast cancer and gallbladder disease.

Overweight and obesity can be caused by::

· the type of feeding

· lack of exercise

· stress

· health problems


Following a healthy diet is important for good health. It is good to put on the plate foods with a low content of saturated and trans fats, and that have little cholesterol. As well as reduce the consumption of sugar, salt (sodium) and alcohol and consume more fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grain products and nuts since they contain vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Avoid fast food and choose food with good nutritional content and low in calories.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  indicates that to lose around

From 1 to 2 pounds per week, you should reduce your caloric intake by 500-1000 calories per day.


Exercise is key to staying healthy as it strengthens bones, heart and lungs, tones muscles, improves vitality, relieves depression, and helps you fall asleep better. Exercise really should be a lifelong habit and is key in any weight loss or maintenance program. Of course, if you have health problems such as obesity, hypertension, or diabetes, consult with the doctor.


Stress is normal because it is the body's reaction to a challenge or demand, but when it is too much it can lead to health problems such as insomnia, upset stomach, anxiety, and mood swings.
