Many countries are seen spending an exorbitant amount of money on treating and fighting obesity, and this has become a critical issue in several affluent countries. Solutions for this undesired situation are not far from the reach of people, but many find it difficult to absorb those.
First and foremost suggestion, which is globally accepted, is nothing but the alteration of food habits. In the past, when people had less fatty and sugary foods, hardly many had this issue. Compared to today’s generation, they hardly had food in excess, and whatever they had, they had it at the right time. Therefore, having the right food, at right quantity and at right time is a potential measure to fight against obesity.
The second suggestion is the modification of life-style and related habits. To be precise, on top of the unhealthy food they have, the newer generation live a sedentary life. Another factor which is observed among the people, especially the rich countries is the habit of drinking and smoking. It is to be understood that unless and until, these situations are modified, obesity can hardly be wiped out.
The final suggestion is the overall discipline in life. People, especially in rich countries are very poor in maintaining such a discipline, and many of them have increased anxiety and sleep deprivations. Obesity is one such disease, which needs to be addressed effectively only by maintaining a strict discipline in life.
To conclude, it is clear that the issues caused by obesity can be effectively tackled by having appropriate food, avoiding unhealthy habits, modifying life-style and by maintaining a disciplined life. However, today’s generation find it somewhat hesitant to accept these completely.
