We live in a fast paced world with high stress and sedentary life styles and very little time to exercise or cook healthy meals. On top of it we are faced with temptations of quick and unhealthy food choices, hormonal triggers and declining metabolic rate with age leading to overweight and obesity.
Obesity has become a major issue of concern affecting the health of millions of people. Today, 2 out of every 3 Americans are overweight. Being Obese is not only aesthetically unpleasant, but is also the root cause of several other medical problems like Hypertension, Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, High Cholesterol, Sleep Apnea, Low Back and Knee Pains, Infertility, Gout, Low Self Esteem and Low Energy Levels leading to poor quality and reduced longevity of life.
We all have tried to lose those extra pounds at some point of time in our lives and know how difficult and frustrating it can be and give up on the efforts midway. However, even though it is hard and challenging, losing weight and being fit is very important and will pay huge rewards throughout your life.
Unlike in the past, science and research today had advanced in developing techniques and medicines that can help control weight and treat obesity, a scientific branch called Bariatric Medicine. American Board of Bariatric Medicine trains and certifies physicians in leading edge methods to help patients manage their weight.
