The Scary Truth About Obesity and Lifestyle Choices

fashion6

It is unfortunate that many of today’s disease result from poor lifestyle choices. It is a known fact that diabetes mellitus 2, heart diseases, certain types of cancer, asthma, osteoarthritis and sleep apnea are caused by obesity. It has been labeled by several studies as “one of the leading preventable causes of death worldwide.”

The sad case is that obesity is preventable. If it’s not genetically caused, it is the result of poor diet and lack of exercise. Both are clearly lifestyle choices. Indeed, just how much hype is there about healthy eating and getting active, but still studies indicate disturbing statistics: between 110,000-350,000 deaths in the United States are attributed to obesity every year, and a staggering 1 million deaths in Europe are blamed on it. To be blunt, those whose excess weight are not hereditary or caused by endocrine disorders or mental illnesses, are choosing slow and painful deaths. This perception is rather scary because then you would look at obesity mortality rates as conscious choices to end one’s life.

OTHER CAUSES OF OBESITY: Medications, endocrine disorders and psychiatric illness.

When is a person is considered obese? The Body Mass Index (BMI) is the measurement used to determine if a person is overweight. This uses the following formula: BMI = mass (kg) / height (m)2 or mass (lb) / height (in) )2 x 703. According to the World Health Organization, those with a BMI between 25- 29.9 are overweight; 30-34.9 BMI, class I obesity; 35-39.9 BMI, class II obesity and 40 BMI, class III obesity. Meanwhile, those with a BMI of 18.5 and less are considered underweight. Those with BMI between 18.5-24.9 are considered to have normal weight.

Being overweight does not happen overnight. A person does not go to bed weighing 110 lbs and wakes up weighing 200 lbs the following day. It is a systematic process, deliberately or not, of choosing all the wrong foods and leading a sedentary lifestyle. However, that is the keyword: choice. People need to make smart choices about what and how they eat. We need to find time in our busy schedules to get some cardio activity (one that’s enjoyable for us) going. We need to make the decision to live well and healthy lifestyles. Apparently this decision-making process starts in the mind, which means once we have made our choices we must be strong-willed to carry it through.

This does not mean that you have to stop eating cakes and candies altogether, or you eliminate rice and potatoes from your diet. It does not mean training hard every day for the 10K marathon. By deciding on a healthy lifestyle, we also strive for balance. Life would be boring if there is no balance. In the same breath that the world would be in chaos if there is no balance of power.

The Number One Dress Guide

Buying a dress can be a fun, but not always easy task, and it is certainly wise to consult a dress guide before spending your hard-earned cash on your new garment! One of the main considerations that you need to make when buying a dress is finding one that flatters your shape

Dress Guide: Flatter Your Shape!

No matter how much women may sometimes dislike it, we are all made differently – some women have curves, some do not, some women are tall and thin whilst others are lacking in the height department. Whatever your shape, you need to find a dress that is perfect for your body type and gives you a great confidence boost!

If you’re tall and thin, with no visible curves then you may well find that an A-line dress can really accentuate your upper body and flow from under your bust. On the other hand, if you have an apple shaped body where your mid-section is thick and your belly seems to stick out, then stay away from form fitting dresses, choosing instead an Empire cut style dress which can take the attention away from your waistline.

Women with athletic-shaped bodies, with a large bone structure, wide shoulders and few curves, would be advised to choose a dress with a low neckline and a fill skirt which can help give you a more feminine shape. There are so many dresses out there that deciding which style is most flattering to you can save you a lot of time and trying on!

Dress Guide: Boost your Confidence!

Whatever body shape you have and whichever type of dress you choose to go for, it is vital that you feel at your most confident whilst sporting your new item of clothing.

If you have a favourite designer then you may want to choose one of their creations to make you feel like a million a dollars when sporting your new dress. If you love the wrap dress, for example, why not splash out on a Diane von Furstenberg number? Furstenberg is the pioneer of the wrap dress and a leading dress designer – for quality and style you can’t go wrong! Hopefully you have found this dress guide useful and are now ready to buy your new killer dress!
