Bellevue Personal Training | Negative Consequences of Obesity

As a nation, our number #1, most pressing health problem, may well be obesity. Using current guidelines obesity is defined as being 40# or more overweight. This has become such a pressing issue that it now has a name: The Obesity Epidemic. The percentage of Americans with obesity is so high that it has begun affecting insurance premiums, which will likely be much higher in the future for those dealing with this issue.

How did we get there? Too much processed, high fat, or high carb foods; little to no exercise; sedentary lifestyle; even our high tech lives contribute. The consequences of obesity are many. The sad part is small lifestyle changes, which usually lead to much bigger changes, can have a huge impact on helping turn things around. Below are the consequences:

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Chronic Foot and Leg Pain
  • Body Dissatisfaction
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Reduced Physical Function
  • Increased Risk of Several Forms of Cancer
