With obesity reaching epidemic proportions in the US and getting near to that in the UK, something definitely has to change. We can all do our part to try and avoid the disaster which is looming up large, that of having our younger generation being too obese to be useful and even dying at a younger age than the older generation. Although there are things such as cosmetic surgery to try and reverse the signs of over indulgence, we need to tackle the problem before it gets to that stage.
The start has to be made in the home in order to be effective. There is no point in all the teachers and other authority figures giving lectures and examples of healthy eating if the parents do not bother to enforce healthy eating habits in the home. I know of one child, who went home to his mother and told her that there had been a lecture about eating only healthy foods, and the mother told him not to worry about it and that chips are healthy as they are made from a vegetable!
You will find that it is so easy to gain weight and by the time that you realise you have piled on the pounds, it is often too late to just ignore it. You will have to start taking active measures to lose the weight, such as dieting and getting more exercise. If you find that you lose too much weight too quickly, you will be left with loose skin and poor muscle tone. This is where you can turn to the relatively new area of body contouring. In the early days of cosmetic surgery, you had to have liposuction, which was invasive and had a longer recovery period.
These days there are so many other less invasive procedures which can achieve the same results and are cheaper as well as being less painful. There are laser treatments for skin tightening and things such Thermage, which uses radio frequency, and ultrasound to destroy fat cells. There are also injections which are administered to remove the fat from the body. All of these things are less invasive than the usual cosmetic surgery procedures and all have a very short recovery time.
It is often the way that when we are overweight, we tend to feel down and upset about the way that we look. We think that everyone is making fun of us and that we would do anything to try and become slim again. This is when we need to be sensible and realise that we need to take things slowly and that we first need to start with the natural methods of looking good, such as diet, exercise, make up and even clever dressing, before we resort to things such as body shaping. Once we start down this road, it is easy to look upon these procedures as quick fixes to the problem of losing weight.
