Obesity And Its Consequences

Obesity is a very serious problem needs to be addressed by nations across the world as a major detriment to our society. Foods that cause abnormal conditions for human beings are not sustainable and should not be consumed. However, because of the dangerously high levels of sugar these foods are addictive to people who eat them and it is becoming harder and harder for them to abstain from it despite severe consequences to their health.

People are in fact dealing with this problem symptomatically by getting plastic surgery for their body instead of solving the cause of the problem. Liposuction is more popular now than it has ever been. Fat is gained by excess consumption of unnecessary foods and then trimmed by surgeons because it does not look good aesthetically. Queensland is the most popular destination in Australia for plastic surgery. Cairns rhinoplasty is a procedure where the shape of the nose is altered based on the person’s preferences. This is often required after fat trimming from the face or neck as it changes the overall appearance and facial features.

A recent study has indicated the obese patients are more likely to have an adverse medical event that requires re-hospitalization within 30 days of being discharged after having plastic surgery. This is indicative of lower healing potential and slower processes in the body that aid recovery in obese people. Hospitals are realizing that patients need to be selected more carefully and screened before being admitted for surgery. Having access to a variety of healthcare services is a great benefit for people. However the understanding that obesity in most cases is a lifestyle choice does not seem to breed much.

Instead, we have a system that is obsessed with treating only the symptoms and effects of the problems. Surgery is an expensive option for most people. Yet, it is more popular and sensationalised than ever before. Even in remote areas in Victoria, there are surgical facilities such as rhinoplasty ballarat that offer these services. Recovering from plastic surgery is no different from general surgery such as a heart operation. The risks associated are more or less the same. Permanent scarring or tissue damage is a risk.

Internal blood loss is another potential complication of any surgery that involves an incision. In many cases when expectations are not properly managed or discussed, it can be annoying for patients that they need to come back for a second surgery because the first one did not fully reach the desired outcome. This adds another layer of complications and risks. If a person is fully convinced despite all the potential risks involved that they need to get surgery to improve the quality of their appearance, then they should at least take some time trying to find the best surgeon available to them, someone they can trust and communicate with fully. Plastic Surgeon Directory AU is a great place to get started for this, since they have lists of surgeons based on their competence and experience.

Although surgery should not be the first option to solve obesity, it can be used to aid the overall effort, such as exercise and dieting. It can offer that extra bit of results that would take a long time to result from natural or organic efforts.

Sugars and Carbohydrates

Oh yes, its time to talk about sugar. Most topics of discussion revolving around diet usually go through ups and downs in terms of what the solution is. For example, some times fats are good, then after some research, they’re bad. Then some kinds of it are good and others are bad. However, with sugars there has been little argument and is almost unanimously believed that they are bad.

However, there is often some misconception about what categories of foods are included in sugars. Are they just plain processed sugar you put in your tea and the maple syrup on pancakes? Not quite. Carbohydrates are the real culprit and if you think that you have a low-sugar diet just because you stay away from cakes and cream, you’re mistaken. Carbohydrates from rice of bread are very quickly converted into glucose for your body to draw energy from. And while this is normal and healthy, it essentially means that  a low carbohydrate diet is a low sugar diet.

It is important to find the balance for yourself between how much of this you need and how much is too much. And this level is different for different people. Some people have a higher metabolism and despite consumption of a lot of carbohydrates, their body manages to burn it all off efficiently. On the other hand, some people have a very difficult time losing fat despite dieting because even the smallest amount of excess carbohydrates get deposited as fat for storage. This is unchangeable and a part of your genetic composition. But we have to work with what we have.

Figuring out your body’s metabolism is an important and one of the primary steps towards planning your body and diet transformation. So do not ignore it and the changes you make will be doubly efficient and effective.

Probiotics And Digestion Of Nutrients

You’re probably wondering what probiotics have to do with eating healthy and and maintaining an active lifestyle. Well, a lot! Yes, it is important to make sure you’re getting the optimum amount of nutrients from your food but it is just as important that your body is able to digest theses nutrients and not reject your new dietary intake.

Your digestive system has its own habits based on your diet and it changes as you change your diet. However, this process takes some time. You help accelerate this process and even improve it in some cases. If you start to include more greens into your diet, then its likely that you are not absorbing all the nutrients from it. As such, if you’re thinking about improving the quality of your food intake, you should also consider including some probiotics to aid your digestive system so it can get the maximum nutrient value from these foods.

Remember that the optimum levels of most nutrients are not as advertised by the labels on your frozen chicken nugget bags. These “daily recommended levels” are only the minimum required level for your body to stay disease free and not malnourished. Our goal is not to just prevent disease (albeit this will happen naturally), but to optimize our diet so that our mind and body are in sync and “awake”. In future posts, we will be talking about cutting sugars and sugary foods from your diet. Unlike most people’s beliefs,  sugar does not only include soft drinks and cola.

You can get your probiotics in the form of powdered supplements or pills. These are not dangerous at all and and oversupply will do no harm. Look for them in your local pharmacy or shop around online as there are many brands available. But if you’re going to be turning your diet around, dont forget to take this very vital and important step towards your success.
