Nutritional imbalances are a leading cause of the obesity epidemic exploding throughout many countries of the world today. Eating the wrong quantities of foods, or the wrong foods, is an easy trap to fall into. There are many cheap choices of the wrong foods and the lack of understanding of what the body needs (and what it needs to avoid). Busy people may rely on junk food, fast food, and easy-to-prepare processed products to help them keep up with their crazy schedule. Sadly doing this fails when the foods they’re eating harm their health, productivity and wellness.
Obesity, being overweight and a raised BMI (Body Mass Index) is a major risk factor for diseases such as:
- Heart disease and stroke, which were the leading cause of death in 2017
- Joint pain and joint damage from excess weight bearing
- Some cancers (including endometrial, breast, ovarian, prostate, liver, gallbladder, kidney, and colon)
- Hormonal imbalances
- Food allergies
- Digestive disorders including Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The more you eat highly-processed foods, the more likely you are to gain weight and the more challenging it becomes to lose those extra pounds.
