Overcome Eating Disorders and Obesity Be Happy! – Part 1

obesity disorder

OBESITY AND EATING DISORDERS INTRODUCTION

There is a classification about eating disorders in the American Medical Association (AMA), but obesity is not in it. Eating disorders are described as illnesses that are characterized by irregular eating habits and severe distress or concern about body weight or shape.

A.M.A. has recognized that being overweight or obese is a chronic disease and not simply due to poor self-control or a lack of will power. But A.M.A. has no legal-scientific worldwide authority to make this kind of decision.

Overcome Eating Disorders and Obesity Be Happy! - Part 1 4

Being a disease and/or an eating disorder has to be taken seriously, by the patients, their relatives and the medical doctors taking care of them. Obesity leads millions of people around the world to unwanted weight gain, and the roles that excess weight and fat maldistribution play in contributing to chronic diseases such as

  • Heart Disease

  • Diabetes,

  • Dyslipidemia,

  • Liver problems

  • Osteomuscular diseases,

  • Some types of cancer.

AVOID BASHING

Bashing overweight patient sufferers is not only ignorant but cruel. That is not the proper way to treat another human being.

Usually, any person who bullies another one about any issue, it’s because of fear and ignorance. In the health campaign against fat, we should avoid bashing obesity and idealizing thinness, which only fosters the self-destructive thought processes that characterizes eating disorders from anorexia to obesity.

Anorexics with jutting collarbones think they’re fat. Binge-eaters often think, after eating too much, that they’ve already done the damage so they might as well keep eating.

Overcome Eating Disorders and Obesity Be Happy! - Part 1 5

Apparently, people who overeat are not concerned about body weight or shape. Oh, but they are, they are just reacting in an opposite way to those who deprive themselves from food, like anorexic patients.

Severe obese people feel a lot of guilt after eating enormous amounts of food. They know they are hurting themselves but “there is something that doesn’t let me stop and all I want is to continue eating everything I see”-patients say often.

PREVENTION

Being overweight is the result of over-eating, of an obsession and addiction to eating big and low quality amounts of food. Tackling this problem when it starts is the best way to prevent morbid obesity,  which causes many medical problems and unhappiness to the ones suffering from it.

ADULT BODY MASS INDEX (BMI)

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness.

Adult Body Mass Index (BMI)
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness.

  • If your BMI is less than 18.5, it falls within the underweight range.

  • If your BMI is 18.5 to <25, it falls within the normal.

  • If your BMI is 25.0 to <30, it falls within the overweight range.

  • If your BMI is 30.0 or higher, it falls within the obese range.

Obesity is frequently subdivided into categories:

  • Class 1: BMI of 30 to < 35

  • Class 2: BMI of 35 to < 40

  • Class 3: BMI of 40 or higher. Class 3 obesity is sometimes categorized as “extreme” or “severe” obesity.

Dessert is  a happy food, and they can enlighten anyone’s mood and bring a smile to the face.

Eating excessive volumes of sweets is not good for our health. It can potentially lead to a range of health issues in the future. It doesn’t mean that they can’t be enjoyed in moderation. Take a bite of your favourite chocolate or ice cream.

Eating in moderation is not bad, and we can allow ourselves to have it at least once a week. Don’t deprive yourself, instead reward yourself with it occasionally.

Preparing Iced Tea without Boiling Water

 Preparing Iced Tea without Boiling Water 14

For every 1 quart of water, add 4 tea bags or 1 tablespoon (8-10g) of loose leaf tea. Combine the water and tea into a resealable container and place in the fridge, steeping only for 5 hours for the best flavor. After 5 hours, remove the tea bags or strain.

Preparing Iced Tea without Boiling Water 15

If you want to sweeten your cold-brewed tea, make a simple syrup. This will allow the sugar to sweeten the tea rather than just collecting on the bottom of your cup.

Preparing Iced Tea without Boiling Water 16

Simple syrup: combine equal parts sugar and water (e.g. 1 cup water to 1 cup of sugar; yields about 1.5 cups of simple syrup) in a sauce pan, and heat on the stove until the sugar has dissolved completely. Let it cool, then add to taste to your tea. You can also get creative and add flavoring to the simple syrup by adding fresh herbs or other ingredients after the sugar has dissolved and you’ve removed the syrup from the stove. For example, you could add mint, rosemary, ginger, vanilla, or citrus peel. Let the extra ingredients steep in the syrup while the syrup cools, then remove (leaving in the flavoring ingredients will shorten the shelf life of the syrup).

Strawberry Fiesta Messy Delicious Food It is Time for a Summer Party

My strawberries are thriving. They love the weather we are having in my neck of the woods and they ripe fast, so I am having tons of them everyday. It’s so much fun! This year I fertilized them naturally with leaves from my banana trees and other sustainable methods I have; maybe that’s why they are so happy.

I have so many that now I have to figure out a way to feed the family with them so no strawberry goes to waste. Well, my hens eat them when for some reason they go bad. Usually I eat them fresh right off the plant, in shakes, I make refreshing drinks, jam, popsicles, shortcake, and even salads.

Dr Castro’s Exotic Chicken Salad Recipe with Yogurt

This recipe is not of my invention, I just made it my own by adding more and different ingredients to give it that special flavor that my family (especially my daughter Alexandrea) loves. You have to get Greek yogurt,  Dijon mustard with honey, sweet cranberries and toasted pecans,  since these are the “secret” ingredients that make this chicken salad very unique.
