Alarming obesity statistics

 

The United States and rest of the world are fighting an epidemic of obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, dubbed by some as diabesity.

Just a quick look at the alarming statistics 

CDC Facts of overweight and obesity

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control(CDC), about 35% of adults age 20 years and over who are obese in 2011-2012 in the United States.
  • A staggering 69% of adults age 20 years and over are overweight,or obese in the year 2011-2012.

Children and adolescents

  • Among adolescents aged between 12-19 years of age, about 18.4% are considered obese in 2009-2010.
  • Among children age 6-11 years of age, about 18.0% are considered obese in 2009-2010.
  • Among children age 2-5 years of age, about 12.1% are obese in 2009-2010.

Source: Prevalence of Obesity in the United States, 2009–2010

Statistics on metabolic syndrome: about 35% of all adults in the US are considered to have metabolic syndrome. The underlying process that causes metabolic syndrome is called insulin resistance and this affects up to 71% of the entire adult population.

Although traditionally, it was thought that you gain weight first and then get metabolic issues, there is increasing amount of evidence pointing to the opposite - you get insulin resistance, get compensatory increase in insulin levels which in turn causes a lot of weight gain due to the anabolic effects of weight gain.

Watch this amazing ted talk video to understand what insulin resistance causes to your body and how we might be fighting the wrong war, fighting obesity instead of the cause of weight gain!

How does insulin resistance cause weight gain?

This process of insulin resistance also explains the sugar cravings, overeating and weight gain - not the other way round. Since the cause and effect of weight gain was misunderstood, we are used to blaming the patient or the victim and their eating habits when in fact it could be their underlying insulin resistance that is causing them to crave certain foods. Understanding insulin resistance, which also causes upper body and abdominal weight gain, acanthosis nigricans, fatty liver, polycystic ovaries, cholesterol abnormalities and ultimately weight gain is the key or secret to losing weight.

  • What are the clinically proven and effective methods for losing weight fast, and keeping it off?
  • What is the secret of losing weight and maintaining the weight?
  • I do eat healthy, go to the gym but still cannot seem to shed the pounds that easy - what might be the reason?
  • Why am I gaining weight in the tummy and upper part of the body?

If you have one or more of the above questions, you are at the right place. Let us review some of these issues. The causes and consequences of weight gain are discussed separately. The focus of this article is the 8 proven measures to lose weight fast and safe!


 

Weight loss method 1.

The most effective and time tested method involves a very low calorie diet of 800-1000 calories or low calorie diet of 1000 calories and up. he Low-calorie Diet (LCD)

An LCD limits calories, but not as much as a VLCD. A typical LCD may provide „ 1,000–1,200 calories/day for a woman „ 1,200–1,600 calories/day for a man The number of calories may be adjusted based on your age, weight, and how active you are. An LCD usually consists of regular foods, but could also include meal replacements. As a result, you may find this type of diet much easier to follow than a VLCD.

Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCD)

VLCD stands for Very Low Calorie Diet, and is a special diet that provides up to 800 calories per day. VLCD diets use commercial formulas such as the W8MD weight loss supplements,  usually liquid shakes, soups, or bars, which replace all your regular meals. These formulas are not the same as the meal replacements you can find at grocery stores or pharmacies, which are meant to replace one or two meals a day. These are very low calorie and are usually available through a medical office such as the W8MD. Costing as little as $2.20 per meal replaced, the W8MD weight loss supplements can not only help you lose weight but also potentially save up to 15% of the monthly grocery costs!

Weight loss method 2.

Role of exercise in losing weight - does exercise really help you lose weight on its own or is it pretty useless on its own as reported on time magazine and admitted by Bally's? Why exercise only works for maitaining the weight and for losing, it is the diet with or without exercise although with exercise is recommended.

Weight loss method 3.

Appetite suppressant medications to help curb the appetite and improvement metabolism. There are many new and old weight loss medications some of which use combination weight loss medications for most effective suppression of appetite and cravings such as the new Qsymia or Contrave for fast and effective weight loss.

Weight loss method 4.

Bariatric weight loss surgery for losing weight - what are the pros and cons of surgical approaches to losing weight. Although surgical options are one of the many options for losing weight, most people might regain the weight even after surgery and it does have many surgical complications, one year process of many tests and one need to try the non-surgical options first any way! If you look at how you lose weight post surgery, you will be given a VLCD diet post surgery which can be done even without surgery with similar results! 

Weight loss method 5.

Correction of the underlying causes of weight gain such as insulin resistance, sleep related factors, hormonal imblances, stress, nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, medication induced weight gain, eating disorders etc.

Weight loss method 6.

Low carbohydrate diet or low fat diet for losing weight - what is the evidence. While the question of low fat or low carbohydrate still rages, the scientific evidence is clearly in favor of a low carbohydrate diet. Some people confuse eating healthy as weight loss but it is important to note that eating healthy is more for maintaining the weight and losing weight is about burning the fat, a process known as ketosis. Learn more on VLCD and LCD diet and how the specially formulated low calorie and low carbohydrate weight loss protein supplements like the W8MD medical weight loss supplements can help.

Weight loss method 7.

What about the commercial weight loss methods - should I try a physician supervised weight loss or non-physician weight loss measures?

Although there are many commercial methods and diet supplements, unless there is a physician trained in the field of obesity medicine, many of these programs may not be suitable for you. The safest approach is to find a weight loss program that offers ongoing support with trained weight loss experts with knowledge of the underlying causes of weight gain and clinically proven measures in helping you lose weight! 

Weight loss method 8.

What is the most effective way to lose weight?

Combination of a VLCD or LCD diet, a little bit of physical activity of 20-30 minutes a day with appetite suppression under medical supervision - by far the most effective and fastest method to losing weight non-invasive manner.

 How can W8MD medical weight loss centers of America help me lose weight?
