With proper nutrition you can lose as much as 5 more pounds a week. If you're overweight, you might lose 15 pounds of fat a week or better
North American diet used with exercise is commonly practiced in Turkey. Therefore, the results of our study may contribute to further defining the effect of diet on the success of weight maintenance.
Obesity is a relatively new health issue with the advent of mass media campaigns, but is now seen across all age groups. It is now more recognisable in middle-aged men at all levels of education. Although obesity affects many aspects of physical and psychological health including cardiovascular disease, more attention needs to be paid to obese adults who may already have an increased risk of diabetes and cancers.
Obesity is defined as an excessive increase in body weight in the context of normal health and energy balance. In contrast to the notion of "overweight" that is most commonly used to describe excessive body fat levels, people with obesity might not possess an excess of body fat per se, but they have a disproportionate amount of body fat relative to their body size. At a population level, excess body fat is one of the major modifiable causes of metabolic comorbidities and mortality. At a personal level, the individual causes of excess body fat can include high-fat diets, physical inactivity, and insufficient sleep.
Some treatment options for obesity are limited in use, but there are few conclusive data to show that any particular weight loss method is superior in reducing long-term health risks. This lack of evidence has led to an acceptance of the current 'treating for obesity in the same way as for the prevention of diabetes' stance. Clearly, more effort is needed to identify the most effective approaches for obesity. We should be cautious in advocating universal treatment guidelines for obesity. There are some key factors that should be taken into account when treating obesity.
Obesity is a multi-dimensional concept which involves features of weight-related parameters, such as body mass index, blood pressure, and health risks. It also includes a multitude of comorbidities and may cause psychological, emotional, and sleep disturbances, impaired self-image, social alienation and limitation in mobility, and reduced quality of life, and in some rare cases death. Given the vast array of comorbidities it is challenging to diagnose, manage, and monitor obesity; and its consequences in human health, including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurological and other disorders.
Because neither weight loss nor changes in diet significantly help morbidly obese patients or healthy controls. Furthermore, a small percentage of lean subjects become morbidly obese. Because lifestyle modification can cause significant discomfort and emotional distress, it would be more desirable to prevent obesity and later try to treat it when it is established.
About 6.8 million people in the United States are affected by obesity. Obesity affects 19% of females aged 20 years or over and 40% of those aged ≥45 years. Recent findings shows a positive relationship between obesity and the risk of hypertension, which implies that obesity may be an important risk factor, other than risk factors such as race, that contributes to hypertension. Obesity has a substantial impact on the United States health care system.
North American clients tended to overestimate their weight because the diets do not give any instruction or help. These patients rarely are asked to change their diet. Dietitians and nutritionists should consider the potential difficulty of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight in North American patients. (J Am Diet Assoc 2005; 126:4-7) Dietitians should work with weight loss plan for their patients as we will be better providers of support for their patients.
Our group demonstrated that obese patients who follow a healthy diet and exercise program had significant improvement in QOL, physical functioning, and mental health. It's important that the patient be educated about these benefits before making any changes in their diet and exercising program.
A Mediterranean diet is an attractive way to promote optimal nutrition in North American society as well as the North American diet being safe for the health of the population by balancing food intake as well as physical activity. The importance of having an optimal diet and exercise should be a key to prevention of weight gain among North American population.
There are numerous diet studies that were written by American scientists. These studies have shown the most significant results and there is no reason to doubt the findings or the results of these studies. The main problem with these studies is that there are many problems with the studies and the researchers that conduct them\n
