The Effects of Eating Disorders

Obesity is an epidemic in America that should be handled with care and respect.  Dr. Frenzel is dedicated to helping patients achieve their weight loss goals through bariatric surgery.  Traditional weight loss methods include diet and exercise.  It’s important to note that diet is not limited to fad diets such eating carbs only or cutting all carbs out.

Unfortunately, there is a growing number of people struggling with obesity who develop eating disorders.  Understanding the beauty of eating right can make a drastic difference in the lives of those struggling with their weight.

One of the main problems Americans face is the complacency of fast food and quick service.  Waiting to eat until you are starving often leads to grabbing a quick bite at a local fast food chain.  Eating three meals a day makes it seem like eating is restricting and should be taken advantage of when available.  Educating people on the different ways to eat in a healthy manner can make a difference in the American society.

One study completed shows that teenagers with obesity are developing more eating disorders but are not confronted or treated by health care professionals because of their size.  While noticing bulimia or anorexia is more noticeable in smaller sufferers, overweight teenagers are often overlooked.

Diet pills, starvation, and other unhealthy eating habits are plaguing Americas just as strongly as overeating and indulgence.  It is necessary to stay educated on healthy eating habits to ensure that you and your family are safe and healthy.

When you close your eyes and imagine someone struggling with an eating disorder, you might envision a young girl with bones protruding, frail, and weak.  But, this is the stereotype.  When you are obese with an eating disorder, the health risks you face are drastic, just as any other sufferer of these diseases.

Side effects of eating disorders include feeling faint and lightheaded, shaking, constant hunger pains, and much more.  Imagine if young Americans knew how to lose weight in a healthy and effective manner.  More so, imagine the energy levels and health of eating right.

The number one way to lose weight in a healthy manner is to exercise regularly, not obsessively, and eat several small meals a day.  The calories you consume matter.  They always will.  Restricting yourself to a 1200 calorie diet and eating one fast food meal a day is not healthy.  Instead eat eggs and whole grain toast for breakfast, snack of nuts and raisins, eat plenty of proteins such as fish and chicken, avoid processed foods, sweets, and drinks that are filled with sugar and carbonation.

By meal planning, you will notice that you have more energy, which is perfect for exercising.  The struggle with people struggling with an eating disorder is the craving for control.  Exercising can have the same effect.  Self-discipline is necessary so that you do not overexert yourself.  Thirty minutes to one hour a day of cardio and weight training will help you to achieve the body you want in a healthy manner.
