“I just love eating.” “I hardly eat anything, and yet I don’t lose weight.” I feel clumsy and fat.”
This or a similar experience is what overweight people report.
It is not just a question of failing to meet the common standards of ideal beauty. Today we know that being chronically overweight has many consequences, such as adult onset diabetes, high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, damage to joints, fatty liver, hormonal disturbances and decreased fertility.
It doesn’t matter whether it is triggered by excessive intake of food, genetic or psychological factors or lack of exercise or sleep.
