Obesity doesn’t happen over night.
It gradually develops over time, as a result of consuming too many calories and/or limited activity;
The average physically active woman needs about 2,000 calories a day.
Most women (and men) aren’t physically active, yet they’re still consuming in excess of 2,000 calories a day.
Most people have jobs that involve sitting at a desk for the majority of the day. They also rely on their cars rather than walking or cycling.
For relaxation, people tend to watch Netflix, scroll through social media, play computer games and rarely take regular exercise.
Gone are the days where you’d walk to and from town, to pick up (and carry) your shopping on daily basis, now it’s one click on the Amazon app and it’s delivered directly to your front door.
If you’re not active enough throughout the day, your are not going to use the energy (calories) provided from the food you eat and the excess energy will be stored as body fat.
While there are some RARE genetic conditions that can cause obesity, such as Prader-Willi syndrome, there’s no reason why most people can’t lose weight.
More often than not, it is a case of won’t rather than can’t, when it comes to weight loss and making a change to your current lifestyle.
You know what you should be doing (if you don’t, ask), it’s time to start doing it.
Netflix will keep pumping out content to ensure you’re glued to your sofa paying your monthly subscription fee, Amazon will keep making it easier and easier to shop and the England football team will never win a World Cup, because all the kids will be playing the virtual version instead.
