Why people are Becoming Overweight!


Dear Dieter,

Are you sick and tired of looking in the mirror and seeing nothing but fat? Think about it. Who wants to be fat right? This is especially true if you are a woman.

You take pride in how your body looks, and feel betrayed when you look at yourself and all you see is an obese or overweight body.

That is not what you want for your life! You want a body to be proud of.
Unfortunately, obesity is a pandemic in this country and it is only getting worse by the year. Why is this happening? 

The problem lies in several areas. One big area is the advertising industry. Every time you turn on the TV all you see are ads for food products.
In fact, obesity has really become a serious issue worldwide. The heath condition of the majority of people in developed nations has deteriorated to such an extent that it has literally become a crisis.
According to experts, about 70% of the adult population living in the U.S is overweight. This means if you are thin and healthy or make up the minority.
Another reason for obesity is that people watch fast food commercials on TV that highlight McDonald’s or Burger King.
When people like you see these ads, you think how quickly you can get that food, so you don’t have to cook. So you go out and buy the stuff, only to realize later it caused you to gain weight.
The food industry wants you to do this so you can get fat. Then you will go out and spend more money on diet pills. This way you can get skinny and then start all over by going back to the fast food joints to get fat again. It is a catch-22 scenario. It is a vicious cycle.
Another reason we are getting fat, is because most of us live sedentary lives. Kids are not spending their time running around and playing games outside. Instead, they jump on their video games or spend time surfing the Internet and chatting with friends or others.
The biggest reason for obesity is because of the foods eaten. Everything that is bought from the store is processed.
When you think about it, you may be one of those who see yourself as fat and maybe unattractive. If you do, I have news for you. You are not alone….
