It is undeniable that a modern lifestyle has accelerated the rate of obesity throughout the world. According to World Health Organization in 2021, more than 1.9 billion adults are overweight globally, out of which 650 million are obese.
Being overweight and obese poses a real problem for the world population as they can lead to chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, stroke, Type II diabetes and high blood pressure. Besides this, the extra weight also affects musculoskeletal health, putting stress on joints, potentially leading to osteoarthritis and affecting the quality of life.
The good news is that being overweight and obese is preventable. Losing weight requires willpower and dedication and, more importantly, making appropriate lifestyle changes and adopting the right methods.
