We hope our famous and motivational obesity quotes and sayings from doctors and health experts help you become self-disciplined and wiser in your food choices.
Obesity in children and adults is a serious epidemic problem in many countries dubbed as fast food nations.
But who is to be blamed for the bad food on our plates? There are so many factors that cause obesity. Some are pure genetics, some are social influences, and mostly it is individuals’ lifestyle preference.
It could be due to the industrial revolution (late 19th century), grocery stores filled with processed and ultra-processed junk foods, the ready-to-eat high-fat and high sugar comfort foods, our sedentary lifestyle, our inclination towards digital games than playing outside, etc. The reason could be endless.
But before it simply goes out of hand and increases your chance of early death or disease-filled life, it is time to change eating habits and listen to doctors on reducing obesity at the earliest.
Switching to fresh fruits and veggies and slowly cutting down on sugar intake, refined carbohydrates, and fried foods is a sure-shot way to reduce obesity.
