The fact that you are reading this now indicates that you have decided to do something about your weight problem, and that decision represents a very significant shift in your way of thinking and attitude to the shape that you are in.
I don’t know many overweight or obese people who are happy with their physical condition, but I do know plenty of people who are seemingly content to put off their decision to start losing weight to another day. Unfortunately for people like this, another day never comes, either because they simply choose to ignore their problem or because their weight problem is a primary factor that helps to kill them off early.
I make no apology for putting it in such blunt, stark terms, because a s suggested, people who are significantly overweight or obese represent an increasingly troublesome burden on global society.
The day when health services collapse under the weight of treating people whose problems are generally a result of their own self- indulgence and inability or unwillingness to curb their bad habits is not far away if we don’t start reversing the trend towards obesity very soon.
