One of the biggest misconceptions about weight loss is that “obesity is a disease,” and that it has “risk factors.” Obesity is a symptom, not the cause, of an unhealthy body. Fat, in and of itself, is not directly responsible for the problems of overweight people. The problem is the unhealthy body that created the perfect environment for fat in the first place. It’s the unhealthy body that creates health risks. You cannot be healthy and fat at the same time. Obesity is a severe out-of-balance state. The drug companies would like you to think that obesity is a disease; an epidemic that needs to be treated with a drug.
Concentrating on weight rather than health means that you have been trying to solve the wrong problem. You need to switch your goal to getting healthy. Only by getting healthy will the weight come off and stay off.
FAT is not a cushion or an insulator. It is an energy storage or survival organ, which by the way produces hormones. When the health of a person goes south, their fat, or shall we say potential energy, is forced to compensate and expand. If you were the body, where would be the most important location to store this energy? It would be around the vital organs of course; thus the large sagging bellies you see everywhere.
So, focus on your health, not your weight, and get healthy, lose weight, and feel great!
