  • Why are people willing to risk their health to lose weight?

    I've notices this pretty scary trend on this site. As a Master Fitness Trainer, I am concerned with fitness moreso than weight. I understand that people want to lose weight quickly, but at what risk? Is it really worth it? Wouldn't you rather lose weight slowly and improve your health than go on a crash diet that ruins your health, ultimately slows down your metabolism, and causes you to gain more weight?

    What can be done to stop this trend? I know that many Americans are overweight, but I think in the long run, this obsession with quick weight loss is going to cause a health crisis greater than that caused by simply being overweight.

    Why take pills when you have the sedona method? When I started releasing I lost 2,5 pounds in a couple of months, without even wanting it

      There is no doubt the use of the weight lose pills are not best for the longer period of time. So we don't take such type of pills without the permission of good doctors.

              The glamor of being slim and sexy and being able to control and manipulate others with that image and be "loved" for it usually far outweighs any health concerns. A form of hypnosis at work.
              Waking up seems to be the solution.

                This is true that using pills and medicines are harmful for health. It is good to avoid using pills for weight lose. Natural ways are always good for weight lose like exercise and diet.

                  Actually obesity is also a root cause of several diseases. There are a lot of Health Problems that have been noticed in Adults which are a result of obesity. These include:

                  High Blood Pressure
                  Coronary Heart Disease
                  Asthma
                  Heart Stroke
                  Abnormal Blood Fats
                  Diabetes (Type 2)
                  Cancer ( There is a risk for breast, colon, gall bladder & endometrial cancers.)
                  Reproductive Problem

                  So some people are willing to take a risk to avoid problems like these in the mere future. Some people have weight loss pills while other go for weight loss surgery. There are also many who try to lose weight through exercising but only a few stay dedicated till the end(because they don't see any quick results). I know this because I was obese once & it was only last year that I got rid of obesity through lap band surgery.

                    The problem is that many diets promise quick results, but the weight loss is not sustained. This creates a cycle of yo-yo dieting. For long-term weight loss, the best approach is to lose at a slow, steady pace of one to two pounds a week.

                      I have been dieting over a month now and still I can’t avoid on eating. I have a big problem over dieting because when I so yummy food I can’t stop myself from eating. This is hard for me since I want to apply for a flight steward someday. I am now a general manager but my dream job is becoming an FA. Hope I can maintain my figure until I have the right experience for becoming an FA.

                            Hi Eren24!

                            Yes, zannierose's suggestion to write up a goal statement for yourself around this issue is extremely useful if you release on the goal statement.

                            Also, you can release on what thoughts and feelings come up when you are around yummy food. When we eat when we aren't hungry, even if the food is yummy, we are using the food for things other than hunger. The way to release on food and our behavior around food is to make a deal with yourself that allows you to eat whatever you want as long as you release before you eat.

                            Let us now how things unfold,

                              Yup! I have a diet plan and following it. But I think due to stress on work I end up eating a lot when seeing such yummy foods just to comfort myself.
