Obese people need to diagnose the underlying cause. In my research, most obesity today is tied to the food supply poisons - processed foods.
The US had an obesity rate of 10% in the 60's. Today it is 30%.
WHAT CHANGED? The food and maybe water supply.
Frances obesity rate was 10% in a published 2004 survey.
What separates them from the rest of the world? They had the cleanest food supply in the world at that time.
What should an obese person should do ?
Removing or minimizing processed foods. They need to learn how to cook their own foods from raw ingredients. Also get a good water filter. Sometimes this alone can do wonders.
But those processed foods if eaten over a long enough period of time will likely have damaged their body. It requires detective work to try to correct this and heal. If one is fortunate enough to heal then maybe something good will happen. If underlying medical problem is not addressed, it may be impossible to reverse. No amount of exercise or sunshine will help.
The 10% of the obese will likely have medical problems to begin with that may or may not be able to diagnose. The toxic food supply will just add to their problems.
Sometimes people can nudge their obesity problem by doing a little bit of this and that in their life style.
I think for most, there is a real medical problem.
What compounds this further is the disinformation on losing weight that pervades the media. They focus on calories and exercise. They stay quiet about the toxins in the food supply and underlying medical issues. People imbibe this disinformation. Many of those weight loss companies sell processed foods. Overcoming this is the biggest barrier for people. This is a mind problem.
The other barrier is the danger of the conventional medical system to their health. This is where many go for advice about their health problems. This is another disinformation barrier. This is a mind problem also.
Obesity is not only a body problem but a mind one also. The mind problems are the biggest hurdle even if you had a solution for all the body problems.
