Obesity & Healthcare

Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

Oh my, is healthcare ever in the news these days!

So many promises, so much loose talk - and where it ends, no one knows.

One thing for certain is that very few healthcare givers fuss about obesity; it's generally the insurance companies.

Think about it.... If everyone were fit as a fiddle, who'd be playing the doctor's song? A fitter society equals less need for healthcare - less health risks involved.

Then again, a very high percentage of doctors, as well as dietitians and nutritionists fall into the 'Obese Category', although they have seen first-hand what obesity can do to the human body.

In actuality, the Obesity Situation is a two-headed snake with healthcare on one side and the Death Angel on the other.

What a tag team! Everyone wins! A win-win situation! Well, patients excluded.

On the other Diet Hand, politicians and leaders of the community are proposing ridiculous Obesity Solutions - from ditching food favorites from the schools to taxing sodas, pizza and burgers.

There has even been the suggestion of replacing hot buttered popcorn at the movies with healthier options such as fruit. Might be a good suggestion - until Moviegoer Delta slips and falls on the banana peel tossed on the floor by Moviegoer Little Jimmy, eh?

Fatty School Menus

As to eliminating sodas at school - good grief, how about eliminating the unhealthy school menus?

Diet Bites has posted multiple articles on this topic, in addition to local school menus. Not to mention how kids receive little activity while stapled to a desk all day, and then in the evening as they complete home assignments. It's all a little nutty.

In Weight Loss Summary

The bottom line is that almost-all foods, including food favorites can be part of a healthy daily diet.

There is only one solution to the Obesity Solution Movement, and that resides within each and every human. No one wants to be told what they can and can't to in regards to their weight as it's a very personal area - one that requires not only the patient, but also the input of a qualified professional.
