Some people say that being obese is a lifestyle choice, but any choice that threatens your longevity cannot be, by the very nature of the word, a lifestyle choice. If anything, that choice is for a shorter, and more strenuous life. So if you have a loved one struggling with obesity, and their argument for not changing their habits is that they don’t care how they look—they’re happy—remind them that fighting obesity isn’t just about looking good, it’s about being healthy. And they will have a very difficult time continuing to feel happy (as they claim to be) if health complications start to attack their body. The human body, organs, joints and all, wasn’t designed to operate under excessive weight and that’s a reality we have to face. Here are the surprising health risks of obesity.
If you or a loved one has struggled for years to advance in your career, even if they are more than qualified, and have even been praised for their work, it may be because they are obese.
