How To Prevent Health Risks Of Obesity?

The National Health and Nutrition Examination says that data from 2017-2018 indicates that nearly 1 in 3 adults (30.7%) are overweight, more than 2 in 5 adults (42.4%) have obesity, and about 1 in 11 adults (9.2%) have severe obesity. Obesity can impact your health both physically and mentally.

Taking the steps necessary to manage your health and watch your weight can prevent you from chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Healthy weight does not come from short-term dietary changes, rather it is about a lifestyle that involves healthy eating and regular physical activity.

Weight control is to help you manage and maintain a healthy body weight. Reaching a healthy weight can prevent weight-related chronic conditions like heart diseases, diabetes, enhance sleep, and improve your overall health.

Chronic diseases — such as diabetes, cancer, asthma, and heart disease — are the leading causes of death and disability. The United States spends $4 trillion (around $12,000 per person) annually on healthcare, and more than 75% went to treating the rising prevalence of chronic diseases. Fortunately, Harvard School of Public Health, and Stanford Center on Longevity’s evidence-based research proved that building healthy lifestyle habits can prevent chronic disease, extend longevity, and improve quality of life.

The Liu Charitable Foundation thus devoted the charitable Lively Habits App and a series of Lively Habits Video intended to educate, motivate, and condition personal behavior change by integrating 10 evidence-based lifestyle habits to benefit public health for a low-cost and low-maintenance healthy life.
