Obesity and health pandapack by Georgia Tustin
The biggest percentage of obese people is in America.
Some restaurants, cafés and fast food outlets provide calorie information per portion, but providing this information is not compulsory. Be careful when eating out, as some foods can quickly take you over the limit, such as burgers, fried chicken and some curries or Chinese dishes.
You should avoid fad diets that recommend unsafe practices, such as fasting (going without food for long periods of time) or cutting out entire food groups. These can make you feel ill and are not sustainable, because they don’t teach you long-term healthy eating habits.
This is not to say that all commercial diet programmes are unsafe. Many are based on sound medical and scientific principles and can work well for some people. A responsible diet programme should: educate you about issues such as portion size, making changes to behaviour and healthy eating not be overly restrictive in terms of the type of foods you can eat be based on achieving gradual sustainable weight loss rather than short-term rapid weight loss, which is unlikely to last
On average, people attending a lifestyle weight management programme lose around 3% of their body weight, although this varies considerably.
