for Obesity in Milton Keynes
Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. The official body mass index (BMI), a measurement which compares weight and height, defines people as overweight (pre-obese) when their BMI is between 25 and 30, and obese when it is greater than 30.
Being overweight isn’t just a cosmetic problem; it’s very much a health problem as well. Losing weight isn’t just about looking good, it is about feeling good; it’s about being healthy and living a productive and comfortable life. Above all, it is about avoiding the terrible health consequences of carrying around excessive weight.
The growing evidence shows that if you are overweight you are more likely to develop health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, certain types of cancer, gout (joint pain caused by excess uric acid), and gallbladder disease. Being overweight can also cause problems such as sleep apnoea (interrupted breathing during sleep) and osteoarthritis (wearing away of the joints); and the more overweight you are, the more likely you are to have these health problems.
In comparison, healthy and steady weight loss can help improve the harmful effects of being overweight. The latest studies show that by losing as little as 10 to 20 pounds you can dramatically improve your overall health status, whilst significantly diminishing your risk of disease.
In its simplest terms, being obese and overweight usually results from an individual consuming too much sugar and starch; this causes a hormone imbalance and enables you to store fat. This is commonplace in today’s society, where there is an abundance of cheap, sugary, starchy foods, and in which both our occupation and leisure times are becoming increasingly sedentary.

Below is my client Leslie. She is now 4+ stone lighter. She says “I feel so much happier now I am in control of my weight”.
Many people have suggested that this inability to maintain and sustain a healthy weight in the 21st century is due to the way in which the human body adapted to survive a hunter gatherer existence. During evolution, humans faced periods of intermittent food shortages, and had to actively hunt for food. In these times, individuals who were most likely to survive were those who deposited fat reserves during times when food was plenty, to act as an energy reserve when food was scarce. Therefore, humans evolved to be able to store fat. In today’s society in Europe and North America, for example, it appears that such an adaptation is actually detrimental, as food is rarely, if ever, scarce these days and storing fat leads to the development of obesity.
