How to say no to obesity for good?

What causes obesity?

Obesity is not a problem of weak will or laziness. It is a disease that has developed into a worldwide epidemic. Globally, one in four people are obese, in the Czech Republic it is one in five.

Obesity is caused primarily by a bad diet and overeating. However, it is also influenced by various other factors including a lack of physical activity, a sedentary lifestyle, genetic factors that affect metabolism and the ability to burn fat, as well as eating habits in the family play and other hormonal and psychological factors.

Why is it wrong to be obese?

Changing your diet and lifestyle is not easy, but the health risks related to obesity are simply too serious to do nothing. Obese people face a higher risk of cardiovascular diseases, heart attacks, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and mental health problems. All that makes obesity a serious health issue you should not underestimate.

Do you need to worry?

Do you think you are overweight or obese? The so-called Body Mass Index can help you find out. A simple calculation method will tell you if you should pay more attention to your weight.

Being obese does not mean feeling obese

A British study found out that, surprisingly, only 10% of obese people actually admit their condition. The respondents often didn’t rate their weight as obesity and most of them were not aware of any serious health risks. The surprising results are probably caused by the fact that people tend to compare themselves with their overweight relatives and friends and to play down the seriousness of their problems.

When I decided to lose weight, I weighed 157 kg. I suffered from arthritis and the doctors recommended me a joint replacement. I didn’t want to have that surgery and started looking for an alternative solution. A spa treatment turned out to be a good one. In ten months I managed to reduce my weight to 102 kg.

During the first weeks of the Fit & Slim programme, I wasn’t able to walk more than 200 metres with a crutch. It was hard, but I didn’t give up. Thanks to the great medical staff, I learned how adjust my diet and I started to move, I swam a lot and went to the sauna.

My family and friends were excited and very supportive. And I saw the results every week. Now, after ten months, I can walk from the Thermal Hotel to a shopping centre five kilometres away! I feel great and I look forward to coming back. But this time not as a spa guest, but to see the International Film Festival.
