Despite growing recognition of the problem, the obesity epidemic increases in the United States (42% adults obese), Canada (28% adults obese) and many other parts of the world, recording high numbers. Obesity affects every segment of a person from race, social, economic level, and gender.
In today’s episode, I discuss obesity in adults with Ph.D. Dr. Leigh Vanderloo from ParticipACTION.
We cover topics such as:
- Importance of the BMI scale and how it is used to determine obesity levels
- Over-reliance on the “I want it now” mentality and how that contributes to being overweight and unhealthy
- Society’s views of obesity, body image and what is considered healthy
- Why obesity is a disease and how this can benefit people to live a healthier life
