Dealing With Obesity

By Hans Diehl, M.D.

What Are some positive ways to deal with obesity? The strategy for successfully controlling obesity is threefold:

1. Eat more food “as grown,” simply prepared, without all the sugar, grease, and salt.

2. Increase the rate at which calories are burned by increasing physical activity and muscle size.

3. Make these two lifestyle practices a permanent part of life.

Begin by eating generous amounts of high-fiber foods like whole grains, vegetables, fruits, potatoes, yams and beans. Omit as much fat and sugar from the diet as possible. Cut back on refined and processed foods and snacks. These engineered taste sensations are stuffed with calories and depleted of nutrients.

Use animal products such as meat, eggs, ice cream and cheese very sparingly. They have no fiber and are loaded with fat. You really don’t need them at all!

This kind of eating plan, plus a brisk daily walk, will help you lose one to two pounds a week.

You can fight creeping obesity, push up your energy level, improve your digestion and feel good every day—beginning right now!
