Nowadays, almost every single person struggles to maintain a proper weight and has issues with excess pounds. Namely, it is not that easy to be in shape even if you regularly exercise or a physically active, mostly due to our changed diet which is based on unhealthy and fast foods.
Even more alarming is the fact that a growing number of children are obese, some of them even born thus. For instance, there are certain communities in India where 40% of the population is overweight. What’s more, according to statistics, it is predicted that half of the world’s population will have weight issues soon.
Moreover, obesity leads to numerous other health problems, including an increased risk of diabetes, cardiac problems, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, digestive disorders, gout, ulcers, as well as physical and psychological stress.
However, obese people eat more than their body needs. Namely, it has been shown that 1/3 of all the people in the world population eats 50% more food than they actually need. Apparently, if all people consume just the amount of food they really need, we can easily solve the problems with the shortage of water and food.
