Obesity Video Counselling

Obesity

Obesity is a silent killer and an epidemic that is growing at alarming rate. Someone who is obese will have more body fat than the average person and is at risk of contracting a range of lifestyle conditions, including heart problems, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Many obese people find it nearly impossible to lose weight, no matter what they do. They often end up on the yo-yo dieting cycle, where they would lose some weight on each new fad diet, just to regain double as soon as they stop the diet. Scientists have proven again and again that the only formula for successful weight loss and permanent maintenance of your ideal weight is to burn more calories than you consume.

The main reasons for obesity in healthy individuals is binge eating, and snacking when they are not really hungry. Emotional eating is very common too and many people with obesity issues tend to eat when they are stressed, happy or bored.

If there is no medical reason for your obesity, you should consider speaking to a therapist. Therapy from a psychologist or counsellors  who is experienced in obesity-related issues will help you to explore the emotional blockages that stop you from losing weight. A range of therapy approaches will be used help you to establish the factors that cause you to over-eat and help you to find ways to better manage your emotions. Your therapist will help you set goals for your psychological and physical health to ensure that once you have lost all your weight, you can maintain it and feel good about yourself.

If you are looking for a counsellor or psychologist who offers counselling approaches to address your obesity issues, you may want to search the directory to find a professional whose approach will suit you best.
