Overeating, which means subsequent obesity, harms not only the figure, but also health. Why, due to overeating, the work of almost all systems and organs and, in particular, our "motor" - the heart, is disrupted, says the chief freelance gastroenterologist Natalya Klimova.
The older the harder it gets
The older we are, the more difficult it becomes to maintain a healthy weight. This is where age matters. Doctors recommend stopping food when a person can eat the same amount. The second important rule is the speed of food intake: the slower a person eats, the more thoroughly he chews food, the faster he is satiated, he feels pleasure from eating. And what is important while eating, it looks beautiful.
The misery of sharing
Overeating and gluttony affect primarily the work of the heart, liver, pancreas: obesity of organs occurs and their work is disrupted. In addition, with an increase in body weight, the proportion of the fat component increases, blood in the body, as is known, is 1/13 of the weight, and adipose tissue does not contain a large number of blood vessels. The heart works with a load, if you add the deposition of fat in the vessels, then a pathology of the heart is formed - hypertension and atherosclerosis. And it is enough to sometimes take a course on weight loss by limiting the amount of food and the use of fatty, salty, sweet and fried foods.
In the liver, neutral fat is deposited, leading to obesity of the organ, in the future to the development of cirrhosis. The load on the pancreas sooner or later leads to chronic pancreatitis and diabetes mellitus.
And imagine how hard it is from excess weight to the joints and spine! The sooner you get rid of the bad habit of overeating, the faster you will cope with hypertension and articular syndrome. Just remember that to fight obesity, you need constant exercise. Overweight people find it difficult to select drugs, since they have a bunch of diseases against the background of excess weight.
The harm of overeating affects all organs that are involved in the digestion process. To digest an increased amount of food, our poor organs are constantly working at an increased rate, which leads to premature wear and tear: the functioning of the pancreas is disrupted, which can lead to diabetes mellitus and pancreatitis. Heart attacks and strokes are considered serious vascular complications, and obesity contributes to an increase in blood pressure and the development of these complications.
How to force yourself to eat less:
first, develop a diet;
secondly, reduce the amount of salty, spicy and fatty foods in your diet, reduce sugar consumption, that is, remove fast food and sugary carbonated drinks from the diet. The body needs sugar, but it is found in fruits, vegetables and dark chocolate;
third, cut back on the portion! Use a smaller plate for food to give the impression that there is enough food.
