obesity OVERVIEW

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, and/or body water. Both terms mean that a person's weight is greater than what's considered healthy for his or her height.  Obesity happens over time when you eat more calories than you use. The balance between calories-in and calories-out differs for each person. Factors that might affect your weight include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods, and not being physically active.  Obesity increases your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and some cancers. If you have obesity, losing even 5 to 10% of your weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases. For example, that means losing 10 to 20 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds.


A recent Harvard University study determined that approximately only 1% of obese Americans that attempt to lose weight will be successful in taking off the weight and keeping it off.   At Recharge we want to improve on these odds of success by helping our clients identify the problems and get to the root of why they over eat.   Obesity is an eating disorder similar to alcoholism or drug addiction, so by simply concentrating on the problem without identifying what causes the problem, or the trigger, will most likely result in failure.  Obesity has as much to do with, stress triggers, sleep problems, hydration, positive relationships, chronic fatigue, alcohol consumption as it does with food choices.  The obesity therapy plan at Recharge addresses all of the conditions the lead to obesity at the same time to help our clients finally get the results that they desperately want.

Personality characteristics in obesity and relationship with successful weight loss

Compared with lean subjects, obese subjects in the community scored higher in novelty seeking (19.7±5.9 vs 16.2±6.0, P<0.05), lower in Persistence (4.1±1.8 vs 4.8±1.7, P<0.05) and lower in self-directedness (32.1±7.6 vs 34.3±6.6, P<0.05.) Patients enrolled in the WUWMP scored higher than obese persons in the general population in both Reward Dependence (17.1±4.2 vs 15.7±4.3, P<0.05) and cooperativeness (36.9±5.4 vs 34.5±6.2, P<0.05). Patients who were successful in losing weight (>10% weight loss) after 22 weeks of behavioral therapy scored lower in novelty seeking than those who were unsuccessful in losing weight (<5% weight loss) (17.6±5.9 vs 20.2±5.9, P<0.05).
