Held on the 4th of March, did you know for this year’s World Obesity Day, the mission is to help people understand the scale and impact of obesity around the world?
To date, 800 million people around the world are living with obesity (that’s almost 130 times the population of Singapore) and the medical consequences of obesity is estimated to cost over $1 trillion by 2025.
These numbers may sound alarming but people diagnosed with obesity face the ever increasing challenge of managing their condition. Lack of physical activity, mental stress coupled with increasing availability of meals high in calories but low in nutrition are some factors that most people may encounter. Genetic factors and pre-existing medical conditions may also contribute to the rising rates of obesity.
The key to managing obesity is to understand that better nutrition for every body means happier, healthier and longer lives for everybody. You are not alone in your journey in managing obesity.
